around 3 calls a week of which 1 so far has turned into a
regular client. So thanks very much for writing your ebook

"Subject: One Year Later After Reading
I wanted to mention that our Music Company Celebrated
it's First Anniversary in September. I Just wanted to let
you know how your book has influenced my decisions in building
To begin with: When I started this Music company,
I started with good working capital, solid technical skills
in I.T., Musicianship, and solid Business Administration Skills
(including logisitcs, and scheduling). I put these 4 personal
assets together and I am now actually making good living in
the Music Business 1 year later.
The company is generating enough revenue to
pay business expenses along with paying me a decent enough
wage to pay my personal bills. Even more, my wife should be
joining me in December (we will be in a position for her to
quit her day job).
Our Music Service is In-home based Music instruction.
I have 12 contract instructors assigned to
different areas here locally. We also have 2 band directors
(these guys teach 7-8 band instruments). Each instructor teaches
in what we call a "Student Pod". We have students (many in
the same household) that live close to each other and the
instructor makes a route to each household and teaches the
Of course, we all (the instructors) benefit
and it is worth everybody's while! We have over 100 students
enrolled, 12 instructors covering a combined total of 20 instruments
Here is what your book did for me!
1) Before I read your Book, my thoughts about
how to make a living in Music (teaching) were clouded.
2) Your book helped my Focus; it brought all
of my thoughts together so that I could make some solid decisions.
3) Your book gave me courage and confidence.
4) Your book gave a structured approach to the
elements of making a living at Guitar (and Music in general).
5) Your book outlined very necessary, and very
serious considerations regarding Marketing, and Business Administration.
6) The Principles in your book had Universal
Application; I expanded the principles to a higher plane to
accomodate my current business venture.
7) Your book, and your willing personal availability
was always available. I knew that I would have somewhere to
turn if I needed help!
8) Between my personal Guitar / BASS Students
and income from the instructors, I am actually making a living
9) My 11 other instructors are making a good
part-time living at teaching their instruments too!
