3 Things I Wish I Knew When Starting My Business

3 Things I Wish I Knew When Starting My Business

I remember when I first launched my vocal studio, Songbird Studios, over 10 years ago. 

And how much I HATED tracking my expenses. 

After a long day of singing and teaching, the last thing I wanted to do was open up Microsoft Excel and total up my expenses for the month. 

All I wanted to do was the fun stuff: singing and helping my students become the best singers they can be. 

But as my business continued to grow more and more…

My relationship with numbers started to change.

Suddenly I found myself LOVING my numbers.

And got excited at any chance I got to talk about them. 

Because it showed me how much I’ve progressed in my business each month. 

And how I can use this data to make even smarter decisions so I could continue to scale my business to exactly where it is today:

3 studio locations.

And over 7-figures annually in gross revenue. 

Plus it allowed me to pursue other business ideas I had. 

Like the Singing / Straw. 

Like the Become A Better Singer Bootcamp

Like Love Your Voice Course. 

And much much more. 

So yeah…talking numbers, talking business has become a great passion of mine. 

Which I was able to share with a small group of entrepreneurs-in-the-making and other business owners a few weeks ago inside my Biz Coaching Mastermind. 

This will be a topic I’ll be talking more and more about in the weeks and months to come. 

Don’t worry, I won’t be pivoting completely away from sharing my usual vocal tips and tricks. 

That will always be the core of what we do here at Singing / Straw.


However, I will be pulling back the curtain more on the behind the scenes of what it’s like to create, launch, and scale multiple 7 figure businesses. 

So I could help more singers, artists, teachers, and speakers monetize their musical (or non-musical) talents. 

And kick butt in 2024.
