A Special Video Message for You From Kris Murray

From the desk of Kris Murray:

Many child care business owners are facing immense challenges. You may be experiencing all of these, or you may be feeling more stable and successful than you’ve ever been. Most likely, you’re somewhere in the middle.  

    • You are still under-enrolled – whether it’s just 1 child or 100, you’re leaving money on the table
    • You still can’t find good people to hire, or you can’t afford them
    • You’re still in the classroom 
    • You’re more overwhelmed than ever
    • Your EIDL Loans have come due and you’re having trouble making the payments
    • You have no clear financial metrics or enrollment data, you just know it’s not good 
    • You have zero time to focus on how to get out of this mess

This 2-day event has been specifically designed to help you find a NEW PATH to solving these challenges once and for all in your business. It IS possible, you just need new tools to deal with the new landscape we are living in.

We are here to teach you both how to get “back to basics” as well as new advanced strategies to help you conquer these issues. We want to come alongside you and help you find time in your week so you can focus on what matters – key business best practices and shortcut strategies that you’ve never been taught or may have forgotten along this challenging journey we’ve been living since COVID-19.

For many of you, time is of the essence. If you are feeling desperate, burnt out, and may even be thinking about closing your doors, this event is ESPECIALLY for you.
