Most us are simply musicians who fell into this because of our passion for creating art in the form of better music, better mixes, and better recordings. Very few of us went to business school, have any sort of formal business training, or have experience running businesses in the past. Throughout The Six Figure Home Studio Podcast, Brian Hood and Chris Graham will help you learn what actually matters in this confusing world of business. Don't let the “business stuff” hold you back from running a successful home recording studio.

    Why "The Minimum Effective Dose" Is The Key To Getting Sh*t Done (Without Getting Overwhelmed)

    “HUSTLE OR DIE”.

    Instead of trying to do everything, you can simply focus on the minimum amount of work for that thing to be effective (i.e. no longer a bottleneck in your business).

    When your brain makes this switch, everything in your business gets so much easier.

Life-changing

Amazingly insightful information for business owners of all kinds, not just audio-related. These guys will go through a lot of topics to prepare you to run your business in this day and age of digital technology. Could not recommend it more. Binge-listened for months soon after finding it. A true gem.
