Create an Annual Growth Plan For Your School [7FMS Ep. #10]

by Daniel Patterson


Have you ever created a growth plan for your music studio?

An annual plan?

It’s one of those things that we know we should do… maybe even feel guilty about NOT doing it…

But, it’s hard to work on something that you aren’t even sure you will use everyday!

How can you work on your “growth plan” if you are busy fighting fires in your school and doing the ACTUAL WORK of the business?

What’s the problem here?

The truth is, most people don’t KNOW what an annual plan is, how to make one, and how to actually follow through and turn it into a reality.

That’s why Nate and I spent about an hour explaining how to make a growth and productivity plan for your school in 2022.



This is a very practical episode… we spend most of the time telling you “what to do”… not WHY to do it.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Why creating a personal plan has to precede making a business plan
  • How to make your personal plan using Nate’s 7 questions (invest an hour of your time and have a significantly better 2022 than you would have)
  • Daniel’s step-by-step process for making a business growth plan for the year
  • How to go beyond “wishful thinking”… and actually make your plan a reality!!!
  • For larger schools, we show how getting your team involved will make your plan stronger

We thoroughly explore this topic in today’s episode…

And would love to hear your feedback!
