Real men do go to the spa
There's a new kind of man in society. He takes good care of his skin, his hair and his nails. He goes for regular facials, massages and pedicures. He takes care of his grooming. And yet he is still a man's man. The game has changed and women want more from their men.
I am proud to say I am a NCEA Certified Esthetician & NCEA member. To become a NCEA certified esthetician and member would be something I highly recommended to all licensed estheticians who want to raise the standards in this field. It is an easy process as long as you do your studies and all the effort is well worth building a strong coalition of like minded professionals is very much needed and in the long run it will help all of us as a whole. To become certified helps to set the professions bar higher for yourself and others as a skin care professional.

Harvard Business Review

Why tough teachers get good results
The Wall Street Journal
American journalist and editor Joanne Lipman writes: "I had a teacher once who called his students 'idiots' when they screwed up. He was our orchestra conductor, a fierce Ukrainian immigrant named Jerry Kupchynsky, and when someone played out of tune, he would stop the entire group to yell, 'Who eez deaf in first violins!?' He made us rehearse until our fingers almost bled. He corrected our wayward hands and arms by poking at us with a pencil. Today, he'd be fired. But when he died a few years ago, he was celebrated."
Learning by teaching
Contributing writer Dennis Solis writes: "Conchita Razon, mother of singer Martin Nievera, once said that every life has a defining moment.
For some people, it is a triumphant event. For others, an inevitable predicament. As for me, the turning point was when I became a classroom teacher.
Who would have thought someone who dreamed of becoming a print or television journalist would end up as one of the so-called 'unsung heroes?'
The decision to become a classroom teacher changed me tremendously."
