Best of Ready.Aim.Empire: Your value in your business

READY AIM EMPIRE : Best of Ready.Aim.Empire: Your value in your business

Being a studio owner means asking yourself the tough questions – ‘am I overpaying my staff? And can those expenses be renegotiated?’

When I spoke my colleagues about this, the response I got was universal and worrying:

‘My instructors, trainers, teachers, and expenses hold more value than I do to the studio and how I pay them and myself will reflect that.’

Y’all, once again, I totally get it.

In fact, when I first started expanding my team, I paid my staff an inflated salary.

I just wanted to be seen as a good boss.

Until the year-end rolled around and I was barely making money myself.

That’s when I realized one thing:

Your studio is your rodeo.

If you don’t value yourself financially, you sure ain’t valuing your business or your team.

Which is why I wanted to bring this episode back for a ‘Best Of’ run!

Join me in today’s throwback episode as I tackle this belief headfirst and share my 30/30/30 profit roll, how to value yourself in your business, and what ‘constantly being in hiring mode’ means!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The real reasons why you aren’t paying yourself
  • Whether or not you are paying your instructors an above-average rate
  • A breakdown of my 30/30/30 profit roll 
  • How to start evaluating your instructors based on the client experience 
  • Ways to renegotiate with open financials 
  • The misconstrued belief of your worth 

With grit and gratitude,

Lisé

Now, I love hitting the account books at the end of the year, going through our numbers, collecting and analyzing data, and planning for the future.  But, I’ve also struggled with the accounting side of my business for years.  In fact, a running joke in my family is that if I was handling Studio Grow’s […]

How Would I Start All Over Again? (Part 4)

Y’all, it’s been a long February.  But, with every passing week (and every relative of mine that’s gotten a shot), I get more and more cautiously optimistic about the state of the world around us.  And it’s the same for our businesses too.  While this is a tough time for everyone in boutique fitness, these […]

How would I start all over again? (Part 3)

Y’all, when I spoke to my team about this episode via our weekly Zoom huddle, they just looked at me and said:  Lise, you cannot say that on the podcast However, despite any controversy, I truly believe in what I’m going to be sharing this episode.  So, keeping with the theme of the past two […]

How would I start all over again? (Part 2)

Last year, I spent a month with my parents in Louisiana.  Now, we’re a family from the deep south and we’re rich in conversation, hypothesis, and playing a more grown-up version of make believe.  So, the question ‘how would I start all over again’ has been tossed around constantly in our living rooms during game […]
