I’m Lise Kuecker, a long time Studio Owner turned founder here at Studio Grow. Just a few years ago, I was building my studios the hard way cause I didn’t have the team, the budget, or most importantly the time. If you speed up to today, I sold my wildly profitable studios in the mid-7 figures while serving my community in ways I could have only dreamed. Now, I work with thousands of boutique fitness studio owners in over 40 countries and am so blessed to share some of the best tested strategies for our industry every single week. I created this podcast so you’d always have clear, actionable processes, tried and tested Facebook advice and some good ole fashioned inspiration so that you can take simple actionable steps to grow your studio and turn it into a powerhouse empire, just like I did. If you’re a studio owner who's ready to impact your community and see major growth in the process, or you’re prepping to become one, then you are in the right place. So let’s kick this off, shall we?

    611: Mindset Matters - Building Boundaries without Guilt

    611: Mindset Matters - Building Boundaries without Guilt

    Boundaries can get a bad rap.
     
    Like they’re selfish. Or prohibitive.
     
    But really, they're freeing. 
     
    And fundamental. 
     
    In my latest podcast episode, Mindset Matters: Building Boundaries Without Guilt, Coach Heather walks us through why boundaries matter, how to set them and how to hold them.
     
    In Episode 611, you’ll get 10 tips on establishing and enforcing boundaries. They’re your practical playbook.

    More of what we’ll explore: 
    Classification Counts: Boundaries come in different types? Discover how healthy boundaries trump rigid and porous ones. 
    Self-care Strategy: Manage stress, reduce overwhelm, seek balance and avoid burnout by outlining your limits. 
    Assumptions Banished: Set specific expectations and improve communication with your team.
    Resistance Ready: Boundaries often mean change. Change is hard. Expect some pushback.
    Guilt Begone: You’re not doing anything wrong, so don’t apologize. Boundaries aren’t about controlling others.

    A lack of boundaries means a lack of structure and order. Get empowered to draw some lines and set standards for you and your business in Episode 611.

    The ingredients you’ll need: 
    Compelling Goal: Identify why you’re hosting the event and what you want out of it. Is it to build community among members, drive new traffic or score some winbacks? Basic Budget: Not trying to be a buzzkill, but money matters. Run the numbers and figure out what you can spend. Then stick to it! Guest List: Your event goal and budget dictate who gets invited (and how many). Existing members, guests, leads, former members or trials?   Engaging Experience: Will you host a special session? Or share a sampler class? A workshop for existing members? Or a group hike?  Staff Stints: Assign team members specific tasks to help plan and run the event. Make sure they’re ready to answer questions, handle signups and mingle.   Master Plan: Think through and write down everything that needs to happen before, during and after the event. Create a detailed checklist. And then adjust the playbook as necessary along the way. The payback of a plan and process like this? You can use it for every future event. Plug and play, people!

Podcast has really dropped in quality

I used to love this podcast. Now it’s a lot of repeat content and “interviews” that sound like people reading from scripts. Super disappointing these days
