Do what you know you were put on the earth to do. And pay your bills doing it. That's the mission of MusicPreneur.Com. You have a message to share with the world. Music is the best way to share that message, and entrepreneur is the best vehicle by which to share your music. New episodes go live every Sunday, Tuesday and Friday. Sunday's episode is a deep-dive into the life and career of an established entrepreneurial musician. We hear what makes them "tick," what has worked and hasn't worked for them, and much more. Tuesday is what I call T-T-T-T Tuesday. It's where we focus on one specific Tool, Tactic, Technique, and occasional Tough Love to help you in your journey as a MusicPreneur. Friday is just me and my 3 listeners discussing the events of the previous week, looking ahead to upcoming episodes and just generally having a good time!
