In this episode, we continue our discussion about our journey in building our Merrymaker business. If you haven’t listened Part 1 and Part 2 yet, we recommend jumping to those just so you can understand exactly where we’ve come from and how we’ve ended up here.
The waitlist for the MerryBody Teacher Training Program is now open. Our second cohort will start in March 2024. It’s going to be amazing!
This is what we spoke about during the episode
- How we came up with the idea for MerryBody. We were trying to formulate an extensive program, then we simplified it. Often, less is more!
- We jumped into video with little experience, start before you are ready!
- The idea of MerryBody was not just our bliss, but it was a really important message to share.
- We did 3 MerryBody challenges first and then in March 2019, launched our membership.
- How MerryBody went from a desktop website to a simple app and eventually a custom app. We are so grateful for Jarrod in guiding us through this development.
- COVID-19 happened and we had a spike in members during the pandemic.
- We hired a business manager and a virtual assistant to help us build out our systems and processes so we can actually give time to the more important things and put our zone of genius into play.
- We got distracted with our personal stuff when crypto became a thing.
- We finally hired Mum! It’s so fun to have her on board and part of it all.
- In March 2021, we bought an investment property together. And then, we bought another investment property.
- In 2022, we made the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. What an experience this first decade of business was, we are even more excited about the next decade!
Business can be hard, so you need to have a strong mindset and believe in yourself.
