The arrival of the Coronavirus has sent shockwaves through our lives. Schools are going online, businesses are ordering employees to work from home, and events are being canceled. Our everyday routines are quickly changing as the world tries to reduce the transmission and spread of COVID-19.
As a massage therapist, you're likely wondering how this will impact your business over the next few months, and you're not alone. Over the past week, businesses such as spas, restaurants, hair salons, and gyms have closed their doors temporarily to reduce the risk of transmission....more

I've put this note together from a place of love and...more
Succeeding in the massage business is no simple task. You've got busy clients, multiple massage jobs and plenty of competition.

It is easy to become overwhelmed and as a result, not take any action.
I know how you feel. Especially in the beginning of my massage career, I was easily paralyzed by fear (that I wouldn't really be able to grow a practice), overly anxious (that I...more
Ever said the words, "I can do it on my own."
I sure have! And I have the battle wounds to prove it too. What if I told you you didn't have to get all those 'lone wolf' battle wounds and spin your wheels foolishly. What if you could have guidance, support and learn from someone that has gone before? Imagine growing your massage practice more efficiently and with clear direction. Would that interest you?
The number one way you can grow a wildly profitable massage practice faster, more efficiently and without as much exhaustion and confusion is by hiring a massage...more
Okay okay...a cute puppy is not the key to your massage success. But seriously, in relation to massage, when was the last time you considered your definition of success ?
Usually, when we really take the time to go through this exercise our responses are more developed and refined. Common responses often include:
- Wanting more time and flexibility to spend with our family, friends and on our other passion-projects
- Wanting the massage practice to be booked consistently at least a few weeks in advance

For an industry that is centered around relaxation, restoration, and stress reduction, running a massage therapy business can be incredibly frustrating. This is especially true when it comes to finding new clients and growing your business. The time, money, and energy spent trying to attract new clients can be astronomical and, unfortunately, the costs associated with getting a new client may never be recouped.
If you feel that this has been an ongoing struggle, that you’ve been treading water and can’t seem to grow your business or become more successful, you aren’t alone. Nearly...more
