One book I thought about buying but never did was Becoming by Michelle Obama. I wondered if it would be overrated. But now that I’m thinking about it, there’s a lot I could learn from her. Even if there was just one worthwhile idea in the book, that would be worth it. I used to look at the reviews and debate over spending the $11. I should have just spent it. I think I justread more

One thing I’ve been thinking about is working with music producers or collabing with other artists in producing songs that I can post to streaming services. If I want to learn more about working with other producers/artists, I could research it for two weeks. My first step is to do a simple Google or YouTube search. I’ve looked into it before, but I was just worried about not knowing the best practices. Since original musicread more

One thing that I can change just to test it out is my response to, “What do you do for a living?” For one, I don’t really “work for a living”. I don’t worry about making money. I just do what I want to do. I could say I experiment with different types of work from freelancing to online ventures. I have my own blog website and I experimented with publishing music on YouTube andread more

Sometimes, I suddenly feel inspired or feel a short burst of motivation to produce a song. If I act when it happens, I can finish anywhere from 80-100% of the song. I haven’t found a better system for producing music when inspiration hits. I just do it when it comes and get as much done as possible. But, these moments are rare. So, I don’t produce as much music as I could if I haveread more

One decision I made based on someone’s reputation was to restrict them on Instagram. They had a reputation of messaging daily, usually the same questions, and always expecting a reply. So first, I limited their interactions. And then when I posted something, they left several angry comments. Seeing this to be a pattern of their behavior (constantly demanding attention from me), I blocked them. Had they not messaged me daily from the beginning and leftread more

I’ve been undervaluing myself in producing music. I always wonder, “Is it worth it to buy a beat or hire a music producer just for me to produce a song?” Of course it’s worth it, for more than just the money too. It’s a growth experience. I guess I’m waiting until I have a large fanbase or until I have lots of money to spare. But, lots of artists start off small and grow biggerread more

Basically, the idea is to add any accomplishments to your portfolio every so often (like maybe once a month). That way, when you need it later (for a resume or bringing up for a job promotion), it will be ready for you for the most more

The lesson on free advice where you harness the expertise of other people seems useful, but I’m not exactly sure how to execute it. Right now, I’m learning Spanish and would like to learn more about producing songs on my own or collabing with others. I don’t exactly know who to talk to for advice let alone ten to twenty people. So, I might just rely on Reddit for now. To be honest, I don’tread more
