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.

    In 2000, the CEO of Netflix tried to convince Blockbuster to buy Netflix for $50 Million and they were laughed out of the room. 

    Now Netflix is worth $210 Billion and the last remaining Blockbuster store for $4/night on Airbnb. 

    The recording industry has made the same mistake as Blockbuster, and it’s the main reason so many studios have been shuttered in the past decade.

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

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

    “HUSTLE OR DIE”. 

    That’s the message you hear from so many business gurus. 

    Your to-do list seems to grow exponentially the more education you consume. 

    It can be overwhelming, exhausting, and ultimately send you down the path of burnout.

    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.

Make your passion profitable

Started to tune into these guys during a pretty dark phase of my career in audio. After more than 10 years in the industry, I was struggling to keep my head above water and not entirely sure how to stop myself from drowning. After learning more about The Six Figure Home Studio and listening to this podcast - things started changing dramatically and fast! Suddenly, I developed a secondary passion that I never knew I even had an interest in: being an entrepreneur.

Chris and Brian have a great way of delivering information in a non-condescending, conversational and simple way. These guys know what they're talking about and know what's important when it comes to running a business in audio. Before I listened to the podcast, I had very little money in my business account and now that is a very different story. That's only a matter of months for such a huge change! Sounds crazy but the things you learn here will have an astounding effect, not only on your bank account but on your mind and ethos when it comes to clients and business.

The hosts have experienced the ups and downs of the industry and have come out swinging - use this to your advantage and learn the right way to setup shop. I just wish these had existed years ago because this stuff is gold!
