What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Sip & Skill is a completely new concept for Charlotte! We take an innovative, outside-the-box learning experience and mix that with the "paint & wine" concept to create an exciting & engaging new way to drink, learn & socialize! The classes feature a vast variety of different skills to try at a beginner's level! It's a fun, laid back, and affordable way to try something you've never tried before or to share something you love doing with friends! Most of our classes are BYOB, 21 & up, and offer an alternative to the bar! Its a great way to break up your old routine with something completely new & exciting; plus it makes for a perfect Date Night, Girls Night Out, or even just a place to make new friends with similar interests!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Have you ever wanted to go out & do something on a random Tuesday night after work but the choices were all the same old boring options? Sip & Skill is a new class every night! Our classes are fun, engaging, hands-on, & informative! We offer a new instructor with a new skill to be learned all while sipping on a glass of wine or a local beer, mingling with other students & playing corn hole after class! Sip & Skill offers something we needed in Charlotte and I am excited to see how many different types of students we will have from all genders, ages, & backgrounds coming together to learn an incredible diverse variety of subjects!
What do you love most about your job?
I love having the opportunity to bring Charlotte together; to make learning fun & hands-on & outside of the classroom; to see the excitement and empowerment people feel after attending these classes! I love that people can now afford to take a class on a foreign language or to create the perfect resume or for a personal trainer or even a dream coach! I love that students will have the opportunity to learn about branding their business, SEO, how to buy their first house, and how to make their own sushi- all in a local, unique space at an affordable price while making new friends, networking, & opening up so many new doors for their lives & careers! That makes this job the most exciting, best job I can imagine.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The absolute best thing I've heard from students is how empowered and uplifted they feel after the class! The students come feeling stressed from their work week and getting to unwind, relax, and create something new and to learn something they didn't know feels incredible and uplifting! By the end of class they are all laughing, they've met new friends & everyone walk away with knowledge they didn't have before walking in- knowledge they can use, share, & teach! It's a really amazing experience!
