SEED TO FLOWER:
SharQui’s take on a Bellydance Business’s Growth Cycle
Are there times in your bellydance teaching business when you feel like you’re at sea, being tossed around in uncharted waters? As an instructor, you already know what it takes to go from a seedling, to a beginner bellydance hobbiest and to a fully bloomed artist. If you want to make money as a pro instead of having pro-level skills and an extremely expensive hobby, here’s some good news. There is a map for how to grow a profitable and predictable bellydance business. I’ll go ahead and tell you right now! Be marketable, do marketing, and manage your money. In my webinar I’m going to tell you all about our formula that took decades to perfect.
Thursday June 27 from 8:00-9:00pm
When people ask me what I do I say:
“I help women and men reach their fitness goals with the Beauty, and Spirit of bellydance along with the Power and Strength of group fitness.”
But what I really want to say is:
“I help remind women and men that they are already Beautiful, Strong and that they CAN do it, dammit!”
Hi, I’m Oreet – As you’ve probably guessed, teaching people how to bellydance while getting a workout (and having fun) in a supportive atmosphere is my sweet spot. I’m super-passionate about teaching and able to encourage and challenge participants while still helping them find their way.
And when it comes to turning people who thought, “I can’t do that!” into “Oh snap, I really can!” or “I’m too fat!” into “Damn I’m fabulous” – I’m the one.
I’ve got 20+ years of experience as a fitness instructor plus grew up with art form of bellydance— and I’ve led packed classes and workshops in the U.S. and Japan.
I’ve been featured on NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN to name a few and have the titles Bellydancer of the Year, Jewel of the Nile, Entertainer of the Year and Middle Eastern Dance Champion of North America.
I have been growing my business, SharQui, since 2000 and have almost 100 instructors globally. I hustled with heart for many years without mentors and have made expensive mistakes. The key is, stay with it. I’m honored to be a part of the Belly Dance Business Academy as an instructor! (wish BDBA was around when I was growing my biz). I will be offering classes on how to up level your teaching career, marketing, business set up, how turn your bellydance class into a fitness class, bellydance competitions, and more.
Thank you for the honor of being your coach!
