Hi, I am a very newbie, newcomer. I tried to post something yesterday but I don't see it. Probaby didn't do it at the right place.

I am 54 and just starting out also. Basically, I am terrified. I am doing a home study course. I did work for a groomer as a bather a while back, just for a short time. We didn't get on because she was in a big big hurry to get rich and everytime she hurt one of the dogs I would jump from the screaming and she really didn't like that. I also took my time and was gentle and she really didn't like that.

I am leaving my career as a Military Educational Consultant and coming to the world of grooming. I am a bit nervous and wondering if I am doing the right thing. All I can say is this: something is driving me full speed ahead and I can't think of anything else and can hardly sleep with excitement.
I have decided to invest in any equipment that helps my back and shoulders stay healthy (they are a bit weak now), so if any of you know of a product that can help in that regard I sure would appreciate it. I am a young 54, healthy and strong, but who knows if that will change?

I am divorced, single and loving it, no dating, just enjoying my horses and dogs, cats, birds, etc., and loving the fact that I can do whatever I want when I want and I do not have to cook for ANYone (except the pyrs, we barbeque almost every day-they won't eat canned food-just kibbles and meat). I do have two Great Pyrs which I discovered that I love to groom. I Didn't know that before. Both were rescues and I thought to myself "oh my gosh how will I ever survive all the grooming," but as I say, it relaxes me. I love to see them looking wonderful, it gives me a sense of accomplishment and they are so happy when they are groomed, they feel so up, that it makes it a great experience for me. I will be grooming at a few shelters in my free time soon (for nothing of course-I need to get my hands on). Can't wait to make the sweet shelter dogs look beautiful for adoption days.

I need lots of advice, if you have time, please send it ALL to me. Thanks a bunch.
