Setting Boundaries and Avoiding Burnout
Massage therapists are passionate about their careers, but this can sometimes lead to working too much and not taking enough time for self-care. This can lead to burnout and feeling like we don't have a life outside of work. So in this episode, we are discussing: Using your Enough number (see last week’s episode!) to set goals How growth for the sake of growth isn’t worth your time (and will only lead to burnout) Setting boundaries as a business owner (to avoid, you guessed it, burnout) How you should think of yourself as more than just your job title The importance of working to live (having your career support your life, not run it!) This is the second episode in my short series on How to Stay a Massage Therapist for the Long Haul. Show notes are now available for all episodes at happylittlebiz.com/show-notes/

Massage and Science - What's the Proof?
One of the things massage therapists on the whole are sensitive about are questions about the efficacy of their treatments.

So in today’s episode, we’re talking about the science behind massage therapy - or the lack of it. But we’re also talking about why it doesn’t necessarily matter, at least in terms of running your business!
