Ready to stop surviving and start thriving?

Y’all, having business insurance is something most studio owners think of as a protective measure in case something catastrophic happens. 

But that’s where we need to change our mindset. 

Because realistically speaking, what insurance really does is help you protect the day-to-day operational peace of your business, so that you’re never in a place where you need to pause or shut down, even if you’re faced with an unexpected situation. 

And as a studio owner, it’s important to educate yourself about your insurance needs at so you don’t have to face any difficult scenarios when it comes to your lease, your employees, or your own business equipment.

Don’t know where to begin? You’re in the right place!

In this episode, Studio Grow’s very own Dan Kuecker is joined by Mary Duggan Hoeprich, founder of Gild, a boutique insurance agency that specifically caters to the fitness industry, and helps studio owners like you fulfil their insurance needs. And they’re going to get into the nitty-gritty of insurance basics: what kind of insurance coverages you should be looking at, how to get started as a business owner, and more!

  • A few basic things you can do right now to protect yourself using insurance
