Taking a Month off From Your School [7FMS Ep. #13]

by Daniel Patterson


Each summer, Nate takes a month off from his music school to get distance from the business and recharge his batteries.

While this might be common with smaller music studios…

How is it possible for a music school owner with 25+ staff to do this?

Join us in today’s episode where we cover:

  • How your music school can thrive while you’re on sabbatical
  • The most important rule for a sabbatical… it’s not meant to be easy
  • What if my team is small or my studio is still new?
  • Strategies to delegate tasks to your team and stay organized
  • When you should announce your sabbatical
  • How to be totally clear on what must operate while you’re away
  • The only “price” you should be paying for a sabbatical – planning
  • How to clearly establish the rules of your sabbatical for your team
  • The purpose of a sabbatical… what will you walk away with?
