“Tom has helped me teach my guitar students better by helping me improve my own mentality towards teaching. I taught for a long time before meeting Tom. I took it pretty seriously, but it was more of a hobby, not really for seriously making money. And now that it’s actually a business and Tom has taught me how to approach it as a business, I’ve become more serious about bringing real, really good value to my student and that has made me a much better teacher.”
My background is in music. I have a master’s degree in music, but all through my schooling nobody every taught me anything about business, nobody every taught me anything about how to succeed in business. So when I found Tom it was a completely different set of skills that he had to offer to me. And I was working a law firm at the time… really was not what I wanted to do and so having someone come along and say I can teach you how to actually make a business and live off that business doing what you love to do was all I needed to know. I got a 45-day trial and when I went… I got a few of the calls and they were fantastic. I mean there was a bunch of stuff in the calls that I never even thought of. So that was one thing that I knew that convinced me that the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle was right for me.
One of things that has improved since joining the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle in terms of my teaching ability is being able to teach people not only in a on-on-one setting, but in other settings that are actually better than just the one-on-one format. These are things that I never even thought about before joining the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle, but now that I have seen the light so to say, it has made me a much more effective teacher working in different formats.
It's massively motivating, because there are people who have multiple times the number of students that I have and they’re hugely successful and seeing that the things that I’m learning when they are implemented actually work, is very motivating for me to get down and do the work that it require to be successful.
Specifically seeing someone who was making $20,000 a month was very inspiring, and that really kind of kicked my butt and got me inspired to really work on my business and do the things that Tom teaches us to do.
