The Success Blueprint for the Dance Studio Owner
By Deborah Searle.
If there’s ever been a book that will take you to the next level when running your dance studio, It’s Your Turn! The Success Blueprint for the Dance Studio Owner is it.
In It’s Your Turn the dynamic team of Steve Sirico, Angela D’Valda Sirico and Robert Landau take you on a journey of self-discovery to explore how you can achieve success both in your business and personal life. Steve and Angela are well established authorities when it comes to all things that have to do with owning and operating a dance studio. Their DanceTeacherWeb.com membership website and yearly dance teacher conference attract hundreds within the dance industry.
“After twenty one years, we wanted to share our insight, philosophies and methods that have helped us in running a successful dance studio,” said Steve Sirico. “We felt there was a need for a book that not only provided practical tips but also much needed encouragement and inspiration for the busy studio owner. We want studio owners to feel that they are not alone but rather part of a large and successful dance teacher community,” followed Angela D’Valda Sirico.
Some of the many topics covered within the book’s pages are: finding the motivation and balance you need to get through your day, how to deal with difficult staff and customers, how to best market your studio, and how to be organized, making every task a success.
“Speaking from personal experience, I know how important and empowering it is to have answers to many of the questions we face on a daily basis. We designed the book so that readers would have ideas from three different people, so that they can see that there isn’t always just one way to resolve issues or to move forward and be successful,” explained Angela.
And although not a studio owner himself, Robert Landu provides key insights into successful business management in It’s Your Turn. Robert is an international motivational speaker and positive results expert that has worked with countless businesses to successfully take their operations to the next level.
“It’s one thing to have a picture of how one wants things to run, but it’s another bringing that picture to life”, says Robert. “We realized that there really wasn’t a book out there that addressed all aspects of what it is to operate a studio, particularly in these challenging times. The book is a perfect balance of practical and motivational advice. It’s a quick but informative read and the facts are laid out in an easy-to-digest manner.”
As studio owners, your time is already stretched, but why not spend a little time learning how to best run your studio? It could save you a lot of time and heartache in the long run, and bring you much joy in the process.
“I believe the number one mistake that studio owners make is not fully realizing that THEY are the business and that everything they do or don’t do has a direct influence on staff, faculty, parents and students. It is just then a matter of using that influence in a positive and informed way”, shares Angela.
And helpful, inspiring information is where it’s at. “Dance studio owners and teachers so often feel isolated. It’s Your Turn will not only give practical information that they constantly need, but also the motivation to expect more from their lives both in business and on the personal side”, adds Angela. “This book will help the studio owner in all areas of running the business, finding the fine balance of running a business while maintaining artistic integrity”, explains Steve. “It’s a much needed tool kit to help the studio owner achieve their ultimate success.”
