The Wellness Studio Success Masterplan

Uncategorized Sep 19, 2019
 

You might've already heard our story, but for those of you who are just catching up here’s the cliff notes version...

We met back in 1993 as freshmen year suitemates at The University of North Carolina (Go Heels!), and we used to daydream about owning and operating our own business one day.

Then in 2005 that idea became a reality when we opened Empower Personalized Fitness with literally just the two of us.

Within eight years, we were a seven-figure studio business and we were able to do that without us working with clients (we worked on the business, not in it).

So many people ask us, "How did you do it?".

We did it by following this really simple system that we call the 'Wellness Studio Success Masterplan,' and it's a three-part plan that can help you achieve success in your business.

1. Entrepreneurial Mindset

The first pillar is all about having an entrepreneurial mindset - meaning that you trust that you have the skills and the abilities to do what it takes to get things...

Work Less, Make Money and Enjoy Business Ownership

There we were white-knuckled on the highway trying to make it to daycare before they closed.  Yet another day where our kids were the last to get picked up – sometimes on-time, sometimes late… but most always last.

We’re referring to a time in our entrepreneurial journey when we were so overwhelmed and stressed from our day-to-day responsibilities, we had countless sleepless nights worrying about finances and exhaustion was our middle name.

Wait a second…

Isn’t business ownership supposed to mean…

We make our own hours…

We feel empowered working for ourselves…

We stay motivated and charging forward at all costs….

Unfortunately business ownership is anything but linear, and there’s a good chance that you may be (or recently have been) feeling the same way… stressed, overwhelmed and not sure if you will ever create the successful, profitable business you so desire.

Never fear… you can dig yourself out of...

How Do You Have the Courage to Start Your Own Business?

Uncategorized Sep 10, 2019
 

Fear, doubt, uncertainty are all very natural and very real emotions when it comes to opening your own business…especially given the fact that it's so risky and so many small businesses fail.

In fact, a recent survey by Wakefield Research found that one-third of Americans are more afraid of starting their own business than they are jumping out of plane.

Welp… given our very natural and very real fear of jumping out of planes we decided to go the “start our own business route.”

Before we jump into our “how we did it” story it’s important to know a bit of the backstory.

We were both raised in hard-working, entrepreneurial families where we learned a strong work ethic and an attitude of perseverance and persistence.

From a very early age we learned that you got up every single day, you put your heart, soul and passion into your work and the only option was to make it a success.

That strong foundation of having an entrepreneurial mindset and a...

Feeling Stuck? Get a Coach!

Are you feeling stuck in your in your business (or life) and not sure where to turn?
Oftentimes as women business owners, we have a lot of balls in the air and we feel overwhelmed and stressed out, or sometimes it feels like we're operating in a silo and we don't know where to turn.

We are fortunate in that we have been best friends for the last 25 years and business partners for the last 13 years. So, we have had each other’s back for ¼ of a century!
While this internal support system has been great, there have also been times in our business journey when we've had to turn to others for help – and we can honestly say we attribute a lot of our success to the coaches and mentors we have had along the way.

In fact, we’ve been so inspired by our mentors that it inspired us to start coaching other wellness entrepreneurs to create income, impact and freedom in their businesses and their lives. So if you’re wondering how a mentor can help you read...

Conquering Mountains

Today I was running (ok jogging at best) a particularly hilly 5k loop. Let’s just frame the day a little – on one had I was feeling super blessed that we have had several 70+ degree days here in NC in February and I have the flexibility to be outside, commune with nature, etc, etc. But as I got closer to the trail I started to dread the run – all the negative thoughts started creeping in – “oh it’s too hilly,” “actually, my hip flexor hurts, yeah it must be really injured, I shouldn’t run all these hills with a hurt hip flexor, etc. etc.” Being a huge fan of the power of the mind I started switching the narrative in my head – “think about how good you’ll feel when it’s over” “something is better than nothing so just do your best,” etc. etc.

So I take off running with Jessica (who btw is always just a little faster) so her pace pushes me to lactate threshold almost right away (not...
