Paralegal Quits Job to Buy Massage Clinic

Paralegal Quits Job to Buy Massage Clinic

Those all too rare occasions to splurge on a massage are my favorite way to relieve stress and forget about all things law-related for an hour.

South Carolina resident Crystal Hodge, a veteran paralegal, enjoyed the massage experience she had last year at a Massage Envy clinic so much that she quit her job and bought her own franchise.

At 45, Crystal Hodge realized she had accomplished about all she could in her 20-year career as a paralegal.

That was about a year ago while she was living in Charlotte. She figured out what she would do next after she had booked three appointments at a Massage Envy clinic in Greenville during a day of shopping with her mother and a friend.

Hodge enjoyed her first experience at the national chain of massage clinics so much she soon decided to become a franchisee herself.

“When I walked out, I just said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ “

I confess I’ve got a little case of massage envy myself, not helped by the fact that her new business is located close to a Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

Ah, this paralegal’s idea of paradise is definitely a deep tissue massage followed by a Five Guys cheeseburger.

Congratulations to Hodge and her business partner on the launch of their new business. Cheeseburgers and massages sound like a recipe for success to me.
