Do you know you are carrying a fear of change deep within you? You do, even if you don’t like the thought. We all do, so you are in good company! 🙂
One of our biggest fears is the fear of change. Even moving out of a bad situation can feel threatening, as you don’t know what to expect then. You don’t have the tools and no practice and therefore hesitate to the commitment needed.
Starting a business can be one of those fearful thing that makes you hesitant. Most singers,(Or artists in general for that matter) don’t see themselves as business savvy. Our training is about music and interpretation. How to shape the vocals in the italian, german or english way. How to make a gesture with a phrase. How to hold the neck to make that high C soar over the orchestra, rich with overtones. But nothing, nothing on how to earn money in a reliable and decent way in a world that many times appears hostile to our profession.
Let me tell you, that fear will not help you in the long run!
If you, just like me, think there must be a way to solve the financial problem, a mind shift about business could well be the way to go. Would you be ready to make that a goal for you? Because if you are, there is hope!
The persistence in reaching a goal is really key for anyone with a goal in mind! But If you just keep going in the same wrong direction, nothing will happen. If something is not working, change strategy!
Think about it, where has your present strategy taken you? Oh, how common it is for the musician to remain stuck in the non existent career because they refuse to change strategy.
It doesn’t have to be this way! Fear is an enemy that can be concurred. But only IF you make it a goal to change! For me the change came when I truly began to look into the direction of creating my own business around ME.
Write your thoughts below on creating a business around YOU! Change does not happen in a vacuum. Let’s talk! 🙂
