Today's member spotlight is Amanda Mitchell, owner of Soothing Palms Massage in Wautoma, Wisconsin.
Q: What inspired you to be a massage therapist?
A: What inspired me to be a massage therapist was my passion for helping people, and after receiving my first massage in 2007. I knew I wanted to get into a career that was not stressful, something that I could use to help people, and make them feel good!
Q: How long have you been doing massage?
A: I've been a massage therapist for over 5 years.
Q: What is your favorite thing about being an MT?
Q: What do you feel is the most challenging issue for massage therapists?
Q: What advice would you give to other MT’s to help build their business?
A: My advice to help build business is don't say no to a new opportunity and get your business online if you aren't already. My number one way to get people to come to you and know you are there to help, is to get out in front of an audience - in my case vendor expo's. Give them a chair massage and offer a special to entice them to book a full appointment with you. This has been working for me for 2 years now.
