Happy Anniversary to Me!
by Lisa Poole on Monday, November 02, 2015
I can’t believe that it has reached the 4-year mark. For 4 years now I have been a licensed massage therapist. I insanely decided to go it alone and not get a job with someone else. I have worked hard at becoming better at my craft. I have spent, and continue to spend, a lot of time trying to find the best way to help all of my clients. I struggle with the business side; marketing, networking, advertising, bookkeeping etc etc etc. I always want to do better. For my clients and for myself. I want to be the best therapist and have the best business. It has been a huge challenge that I am proud to work at daily.
I have seen lots and lots and lots of bodies pass through my door and climb on my table. I have heard lots of life stories, from injuries to illness to stresses and joys. I am horrible with names but I remember the stories. I can also admit I am not great with faces. When someone is face down for more than 50% of the time faces fade and muscles come to mind. I have run into clients who I do not remember their name at first but I will recall that they have 2 kids, a cat, a dog and lower back issues. I do remember you my client and think of you. Randomly someone's story will come to mind and I wonder where they have been and how they are.
I look forward to continuing to grow and serve. I have thoughts of expansion. I have classes to take and new techniques to learn in 2016. 2015 was full of personal changes and I look forward to 2016 being full of business growth. I am here for you my client. I want to be the best massage therapist for you. I hope you will join me on my journey of growth and change. In 4 more years, I want to look back and smile at how far we have come.
