The Lincoln Music Teachers Association will sponsor a workshop featuring Randy Hawthorne, Executive Director of Nonprofit Hub and a Professional Certified Marketer, entitled Own the Business of You: Teacher's Edition on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, at Firespring, 1201 Infinity Court, Lincoln, Nebraska. Registration with coffee and rolls will begin at 8:30 AM with the workshop from 9:00 AM-noon, and a tour of Firespring following. Guests are welcome and may inquire at www.LMTA.info, contact us button.

Hawthorne suggests that as a music educator you often find yourself looking for students or finding a gig of your own. You're essentially the CEO of the business of you.

In this interactive workshop, music teachers and musicians will learn how to own their business, know their unique brand attributes, ten trusted networking tactics (both offline and on), and marketing methodologies that will help achieve their professional goals.

Hawthorne makes it his mission to help nonprofit organizations implement marketing, fundraising and organizational leadership principles to further their missions. He not only researches and writes on current nonprofit trends, he gets in the trenches and practices what he preaches with several nonprofits in his community. You can see him shoulder-to-shoulder with other community volunteers in activities for the American Marketing Association, Lincoln Community Playhouse, Rotary Club #14, Sheldon Art Association, Community Services Fund, Heartland Big Brothers Big Sisters, Leadership Lincoln and Launch Leadership.

For his community service, he’s been recognized by the International Festival Events Association as the Volunteer of the Year. Leadership Lincoln has named him the Bud Cuca Servant Leader of the Year and Launch Leadership recognized him for outstanding contributions to Nebraska’s youth. When he’s not helping nonprofits, he mentors students and young professionals, occasionally makes his way to the stage, geeks out on local history and goes on photography adventures.
