If just like me, you have already been in this ... you won’t be surprise to ear what I am about to tell you: dream and reality is a tidbit ... Did you graduate from massage therapy school
If just like me, you have already been in this business, you won’t be surprise to ear what I am about to tell you: dream and reality is a tidbit different. Did you graduate from massage therapy school with your motivation level up to the ceiling…dropping down to the floor in a matter of couple months? I did.
To be honest, when I got out of school I expected something absolutely different. I dreamt of the freedom of being my own boss. But, I forgot to take into account the enormous number of sacrifices that had to be made to bring this wonderful dream to reality. I made many mistakes before I discovered the missing link to success.
