In this small business highlight episode, Ashley Perry Wood and Gord Wood, fellow married-preneurs, and martial arts school owners join me and we talk about growing people along with business.

Even before pandemic hit, the culture in their martial arts school was different. They get people. They get business.

You can stay true to you, and run a profitable business without compromising integrity.

Ashley is the arts, the dreamer, the teacher and Gord is the martial as the root and support. 

We dive into: 

  1. How they met, high standards, and why competition is healthy.
  2. What it’s like to have a little stature but ferocious fighting spirit as highlighted in their son, Chance, with Cystic Fibrosis.
  3. Providing a safe landing for students and how to foster a family feel in business who have your back in the good times and the bad.
  4. The COVID pivot online and asking for help in business so you can run and do the things you’re meant to do.
