“After tragic stories of young women being harassed and cyber bullied, seeing how the media portrays women, and women being under-represented in media, it’s time to power up the voices and get more women energized through a caring and supportive network of people who know what it takes to achieve success. These women are not afraid to discuss their challenges or even failure along the way,” says Breakenridge.
How Genevieve Weeks Franchised Ballet, Creating a Business Opportunity for Women Across the U.S.
What do you do when your business is experiencing unprecedented and exponential growth? When your business is changing faster than you can follow, sometimes your best bet is to bring in some extra entrepreneurial help through franchising.
Like most little kids, Genevieve Weeks got her start dancing in her parents’ living room, putting on shows for her family. But unlike most little kids, her love of ballet went on to manifest itself in a lifelong business career. While dancing in San Francisco, Genevieve started teaching a local school’s preschool ballet program—and it was love at first twirl. After seeing how frequently the youngest dancers were kept on waiting lists to take classes, she realized there was a need in the community she could serve.
Genevieve went on to start her own dance education program specifically for toddlers and school-age children, Tutu School, which she later franchised. Hear all about how Genevieve made the jump from ballet dancer to business owner, plus everything she’s learned along the way, in this week’s episode of Women Worldwide.
