I was very surprised by the information and very good material & info. I learned a lot being recently licensed as LMT and being new in this field, I find it hard finding way to promote in a hard economy, a big challenge but I have taken away so much how to find your way through this hard economy.

Thank you for offering this 1-credit marketing course. It was worth reading, and provided unexpected encouragement as well as useful information.

I was so pleased to see that "7 Habits of Successful People" has been used in this course. It is a wonderful resource and I wish that other massage therapists would read it....even if they don't own their own practice. Thank you!!!
