Unsolicited testimonial

I just had to share this amazing testimonial that some one e-mailed to me:

"I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the class and how much I took away from it!!! It is very hard for me to relax and turn "off my brain," your class really helped me to do that. Thank you so much for everything, you helped me become more familiar and comfortable with a body that still feels so foreign to me. After losing so much weight; in my head I am still 240 lbs and sometimes (alot of times) it is hard to disconnect from that. You where SO patient and encouraging with me, and I can not tell you how much that means!!! You are an amazing person and a great teacher!!! Thank you so much and I look forward to taking Level Two and spreading the word to all my girlfriends!!!"

Passing the lap dance torch...

Today I felt like I really passed the torch with the exotic dance and lap dance classes to my contract instructor njredhead. I was there as her assistant this afternoon and saw her in action. She was really funny and managed to keep the girls laughing even while teaching something as profound as tapping into a side of yourself that society has taboos about. And her humor really helped the girls relax and have a great time. Everyone had fun and when the workshop was over, girls kept coming up to her to compliment her and tell her how much they enjoyed it. They even asked if she taught the pole classes, which means they want to continue and take more classes with her! Plus she loves teaching the workshops!

She's skilled, she's smart, she knows the material, she's funny, she enjoys it and my students love her. I couldn't be happier!

At the same time she was teaching my workshop, another one of my instructors was teaching my pole classes. It's a freaky experience, truly. I always dreamed of the day when I would have my own business. I just never thought I would have people working for me...let alone two of them doing so at the same time in two different locations.
