Topics we discuss:
Their experiences with:
All things that go into being a small business owner -- learning everything that goes into entrepreneurship, marketing, etc. Thinking “business-ly”
The mindset of applying business concepts to what we do as music teachers.
Finding value in our skill sets, pivoting, and knowing what you can offer your tribe
Shining a light on your products, services and offerings.
Charting their own journeys, but not having to do it alone!
The upcoming Ultimate Music Business Summit! This is the second one they’re hosting, and they’re planning to make it even better than last year, and more valuable for people, especially people like YOU who are building your businesses, teaching music, and working to serve your students really well and then ultimately to make more money doing that.
The major benefit and takeaways from attending the summit:
Taking control of your own opportunities
Scaling your offerings and serving your audience in new and innovative ways.
Networking and collaborating and stepping out of your comfort zone and interacting for inspiration.
How can you use those connections to gain new opportunities.
The business mindset and thinking of yourself as a business (i.e. money mindset)
The business space of music -- how we can learn from each other no matter where you are in the process or what your niche is.
How musicians want to see other musicians succeed.
Learning from others and applying it to your own business when you have an open and eager mindset to learn.
We're not in a place where we have to stay still, especially with everything online!
