Yesterday I talked about how I made the decision to leave my well paying, secure job to open my own business.  Ultimately, despite having a great job with good co-workers and amazing clients, I wasn’t happy.  It was no one’s fault but my own.  But I literally was dying inside a slow and miserable death – and it was manifesting itself in my health, my friendships, and my marriage.

Once I decided I was miserable enough to actually make a change, I knew I had to really investigate what I was going to do.  I couldn’t leave a successful career on a whim. I needed to feel confident that I was doing the right thing.  So, I did what I do best – I started to research.  I wanted to know some of my responsibilities.  I wanted to know what opening a business would cost.  And I did what I do best, I started to spreadsheet EVERYTHING.

Ultimately in my almost five years owning a barre studio, I have learned a lot. I have made a lot of mistakes.  I often tell potential studio owners about one big mistake that I made that cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars the first time I opened.   I also tell about the almost $50 – $75k in mistakes I made in just my first year, that would have been the difference between being a start up, and being a super successful business in just a few months!  Since opening two studios of my own, and consulting on eight others, my entire mission is to empower women to do something they love and avoid the big, costly mistakes that were made by those before them!

Studio in a Box is meant to do that for the woman who wants to open a fitness studio – whether it be a barre studio, a pilates studio, or any other type of women’s fitness.  It is designed to give you the tools to open your own studio WITHOUT the fees and rules of a barre franchise or a pilates franchise – but also without the mistakes that could cost you HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars of your hard earned money!!!!  You do NOT have to pay a franchise $45,000 to open.  You just need the tools and systems that a franchise would provide!  You really want to run your own business any way!

Here I am five years in, and I would never go back to my old job!  I work hard – don’t get me wrong!  But I spend time with people I love every single day!  I have more flexibility than I ever had in my old job – despite five weeks of vacation time!  Now, if it is 85 and sunny – Mike and I play hooky for the afternoon and do something fun together.  Or I meet the girls at the pool and order umbrella drinks and read a great book (my FAVORITE way to unwind)!
