Music Success Timeline
My story is the story of a music lover, that loves creating music and loves playing music like all Music Success Nation community members. And it goes like this…
The day I graduated from Musicians Institute Hollywood California, I was commissioned as a Musician in a local LA Club 6 days a week 3 hours per night gig. It was a demanding gig, but it paid well. This was part of my internship after graduating.
Life was good, but I knew that almost unsurmountable challenges were laying ahead. And I could tell that I was about to embark on something that I was not prepared for or that any school in the world could possibly prepare me for… The Music Industry!
Welcome to the Music Industry…
Thousands of Musicians arrived every year to Hollywood California to compete for a “place in the sun”! Basically for fame, glory, recognition, millions of records sold, money, sex and of course for some… drugs. For everybody, the American dream was different, for most musicians was very similar.
The competition is fierce and brutal and while the social veneer makes it seem mild make no mistake, it is a ruthless game and it became a greedy business which has led us to the present condition of the music industry.
The Music Industry makes shark tank world of entrepreneurs look like a kindergarten playground. While studying and living in Hollywood, I was told the real stories… not rumors actual true stories from the mouth of top managers, recording artists and power players of the music industry!
The days of “nothing to do with me attitude”, “I am a musician all I want to do is music”, “Don’t bother me with the business side I leave that to my manager, lawyer and record company people” – Those days are over!
A new breed of musicians has emerged since the new era of the internet and the crisis in the music industry… a generation of music entrepreneurs, a do it yourself attitude – A lets get it out using social media, print out our own music, release it online, create our own merchandise, and most importantly perform live to get as much exposure as possible.
My Realization Moment!
I realized that the real reason for me being frustrated and turn off from the music industry is I don’t like the game! Why don’t I like the game? Because it is a losing game! And nobody likes to lose…
Why is it a losing game for most of the real creative talented musicians?
Because of the rules!
Why are the rules set in a way that doesn’t serve the interests or benefit the music creators, talented performers, and musical geniuses not to mention the real reason why the music industry exists in the first place?
Because they were set by people who profit from the exploration of the talent of others.
There is a term for such people in the entertainment business – They are called vampires!
What is a vampire in the entertainment business?
A vampire is someone that sucks on the life blood, talent and admiration that real talented people have.Their existence is solely based on having to lodge like a parasite to the lives of talented people, great musicians, artists and geniuses.
In spite of all appearances and their continuous “act” they have or add little or no value at all to others and their own survival is totally dependent on attaching themselves to great talent!
Life has its own set of rules, like the rules in a game. Life is a game and if you don’t like your life, for sure don’t like the game you are playing!
When you don’t like the game your are playing you have several choices:
1. you either put up with the game in spite of the fact that you don’t like it,
2. change the rules of the game if you can, or
3. refuse to play that game at all and create a new game for yourself with a new set of rules.
That led me to a life turning point! – I made a decision…
Life Turning Point…
I decided to create a new game for myself with new set of rules that is a winning game for everybody! Well for everybody except of course…vampires 🙂
Once I realized this and the fact that we have been playing until now a loosing game, I decided to take responsibility for the regeneration and evolution of the music industry itself and stop blaming everything else for things not going right.
I felt immediately refreshed and that a major shift had occurred with infinite possibilities that open the door to never before ideas that would forever change the music industry!
I committed to create a platform where I could share ideas, help real talent to solve their problems, invite power players of the Music World and launch basic foundation steps for long lasting successful music careers
