Break up with burn out

How delegation can help you reclaim your life and your business AND help you reach your goals in 2023.

As a dance studio owner, you pour your heart and soul into your business. You spend countless hours choreographing routines, teaching classes, and dealing with the day-to-day operations of your studio. But as your studio grows, it can be easy to fall into the trap of trying to do it all yourself. And before you know it, you're dealing with burnout.

The truth is, burnout is all too common for small business owners. According to a study by Staples Advantage, more than half of small business owners report feeling burned out, with 34% saying that running their business is the primary cause of their burnout.

So, what can you do to break up with burnout and reclaim your life and studio? One key strategy is delegation.

Delegation is the process of passing on responsibilities and tasks to others in order to free up your time and energy. And it's essential for studio owners like you. Here's why:

  • You can't do it all: No one person can handle every aspect of running a business, no matter how hard they try. By delegating tasks to others, you can focus on the things you do best and delegate the rest.

  • It allows you to scale your business: If you're doing everything yourself, you're limiting your studio's potential for growth. Delegating tasks to others allows you to scale your business, so it can grow and reach new heights.

  • It develops your team: When you delegate tasks to others, you're giving them an opportunity to learn new skills and grow professionally. This can be a win-win situation for both you and your team.

  • It gives you time to rest and recharge: One of the main causes of burnout is working too hard for too long. By delegating tasks to others, you can take the time you need to rest and recharge, so you can come back to your studio refreshed and ready to tackle new challenges.

Delegation is not as easy as it sounds, however. It requires a certain level of trust, communication and accountability. Here are a few tips on how to effectively implement delegation in your daily routine:


Identify the most important tasks that need to be done and delegate them first. Before delegating a task, it's important to determine its level of importance and whether it aligns with the overall goals of your business.

Communicate clearly

Make sure the person you're delegating to understands the task and has the necessary resources to complete it. It's important to provide clear instructions and guidelines for the task, and to be available for any questions or clarification.

Trust your team

Once you've delegated a task, give your team the space and autonomy to complete it. It's important to trust in their abilities and to give them the freedom to approach the task in their own way.

Hold people accountable

Follow up on the progress of the task and hold the person responsible for completing it accountable. It's important to set clear deadlines and expectations for the task, and to provide feedback and recognition.

Remember, delegation isn't about giving up control, it's about working smarter, not harder. It's about trusting your team and giving them the opportunity to grow and shine. And most importantly, it's about taking the time you need to rest and recharge, so you can come back to your business refreshed and ready to tackle new challenges.
