How Not To Run Boutique Business Plan

There’s a young lass who’s been helping out at the gym down the road.  She doesn’t look very old and it turns out she’s the daughter of a client and the gym was using her to cover when the 2 owners were too busy elsewhere.  This set alarm bells as it seems she had no training at all and got talked into ‘minding the shop’ one day.  This is where it’s so easy for small employers to break all the rules.  The two owners don’t seem to have any formal training themselves to run a business, let alone a gym, where damage to bodies can be an constant danger.  The rules surrounding school children and minimum wages comes in here.   What’s more worrying still is no sign of any public liability insurance – there’s nothing anywhere on the walls.  They’ll probably wait until a mishap occurs and then look into it!
