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
