Why We Do This

We’ve focused a lot recently about the drawbacks and burnout that come with running a float center, but what about the positives? Why did we start our centers in the first place, and what are we continuing to get out of it? Amy talks about being driven by her entrepreneurial spirit and how that’s shaped what she wants for herself and her business with her second center. Lance talks about the magic of creating something from nothing that others get to enjoy, being able to employ others, and how to find balance amongst all of it. Producer Brian jumps on to talk about the satisfaction that comes from overcoming mental hurdles, defying the limits of what you thought you could accomplish. A float center is definitely a “cool kid magnet”, and Amy talks about the fascinating people she’s met and fun opportunities that have come about because of her center. Dylan talks about the quality of life he enjoys by being an entrepreneur, being the manager of his own time and working when he’s feeling inspired. There’s no looking back now...Amy has signed the lease to her second location. A floater having a great experience at Float Nashville led to a local news station coming to the center to do a story. You never know who might be floating in your tanks! Three members of AWOL Dance came to float at the Float Shoppe, a result of an outreach promotion Dylan organized. He’s also getting ready to launch The Heroic Summer Float Challenge, a challenge to floaters to keep floating throughout July and unlock perks as they float. The details and art from this campaign will also be made available to float community who would like to try it at their centers as well. The Float Shack is gearing up to launch their third anniversary celebration, and Lance reports from working remotely as he’s away from his center this summer.
