Well, how about some good news?

At long last I got my congratulatory passing notification from the Oregon Board of Massage Therapists. I actually got a rather high score, so that was extra gratifying. My licensing application will be in the mail today, so I think I'll be holding a license by the end of the month. Yahoo! Next step? Finding a space to practice in, and passing out my card like crazy. And shelling out a lot of money before I can make any for the license, malpractice insurance, and space rental. But no need to rain on my own parade, this is great news!

Nice work! And I bet you didn't even need those red shoes to do it! Let's hope you can find a way to create a business that is restful and completely stress free and contributes to a return to wellness... :-)

Mom-- my thoughts exactly! I don't think I'll actually do much beyond a little marketing until October, then I expect to work a max of 10 hours a week, which I believe will be enjoyable and healing for me. If I can just avoid feeling stressed about how to go about it...

Yea, Ariana!!!
Is there a chiropractor in the area that you could team up with? That way, you would not have to set the place up by yourself. When I go for an adjustment, I get a massage first-it's the best part!
