Hi everyone, wondering if anyone can give me some advice. Iv worked on and off with horses since i was 17. (Im now nearly 27.) Due to money issues (poor pay and prospects with horses) I have worked in an office for the past 18 months. Im at a point where I want to decide on a career once and for all and go to college and get some qualifications. Super sensible me wants to go into accounting (plenty of jobs, good route to progress and well paid so I can compete my own horses.) Horsey me as always dreamt of being a physio. However university isnt an option but you can get into it by qualifying as a equine sports massage therapist first. (Trust me its true, iv spoken to the relevant courses and I would be recognised by insurance company's and vets.) However I would also need to come up with 8k for course fees . I am also sceptical at this point that I would be able to make money at this route even though every physio i know seems to be doing pretty well for themselves,(and they are not apcat physios,just for the record). The uncertainty of being self employed is terrifying to me. It seems a lot of people want to work in this area, so surely its going to get to a point where its impossible to make a good living ?!?! Im so torn. Money is important to me, I dont want to struggle.. But I also dont want to wake up miserable 10 years from now thinking I made all the wrong decisions and didnt follow my dreams. Ahhh what to do. What is a standard salary for a self employed sports massage therapist or a physio?
