There are a lot of things I don’t talk about on the blog. I feel like somethings just don’t need to be talked about – I value a level of privacy – and I’m pretty modest person about a lot of things- in life and in this space. But today or share a little something with you.
Some of you know about an opportunity has presented with in April 2010. An opportunity that I, and many others, considered a chance of a lifetime. A “dream job”. For few years I was massage therapist. A professional massage therapist and I opened my first brick-n-mortar business as a massage therapist working with people providing rehabilitative health solutions. I helped a lot of people move better, heal and feel better. It was a very gratifying job. In April 2010 I was presented with the opportunity that would allow me to meet some truly iconic people. An International Massage team I was sure was a stretch, and I had two options – fly to New York or audition over an hour and a half away. I auditioned locally on my birthday. I made the team. I was welcomed onto one of the most elite massage teams in the world serving the biggest named in the music industry.
I met bands that are truly amazing. The drummer, Rob Koritz, of Darkstar Orchestra hugged me because he was so excited I was there to fix his back so he could play the concert that night. I interacted with all of Poison and Mötley Crüe, and I learned a Bret Michaels looks nothing like the Bret Michaels we know without his makeup on but he’s always wearing that Navy Bandanna. And make a very gentle natured, kind Colbie Callait & her entire band are truly unbelievably kind. I massaged and chatted with Rick Allen, the one armed drummer from Def Leppard, along with the rest of the band. I got to see so many stages are so many bands backstage and truly amazing concerts. I learned that the Gipsy Kings are French, sing in Spanish and speak no English but they are one of the most respectful bands I have worked with. And that’s just a few. I’ve seen the ins and outs of venues, toured tour buses. I even had the opportunity to go on tour with one of the biggest names in pop music but missed the opportunity because I had to leave in 2 days and I didn’t have a passport.
