A Repeating ThemeI glanced back over the posts from the year and there is definitely a trend. Too many people don’t like their jobs. Even here in Aspen, there are too many people who don’t feel in control of their lives and are unhappy. We see them every day, and honestly, it breaks my heart. My whole life has been centered on helping people reach their goals, whether that is in a healthy lifestyle or loving what they do. While I am grateful for all the successes, I also want to make sure we help as many as we can.
What Can You DoFirst, check out our program here. This page describes AMI’s courses to become a Certified Massage Therapist. I lead you here because I want you to compare this to other programs. We have worked hard to develop a course that not only teaches how to do massage therapy, but also to provide our students more hands-on training, opportunities to practice, and give them the skills they need to market themselves and fulfill their dreams. I know if you look around you’ll quickly see we stand out above high volume programs that teach from a book, not from touch.
Second, visit us. We have regular events to introduce future students to the instructors and explain the highs and lows of entering this career. We believe anyone can succeed if they are committed to doing their best and our course is no different. You’ll find our entire staff is fully dedicated to helping all our students reach their goals. To date, every student that has gone through our program has passed their certification exams. Some have started their own business, some are working in high end spas, and some are working here.
Third, consider sending someone to massage school. I know this is a big one, but if you know someone that hates their job I encourage you to help them find a better one, one they will love. Maybe you can’t afford the whole tuition, offer to pay a portion of it or buy the books. If they have children, offer to babysit during class time or when they need time to study. It may be as simple as going to an informational event with them so they aren’t so nervous. You have the power to help someone change their life forever.
