Pre-orders have officially closed. Thank you to everyone who purchased the bonuses. The manuscript for the book is almost complete and will be available for purchase soon. In the meantime, you can still order my first book, The New Music Industry.
One of the best parts about running The Music Entrepreneur and creating resources like this is that I get to connect with people just like you. People that are out there putting everything on the line in an effort to create art that matters.
Writing a book is no small matter. You often hear that it will be more work than you think it will be, and I found out firsthand that this could not be more true.
Ultimately, what matters is that my resources are helping you in some way. That’s what I care about.
There is still so much more to explore together, so much ground to cover. And that’s one of the reasons why I am working on a new book, a resource that’s packed with ideas to help you in your artistic, creative, music, and/or entrepreneurial career.
I’ll be honest – writing and publishing additional books has always been a part of my plan, but this one came about in a rather unique and spontaneous way. It was inspired.
One day, I sat down to write my weekly eBook. That’s something I was in the habit of doing at the time. I don’t think I wrote more than 1,000 words, and I immediately knew that what I was writing was more than just another eBook. So I decided that it needed to be turned into a full-length book.
The working title of the new book is Flashes of Elation: Navigating the World as a Sensitive, Creative Soul.
Here’s what Flashes of Elation is About
What do you struggle with most as an artist?
Do you feel like you’re constantly riding an emotional rollercoaster? Are you sensitive to other people, their emotions, your emotions, or various life events? Do you constantly obsess about small things? Are you easily bored? Do you find that your natural tendencies always get you into trouble, whether it’s with relationships, finances, or health?
I’ve talked to way too many of you to not know the kinds of things you wrestle with on a daily basis. As an artist myself, I’ve encountered my fair share of disappointments, frustration, challenge, and periods of self-loathing.
I don’t pretend to have the answer to all those problems. What I can offer is my experience.
In Flashes of Elation you will learn:
- How to be truly productive, and what that really means.
- How to stay inspired more of the time.
- The importance of personality types, and the dangers of ignoring your natural tendencies.
- Why collaboration can be the most beautiful, or most heartbreaking thing for artists.
- How perfectionism is holding you back, and what you can do to lessen its burden on you.
- The true meaning of “passion”, and the futility of trying to “find” it.
- How everything has the potential to become a “job” at some point, even something you love to do.
- Why frustration is unavoidable, and what it’s actually pointing to.
My goal is to make the book as empowering as possible, because I know how hard we can be on ourselves as artists.
