About Shelene

Hi, I am Shelene Taylor and I absolutely love our field!

I started my practice from scratch and went from struggling to a multi-million dollar, multi location business in Tucson, Arizona. My vision is to show MT's how to combine their purpose with effective action to create profitable practices. My company IAMBIZ provides premier training, proven tools and mentoring to ambitious holistic practice owners.

As an international coach, speaker and author I share my experince and wisdom so that you are lifted up and supported in taking action towards creating the business of your dreams!  Visit for some free information!  The Massage Marketing Brilliance workbook is exactly what I use in my 5 locations - so check it out!

What's Your Money Mindset?

Fear is a natural and reasonable response to many things in life, like danger! Our brains are hard wired for the flight or fight response but often times we live in the “What If” fear and worry mode. This is anticipatory fear. While the flight or fight fear response can save our lives, the anticipatory fear just sabotages our dreams and lives. Most fears are nothing more than a state of mind – which we can change by just changing our thoughts. Now most of us come to this worry and fear state of… Continue

Looks like you have got some good ideas. I checked out rubs and your other business website. I really liked what you have done with rubs website. I'm a massage therapist however, my full time job is teaching for a local community college. I teach web design, computer repair, networking, security, electronics & massage therapy. I love both, teaching and massage therapy. I have a small website that I have for local web exposure. I would like to add a page like you have on rubs, "the body" that's cool! Good Luck, it looks like your an overachiever! :-)
