Starting a teaching business sounded like a good idea at the time … you’d teach a few classes, people would flow in, and soon you’d be earning good money doing something you love.
And now you’re stuck teaching classes to half empty rooms, struggling to get paid, and wondering why it seems so easy for everybody else.
Working as an instructor is an amazing way to make a difference in the world. There’s nothing like the feeling you get when that one student finally has a breakthrough, you share a skill with someone that they’ll use for the rest of their lives, or someone finally recognises the potential you saw in them all along.
Coming from a background in business and finance, starting a business as a fitness instructor might not have been the most logical choice … but while I was good at my corporate job, I didn’t enjoy it. I felt stifled, like my creativity was dying a bit day by day, and I knew that I wanted to do more with my life.
So together with my husband, I got certified and became a fitness instructor. And to be honest, the business didn’t take off right away. There was such a huge learning curve to creating a successful teaching business that I had never expected, and it took time, patience, and a lot of mistakes before we finally got our feet under us and created the business that supports our family today.
We started teaching friends in a field, then have moved from hiring local community venues, to opening our own Studio in November 2018.
I want every instructor to be able to have their dream business. You know, the one where you do what you love, in a way that you enjoy, with people who can’t get enough of your teaching and a bank account that reflects that.
That’s why I created The Instructor Hub — a comprehensive resource for every instructor to find the information, techniques, strategies, and support that I’ve discovered and developed in my years of teaching.
It’s your go-to for those moments when you’re not quite sure what to do next, you have a question about a specific aspect of your business, or you just need some other instructors to bounce ideas off of.
Most of all, it’s a place for you to finally make that dream of having a business that supports a life you love a reality. I know you can do it, and I can’t wait to show you the way!
"The Instructor Hub has great information and services for instructors wishing to grow their classes."
