I'm still trying to figure out how I want to develop myself as an independent practitioner. It's an exiting and scary time in my life. I feel like I'm going through another right of passage into adulthood. This is a big one for me. You don't need a license to have a child, and getting the ones for marriage and driving are fairly easy. It takes a lot of work and dedication to become a successful business owner. Even if is it a small business. I'm still trying to find my niche. There are so many areas of massage that I would like to explore, I don't know what I want to specialize in yet. Ah well, it's great to have options.
