In this episode, I’ll tell you about 5 challenges most beginning guitar teachers have to face. Starting your own teaching business isn’t always a bed of roses…but if you KNOW ABOUT the challenges ahead of time, you can PREPARE for them, OVERCOME them and be SUCCESSFUL. I’ll give you some great advice about how to do just that, and I’ll even share a basic marketing plan that will work for every new guitar teacher! There’s a ton of good information in here for ESTABLISHED guitar teachers, too.
PLUS, for STG All-Access members ONLY, I’ll give you 2 BONUS CHALLENGES that are related to MONEY and your MINDSET…two very important areas you need to focus on if you want to be successful!
