Dear independent artist,
I know the pain and frustration of financial hardship first-hand.
When I was a kid, my mom -- who did the best she could raising me by herself -- earned just enough for us to get by.
When I played music full-time in my 20s, it was a struggle. I had a great time and learned my chops, but I always wondered where my next rent payment would come from.
In my 30s, when I published a local music magazine (in St. Louis, MO), I learned and grew tremendously. But paying the business bills was a struggle, and there was rarely much left over to pay myself.
And just 10 short years ago, when I went through a divorce and was racked with debt, it was the most depressing low point of my adult life.
But then something happened
I realized that I could easily become a victim of this decades-old pattern ... and spend the rest of my life just eeking out a living. I could throw in the towel and accept that a life of lack was my fate.
Or ... I could say to hell with that idea and get busy creating the life, work and income I deserved!
Thankfully, I chose option #2. And life has gotten better and better ever since.
It took me a few years to pull off the turn-around, but I got there. I now make a great living doing what I love -- inspiring and empowering independent artists all around the world.
In 2007 I bought a nice home in the St. Louis suburbs. I never worry about how the mortgage or car payment bill will get paid. I'm able to travel a lot and set aside extra money for savings and investment. Plus, I have a wonderful girlfriend and a beautiful daughter.
Life is good. But it took a big change in mindset and a commitment to a few smart actions to get here.
Here's my best financial advice for you ...
If you're living a life of lack ... if you're frustrated by debt ... if you're worried about all the gloomy financial reports in the media ... if you're being hounded by bill collectors ... or if you're simply confused and uptight about how to earn more money with your music ...
Just Stop It!
That's right, stop it. You're only a victim of circumstances if you choose to be. So get mad as hell and take back your power!
Do you complain about the lousy paying gigs in your city?
Do you talk and think about the sad "starving musician" state that you're in?
Stop doing that!
Do you feel frustrated and alone and fearful that you'll never be able to live your dream?
STOP IT! And stop it NOW!
Or maybe this is your situation ...
You're gigging or running your own small music business. You make a few dollars and are doing okay, but you know there's gotta be more.
Maybe you play music part-time and want to make the leap to full time some day (sooner rather than later).
Maybe you're already a full-time musician, but -- like I did years ago -- you're just getting by ... or you want to rise up to the next level.
You know in your heart there's a bigger game you could be playing, but it always seems to escape you.
If any of this describes you,
here are the answers you need
A few months ago I got a call from Nick Nanton. He's known as "the celebrity lawyer." Nick wanted to interview me by phone, record it, and share what we talked about with his clients.
We decided to make the entire call about one topic that has confused musicians for decades: making money.
Well, the call was supposed to last about 30 or 40 minutes. But once we got started, sparks started flying. Something I said would inspire Nick to share his money-making advice. His comments would remind me of yet another revenue-producing idea.
He held nothing back. We didn't censor ourselves. We let it fly with dozens of stories, personal examples, and every solid piece of income-generating advice we could muster.
It went on like this for a good hour and 15 minutes. When the call was finally over, we knew something pretty remarkable had just taken place. We realized that all the tactics and techniques we had covered needed to be shared beyond Nick's circle of high-profile clients.
That's when we decided to release ...
"7 Secrets to Making Real Money with Your Music"
Here's what you get with this brand-new money-making resource
Two CDs that feature the full 75-minute interview during which Nick and I spill our guts about all the ways that successful musicians generate income. Listen to them over and over again to fully ingrain these strategies.
