Review:

Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' FavoriteMolly Kurland, massage professional,has shared her knowledge and wisdom in her new book, Successful Strokes: A Realistic Guide to Creating a Lucrative Massage Business. The booktakes us through the process of navigating the trials and tribulationsof starting your own massage business. Covering everything from basicsin marketing to accounting, to avoiding burnout, this book is wellthought out, helpful, and probably a good bet for anyone looking tostart their own business.

The addition of links and websites that you can use for additional tools in your own progress and success was very nice. I particularly enjoyedthe friendly and approachable tone that Molly takes in her writing. Youreally feel like she cares about you and making your businesssuccessful. Her knowledge and accessibility make her a great author,particularly for the self-help variety of books. Successful Strokesoffers insightful tips and tricks that a seasoned veteran of the massage business has learned along her own journey. Molly supplies materials,lists, and appointment schedule examples to help even the most novicemassage therapist get started. Many of the tips were also helpful to anentrepreneur not involved with massage, just business. Overall, a greatread for any business-minded masseuse!
