Posted on

Listen to it on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Managing a profitable language school goes beyond the simple formula of “more clients, more money”.

Whether you have a brick and mortar school or an online one, there are costs involved. The biggest expense is teachers’ salaries, and rightfully so. They are responsible for your students’s success and satisfaction and I believe you shouldn’t cut corners when it comes to their salaries. 

If you can’t afford new equipment, software or even your salary, some things must change. 

In episode 112 of Get richer, teacher podcast I talk about:

– the biggest expenses in language schools

– pricing strategy and how can you justify charging more than your competition

– stepping away from teaching to avoid burnout and effectively run the business

– being responsible for your employees future.

Running a language school is not a piece of cake but the right mindset and a little bit of strategic planning, you can pave the way for success and profit.

Hey, I’m Ola!

For the last 2 years I have been helping language teachers like you build online brands, connect with their perfect students and make more money. I used to be a teacher, a teacher trainer and even ran my own language school in the past, but I am now focused on coaching teachers full-time (and I love it!) So far I have helped over 400 language educators from all over the world and my mission is to see the world where teachers thrive, enjoy the hell out of life and their job and have a great impact on their students lives (without burnout or selling their souls).
