10 Things I've learned From My Dog

Things I've learned from my dog that are crucial to running a massage therapy business:

  1. Trust your gut. Listen to your instincts. 
  2. Do what you love.
  3. Be open to receiving.
  4. Take sheer joy in everything you do.
  5. Play a little bit every day. (or even a LOT).
  6. When someone crosses your boundaries, let them know immediately.
  7. There's no such thing as too many squeaky toys.
  8. Discover new things and be open to learning more.
  9. Be a good listener
  10. Be authentic - don't pretend to be something you're not.
Thanks & big sloppy kisses to Iggy for these lessons and more.
