Why choose Ignite?

When you are ready to get serious in your business and take your studio to the next level, it’s all about creating a studio that will launch you to your next level.


I show you how to look at your business from the future and start strategically planning how to expand across all areas of your studio.


Having done it, you get insights from someone who is currently immersed in the industry, actively growing and experiencing the reality of what challenges are in front of us.


I went from 1 student to 1200, 1 studio to 6, and a team of 30+.


I have helped studio owners scale their business, increase their profit and step into their next level, and I will help you too. I give lots of hands on attention in this mastermind. You have step by step involvement in your studio from me. You get personal and individual guidance from me, plus an intimate community of ‘high-level’ studio owners who support one another and hold each other accountable.


Whether you are striving towards 250 students or wanting to build an exclusive boutiques studio, it is an exciting and challenging journey that will push you to innovate, strategise, and grow your studio like never before. With each new student, you will gain valuable experience and insights that will propel you towards even greater success

“Working for yourself can feel incredibly isolating, and not having anyone to bounce ideas off is hard.

The community is led with Jen’s passion and knowledge and boosted by the other wonderful studio owners in it.

Jen’s coaching is always informative and full of many pearls of wisdom, and she is always very approachable and realistic with her advice and suggestions.

With Jen’s guidance I am regularly increasing my enrolments and have tailored my offerings so that they suit what is best not only for my customers, but also for me and my family.

I am looking forward to a long professional relationship and continued growth with Jen’s support.

If you are sitting on the fence about making this investment, jump on in – you won’t regret it.”

“My biggest struggle as a studio owner is confidence in my decision making – so it’s been wonderful having someone to discuss pros and cons with before making big choices. Her experience means that everything has been tried/seen everything done in a million ways, so you can suggest ways of doing things that would suit my personal style well.

The process is easy! I was nervous for our first session – but Jen quickly and easily determined where I was on my journey and asked excellent questions to prompt me on where I’d like to go. Having the freedom to discuss what I feel would benefit me most on the day of each session is wonderful, but having you guide what I need to be doing short term has been excellent to keep me on track (not jumping way ahead and forgetting the little steps).

It’s amazing having someone with so much experience in my corner, and I’m looking forward to continuing. I would highly recommend Jen to anyone looking to make their life easier, and goals bigger!”

Both individual and group calls allow time to brainstorm ideas and come up with creative solutions to challenges. These calls provide me with the accountability,  insight, confidence, and support I need to stay on track and focused on my goals. 

I am grateful for the guidance and support Jen has provided throughout our time together, and I look forward to seeing what is yet to come.”

“If you’re looking for someone to help guide you through your studio owner journey and help you excel in every way possible, then you seriously need to consider working with Jen.

Before working with Jen, I was overwhelmed and struggled to compartmentalise the many things on my to-do list. As most would know, there are so many different areas of business management that you need to consider, but the training and coaching gave me very clear and precise steps forward that I could actually follow.
Jen shares her knowledge and wisdom so selflessly and doesn’t hold anything back. She truly cares about you and where YOU want the studio to go and helps give the practical tools to make it happen.

As a result of her systems and strategies, I have been able to grow my student numbers higher than ever before this year and have also increased profitability across the business.”
