Real World Applications From A Real World Working Independent Artist

IF YOU'RE NOT AN INDEPENDENT MUSICAL ARTIST... Read on anyway! It may give you new ideas for your own business, or plans for one. If you know any aspiring musicians, struggling songwriters, or nearly jaded indie artists, do them a favor and forward this to them.

HERE'S A QUOTE FROM LINKEDIN... “Self awareness is the primary pillar for emotional intelligence. Then, one needs to be aware of others and be able to manage/self-regulate. This, together with respect, is so needed today.” —Claire Knowles, Executive Leadership Co.

And self awareness is something I always push on my students. It's an absolute necessity for any creative artist. But, it's also incredibly beneficial to anyone in business. Hell, we may as well say it; In order to effectively grow in any endeavor or simply as a human being, self awareness should be a given.

Every day I get up a couple hours before anything appears on my schedule. During that time, I look over things I may have planned, read some inspirational or informative stuff, spend a little time doing things that keep me mentally and spiritually fit, and see what's going on in the world. My resource for a quick daily rundown is just that; The LinkedIn Daily Rundown. I like that it leans away from partisanship and towards generally what's up in the world. It's largely business, but I'm in a business. I like the trends towards purpose driven work and more progressive ideas beginning to fuel peoples' motivations. I see some very positive stuff happening... believe it or not.
