      Dear Charlene,
      Although I cannot share any advantages to being in business for myself
      because I am still in school getting my masters in PT, I appreciate
      reading your messages and learning from your experiences. Also as a
      female in her mid-twenties, I admire your ability to advance your
      career as a PT and balance a family. You are a good role model for
      myself and many of my classmates. Thank you for encouraging other PTs
      to comment on these issues that you address. I enjoy learning from
      insightful comments made by experienced PTs.
      Thanks for sharing,
      Megan
