The Secrets Behind a Lengthy Music Career

Are you an extrovert or an introvert?

For extroverts, making friends and maintaining relationships can seem easy… But you need to heed the introvert.

Introverts often need space, and if an extrovert comes on too strong they will retreat back into their shell.

That doesn’t change the fact that musicians need to build relationships with each other and their fans to have a successful career.

The good news is the more you learn about the human mind and generating goodwill towards yourself and your band, the better equipped you’ll be for your career.

Listen now to learn how you can set yourself apart by building quality friendships to grow personally and professionally!

What you’ll learn:

  • Working together vs. working alone
  • Maintaining relationships in the long term
  • The two personality types in the music business
  • Being humble in the music world
  • How to pass “the funeral test”
  • Creating a win/win environment for the people in your life
  • Keeping up with people as an introvert in an extroverted world
  • Managing your relationships with friends and family
