People get into franchising to go into business for themselves, not by themselves.
You know the affirmation: Do what you love, and the money will follow. Your dream may be to share your love for practicing and teaching yoga and fitness with a large and enthusiastic group of students, so owning a studio seems like the perfect way to bring that affirmation to life. But loving to teach yoga and fitness, and loving to create and run a profitable business is not quite the same. If you already own a fitness business, you know what we’re saying. You’ve been working hard at it for a number of years, and you’ve got a core of loyal, enthusiastic students who love you and your product. You are definitely making a living, but you might still be struggling to find time for what you loved to do in the first place: teach and practice. The To-Do list to keep your business growing and improving never gets shorter. And because fitness is such a hot growing industry, you know it is only a matter of time before a second, then a third, fitness studio opens up in your neighborhood.
Your love of fitness has been growing since your first class. It's become the most important item in your schedule - not to be missed. You spend your free time dreaming of creating a life with fitness at the center. Sound familiar? You are not alone. The challenge is how you make that dream a reality. Where do you start? How long will it take you to build it and what will happen if you make a mistake along the way? Will you be able to run your own yoga business and still have a life? You know there are no foolproof guarantees in business, but you want to know if the risk will be worth the rewards. Opening a Sunstone franchise may be the way.
