Graduation is not the end of learning. School is not the only education system.
Clock in. Work all day. Clock out. Grab dinner. Hang out with friends. Go to bed. Repeat.
If you find meaning in your day job, you may find this cycle rewarding.
But if that “work all day” part is full of not-so-meaningful work, you may hate this cycle.
Especially if you’d rather just be making music.
Releasing an album is no small task. So if you feel overwhelmed by the idea, join the club.
But, if you go into it with the right mentality and the right tools, it’s totally doable and affordable. And it can even be super fun.
In 2017, my wife and I adopted a baby boy. But adoption involves a lot of fees and such, so we went to our community to ask for help.
So I played a bunch of fundraising shows, and I normally don’t love playing concerts.
You see, I’m not a huge fan of performing. It doesn’t come naturally to me. I’m an introvert, so having eyes on me induces fear.
But one thing helped make each concert super fun and extremely successful: my friends who played in my band.
