Successfully Delegate Your School’s Finances [7FMS Ep. #44]

by Daniel Patterson



Without delegation, your business won’t grow (I know it’s a cliche’, stick with me here).

One of the very first roles you should delegate (other than teaching) is actually around your school’s cash and finances.

No – I’m not talking about billing and invoicing.

I’m talking about bringing on someone who can be an advisor and a partner in your school’s financial bucket.

In this episode, we give practical tips in delegating the financial wing of your school…

We reveal what part of your school’s finances should be delegated and which can NEVER be delegated…

Common reasons why school owners avoid taking ownership of this part of their business…

How to overcome low margins and poor financial results…
