After you’ve taught for a while, you may feel an entrepreneurial spark igniting inside you, and the prospect of owning your own facility may seem very attractive. Before committing to this path, I can provide you with the following steps:
* Develop a business plan with help from a certified professional.
* Decide whether you will be the only Pilates instructor or
whether you will hire others.
Think about where your real interests lie. Do you want to manage a business, or do you want to teach and train clients?
