Jean Campbell has developed an intriguing business model for her yoga business that is easily applicable for a Pilates business. Jean’s model, which she spent the last 2 decades perfecting, is for people who don’t want to have a studio with employees, and who are entrepreneurial, or more accurately solo-preneurial.

This low-cost solo business model will enable you to make VERY good money with almost no overhead or setup cost, and you can set your own hours; as few or as many as you want.

Even better, Jean has developed versions of the model for both online and brick-n-mortar businesses.

Raph asked Jean on the show to share her exact process, so you can copy her model and build your own highly profitable solo business, starting right now.

Jean doesn’t teach business, or run business training, or offer business coaching. She has nothing to sell you (unless you’re interested in yoga classes).
