<<My husband and I have started a weight loss support group for low-carb dieters, where members pay a one-time registration fee, then they pay a small fee at each weekly meeting to keep their membership current. We have started with 2 weekly meetings, one Monday morning in northwest Austin and the other Monday evening in central Austin.

The business model this brings to mind is a store front church, or a new religion. You need to find your twelve disciples.

I wouldn't concentrate on collecting fees, but on making converts. Emphasize invitations to a FREE weight loss clinic!

Of course, you can go broke giving your services away, too.

Sounds like a tough row to hoe. Good luck.
