The Lazy Hazy Days in #yeg

Have you noticed something in the last few weeks?There’s a general “slow down, go slower, even slower than that” feeling with the population in #yeg. This is great news! We need to do this regularly. But with all the events of the last many couple of years we haven’t been able to do it. There …

Income Support

We made a difference. All good things must come to an end. This was the best way to end. I started work on a project with the Government of Alberta last month. You could call it a gig, I suppose. Initially, it seemed straight forward: call people, ask them some questions, and move on. WOW! …

Income Support

This is what I do when I’m not massaging. This should probably be a part of every Alberta workers’ emergency toolkit. My current contract is with the Alberta government. The project deals with Alberta Income Support (https://www.alberta.ca/income-support.aspx). People apply for it and get connected with a Career and Employment Consultant. CEC is somewhat easier to …

Rest, Relax, and Rejuvenate

Post-pandemic time. Getting back into the flow won’t happen on its own. Time and peace of mind must be wrenched back from habits formed during this pandemic.

Win, win, win!

Well, I have to say I’m pleased. Ecstatic might be a better word for it. The booking/scheduling calendar has proven itself. Thank you Booking Calendar for this no cost plugin. I am tempted to explore what the “paid for” version offers. Perhaps down the road. The $79.95 morning massages are proving popular! This makes me …

Is the search complete? I’ll admit it. I enjoy fiddling with this website.I look on it as a work in progress.I do get folks contacting me making a website for me, but I turn them down.I’d prefer to spend time learning something on my own than to spend money on a complete stranger’s idea of …

Well, I Gone and Done It

I have a booking calendar. I actually had a booking calendar from a company named Calendarspots. The link to them is here: www.calendarspots.com . Great product. Great company. There was only one problem: nobody wanted to book with the calendar. Prospective clients would call or text to ask about availabilities and if I directed them …

A (Wrong) Reputation about Massage

It Must Be Corrected We have all heard it. I doubt most of us have questioned it. In fact, it’s so pervasive in the massage world that we have simply come to accept it as the truth. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. It is this issue: youtu.be/8WwjtTDARCA I’m here today to clear …
