I graduated in 2003 and have been practicing since. I own and operate At Your Door Massage, an outcall massage business, here in Las Vegas.
Economy here is still horrible. Many therapists I know who work for Spas are having their hours cut and their pay rate cut. My business is doing fine as I saw this economic crisis coming as well as I'm huge on building professional relationships with clients and customer service. So, for the most part, I've kept the majority of my clients and still are getting new clients as well.
Most of the therapists I know are great at 'actual massage,' but are severly lacking in communication skills, how to attract clients, how to keep them re-scheduling, etc., etc. You know, the 'business' side of our profession ;)
So, from time to time you'll see me post here and on Facebook about how to improve our business and our industry. I get a bit long winded at times, so be warned ;)
Friend me on Facebook at Kristopher Kelley or find my business pages, At Your Door Massage and Las Vegas Massage if you would like.
Thanks for your time and it's a pleasure to meet you!
