Seas. 4 - Ep. 13 - DIY Rock Career Part 1 - WHY Do You Want to Be a Successful Musician?

Hello and welcome to the Powered By Rock Podcast!

Today I wanted to block off some time to speak directly to the musicians that listen to the podcast, and use my background in business to help give some good advice on what TO DO and what NOT TO DO in the music industry.

This is going to be part of an ongoing series of topics inspired by my desire to help musicians make money from their music without having to sell their souls to a record label or get screwed over.

This is the DIY Rock Career methodology. You create your own career with your own terms to profit off of yourself and your own work while building a loving, supportive fan base along the way.

These episodes will still be interesting to any of you who are NOT musicians listening as well, because a lot of the concepts I talk about today can not only be applied to music, but to pretty much any business, any career or just to your everyday lifestyle.

In today’s episode, I want to spend some time talking about the topic Why Do You Want to Pursuit a Career in Music?, and how you, as a musician, can apply these ideas to your music career right now to help make progress towards the end goal of making a living from your music without having to work a day job.
