Are You Making These Mistakes in Your Massage or Bodywork Business?
We've covered a TON of ground this month, and today we'll wrap up by looking at 3 common mistakes that you might be making in the way you approach your massage or bodywork business.
First of all, it's no wonder that bodywork practitioners are making business mistakes. I mean, no one gets into this industry to be a business guru -- we get into it because we love to help people.
But if you don't pay attention to your business, you can get into a place of fear and worry that doesn't let you show up 100% for your clients. They don't get the results they're looking for, and you begin doubting yourself and your abilities.
And the worst part is, if you're struggling with any of these, your clients are already thinking "I'm not really getting what I need here," because they're not able to get through whatever they need to get through with you.
Soooo not good.
You can begin to get a handle on your business by asking yourself if you're making these 3 common mistakes in your business:
1. Not specializing in the work you truly LOVE to do (offering too many modalities is a race-to-the-bottom for you and your business).
If you find yourself with a sprawling Menu of Services, chances are that you're struggling to create a niche and be known as a specialist in your modality.
You need to "niche down," which means to really focus in on one modality that lights up your heart so much that you could do it all day long, all day strong. THAT's a major piece in streamlining your practice so that it works for you.
2. Not having the time to work on the business side of your practice (if you don't take care of your business, it won't take care of you).
Believe me, I get it. How in the heck are you supposed to work on your business when you can barely find the time to get something to eat between clients?
There are a few simple tweaks you can make in your calendar that will give you the time you need to focus on your practice so that you can take it to the next level. And it all starts with a mindset shift.
3. Not showing up as a CONFIDENT PRO (being too hesitant in any business-related discussions).
You've got to be both the PRO and CEO in your practice -- a professional therapist AND a rock star entrepreneur -- to really make an impact and help more people.
As you take steps to uplevel your business and become a true professional, you'll enhance your confidence so that you can be truly present for your clients... and their results from your work together will soar.
And now you have a unique opportunity to work all three of these areas, with my support and feedback!
I'm over-the-moon excited to share with you a 100% free program I've created called Step Up and Fill Your Practice! It's a 7-Day Challenge for massage and bodyworkers who are ready to really make things happen in their businesses.
Each day I'll guide you through the exact steps you need to take to become the PRO that you know you can be. These are the things I got laser-focused on in my own practice that now allow me to work three days each week, and spend the other four at the beach. And still make six figures doing it.
My favorite thing about mentoring and coaching big-hearted therapists like you? You do Ah-MAZ-ing work, and our world deeply needs your wisdom, skills, and love.
Now more than ever.
So, it's crucial that you step up and do what it takes to create a thriving and sustainable business.
And now you can lean into my experience for help and support! Join me September 10-16, 2018 for a free 7-day Challenge -- give me less than 30 minutes each day, and I'll help you step up and GO PRO so you can be successful in your business.
