1 Decision that changed my studio [and how I sold it]

If you’ve heard my story before, you know that I started my dance studio at 16 with a friend and really, really struggled the first 18 months. None of us had run a business and all we knew was how to teach dance.

When it came to running a “real” business, we had a lot to learn!  For the first year or so we made every mistake I thought possible… ordering wrong sized costumes, forgetting to invoice people and chase money, not being organized when it came to telling parents about class changes or extra rehearsals.  It was really a hot mess!  But, without those mistakes we would not have learned and we wouldn’t have sought out a mentor to help us.

In This Podcast

We are going to dive in and talk about mentors.

It’s my pleasure to tell you all about our experience once we got on board someone who had created and sold a studio and asked for some advice and guidance, and the one thing that stuck more than anything was the fact that we had ZERO systems in place!

Today I’m sharing this with you so you can avoid wasting more valuable time on the lower-value components of your business, and focus on your core systems.

  1. Goals & Execution
  2. Finances
  3. People
  4. Promotion
  5. Programs

Each of these main areas in your studio have a bunch of systems within them so that anyone can be handed a process and follow through on a task. The greatest thing is this: once you have these systems in place, you can start hiring staff to help build the studio of your dreams right from the beginning.
