I’ve coped with the fact that sometimes I just feel like giving up music. I never do though. Next month I will be 33 & I started my music business journey when I was 21 (2007). I lose site of the fact that I’ve been doing this for a living for 12 years! I put a tweet out that says everyone should pursue making a living off of what they’re good/great at or they’ll regret it. It’s ruff journey of ramen noods and beach houses, at least for me lol. So many ups & downs that I don’t regret. Every year I get people that tell me “You’re gonna blow up one day” and I respond with a “thank you” but I raised my son off of my music. I bought property off of my music. I helped others create careers with my music. I feel like I’ve “MADE IT”!
Of course as time goes I want to continue to grow BUT I’m not looking for this climax that a lot of others look for. The other side of the climax is the THE END & I’m in no rush to get there. I worked with T.I. some years back & he gave me the best advice ever. He said “Go for the slow burn & not the BIG BANG”. I’ve literally lived by that since that day. So my suggestion to all artists out their is to go for it & be ready for the emotional roller coaster that comes along with it. Don’t embrace the struggle, learn how to monetize your talent. Learn the internet IT’S POWERFUL. If you need help or suggestions or have any questions you can always JOIN MY DISCORD, I help artists and answer questions & genuinely build with artists on their. I want to see you win in your own unique way. I hope you have an amazing week. Bless
