February 28, 2013
By

I have received the following from the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards.

You Can’t Buy Ethics

I rarely mix my personal life with business but today’s situation warrants a post.  My husband came home with a lot of cash today.  He is a freelance boat captain and had just completed a delivery up the east coast.  Upon presentation of his invoice, his client peeled off several thousand dollars in cash for...

Last week, the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards presented their long-awaited proposal for a new national continuing education approval program.

Remember to tell them, I Will Always Love You

Please allow me to wax a bit poetic. On the eve of Valentine’s Day and also in the wake of a very visible entertainer, Whitney Houston’s untimely death, I am really reflecting on how important it is to live in the present moment and to tell all those we love, how much we love...

Selling Yourself Short

What is wrong with the following statement? FIRE!!!! Ready…aim. It seems silly, counter intuitive and even dangerous to get such important steps this badly out of order. You would not do it with a rifle, why would you do it with your business? Sometimes we are faced with making decisions quickly in business, sometimes...

“Ownership” of Clients

December 6, 2011
By

If you’re an employer of massage therapists, or you are a massage therapist who’s is employed by someone else, who “owns” the client? The short answer is, no one. People have the right to go where they choose, and to patronize whatever massage therapist they choose to patronize. The long answer is a little...

Hotel Security

July 27, 2011
By

On June 28, 2011 I posted a blog on Hotel Insecurity. That post addressed the issue of the high percentage of sexual harassment in the hotel industry. On the Body_Work Professional Discussion Forum, Toni Roberts posted a great commentary about the Newsweek article. She gave me permission to adapt it and share it with...
