Your ultimate vision for the yoga business
Some businesses use sophisticated tools and spreadsheets, I personally tend to sit down with a sheet of paper and a pen to scribble some notes for the year ahead. I tend to do it around December time, just after Christmas but before New Year. It always feels a good time to review, reflect and set new challenges and evolutionary visions.
In your yoga business, the ultimate goal you have to pursue is to continue evolving in the ever-growing yoga industry packed with new entrants and competition. In short, you want to yogically outperform at every turn other yoga studios running classes down the road from yours.
The key to achieving your yoga visions in business is in your ability, as a yoga teacher/studio owner to master the art of marketing your classes, pricing, customer service etc … but, most importantly in your ability to create an effective strategy that will help you grow business, increase sales, improve productivity.
Having a clear vision is important to see where you are heading – marketing will help you drive towards your vision.
Here are some important questions you can ask yourself about your yoga business for the New Year.
Reviewing old year and the performance will help you device a clearer strategy to achieve your most important business visions and goals in the New Year. So go ahead, grab a paper and a pen, find a quiet place and start scribbling some notes.
