Are there any cons to being a PT? if so what are they? it looks like a fun and reward

rewarding job and it isn't physically strenuous or stressful. - get to chat to people all day - watch people make amazing progress with their bodies - be your own boss I'm thinking of a career change and this seems like the perfect thing. Idk why it never occurred to me before.
