I am going to the Utah College Of Massage Therapy, at their Lindon Campus.
Thank you everyone for your welcoming messages. Although I understand as a MT, it will not by any means be "easy"...I guess what I meant by that comment is more that I will be in more control than I am now. I am in charge of a support department for a small company right now, and there is that constant pressure of keeping customers and my bosses happy. There are days I literally work 20 hours, while not making more than I make now (on salary). I'm underpaid and to be honest under appreciated. It will be nice to have someone walk away after I've done my part and know that they're going to have a better day because of it. I'm naturally a giving person and anywhere I've worked, I have always missed the positive reinforcement and basic "good job" type of feedback. It has always amazed me that companies or people miss out on keeping good employees because those employees feel like they're being worked to the bone, then tossed aside...when a simple thank you would keep them happy and willing to work. Sorry, guess that will be a discussion for a different area
I have been looking for ways to be self-employed, and this just seems to fit in with my goal. I've tried many other ways, and it always came full circle and I was back where I started. I've gone to school in Business Management and Computers, but ended up working in a call center, or still answering to a boss that just didn't seem to care or listen. This is where my schooling as a MT will come in...I will be in full control of my future.
