Ed’s Answer

I'm not a massage therapist so I can't comment on that, but as an employee of a +20K people company and founder of my own business with +10 employees, my daily routine and goals define a lot of the tasks I have to do (not the other way around).

My goals
- Ensure my team is up to date and aware of what's happening in the business
- Remove any blockers from my team to progress on their goals
- Strategize and influence stakeholders to get work done, approvals and so on

Tasks
- Run meetings, set team goals, approve/comment on important projects, sync with stakeholders, update and check tracking tools, etc.

Hope this helps!

Hi, Thorne

If you are asking what the daily tasks are for a massage therapist, it depends.

Massage therapists work in an array of settings, such as spas, clinics, physicians’ offices, hotels, and fitness centers. Some massage therapists also travel to clients’ homes or offices to give a massage. It depends if you work for a company (and if you show up at a designated office or are assigned to various locations) or if you set up a business for yourself.

If working for a company your daily work tasks for preparing therapy rooms, cleaning the room at the end of the session, recordkeeping, and sales would be structured based on the type of business setting. A doctor's office/clinic would be the most structured due to federal health confidentiality laws, then spas/fitness centers, then hotels. Setting up a company for yourself would mean tasks that the company covers (advertising, insurance, billing, customer service, rent, equipment, etc.) would all fall to you.

A suggestion is to start working for a company or agency to learn the role of a massage therapist and start picking up the skills needed as an entrepreneur in case you decide to branch out on your own.

Fortune favors the bold!
