If you are growing a boutique fitness or wellness business, you will inevitably reach a point where things are happening quickly. New clients are coming in, there’s a ton of classes or appointments scheduled each day, you’re managing new employees or contractors… or trying to do it all yourself.
Things are moving too quickly — and you’re reaching a point where you can’t do it all anymore. You have to have a “Come to Jesus” moment with yourself: Is this what you really want? Do you want to create a business that is bigger than you? OR is it time to cut back so you’re not burning out?
First thing you should know: this is not a bad place to be. Technically, it just means that you’ve grown as much as possible in the space provided, so something has to change. You, as a business owner, have a decision to make; you can either grow your business by going all in, or scale back, shut down, and call it quits.
