Financial planning can be a really tricky topic for anyone who is self-employed, including massage therapists.
We want to have a good life, both now and in the future, but there are so many things to consider. There is a business to build, clients to see, and of course, a personal life to live! No one wants to be working all the time, even if there are times we need to.
But just like we plan for things like graduation or a milestone birthday, we also need to plan for other big life changes like buying a house and retirement.
So for this episode, I am sharing my perspective as a fellow business owner and former massage therapist. I know how tricky it can be when you’re a solo business owner!
In this episode we are discussing:
- Some thoughts on money mindsets and not getting stuck in a ‘sacrifice’ mode
- The importance of separating personal and business goals (yes, even when it comes to money!)
- Saving for retirement as a self-employed person
- Books you may find helpful (also linked below!)
