In the last couple of years, my business has really picked up and I am averaging 15-20 clients a week at my studio. At lot of it is through referral and many of them are weekly and bi-weekly clients. In my business 15-20 hrs is full time work, not counting the cleaning, admin, and laundry that I have to do!
I have a therapist who is pretty good and seems like a good partner to get into business with. I priced out an office in town for $350/month with utilities included. In another few months, I will have to start turning down clients since it is getting so big for me to handle....what a dilemma!
I do so well because I am able to give everyone the time they need rather than the churn and burn style of Massage Envy or Hand and Stone. I don't want to lose that if I bring in other therapists and become bigger. I know I would be a demanding boss, because I love what I do, take a lot of classes, and am constantly working on becoming better and providing a certain level of professionalism and care for my clients. I would expect them to be the same way....and not a lot of therapists have that work ethic.
So...what are your thoughts?
