Success rarely happens by accident! Instead, success comes from establishing clear objectives, putting forward a plan to achieve them, and finally executing that plan with discipline. Alan Lakein is famously quoted as saying, “failing to plan is a plan to fail.” In this presentation we will delve into the actions studio owners/operators can take to set their business up for success in 2020. We will provide a framework for bringing the future to the present so you can make plans for it now rather than let chaos and entropy dictate your potential success in 2020.

  • The why and how’s of assessing your business’s past performance as a framework for building a plan for the future.
