Your Music Career
Your Music Career is a full time job which is why you need your day job to be as effortless as possible. It’s very important that you choose a job that doesn’t require a lot of mental energy because you’re going to need all of that to make your music career happen. Driving with ride share programs like Uber will help you pay your bills and give you the flexibility you need to make it happen with your music career.
One of the toughest choices you have to make as musician is fighting for your dream. It’s very easy to say yes to the new promotion that puts you on a new career path, leaving your music career aspirations in the dust. We, as human beings are social creatures, which means we like to fit in & be accepted by our peers. It’s natural to be frustrated when everyone around you has a steadfast career and you are still working a menial day job to pay the bills & make it happen with your music career. Whether we like it or not, society is built on an infrastructure that rewards those that have corporate careers. We’ve all had that discussion at the dinner table with our parents, loved ones, aunts, uncles and had to answer the question we all dread talking about: “What are you going to do with your life?” “I want to be a musician” is not the answer they want to hear. Why? Because the field you are going into is something your loved ones don’t understand. Parents want what’s best for their children and choosing a career in music is like saying “I want to be an entrepreneur.” It’s risky and not familiar territory and the “unknown” is terrifying to many individuals. The truth is music is a business and just like any other business it carries its percentage of successes and failures.
