MOTM #353: Your Business Should Help You Thrive with Qiana Thompson

Monday, February 7th, 2022

You (should) know her, you (will) love her, I refer absolutely everyone in the massage therapy world to her, she is my cousin (on my internet side)—she is the one and only, Qiana Thompson (@qiana.sf).

Q is ALWAYS bringing the fire to our conversations, and this episode was no different. She has over 20 years of experience in Massage Therapy and is committed to elevating the profession and helping LMTs make a real income while protecting their energy and providing a service that keeps clients coming back time after time.

This chick gets booked a year in advance. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to listen to what she has to say 😉.

Q’s message is one of showing up with authenticity and creating a business that serves you. Burnout is preventable, energy management can be strategized, and you can absolutely create the life you want as a massage therapist. Drips ain’t the way 😉.
