Being a DIY musician involves more than just writing or performing. There's the side most people don't see, the business behind the scenes. It's a necessary element for independent artists to include in their daily routines if they want to keep it all going. I'm taking some time to repaint the big picture for myself, to dig deeper, improve the way I spend my time on biz tasks, and improve my systems & automating more of the behind-the-scenes tasks--all driven by goals for where I see myself going.
I often hear people looking at he business aspect of things as being un-fun, a bore, a necessary evil, and unromantic. I'm choosing to look at it differently, and instead, I'm putting my whole creative self into it.
For those of you cheering me on, THANK YOU! Know that these improvements will mean I'll have more time to write and produce awesome new music for you, and in a sustainable way. Over the next few months you will notice some changes on my website, newsletter, social networks and more. I'm committed to my music and I'm stepping it up.
How about you? Do you have goals set to enable you to live the life of your dreams?
