Throughout each section, you are provided with gems to help you navigate the waters of setting up and running your business. There are handy worksheets to help draw out what you need to consider when embarking upon your venture. These are all included to keep you on track and help you avoid some of the common pitfalls that can stymie a new (or not so new) business owner. Even if you've been teaching for years, this book can help you tie up the loose ends and streamline your processes so you'll have more time to dance and spend less time on administrative aspects (some of which may not be the best use of your time or may be ineffective, but you just can't quite figure out why).
Finally, there is a bonus section about creating a business plan. A business is far more likely to succeed long term with a well thought out plan conceived from the start.
Then only thing that Amity doesn't do for you...is start your business. You can do it! Get this helpful publication and you're on your way!
From the Planning & Budgeting, Marketing & Operating, to Creating a Business Plan information has provided me with the essential tools I need to establish a well rounded studio without having to go through the painstaking time to find out what necessary steps are next. I will be referring to this book often.
This book is well done and a staple for every instructor! I will be purchasing the 'Dance Studio Business Startup Kit: Planning for Sucess'
and 'The Business of Hosting Dance Workshops' next.
Thank you for sharing your extensive research.
