How did you get started grooming?

I know that a lot of groomers are on here so I was wondering how you got a big business going. Did you just keep practicing and practicing and then finally got really good or did you read books and take online classes? I am trying to learn more and more so one day I can be something big in the dog grooming business.

I apprenticed under a master groomer. Schools are fine, but don't teach you what you need to know. They only teach the basics and you still have to go to a shop and learn how to do patterns. Online courses don't help much. Yeah, you may get a certificate, but you don't have any hands on experience. Nobody is going to hire a groomer that learned online.
