Don has a great mindset when it comes to building a BUSINESS. Not just treating it as a hobby but becoming the business owner and taking full responsibility for your financial well being.
This is a fantastic conversation that we need to have more of in the golf instruction business. It’s a conversation about finances, being a business owner, and how to grow.
We’re going to get into some great topics in this interview.
- The importance of goals
- Setting a budget (and some ideas on what should be on that)
- Profit margin for golf instructors
- The good and bad of branding
Don is making the transition from the 30 minute lesson model to coaching. He explains why he’s doing that and how it’s going. If you’re interested make sure to check out the course we put together with Will Robins on this.
We’re also going to talk about facility costs and how an instructor should think about that relationship. Why? Because Don is also a partner at a facility so he can speak to the costs and benefits for both parties.
We also craft the perfect proposal if you’re trying to teach at a new facility. Make sure to listen for this part.
