Business Closures (Covid-19)

Many spa and massage businesses have chosen (or been forced) to close during this unprecedented time. Unfortunately, no businesses were prepared for this.

Massage Planner

Starting a massage practice is one of the easiest things to do. At least that’s what every massage therapist turned private practice owner will have you believe.

LinkedIn For Your Massage Practice

There’s no shortage of social media platforms to grow your business.  The popularity of Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat have absorbed many resources and plenty hours of free time.  My preference has always been LinkedIn. I get asked the same question every time I suggest LinkedIn as a platform.  “How do you use LinkedIn to

Are you ready for the rush?

We’re in the midst of the 4th quarter!  Every year the same thing happens.  The 4th quarter makes up a significant portion of our income.  And it seems every year we’re never prepared. The first few years in private practice, I knew the trends.  Slow summers, booming winters, and after Mother’s Day meant death on

10 Lazy Ways To Market

I swear I’m lazy. Especially on the weekends. Wait. Let me not be so hard on myself. I joke that if you want something done quickly, hire a lazy person because they’ll figure out the most efficient way possible to do it. So if you’re lazy…like me…you look for lazy ways to do everything. That

That Tank Top Is SOOO Unprofessional!

Said no client ever! At least not to me.  If you’ve ever heard a client tell you they won’t come back to you because of the length of your sleeves, chances are they aren’t on your table. I’ve received massages in a few different countries.  Private owned, luxury, hotel, franchise…you name it, I’ve been there.

I Heard That Massage Therapists Love To Be Paid In Free Exposure

This must be the message someone shared because it seems that every massage therapist keeps getting asked to work events for free. If you’re new to events or don’t have much experience with them, I want to help you all understand when it’s entirely appropriate for brands to ask you to attend for free, pay

The Sexy Side Of The Spa And Massage Business

If you’re familiar at all with my writing, you knew damn well when I created that title I had no intention of going on about the sexy side of the industry.  You already know the sexy parts.  Daydreaming about the decor of your treatment room.  Fantasizing over square footage and logos.  Business cards, menus, brochures

Bubbles And Farts (Happy Mother’s Day)

Adulting is hard.  Especially during crazy social and political issues concerning us today.  I usually steer clear of controversial topics until I can figure out a way to put a humorous spin on them.  Since I can’t, now whenever anyone attempts to discuss the issues of the world with me, my response is “I’m only worried about
