Easily Have Clients Return When You Give Them The “RW”

Easily Have Clients Return When You Give Them The “RW”

If you are like most massage therapists,  you’ve been scrambling to fit clients into a busy holiday schedule, coordinating gift certificate sales and working extra hours to be able to take a few days off.  It is a jam packed time of year for all.  The holidays are over, with the exception of New...

Ugh… I Hate Sales

March 1, 2010
