Start up guide

There are many studio owner podcast out there, but this is by far my favorite one!! I’m getting realistic advice and I don’t feel like I’m constantly being pressured to buy something or sign up for a service. The advice on studio startups is EXACTLY what I needed!! It’s so hard to find things for people like me who haven’t started yet. Most things are targeted towards people that have an existing studio and are looking to expand, restructure, etc. But this episode was perfect for me and I would love it if there was more content like this!

Podcasts are a big motivation for me and I am very excited to see you here! Time is so valuable and being able to listen to advice, ideas, suggestions and learn while I am carpooling or getting ready in the morning is just what working moms like me need to stay focused and positive! Thank you, Jill and Suzanne!
