get ready to test out - tip
Use your own body as a mirror. When you face your client you create a reflection. Stand up tall and they will too. Press your shoulders down, they will likely follow. Turn sideways and scoop out your midsection with your own "sandwich hands" on your body and you will get a quick visible response. Use this cueing technique to save you words, and hands on time. It's effective and efficient.
Scheduling reminder: If you are thinking about your final Exam and Test Outs - you'll be scheduling with Johnny Pruitt. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org to set it up!
