THE RADICAL MASSAGE THERAPIST
How To Give Yourself Vacation Pay As A Self-Employed Massage Therapist
Emlie McKay is an RMT and owner of TheRMTpreneur.
As a registered massage therapist and clinic owner I have valued coaching calls with Emilie to help guide me with big and small decisions alike. I appreciate that she knows our profession as a fellow RMT and her coaching experience brings clarity as an outsider to the situation.
This is a recording of a coaching call between myself (Krista Dicks, RMT) and Emilie McKay, RMT (@Thermtpreneur). I was getting ready to leave on holiday and I have been purposely saving to give myself time off to alleviate my financial stress while on holiday. Talking to Emilie gave me clarity and helped answer my questions.
You are not alone in navigating a successful massage practice while being self-employed. We often over complicate or overwork ourselves when it comes to taking time off and we may even daydream about what it's like to have paid vacation days if we worked with the government or a larger company.
I hope this episode answers your questions and encourages you to to write your own cheque while you are enjoying some much needed rest and recovery as a healthcare provider.
Emilie and I discuss:
- How much do you really need to set aside for 1, 2 or 3 weeks off?
- Do you calculate on gross or net income?
- Best options for savings accounts to maximize growth
- Why time is on your side
- Why trying to make up the hours will lead to burnout
My mission? To help other massage therapists own their awesome and do what they love every darn day! Even if that love is not massage therapy.
