Today’s mini interview is with Scarlette Kerr, a teacher who went from having a very part-time studio while in grad school to building a strong student roster within seven months, even with COVID happening.

We talk about being a musician AND business owner, time management, and self-promotion.

Scarlette also happens to be the winner of the startup grant we awarded back in May 2020.
