What It's About
The answer to the question, "Is it possible to make a full-time living teaching guitar?"
Notes from Chris
Episode 1181Welcome to Throwback Thursday / “Where are they now?” where we take an in-depth look at someone who’s story has evolved considerably since we first featured them. Last week we heard from a designer who grew her personalized wedding products business to seven figures in annual income. Today, in our latest feature, we’ll hear from a university administrator who creates a sustainable full-time income from teaching guitar. I remember when I first heard about Jake’s story, I was a little skeptical because so many people play guitar. In some ways, guitar lessons are a commodity. However, he approached it systematically by applying some basic marketing principles (including good copywriting) and ended up far surpassing the vast majority of other teachers. Listen to today's episode to hear Jake's updates...
