Episode 2 - Don't let THIS hold you back from kicking ass in 2020!!

Have you ever caught yourself saying things like… “When I have the money I will…” or “When the timing is right I will….”

How about….when I can afford the right gear I’ll be able to make great music.

It’s always fascinated me how we can be so wired to argue for our limitations. Why...

Episode 1 - Yes...You Can do All the Things

Welcome to the first episode of Produce Like a Boss!

In this episode, I talk about the juggling act of writing, performing AND producing your own music!

Doing ALL the things at once can be a bit overwhelming when you're wearing multiple hats, especially when you’re still developing and mastering those skills separately, but it doesn’t have to be.

In this video, I talk about how you CAN do ALL the things without losing your mind.

“If I didn’t get this right away, I must not be meant to do this!!”  THAT is the curse of natural talent.  Natural talent has spoiled you.

To my pleasant surprise, my accountant’s first words were; “Well, you’ve made quite a bit more than last year….about 20k more, so that’s good.” My eyes went wide. I looked down at the paperwork, and there it was... The number stuck out to me, not because it was big, but because it surpassed the most money I had ever made at a “real job”.
