MusicPreneur - The New Music Industry Mindset
MusicPreneur - The New Music Industry Mindset
- November 29th 2012
That time in the evolution of history that we've been dreaming about as artists and creative professionals, is. now.
For every sentiment echoed since the birth of civilization that a creative thinker or music maker have ever uttered that went like.. ONE day the MACHINE, the system, the big-guy, the boss, the "THEM" will pay!
For the rest of our foreseeable future a new music industry HAS finally emerged.
It's evolution and opportunities are now readily apparent and self-evident to those that see with
degree of depth.
Yet, in most cases the psychology across the vast majority of independent artists and creative professionals remains unfocused and primitive.
The New Music Industry Mindset = You are both an Artist, AND an Entrepreneur. You are a
Those who fail to embrace this mentality will inevitably play for peanuts, and whine about how
didn't Pay them THEIR fair share.
It's apparent that their are certain skills one has no choice but to embrace to survive in todays music business.
Yet embracing these elements with nothing more than a basic grasp, does
for you. We need to stop DABBLING... You might as well just do music as a hobby. Because
how you are treating it.
...and there is nothing wrong with that!
But seriously, every business person i've studied, and every successful person i know, BUSTS THEIR BUTT! They don't make excuses, they innovate and they market their innovations.
That's the only two things that drive a business, everything else is just an expense.
They are forward thinking, strategic in what they learn, IMMERSE themselves into their projects, and then when they receive the rewards, they aren't surprised.
They are quietly and humbly proud, but they know that they have EARNED IT.
I encourage you to study business and marketing ad-naseum...
I encourage you to WORK when you don't FEEL like it.
When you get there, you will understand why.
The whole world and the New Music Industry is WIDE OPEN with possibilities, waiting for you to embrace it and contribute something AMAZING!
Don't get stuck in any mentality of distinguishing yourself by saying something like... "Well, i'm me, isn't that good enough?"
No. It’s Not.
MusicPreneurs realize that they are worth the VALUE they are able to provide in or to peoples lives.
This is what a MusicPreneur does.
They embrace BOTH sides of their Music. Business. and they creatively utilize their brain in BOTH areas to create opportunity and spread their message.
A MusicPreneur is ANYONE who is in the music industry in the modern world.
This means both Industry Side, AND Artist Side.
It is the 21st century.
It is the best time ever to be a music maker.
You don’t need to rely on anyone else.
You cannot expect anything from anyone or think that anyone OWES you anything.
You have to provide value.
We are now experiencing the very real shift of actually leaving one WHOLE world of how the music business used to be, and are almost completely setup in a new town with new rules and about as many opportunities as anyone can imagine.
We are Content CREATORS in The Modern World, the new gold rush, is literally upon us, but just like a hundred years ago, you gotta dig, you gotta know what you are doing, and you have to do the work.
Although it can seem like a bunch of people running around with pitchforks and shovels that they don't know how to use, while the only people actually walking home with cash in their pockets are the ones selling shovels...
YOUR CREATIVITY is the DRIVER. Nobody wants it more than you do. No one else can do the work... BUT we are in The Dawn of the Artist and Entrepreneur, and as more and more savvy artists, songwriters, and musicians start to include their marketing and promotional strategies as a PART of the expression of their message, their story, their music, we are going to see more and more MusicPreneurs striking gold and illuminating all that lurks JUST under the surface...
P.S. And for god’s sake, if you haven’t signed up yet, it’s free AND you become a PART OF THE CLUB, girls like you more and money pops out of your printer, so go and
DO IT ALREADY!
