I got kicked out of the house when I was 15 years old.
I’ve been on my own ever since, always struggling, always hustling, and always living in survival mode.
I’ve lived with friends’ parents, on people’s couches, and even in my car at one point.
I was always that friend that my more successful friends always had to pick up the tab for if we went out to dinner.
I always had “hand-me-down”... well… everything…
…from furniture, to clothes, to makeup, you name it.
And I wouldn’t even think of buying myself anything new until the duct tape that held the old thing together was falling apart.
Still, my big “why” in wanting to build a successful career as a musician was so much more than just wanting financial freedom. I wanted to be a 6-figure producer but not because that was the cool thing to do!
Shocker, I know!
Being a music producer for me wasn’t really about the money.
It wasn’t just because it allowed me to create music in multiple genres, (instead of being told by another industry “bigwig” that I needed to pick a lane and stick to it 🙄)
...Or that it finally allowed me to get my music into film/tv, and create a 6-figure business from my home studio.
Deeper down, it was because I really wanted to take control of my life.
I didn’t want to be a starving artist anymore.
I wanted to prove to myself that even without help from my mom..
…and even without a highschool diploma,
that I could make something of myself.
Because I wanted it badly enough.
And because I was willing to do whatever it took.

Regardless of the stage you’re at or the genre you’re in… if you want to succeed, you need to ask yourself ONE question:
Think about it for a second.
In fact, better still, grab a notebook and write it down.
Most likely, there are real reasons, important reasons, reasons best known to YOU.
People you want to spend time with
Places you want to go to
Things you want to do
The one question every music producer needs to answer: Because making it can mean different things for different people.
For me, turning my passion into a profitable career is making it.
I know there’s a bigger reason behind your plans, your dreams, and your ideas.
It’s not to “make it” just for the sake of it.
Maybe for you, it’s financial security...
Or maybe you want to spend more time with your family…
So what is it for you?
WHY - really WHY - do you want a successful career in music?
