Thereâs a fierce rule that I live by that keeps me safe in the music business â itâs simple: Never meet your idols. I still stand by that â¦ except today Iâm changing this to: Never meet your idolsâ¦unless your idol is Seth Godin.
I feel more inspired, calm and clear than I have in a long time.
I was once called the âlast enthusiastic person in the music business.â and I prided myself in that. But lately Iâve been feeling jaded and not quite so enthusiastic. I think that had something to do with:
1. Being empathic and sometimes feeling like an open receptacle to angry indie artists confronted by the amount of work ahead of them.
2. Reading one too many negative posts about the business and how we are all supposed to feel happy with less in the new model.
3. Traveling the world and hearing the collective gasp as artists scratch their heads and ask â how do we make money doing this??
Turns out Seth Godin has answersâ¦
Iâm going to change back into that enthusiastic girl todayâ¦
