One of the first things we work on in the OYP program is about the nitty gritty of starting a business. That can include registering your biz with your Secretary of State, arranging your bank accounts, and making sure your “back-end” stuff is in good order.
In this podcast I talk about my personal experience with these processes as I was starting my practice.
AND, of course figuring out how to pay for starting up my practice was a big deal for me and is for most massage therapists - especially the loan or debt aspect it.
While paying off a total of $67K in debt sucked, having my full massage practice made it possible. I do NOT recommend doing the credit card debt thing the way I did it (as I talk about in the video). However, debt usually plays a part in every business, massage practice or not, so it’s good to have an idea of how it can work for you rather than sink you.
