the First 90-days…

Hello Members! I am truly honored to be writing today in the President’s Blog – there have been many years that I have served where the chapter did not have such an efficient, fast way for the members to connect; specifically, with the commentary and updates from the chapter President.  I am happy to say: all the Nevada Chapter Board of Directors volunteers, chapter volunteers and Delegates are available via email and that you may post publicly or email me privately regarding the topics in this forum! Now, on with this month’s blog… I was elected to serve as a…

Report: August 17, 2012 chapter member meeting

Our member meeting at Tuscany Suites & Casino in Las Vegas last Friday was a great time for all: many members got to meet colleagues (some of whom live "just around the corner") and share some good food and information. Sally Hacking joined the chapter, from Florida, as it's Government Relations Consultant - she gave the attending members a brief overview of her role with the chapter and advice that she has given and may yet give the chapter regarding the promotion of the massage therapy profession in Nevada.

Report: 2012 AMTA-NV Chapter State Convention: Traditionally Yours!

The Nevada chapter’s 2012 educational event and Annual General Meeting was held with its trademarked member meeting and continuing education opportunity again this year, but at a new venue for the Convention. The Tuscany Suites & Casino in Las Vegas turned out to be a very good choice, according to some polled members, when it came to the site, room style, eats, and general feel for the purpose of a meeting and class.  The chapter was very happy to secure the venue in April and have Tuscany host the finer aspects of sleeping, eating (in the several restaurants), and attending…

Marketing Strategies – Some Options & Some Considerations

Last time we talked about ways to market yourself and improve business.  This time, I want to spend a few lines discussing coupons, Groupons, and marketing strategies. Everyone is looking for a bargain nowadays.  We all shop at Walmart, or Costco, or we clip coupons to save money.  Have you thought how those companies make so much money?  The answer is very simple:  It is called “volume.” That’s it: volume.  If, during your week, you perform an average of 20 massages at $70 each, your gross income for that week, before expenses, is $1,400.  Obviously, if you want to make…

Keeping A Sense Of Wonder

As I sit and ponder all things that bring wonder to life, it occurs to me that when tasks and duties are more controlled, our time is freed up to do the things in life that bring that sense of wonder.  I have met those people who always seem to have time to take a walk on the beach, spend time with family, or even just sit and be still, and, yet, they seem to juggle multiple duties and manage busy work schedules.  And yet so many of us are stressed to the max, with little or no time for…

President’s Blog – Finding Your True Path

Good morning, This morning I drew my usual Oracle card to see what the day would bring.   The quote that follows is a message for us all from the ancients “you are entering into a time of profound quickening and transformation.  You have come to the edge of what you have known yourself to be.  Cauac beckons you to step into a fire that changes every level of your being, even the underlying structures of your life.  Step into the unknown – your metamorphosis has begun!” So many of us have doubts about the future.  What will life be like…
