Houston, TX – Authority Media Group, LLC congratulates Julie Bartkus, best-selling author of “Women of Influence: Breakthroughs & Innovations.” The book recently reached No. 3 in the ‘Mentoring & Coaching’ category and No. 5 in the ‘Women & Business’ category in the Amazon Kindle store on October 31, 2014.
In the book, Bartkus details how “Achieving Child Care Business Success” is possible for childcare business owners. Many started their businesses because they wanted a quality, safe place for their own children and didn’t feel one existed. Child care business owners have a passion for taking care of children and helping parents who need to work. Over time, that passion may dim as the realities of running a business and having employees take over.
The child care industry shows no signs of declining and cannot be outsourced, as more and more parents have to leave home and join the workforce. In a bad economy, a center owner might be thinking they should reduce their prices to compete in the marketplace. Bartkus encourages them to provide more value to the parents, instead of reducing their prices. She is instrumental in helping the center owners determine ways they can provide that increase in value.
Bartkus shared, “I’ll never forget an interview I had with one of my clients. He was saying, ‘Oh, you know, when the economy got bad, what we did is we kept our price the same, which wasn’t the lowest, wasn’t the highest. But we added more services. We gave more value.’ And people just started seeing the value that this place was giving. And it really made them stand out as the child care program of choice.”
Bartkus has recently established the Child Care Business Success Movement, so owners of child care centers and day cares can collaborate with and support each other, brainstorming solutions to problems or creating new ideas which they share with each other, resulting in more profitable and more successful programs, as well as happier parents and children.
