Do you want to boost revenue, streamline operations and build resiliency in your music business, all while doing less? It’s not only possible but highly achievable — and a necessary part of growing a mature company. If you’re a business leader, owner or manager, check out this session from Jake St. John, head of operations for Ensemble Music Schools, and find out how to get your business running and growing without your constant supervision. Drawing on lessons learned from 46 music stores and schools across the United States, all of which operate with local leadership, St. John looked at what kind of key personnel you’ll want to hire, tasks you can (and can’t) outsource and tech tools that will change the way you run your business — all of which will free you up to make bigger moves while your business blossoms into a salable asset.
