Breaking into the music business isn’t easy. Duh! And establishing a sustainable business model within the music business is difficult. Double Duh! But every now and then, you just have to Celebrate.


Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not suggesting you forget your goals or your plan but I am suggesting that every now and then it’s wise to stop and smell the roses. Take stock of where you are and where you started.

As a part of the plan I share with all of my clients, I suggest that in the process of reviewing accomplishments or benchmarks monthly that they choose one and take the time to pat themselves on the back and say, “Well done!” Otherwise the journey can become monotonous.

I think it’s important to celebrate the little victories along the way.

In the case of Johnny Orr and Justin Weatherbee, after they played The Bluebird Cafe, we took the time to savor the moment before resuming the work at hand.

With Clint Richardson we are celebrating his latest gig with some of the top rock talent in Nashville last weekend.

Okay, Then What?

It’s simple.  Work hard, play hard.  Don’t miss a single moment of your career journey.  If you have someone assisting you, be sure they take the time to help you celebrate the victories, large and small.

You are an entertainer and your job is to entertain others. I humbly suggest you take the time to remember and celebrate the good times in your career. Not only will it make you feel better, it will help you bring more energy to your audience.

Okay, Okay, Then What?
