Small Business Development Center at Pinellas County Economic Certified Business Analyst, Kurt Forster, with clients, Jason and Jade Seibert, at Sublime Yoga.
Jason and Jade Seibert love yoga. In fact, they fell in love after Jason attended his first Yoga class taught by Jade. As their love for yoga and each other grew, they decided it was time to start their own yoga studio in their home town of Dunedin. But, before they did, they contacted the Kurt Forster, a Certified Business Analyst with the Small Business Development Center at Pinellas County Economic Development (SBDC at PCED). Now, the couple offers 15 different classes a week and has hired some of the top yoga instructors in the Tampa Bay area.
The Seibert’s goal was to create a cozy community oriented yoga studio where people would enjoy hanging out in their comfortable lounge before or after a class, or just to use the Wi-Fi and enjoy a cup of coffee. They wanted yoga classes tailored to meet everyone’s needs— from the first time yogi to the seasoned yoga veteran. In order to do accomplish this they first worked with Forster to develop cash flow projections. This allowed them to determine the feasibility of their business idea and set a budget for success. the solution »
