If I had advice for a brand newfranchisee, I’d emphasize the importance of structuring your time wisely. Owning a new business can be overwhelming (especially if you are a brand new mompreneur) and so it’s always important to pace yourself with goals that are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely). Rome wasn’t built in a day… so build your business wisely… not overnight. Even now, I am very strategic with when and where I open new locations... while I’m very proud to have 13 different locations offering Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Fit4Baby, Body Back and Run Club at almost every single one of those, I always give myself certain benchmarks that I need to meet before expanding. Advice for a seasoned Franchisee? Well, 3 years in I know it is incredibly easy to feel burnt out, overwhelmed, and perhaps even lose momentum and drive with our daily work. This is when I think it’s more important than ever to connect with other franchisees, challenge one another in brainstorming sessions and most importantly keep your inner fire lit with your continuing education. And remember... it’s okay to give yourself some breaks!!!! Find quality team members who can help alleviate your daily load so you can focus in on new and innovative ways to grow your business. If you work to keep your ideas fresh, the work you do will never become boring!
