While not every teacher dreams of owning their own studio, it is helpful as a teacher to understand all that is involved in running such a business. In this training module participants will learn the basics needed for creating a business plan.
- Options for what type of legal entity to form
- Creating a budget
- Naming your business
- Selecting real estate
- Hiring teachers
- Scheduling classes
- Marketing your business
- And everything in between
Students will identify goals for their future business, real or imagined, and walk away with a business plan outline and draft budget. A laptop computer or tablet with Word and spreadsheet software such as Numbers or Excel is extremely recommended because participants will be doing hands-on budget and plan development. This training is only open to students currently enrolled in Green Lotus's 200-Hour and 300-Hour Teacher Training programs, or under a Green Lotus License Agreement.
