Working in a children's business sounds like the most fun job ever to many people, and it can be. However, like any business, there are critical things that must be done to set yourself up for success. That starts with separating the two words, "children's business", and carefully considering how your product or service holds up to each of the them separately. Looking at things through both lenses can give you the clarity to offer something that will be both rewarding and in demand.
Most everyone dreams of doing something they love as a career. Sadly, most also never take what they dream of and take action to make it possible. If your dream is to work with children in a positive way and to own your own business, the path to do so may not be as elusive as you think. Children's business opportunities come in different models, many of which have been proven for you. A franchise might be the perfect way to jumpstart a new career and put you in position to make your dream a reality.
The Fall is one of the most ideal times to promote your kids sports and fitness business. Since it is one of the calendar’s natural resetting points with children, JumpBunch owners have long found the season to be ripe with opportunity.
Building a business around sports and fitness for toddlers and preschoolers sounds like a fun idea, but is it really something you can do? Absolutely. Not only is it a truly fun business, it can be a rewarding and profitable one as well.
The JumpBunch philosophy is simple. To kids, sports are an opportunity to play, and play is FUN! We've never met a child that didn't want to play and have fun, and it's likely you haven't either.
Making something fun for kids is also a great way to teach them. Through sports, we can teach children the value of being active very early and establish a lifelong path to fitness. Fun is the key to teaching these important lessons, and that is really the story of JumpBunch.
When you hear the words "sports and fitness for kids", most of us will picture children running around with a coach instructing them on whatever is being played.
What's interesting is the image that comes to mind most often that of a school age child - beyond the age of 6. A few might conjure up an image of a preschool child. Almost never will the first thing that comes to mind be a toddler, even though it should be. Sports and fitness is crucial for toddlers. In fact, we have 5 reasons why sports for toddlers is very important. You'll also see why it's such a a growing opportunity for the kids sports and fitness business.
Let's get right to the point. You go into business to make money. Sure, you are motivated by other things that draw you towards specific types of businesses, but in the end the business has to make money. If it doesn't, it's a hobby.
You might think that in a business like JumpBunch, which depends on school host locations, the summer months mean a significant drop off in activity.
This doesn’t have to be the case if you are willing and prepared to pivot to market changes. While it is true that some schools close for the summer, those that stay open year round experience a dramatic shift in numbers and ages of children in attendance. Plus, with children not in school, additional seasonal programs offering parents ways to keep their kids positively engaged and active are now available.
It's a legitimate question. There are many things that might be called a kids fitness program, but you have to look beyond the name to fully understand how they deliver on the promise the description implies. Of course, as a parent, you might not even know what to expect from a true kids fitness program. Let's give you some answers to both of those questions.
