Gold Alliance: Who Are We?

Founded by Rhee Gold in 2019, we are an intimate group of dedicated studio owners. Keeping the Alliance a small group allows for a unique a support system; together we have successfully strategized the individual needs of both our Canadian and U.S. leaders throughout the pandemic with business strategies, mental health sessions, and a determined dedication to support one another.

Together we are adept at increasing enrollment, retention and sales, as well as establishing systems for organization and profitability.

Currently we are 21 leaders representing 17 studios from across the U.S. and Canada.
