Podcast - Why I Stay Away From Parent Helpers

Parent Helpers: Why I Stay Away

Hi everyone and thank you SO MUCH for checking out this episode of the Dance Studio Excellence Podcast!

This podcast (I hope!) will provide dance studio owners worldwide value and insights into how to create, grow and run a successful dance or performance studio.

In this episode, I’m going to talk about something many dance studio owners consider an “asset”. But it’s an “asset” that can come with a series of hidden costs down the line.

I’m talking about parent helpers!

You know the ones; cheap (or usually free), accessible, keen from the get go. BUT they can often be risky, becoming far more trouble than they are worth.

While parent helpers can appear as a valuable resource for any growing studio, I’m going to recommend some different strategies I’ve used in the past and still currently use so I don’t have to rely on parent helpers – EVER!

So settle in, listen closely and get ready to be one step closer to kissing parent helpers goodbye!

There will be links to the resources or people mentioned in the show notes below. If you’re keen to check us out on social media or join our Facebook Group, the links will be down there too.

Thank you SO much once again for joining me on this journey! I have a feeling we’re going to have a lot of good times ahead!
