New ABA business owners often face several struggles while establishing their companies. Don’t worry - these growing pains are common, and there are plenty of helpful resources to assist you in this new journey. Keep reading to check out three common challenges and solutions for ABA practitioners interested in becoming business owners.

All of these stressors, along with a dedication and love for ABA, can make it difficult to leave work at work and create a healthy work-life balance for yourself. Combat this by taking the time to focus on your own mental health with healthy habits like meditation, exercise, sleep, healthy eating and remembering to leave work behind when you head home.
