Do you Have a Permit to Carry That? 5/5 (37)

A few weeks ago, I was visiting my daughter in Washington, DC. One of our goals for the trip was to do a little shopping–specifically to find a new spring purse!

Unless you are a woman, you just don’t know how many details you need to think about when trying to find the PERFECT everyday purse.

For example–here is an important consideration…My sister once told me the bigger your purse is, the smaller your butt looks…The take home message here is, when it comes to purses, size OBVIOUSLY matters.

Here are some other considerations:Purse Collage

  • Is it fashionable?
  • Does it fit your personality?
  • Is it durable enough to last through the season?
  • Will it get dirty easily?
  • Does it fit comfortably over your shoulder so you can keep your hands free while walking?
  • Does it have a convenient place for your cell phone and business cards? (This is a MUST!)
  • Does it have a great little spot to clip your keys so that you can find them easily?

Finally, there needs to be some nice little secret hiding places to hide important personal items! What type of secret little items you may ask? Well, everyone is different, but if you are an acupuncturist, your needs are EXTRA special. I’ll tell you what you will ALWAYS find in the secret hiding places in my purse…

Stimplus Portable kitI never leave home without my EXTRA Stimplus Pro–whether I’m traveling around the world, spending the evening at a dinner party OR running errands around town with my family. The Stimplus Pro is a must have, and I just don’t leave home without it!

My daughter and I had a blast walking all over DC trying to find just the right purse. My new purse is the perfect size, fashionable, durable, and has room to carry EVERYTHING I need.

How many Stimplus Pro’s do you own? I have one for each treatment room AND an extra one for my purse.

If you don’t have one for your purse (or briefcase), you are missing out on some really great opportunities. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve given quick little treatments for family and friends. I am constantly asked for my business card because I use my EXTRA Stimplus Pro in these social situations. It’s not only a great resource in my life, it’s also a great marketing tool!

You are already an interesting person simply because you are an acupuncturist. Use your Stimplus Pro and auriculotherapy as a conversation piece. People will be ESPECIALLY interested to see your ability to alleviate pain by treating the ear WITHOUT needles. We’ve got a few options to choose from…just click below!

Happy Spring!
