Who Starts A Home Video Studio?

Should I own a Home Video Studio Franchise?

You just might be interested in the answer to that question. I know I am now and I was many, many years ago when we started selling studios. Who are these people? What are our Studio Owners like? Are they single? Married? Divorced? Do they have families, kids, or pets? Did they mortgage the house to get started or convert a 401k? What's their story?

What were their former careers? Are they just video geeks? Are they like you?

I don’t know only because I don’t know you (yet). Let’s take a look at who buys a Home Video Studio.

They come from all backgrounds: doctors, nurses, accountants, IT people, engineers, computer people, software designers, sales and marketing, insurance, telecommunications, video producers, screenwriters, graphic artists, animators, consultants, etc. The list goes on and on.

Some are married. Some are not. Some do the business on their own. Some have a spouse as a partner in the business. Some are men. Some are women.

We have sold to those in their 20’s and those in their 70’s. Age is a state of mind.

Speaking of a “state of mind”. That is something that all studio owners have in common – a new direction – an ability to “see” themselves doing something different. Becoming more than they were.

How do you learn to “see”? Well some would say that you either have that ability or you don’t. I think you do or you would not have read this far.

Of course, some people don't have it. Those are the ones who never call or request information. They may not like their present situation but the idea of “change” is just too much for them.

Another group of people can grasp the idea of HVS and can “see” the lifestyle that it affords, but they value their present state of being, more. In other words, they aren’t going to risk what they have to get something they want. And yes, you can really, really want something but be paralyzed with inaction. There are many people that could buy their own business but they stop themselves just one step short. I say just do it. Make it happen.

So who buys? Who starts a Home Video Studio? For sure, the people you see on our website. Great people. They are the “seers.”

The plain truth is that you have to be able to see yourself sitting in that studio chair before you sit there. Become a part of Home Video Studio today. Leave where you are and travel with us to where you want to be -- running your own Home Video Studio. Take control of your life.

The joy is in the journey, right? We are all on a journey. Some seem to move quicker than others. Some of us seem to get stuck from time to time. Some of us get stuck for 20 or 30 years or more and then one day, out of the blue we (they) decide to get unstuck. They decide to move on.

Some move on with us. Their next stop? Running their own successful Home Video Studio. How do they do it? How do they break those chains that seem to hold others firmly to their cubicle chairs? Truth is, sometimes they are just laid off and the choice is made for them. Other times they make the choice. Call me and we’ll discuss your journey to HVS – how you go from where you are now to where you want to be. And yes, you can turn your 401k into an HVS studio. I can help you with that.

You can call me directly on my cell phone at 866-714-1956 or 317-577-8220. Test me. I am here now, waiting for your call. You can email me at Call me today! Let’s talk.

May the Force be with you.

Rupert of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, talks to Home Video Studio Franchise owners about making a life change

How are you facing current changes and challenges in your life?

Denise and I were watching Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains this evening. I was pleasantly reminded of Home Video Studio’s Advanced Training from four years ago. Rubert Boneham, better known as just Rupert, (one of the Heroes) was our keynote speaker for Advanced Video Training #8 in February of 2007. He inspired myself and other HVS owners that day.

To me, Rupert represents the American Dream. He spoke about his core values and focused on the topics of never giving up and giving back to the community. He described both the challenges he had faced and the changes he had made in his life and how they were not always easy. Of course he talked about his strategies for playing the “game” – Survivor and his viewpoint on the game of life.

We also learned about Rupert’s Kids, his organization in Indianapolis that helps troubled youth. The giver’s gain is a core philosophy for Rupert and Home Video Studio. We wish him all the best in Survivor this season!

Home Video Studio is a second, third and fourth career for many people. If you want to make a change in your job and start your own business, HVS may be the solution. Join the Home Video Studio Family today. Let’s Chat: Call my cell 317-358-5932.
