The aim of this blog has always been to minimize the learning curve of running a float center. That said, operating any float center will naturally include a steep learning curve as you begin to implement your ideals of how a float center should operate against with the realities of your limited resources such as time, money, and personnel. Within several weeks or months you will find a consistent and familiar rhythm to your business as you start to become more comfortable with the ins and outs of operating it. Your float center will be running in a way that is both satisfactory to you and has a unique pulse that both you and your visitors will recognize. Initially you had no idea how to introduce your customers to a float, but now you guide them into each float with ease. Where before you were running from one end of the building to the other to grab ear plugs, now they are kept right next to your float rooms, hidden behind a curtain. All the big and little refinements you’ve made have turned your center into a smoothly operating business you can be proud of (and stay sane operating).
This is great news, right? Absolutely! However if at this point you feel like you’re done, you are missing an incredible opportunity to make your float center the best it can be. Let me explain.
