The CEO of Y7 Reflects on the Value of BOLD

As the founder of a growing business, I quickly realized there is an ever-growing list of questions. 

  • How will I manage locations? 

  • What can I be doing better? 

  • Is anyone else going through these growing pains? 

The fact of the matter is, I am still learning a lot—but one question I can for sure answer is a resounding YES. There are a lot of other people who are going through the inevitable pains of growth.

A community of BOLD personalities

The most powerful thing I have found when growing Y7 is a connection to other studio owners and operators. The community that I have met through Mindbody has been a constantly evolving resource of valuable information and inspiration from a business owner's standpoint.  

I even had the pleasure of speaking twice at the 2018 Mindbody BOLD Conference. The experience was unforgettable, to say the least. The event brings together the largest gathering of Mindbody customers from around the world along with experts in the fitness, wellness, and beauty industries and executive staff.

Getting inspiration from like-minded pros and MINDBODY staff

The breakout sessions within the BOLD Conference gave me the chance to connect with other business owners to talk about things anywhere from how we are running our studios to how we are optimizing our offerings. I learned so much from the Mindbody executive staff on how I can be utilizing the reporting and all of the data within the system to better serve my staff and clients—and who doesn’t want that? 

As someone who travels A LOT for work I was able to get insights on how to use the mobile app to be even more efficient when I’m away from the studio and constantly on-the-go. From running reports to send to my team to subbing classes last-minute, the tips from the breakout sessions have added to team efficiency overall. 

Bottom line—going to the BOLD Conference will give deep insights into how your industry is evolving and how you can use Mindbody software to run your business more efficiently. There is a wealth of knowledge to uncover during this 3-day event! If you’re a business owner, you will undoubtedly walk away from this experience with nothing short of motivation that will be beneficial for you, your staff, and your clients.
