If your tattoo shop doesn’t function as well when you aren't there as it does when you are, I have bad news. You don’t own a business. You own a JOB!
The good news is you have already done the hard work of sacrificing your time, family, reputation, money and sanity to build your shop. Now you probably just need to learn how to get out of your own way and grow your tattoo shop into a self managing company.
Some of the characteristics of a self managing tattoo shop are
The business thrives whether you are there or not.
The business provides a wonderful, creative and challenging environment for your artists and employees to grow.
The business generates consistent passive income that is always growing (You can’t trade hours for dollars forever)
Unfortunately many of these goals are never reached by most shop owners. If you think you might be running a job instead of a business, check out our Inside Fireside Tattoo Club.
From Mindset Mondays to Technique Talks, the monthly activities of Inside Fireside are guaranteed to provide the tools you need to run a successful tattoo business. Click here or on the image above to learn more about the Inside Fireside Tattoo Club
