Surgery, said the doctor when my grandfather injured his back. But Grandpa went to an acupuncturist instead. In just five treatments he was back on his boat, catching yellowtail, tuna, and flying fish. I was fascinated and decided to make acupuncture my life's work. So I became an apprentice in Tokyo, where I studied acupuncture, bone setting, and massage. I then won a scholarship to China, the birthplace of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The goal of my service that I like to do is to have a patient that have coming to my office to be treats as they would like to be treated and also I do best service for my patients

Well, I always been very social. I remember my best friend telling me "Wow Vicky! Your very good with people, ever thought about using that to your advantage?" I had a good laugh to that, but she was right. Most people have natural talents and being social happened to be mine. So when i first found out about Mary Kay, I decided to give it a shot. The job itself is all networking,and i was delighted by the fact. I started in rural parts of my city and slowly began venturing into other cities and states. I was slowly becoming a little celebrity, that jumped all over the country. People knew when I was in town, I would hold seminars and conferences, inviting all who wanted to be able to grasp a pliable future. My initial goal was to have fun by taking taking a risk, but my new goal was to better people's lives throughout my products and give them a new perspective to life, that was backed up with experience.
