There are a lot of steps that one needs to complete in order to become a massage therapist. If you have been working as a masseuse for at least a year, you might have probably understood that in this field you can’t stop learning and improving your skills.
If you really like what you are doing and want to work with people in the future, it is time to boost your career as a massage therapist.
There is no need to stay in your current workplace if you don’t like the schedule, your colleagues or boss. You can find a job in fitness centers, salons, hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, shopping malls, and corporate offices. Also, you can go self-employed and forget about the exhausting schedule or working with people you don’t like. It is the only way to go if you want to achieve more freedom in your life.
You don’t have to leave everything behind since you can always freelance on the side. Once you have a long list of your own clients, you will be able to quit your full-time job.
However, there are a few things that you need to consider. Being self-employed isn’t for everyone; that’s why you have to weigh all the pros and cons.
If you work for yourself, you will be able to choose the schedule that fits you best (unfortunately, it isn’t always a case when you have a full-time job). From the other hand, you will need to spend some time promoting yourself and looking for your clients. Self-employment is for you in case you are social, ambitious, organized, and goal-oriented.
