If you play your cards right there is an infinite supply of second chances. The late, great Zig Ziglar used to say, “Failure is an event and not a destination.”
As a creative, a songwriter, or an artist we are always inventing and reinventing. Starting and stopping. Rehearsing and performing. And life goes on.
The simple truth is that your dream will never die unless you kill it or ignore it.
I’m going to paraphrase Bob Lefsetz:
Creatives: Don’t follow trends, they set them.
Start over and start over again and again.
Know that some of the best ideas come when you’re not working.
Must change and grow. Look at Picasso.
Don’t complain, they know the game is rigged and the odds are stacked against them but they just deal with it.
Know that complaining only aligns them with the whiners who are not creatives. Authentic creatives don’t want to get dragged into that hole.
Not a single day goes by that someone doesn’t ask, “What do you really do?”
Simple answer: I help people. Here are a few of the ways I can help.
For an emerging songwriter or artist trying to break in the music industry it is against nearly all protocol to reach out cold to someone he or she doesn’t know and ask, “Hey, can I pick you brain?” Or, “Hey, I just wrote some new songs and I’d like to run them by you.”
To put it mildly, it simply isn’t done.
So how in the wide, wide world is an artist or songwriter supposed to learn the correct path?
Simple answer: I help people.
Now before any body gets crazy about this, I DO get paid for my services because I bring value to my clients. And it IS the music business not the music fooling around.
I offer personalized plans at affordable prices that will bring real value to you and your career as an artist or songwriter.
Never surrender. Don’t give up.
Here’s your second chance.
