I would recommend checking out http://www.vistaprint.com They have offers for free or deeply discounted stuff all of the time. You will just pay for shipping. I haven't paid for a business card or brochure in eons! They really do a great job. Only one time did I have a slightly subpar product and th...

Thanks for the input. It sounds perfect! Another question, is there an additional charge each month for the credit card processing (aside from the % taken off each sale by the cc companies) or is it really just the $29/month? Can you post or email a linkto your website - I'd love to see how it looks...

Anyone use mindbody online?

I'm curious if anyone has or is using http://www.mindbodyonline.com It looks pretty fantastic. I haven't called to find out if they tack on extra fees for credit card processing etc. For a solo therapist its only $29 month after set-up which seems pretty reasonable to me for all of the functionality...

Before you jump into this at $59 per month... while its very inclusive and sounds like a very nice service... you will pay indefintely for the service/website.

L4 fracture Hx, Harrington Rod, slight scoliosis (long)

I had a client last week with some serious back/hip issues due to an MVA in 1988 (she was 16) that fractured L4 and resulted the development of scoliosis (during the healing process) which then resulted in a harrington rod being fused to the left of her spinal column to keep her spine straight. She ...

Re: How much to pay in rent?

Terab is correct in saying that you should think about your ideal location first and work from there.  If you want to rent "part time" you may want to share a space with another MT.  This would likely mean lower rent as well.  You should also consider what that rent gets you.  Do you want to schedul...
