Luthier Consultation, Hourly
I offer consultation regarding the business of instrument repair.
Unsure how to get established now that you've graduated from Roberto-Venn or some other lutherie school? Want to know the biggest obstacles you'll likely face, and how to prepare for them?
Some of the most important things you'd normally learn by experience are what NOT to do.
You can save yourself a lot of emotional and financial pain by avoiding these actions. Trust me, I've compiled quite a list of things you shouldn't do. I've run my own businesses in two states and three cities, over the course of more than a decade.
My advice and methods won't make you an overnight success. I can't make you a cybernetic super hero. Getting good at this job- or any job- takes years. I'm not coaching you to a 6 figure business if you live in a small town. Anyone who claims they can do this for you is a liar, or is selling something that will not benefit you and your community.
What I can help you do:
-Acknowledge real-world opportunities and limitations for your business.
-Get a small lutherie business started (I don't advise on retail operations).
-Develop strategies to grow your business organically and ethically (no used car salesman bullshit or pyramid marketing methods here). I only assist in honest, hardworking growth that benefits you and your community. Why would you want to grow in any other way?
-Work through a rut in your small lutherie business.
Let's get together and figure this out. I've got years of experience in this realm. You can do it.
