Sunday Confessions 06

The United States of Becky

I confess:  I'm nervous to take new male massage therapy clients, especially when they call and have to have an appointment rightthisveryminute.  It's been a long time since I've had a creepy client (but that's because I was at the same reputable place for 5 years).  I'd almost rather not take any new male clients at all than risk seeing even one table-humper.  And yes, it's as awful and creepy as that sounds.

I confess:  I'm a little let down by all my former regular clients.  When I decided to take the plunge and "go rogue" to open my own place, I told all of my regulars and they all encouraged me and made it seem like they were going to follow me to my new place of business, but now it's 8 months later and all I'm hearing are crickets.  Part of what made me strike out on my own is the impression I got from most of them that I would continue to have them as clients, and, therefore, have a steady stream of income.

I confess:  I'm an amazing massage therapist, but I have no idea how to get new clients.  I've tried a few things but they don't seem to be working.  If I continue without seeing new clients (and retaining them as regulars) my business is going to fail.  I love being a massage therapist, but the thought of having to find a place to work and essentially being the low man on the totem pole and having a shit schedule not only scares me, but makes me really angry.
