I am soon going to be starting yet another business venture....I met a woman at the dog park near my house and she is starting a Doggie Day Care company here in town and I mentioned that I was a massage therapist, which led her to offer me a job doing pet massage! I'm excited to be doing it and think I'll have a lot of fun with it, and here's the deal. We're going to charge $1/minute for the pets, 50/50 split, but I'm also going to be offering chair massage for the people (kind of a pamper yourself and your pet at the same time type of thing) and that will also be $1/minute, 50/50 split, but the owner mentioned early on that she would like to offer full body massages for the people. I told her that I'm not interested in doing that right now (first of all, it will be in the doggie day care place, seperate room from the dogs though) and I don't know how relaxing it would be and I'm there to help the dogs, I don't want it to be just about the people, but here's my question. If a client asks me if I do house calls (which I primarily do) and they want me to come to their home to give them a full body massage, technically, since I got the client from the day care place, is the owner entitled to anything that I make from that? I know that my client is my client, but I wouldn't have gotten a client had it not been for her, and I would like to be able to thank her somehow for it, but I'm not sure how. This hasn't happened yet, but I do think that after they get a chair massage, they will ask about a full body massage and I don't want it to look like I don't want to do full body massage at the dog place just so I'll keep all the money, does any of that make sense?
