How do other studio owners do it all?
Summer is in full swing here and I’m celebrating the 4th of July holiday at the beach in California instead of Minnesota this year. Bring on the sand in my toes, sun on my face and ocean breezes!
It is hard to believe 2012 is half way over and before too long kids will be back at school and holiday festivities will be here.
If this year has slipped by and you haven’t made much progress with your pilates biz remember there is always time to turn over a new leaf. Just make the decision to do things differently – right now – and you’ll begin to get different results!
Are you wondering what you need to do differently?
Not sure where to begin or how you’ll get it all done (keep reading for inspiration)?
Then you need to get on the early notification list for my online training program, Profit With Pilates, here. This program literally details exactly what pilates instructors and studio owners need to be focused on to get more clients, make more sales and ultimately have more freedom in their life to do what they love.
When you sign up for the list, you’ll be sure to hear about all the free online training I’ll be offering in addition to sneak peeks in to the Profit With Pilates System. . . no strings attached.
Earlier this week I had the opportunity to interview studio owner, Jill Hinson, of Monroe, North Carolina. She has 3 kids and opened up a studio 9 months ago in a town where very few knew what pilates was or how to pronounce it.
I was able to record the interview with Jill and I think you’ll not only enjoy it but be inspired by Jill and her team.
Here are 5 things you’ll learn from this interview with Jill: (go straight to interview here)
- Have a business plan, but realize it will and should change.
- Be willing to take risks (Jill took lots of calculated risks and they paid off!)
- How much hard work is really required?
- How to schedule your time including outside of the studio
- Do you do it all alone? (learn about the team Jill created for maximum success)
Remember, even if you don’t have your own pilates studio this information applies to you! As an independent pilates instructor, you are likely responsible for wearing many hats in addition to being a teacher.
Let me know your thoughts in the comment section and what your experience has been like opening a studio so we can all learn from each other.
Thank you for being part of The Pilates Biz Community!
All the best,
PS – My popular online training program, Profit With Pilates, is going to be re-released again soon but you have to be on this list for exclusive training and very special offer.

"I have been a member of Profit with Pilates for only 2 or 3 months, and feel I have already gotten my money’s worth and more!The last 3 months (since joining Profit With Pilates) have been my most profitable months ever… I have almost doubled my usual sales. I feel like I can breathe again. It is invaluable to have Gina’s coaching and the forum to communicate with. Being a part of this group has changed my mindset. It has given me new ideas, and given me the motivation to act on ideas I have had. I can’t thank you enough. Joining The Pilates Biz and Profit With Pilates has been a turning point for my business.""

"I was in search of taking my business to the next level but I wasn’t exactly sure how that was going to look. But after The Pilates Biz I felt that my confidence was restored along with a very clear guideline of what to do next to boost my business. It was the “A-AH moment” that I needed! Thank you!" - Kate, pilates instructor
"I recommend The Pilates Biz to other pilates professionals because it changes lives! I had no real idea how thorough and complete this experience was going to be until I joined! Before Gina & The Pilates Biz, my pilates business was feeling a bit stale and stagnant. I believe this program will help every business owner or instructor realize their true potential, thank you!" - Lynne, pilates studio owner
"Learning from Gina has made all the difference to me in being a good instructor who could pay the bills to becoming a great instructor who had a successful and fulfilling career! She has been both a mentor and friend." - Valerie, pilates instructor
