Another slow day. Finances are going quickly. Trusting that it will pick up and I will be making money again soon.
I didn't really notice this slow period last year as I was still working part-time at my other job. This year, though, it's all the one place. Which is actually pretty rare for a massage therapist. Usually MTs will work in two or three different places and/or have a personal practice on the side.
I'm seriously considering starting up a personal practice. Just to get me through. I think as long as I make under $600 on it I would be okay tax-wise. But do I really want to make under $600 if I could actually make a go of it?
Could I actually make a go of it?
Do I really want to go through the hassle of finding a place to rent, invest in all the paraphernalia that goes with a massage practice, and hang a shingle of my own?
The idea of it terrifies me beyond measure.
Which should be reason enough to do it, right? I mean, you should do the thing that you are afraid to do. I could keep it small to start... just friends and friends of friends. Cash only. Just one or two a week. It would give me grocery money at the very least.
I'm not there yet. But maybe I will be soon. Within the next couple weeks. When I'm down to eating rice three meals a day because I bought a huge bag from Costco two weeks ago and it's the only thing currently in my kitchen that's edible.
But let's keep positive, shall we? At least I'll have the rice!
