“Sharon is an outstanding and highly knowledgeable marketing professional and a shrewd business woman. Her guidance in establishing my own business, something I knew very little about, and her continued help and recommendations over a year later, has helped me immeasurably. At the founding of my business, she took the time to walk me through establishing my business, naming my business, the Suzuki Cello School of Austin, setting up a web presence and made suggestions for further business and marketing goals. In addition to simply setting up my business, she also encouraged me to consider my business position, branding and my ‘product’, things I had never considered as a professional musician and a teacher but aspects that clearly matter. Thinking deeply about my position has helped me clarify my long-term business goals and the overall vision and purpose of my work.
A little over a year later, she met with me and spent a considerable amount of time assessing the current state of my business and made further recommendations on a variety of topics, from additional marketing strategies to further promote my business to schedule managing and new programming for my current students. Sharon’s thoughtful and relevant suggestions helped me continue to consider my overall business strategy, my short-term as well as long-term marketing plans and goals and she recommended ways to build more engagement and retention to foster relationships among my current students and their families.
Her continued support, guidance, brilliant organization skills and enterprising approach inspire and drive me to achieve much more with my business. Her deep and invested interest and dedication in seeing my business flourish and my goals become a reality has helped me achieve my vision of my career as a Suzuki cello instructor.” -Music Studio Owner, Teacher
