@los-angeles-hosts I know that this has been asked before, but as a (one of multiple in LA) chapter leader, I would really love to flesh out ideas for future community events hosted at our studio.
The reason I’m revisiting this is that we all have strengths and weaknesses as chapter leaders and business owners and I want to tailor events around things that I’m a little better at (for instance, if you wanted an event centered around dancing, I would be HILARIOUSLY outmatched, unless anyone wants to learn ‘The Cabbage Patch’ or ‘The Sprinkler’).
I’m not sure how to create a poll, but I’d love to have an open discussion with your ideas. Some ideas I had of my own (again, based on my own experience and strengths) would be
host safety (using technology like cameras, security systems, Smarthome, etc) to your advantage, to keep yourself safe and reduce your liability. Our space has a pretty cool setup, with nearly a dozen security cameras, alarms, sensors, etc and it’s come in handy several times now
Creating a GOOD set of house rules and learning to enforce those rules without fear of reprisals (bad reviews, confrontations, etc)
Improving your listing: taking better photos of your space (I’m a commercial photographer by day, so I thought I’d throw this one in) and listing ethics - ensuring that your listing is honest and accurately portrays your space
Learning to identify risky renters, to trust your ‘spidey sense’ and say no to a potential bad situation
I am definitely game for other ideas and would really like to welcome discussion (and also to get to know a few of you!)
