What It's About
A mobile yoga and meditation studio that specializes in in-house classes for business and corporation employee teams.
Words of Wisdom
When she first started, McKenna offered some free yoga classes advertised through her website, email list, social media, and some bits of press a friend with a small PR company helped her acquire. This allowed her to get experience and feedback from users so that she could fine-tune her service to suit the needs of her customers.
While doing some keyword research, McKenna found out that “mobile yoga in Los Angeles” was a common search term for companies looking to have yoga at the office, and this was the basis for her mobile yoga studio. She built up the SEO for her website, Chakra 5, and incubated the brand online by publishing strong content on her blog.
Notes from Chris
Today's episode features a side hustler named McKenna Rowe starts a mobile yoga side hustle, Chakra 5. It offers yoga and meditation classes by appointment to schools, offices and other organizations. The best part is that she only has to work a handful of hours a week in order to maintain this five-figure business! When you hear about something called "mobile yoga studio," you know right away what it is, and it's no surprise that it's been so successful because yoga itself is very popular—especially in a major metropolitan area like Los Angeles. Naturally, there are a lot of people who want to do it or do it more often but who are working 40, maybe 50 hours a week at stressful jobs, so for them, working for a company that provides this opportunity could be a real benefit. And this lesson is applicable no matter what you decide to go into: when people are busy but still want to take care of themselves, what can you bring them? That's what we see in today's story with a great result—more than $40,000 a year in net income—working only a few hours a week. Watch the video below to see what Chakra 5 is all about:
