Evolution Power Yoga has been in business since 2001, and in the last nearly 20-year period since our opening, we’ve seen a number of huge challenges, including the aftermath of 9/11 and the 2008 financial disaster.
I’ve learned a lot over these years, both personally and professionally. Twelve years ago when the global financial crisis hit full force, I was first amazed that everything seemed to be going well…and then surprised by a delayed reaction and revenue drop. I ended up having to do a price drop that lasted two years until I rebuilt. I was not prepared with the experience I now have; I operated from fear and reactivity. In doing so, I did not communicate well when it mattered and with the right people. I felt like I was failing and was ashamed. I did not want to ask for help.
