Okay, so for anyone who doesn't know, I run a music school (a few classrooms, several teachers, some bands and a small upstairs social youth club thing for members). It has been a success, very hard work but a success all the same. I have been thinking about opening up another school for a while, because there are some kids who have to travel quite a way to get here, and I am sure that I could get enough pupils from other local schools to make it worthwhile. But how do I go about this? Obviously I can only run one of them, and I'm happy enough staying in my home town for the time being. How would I recruit someone to run the new school? Would I be better sending one of my trained staff there, even if it meant losing them here? Or should I advertise the job and hope that someone awesome steps forward? There is a chance I could work there for a month or so to make sure everyone knew what they were doing, but long term I know I have to stay in my home town. In the future I do hope to run a number of music schools across the country (and I have a few contacts in England as well who are making me think that there's a chance I could open one or more in the future there too) but just thinking about entrusting my idea and my vision on another person is scaring me!
