Your Business and Your Goals - Vocal Advancement Podcast #007

With 2022 ending, now’s the perfect time to look back on everything you’ve accomplished and look forward toward everything you’ll achieve in the coming year. In this podcast, we do just that by discussing how setting goals and coming up with ways to measure your achievements is important to being a successful voice teacher.

We’ll examine the importance of setting achievable goals while also remaining adaptive to unexpected changes. We’ll look at the goals we’ve set for ourselves and discuss how we measure our progress. And we’ll talk about how investing in our own education can benefit not only us but also our students as we become better teachers.
