Recruiting and Retaining a General Manager for Your School (Part 2) [7FMS Ep. #63]

by Daniel Patterson


How great would it be to have a capable team member that you can trust to handle the day-to-day tasks and admin in your school to a general manager?!?!

If it sounds like a pipe dream, then I’d recommend listening to this week’s episode.

Today, we look at how to find, hire, recruit, and retain a great general manager for your school.

This is the 2nd episode in which we interview Jeff Homer… an entrepreneur who has purchased 41 music schools over the past 4 years. He has 30+ general managers working for him to run schools all over the United States!

He has a wealth of experience and knowledge for those who want to empower their TEAM to run their school.
