In this week’s episode of Extra Paycheck Podcast I am joined by Chantelle Duffield, an entrepreneur and the founder of Studio Expansion.
Chantelle worked as a music teacher while running a performing arts camp for kids as a side business. Within few short years this successful business grew to 6 locations, 35 teachers and over 1,000 children. Chantelle Duffield certainly figured out how to run a successful performing arts studio.
When Chantelle got an opportunity to move overseas she decided to sell her business. However, she kept getting asked for advice from other studio owners (dance, singing, acting studios, etc). This is when Chantelle understood there was a huge demand for her expertise and she decided to start helping these people professionally, this is how Studio Expansion was born about 6 years ago.
In this episode Chantelle explains how she succeeds in her business and how she now uses internet to help performing arts studios to grow a successful business with loyal clients. A lot of great details are revealed in this episode so scroll up and press that PLAY button!
