Wasting Time, Effective Delegation, and Building Systems [7FMS Ep. #46]

by Daniel Patterson



Are you doing tasks in your music school that a team member should be doing?

What is the value of the tasks that you are performing each and every day?

Are you doing tasks that are worth $20 or $10 even $ZERO dollars per hour…

When you should be focusing on high-level tasks that ONLY YOU can do?

Sadly, the reason most school owners struggle is that they have no framework for running a systems based business.

In this episode, we’re going to show you how to properly train your team to build systems for you…

How to make sure those systems run smoothly and accurately…

And give you plenty of practical examples from within Grow Your Music Studio and Brooklyn Music Factory to help you make a lasting change to your business.
