Y’all, let’s do a quick exercise. Raise your hand if…

  • Thinking about your business finances gives you the jitters
  • You find yourself procrastinating tasks that have anything to do with your accounts
  • You want to hire a new employee, invest more in your memberships, and get specialized equipment, but you’ve been sitting on those big money decisions for so long that you haven’t been able to take a step in the right direction

If any of these speak to you, you’re probably terrified of your business’ numbers and will do anything to avoid “that side” of running a studio. And believe me: I’ve been in your shoes, and I know exactly how terrifying that feeling is.
