I guess this all depends on how much you are paid. Would you make more being in your own place, but paying all the expenses? Would you then be able to afford paid time off and other benefits. This is when you get out a calculator and do some research. I am a suite renter so I pay a lease to the building I am in. I pay for everything. I do make a decent wage, but I do not have benefits like retirement or paid leave. It is pretty unheard of in this industry unless you work in a franchise salon at minimum wage. Look up the median income of a stylist in your state. Do you make more than this where you are at? Is there room for growth? Wage or commission negotiation? If it is a dead end then I would consider looking into other options, but definitely do your research. ♡
