Hiring Directors and Managers to Free Up Your Time [7FMS Ep. #30]

by Daniel Patterson


It’s a cliche’ at this point to point out that it’s hard to run a business alone…

And that you need to hire people to help you scale up.

In this episode, Nate and Daniel give practical steps to hiring directors to help run your programs for you.

It’s the only way you’re going to scale up in a sustainable way.

And the best way to do this is to promote from within!

Not only that, Nate gives a lot of real life examples of how his support staff freed up his time and improved the quality of his school.

  • What department roles does Brooklyn Music Factory currently have? What about previously?
  • Ideas for getting more out of your department heads and managers?
  • Roundup of the 3 biggest benefits of directors and managers – and what BMF’s Camp Director is in charge of
  • The 2 big lies we believe about hiring a director
  • What’s the “ROI” of department roles? Is it really worth it?
  • Conclusion: You are underestimating the value of these roles
