How a Musician Talking Marketing Poked Me in the Eye…

How’s it going?

Anyway, let’s get to it.

I listened to an interesting interview yesterday. It was the December 3rd episode of James Newcomb’s MusicPreneur podcast (

A musician I know of was talking about the business side of music. She mentioned something that really struck me when she said, referring to her email marketing, “You’re sending the best of yourself out there, every day.”

It’s a double-edged sword, I have to admit. Sometimes it’s a struggle for me, even with all the techniques, tips, and what-have-ya I’m come across, to write a 300 word blog post five days a week.

There are times I force it out, and other times I realize that one post I’ve written can spawn 10 others if I let it.

It’s mostly about balance and being open to possibilities.

And then sitting down to organize the fountain so that the ideas that come out make enough sense so that I can pass them on to you–and not sound like I’m messy and/or disorganized. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think that was a challenge.

It takes practice, and every day I do a little more of it.

Until next time,
