You’ve heard me say it before . . . learning how to grow your practice is a ton of work. But it shouldn’t feel like pulling teeth! And believe it or not, it can actually be quite a bit of fun.
You heard me right. The process can include fun and enjoyment! If you’ve been working on your practice for a while and you’re feeling frustrated or demoralized or just confused, then I hope you’ll get on over and apply for the OWN Your Practice program. There are some really cool people in there who have already been through the program and also folks who are just getting ready to start!
I want you to be one of them.
You don’t have to suffer through the process of building your massage practice. In fact, this process can be one of the most enlivening things you’ve ever done!
For example, I’ve met some of my best friends as a result of starting and maintaining my practice over all of these years. I’ve also learned and grown and healed as a person. And, of course, there’s the the whole making-a-living thing! I’m incredibly proud that my business has been my sole source of income for over a decade, allowing me to pay off over $65K in debt and live my life in a way that feels deeply meaningful to me.
And here’s a rather surprising secret . . .
Growing and running my business has also helped me realize just how little money actually means to me. I want stability and so I make my business stable – which means I keep my business profitable. But beyond that, my values are about experiences, not about money. My stable practice has allowed me to take off as much time as I need for family stuff, spend time with my friends in meaningful ways, continually pursue my childhood dream of writing novels, teach important skills I’ve learned to others, and more. It’s also allowed me to be an integral part of a group of practitioners from whom I’ve learned more than any school could ever teach me!
If you have deep values you want to be living out in your life, then having a thriving, STABLE business is one of the best ways to make that happen.
And imagine how nice . . . how much more relaxing . . . how much more fun it will be to go through the practice-building process with other dedicated, focused people who are doing the same.
If you’re ready to meet other people who are as driven and curious as you are . . . if you’re ready to really get your massage practice going . . . if you’re ready to find some fun in the whole process . . . then get yourself on in here!
I just sent out the first program contract of the year and it felt so good!
Remember, when you have the right supports in place, a lot of the practice-growing work can actually feel like fun. And believe me, if you’re gonna’ do this, you’re gonna need as much fun as you can get.
I’m here for you. I want to see your application this week.
Let’s get this show on the road!
