Brooke Terrabrio loves how rewarding grooming can be, but recognizes that it is easy to get caught up in what other people are doing. Her recommendation to other groomers is to stop comparing yourself to others, learn at your own pace, and embrace your own style. It allows you to enjoy your creativity and to share it with the world without getting caught up in the game of expectations.
