But I began to realize that running a business is a creative process, too I was determined that my lack of business skills wouldn’t let me down, so I taught myself the basics, kept things simple and, when things went wrong, I learned from my mistakes Running the clinic was my dream I have three treatment rooms and I treat my patients in one of them, while the other two are rented to other therapists There’s also a shop where I sell natural healthcare products and natural beauty products that I’ve made These days I work six days a week – three days spent treating people and the other three in the shop doing the accounts and making products I’ve learned you have to accept the negative things in life and use them to move on You can’t hide from them It’s hard when things go wrong, but it does help to clear out all the things that don’t matter and lets you focus on what does But more than anything, I’ve realized that it’s worth pushing for what you want, because if you are lucky enough to find work you believe in, it can totally transform you 8.What effect did her brother’s accident have on the writer?
