As the CEO and a co-founder, my role involves a wide range of responsibilities. These largely fall into the categories of management, design, and marketing.
Management: I oversee the recruiting process of staff and instructors, as well as managing staff through weekly check-ins. I also set policies, ensure that each instructor has ample opportunities for professional development, and so on. I’ve also coordinated the work of various consultants that we’ve worked with over time, such as for SEO and content marketing strategy.
Marketing: Marketing is done primarily through PPC advertising, social media advertising, and building partnerships with influencers and other organizations, all of which I personally play a role in. This is also an iterative process and frequently involves my doing quantitative analysis to determine the business outcomes of our marketing efforts.
