Our mission is to be the leader in business themed continuing education.
Currently, we have one course available for massage therapists in Canada and USA as a way to to help therapists start-up their own massage therapy business.
Our vision is to grow the number of business courses available to massage therapists and other regulated health professionals (such as Dentists, Chiropractors and Naturopaths) and other sectors (such as Finance and Legal).
Some people learn visually, some are theoretical learners; others need a more hands on approach. For most it’s a combination of more than one.
The fact is – people learn differently.
This project started as a way to help more people with starting up a business successfully – ensuring that you have a strategy in place, that the tactics and tools you use will attract the right type of customers and that the experience that your clients have will reinforce the image that they have of your company.
Our first online course, Starting Up, is a way to help massage therapist’s start a business within their profession or to re-position an existing business. This was our first step towards helping a community of entrepreneurs. More courses for different communities will be launched in the coming months.
