The bigger the footprint of your business, the more you have to pay for rent/lease, right?
What if you could downsize your business to the size of a shipping container?
In the last 3 days I’ve come across 3 businesses that have done just that.
#1: A drum school in the back of a small truck
I had just dropped my boys off at their primary school and came across a small truck in the staff parking lot.
I peeked inside and met Phil Upton.
Phil teaches school kids the drums out of his truck which is set up with 3 electric drum kits.
He can teach up to 3 students at a time.
He serves schools throughout Tauranga for weekly lessons.
He bought the business off the previous owner, rebranded, got the truck signwritten, did some promotion, and tripled his business in a few months.
The kids love it because they get out of class sometimes to practice.
The parents love it because they don’t have to drive their kids anywhere outside of school hours.
And Phil loves it because he’s doing what he does best – teaching kids how to play.
