This could just be a bit of a mid-life crisis, who knows... I really don't enjoy my job, I find it very tedious and dull and there's very little opportunity for me to do anything else within my company. My company is also not that stable and the long-term prospects are not looking too brilliant.
On the plus side, it's very good pay and very flexible. As I'm a single parent this is obviously very important to me.
A couple of my friends at work have left recently and another is re-training for a complete career change which has got me thinking...
I've been looking online at courses and degrees and something along the lines of retraining as a physio appeals to me. Problem is I can't afford to stop work to do a three-year degree full time. Then I saw the courses for Sports Massage Therapists which can be done part-time.
I'm now pondering whether I could do one of these courses part time, start a mobile practice part-time to build up a client base and then assuming I enjoy it, leave work and set up full time.
So, now over to the wise people of RW, anyone here a Sports Massage Therapist who could give me the inside knowledge on working hours, best training providers, ongoing costs etc? Is it a very competitive area? Would I be earning a decent living if I were full-time?
Any advice on alternatives also welcome.
