Featured Studio Owner

Home Video Studio owners come from all walks of life. They come from different backgrounds and cultures. They all have natural strengths and areas that need improvement. But one common trait among successful studio owners is a drive to take on the day; a willingness to try things. A thirst to drink what life has to offer. An exemplary model of this attitude is Deborah Williams, Home Video Studio owner from Erlanger KY. Deborah is our May Home Video Studio Owner of the Month.

Deborah's resume reads like a Hemingway novel. She's an accomplished flutist, a graphic designer, a wife, a mother of two boys and a personal trainer. She also has a sixth degree tae kwon do black belt and is a first dan in combat hapkido. Oh…and she also loves to knit and crochet. And how do all these life experiences and interests factor into her studio? "I like to take action and do things." says Williams. "I've never been one to shy away from things that interest me – no matter the investment. You've got to try." Deborah certainly took that approach when she decided to become a studio owner.

Spending eighteen years as a freelance design and layout artist, Deborah knows the risks and rewards of being in business for yourself. But, as with many talented professionals, she was finding it increasingly difficult to traverse the peaks and valleys inherent in such a position. "With no marketing plan I was finding it hard to get business while doing the work I had - then trying to get more when I was finished," Debra asserts. However, things changed.

A proven marketing plan was one of the things that most attracted Deborah to Home Video Studio. She had been looking for franchise opportunities when she saw an ad online. She liked what she saw, including Entrepreneur magazine's recognition of Home Video Studio as #1 Franchise Opportunity for photo and video services. Deborah called, asked some questions, got some answers and eventually attended a Show N Tell in Indianapolis. Soon she was in business with her own studio, opening her doors on November 16, 2011.

Williams is now running her business part-time and has already landed several film orders, a huge video transfer job and many editing jobs – including a sports highlight video. She is aiming to go full-time soon. Woman of action that she is, we know that when the time is right Deborah will be ready to take that step.

Show 'N Tell: A first glimpse

"Tammy and I came to a Show 'N Tell Saturday. The initial conversation was Robert talking about what it is to be a Home Video studio Owner. Of course we'd listened to the CD's over and over in our car for a couple of months. I think Then we had the presentation and we signed right there at the end of the presentation."

"Our Show 'N Tell Saturday was on May 11, 2002 - Mother's Day weekend! We were already operating our own video business, but we wanted to run it at a higher level with better equipment. We needed a plan and a system like the one offered by Home Video Studio. If you're thinking about HVS, you should go to Show 'N Tell Saturday."

Here's what we'll cover at Show 'N Tell Saturday.


MAKING MONEY
The number one thing we'll cover is making money in the video business. I'll cover pricing video as well as collecting the money. What's the difference between a $500.00 video and a $5000.00 video? Are you leaving money on the table? I'll teach you how we do it! Oh... what about a $30,000.00 video?
ADVERTISING & MARKETING
This is the great unknown for most people who attempt to enter our industry. How do you get business and find clients? I'll share with you.
TRAINING & SUPPORT
I'll cover our 12 month and 21 day in person training program in depth. How do we take you from where you are now to where you want to be? We are very good at this as long as you can take that first step and get to Show 'N Tell!
STUDIO EQUIPMENT
You'll be in my studio all day so we'll definitely get into the nitty gritty on equipment and gear. How will you outfit your studio? Do you have current equipment that can be used? Maybe and if so that will save you some money.
FINANCIAL GOALS
Home Video Studio is a short cut to success. You may be looking for both financial success and creative achievements - money in the bank and an Oscar! We make no promises except to put you in an environment with others who have the same vision. Our mission is to help you achieve success as you define it.
CREATIVE GOALS
Not everyone is out to make a fortune. Home Video Studio is a very fun and exciting business and lifestyle. Want to turn your hobby into a real live functioning studio? We can do that for you. Want to get your family involved in the business? We'll help train them. This is a very family friendly business.
TRANSITIONS
We'll discuss transitions and getting started. Going to quit your job? Come out of retirement? Convert a 401k? Will you work the studio part time until you can go full time? We will start designing a plan for you at Show 'N Tell Saturday.
FUNDING
We are experts in funding and financing. If you need us to help you find the money we would be happy to. It is easy to convert a 401k or IRA with zero penalty. Many people do a refi or a home equity loan. There are other avenues as well. One of the things we do on Saturday afternoon is cover financing. It's not that difficult. If you need consultation on funding call us.

We suggest you bring your spouse/partner to our Show 'N Tell Saturday. That's our treat. You'll know a whole lot more about running a Home Video Studio by end of day on Saturday!
