Participants from all over the world have joined this year’s course with just one purpose; to become successful within their spa management. It is fantastic that we have reached out to so many people and we are really glad to be able to coach and inspire for the future of spa management! We are also very thankful for the inspiration and motivation we get back from our participants.
The very first module of the course contained finance and the participants have sent in their first draft of their own profit & lost statement. For some this was simple already driving a business and updating their current P&L, but for other this is a brand new world. Just before the course started I got the question: “Why does your course start with finance, since all other spa management educations does not?” That was a good question, and we find it beneficial to start with this module because that reflects exactly how it works in the real world. You will always have to go back to your budget when introducing a new treatment, updating your shop area or taking your staff on spa workshops..
When you are aware on where you stand and where you are going – you can achieve anything. I often meet people working in the industry that are not interested in the finance parts, at all. Some people don’t believe it is possible to focus on the hard skills together with the soft skills; described as the feeling and passion for wellness, energy and people. I would say that is not true at all, you should be really lucky if you already have the soft skills (that are harder to learn) but there is nothing to stop you from learning the hard skills! Everyone can do it! And if you do you will certainly get more successful and be able to spread your passion and inspiration even further than you can imagine.
We will soon update more information about the next Raison d’Etre Spa Management On-line Course starting February 1st 2013.
Wish you all a wonderful and productive Monday!
