I thought as a good business owner and a competent licensed massage therapist that every client needed to leave happy or it was a thumbs down. I had my “aha moment” this week and let it settle into my soul — I can’t make everyone happy! In the past many talented and professional massage therapists and various business owners had told me “you won’t be able to please everybody.” Now that I “get it” I’m really okay with it. It’s not a reflection on me or my skill set. We all have preferences.
It’s kinda like a Popeyes chicken sandwich vs. a Chick-fil-A sandwich. Which is better? It depends on who you are and what you like.
One thing is for sure: I’m always going to do my best because I truly enjoy what I do and I know massage makes a difference!
