I could brag about having been a successful artist, a successful musician’s manager, or having led a successful label.
But let’s be honest, if all of that was working out so well for me, do you think I would spend my time helping others? I would be too busy handling my own stuff!
I’m none of that, though. I guess you could call me a “nobody.”
Of course, to be involved in the “music industry,” most of us start out by making music. That’s where my story begins. Then I founded my own recording studio, where I was a mixing and mastering engineer.
I worked with artists all over the world, and trust me, I mean it: Asia – Europe – Africa – North and South Americas.
My roster included independent artists, musicians working with boutique labels, and even major touring acts.
Here’s the plot twist:
I left music behind. To cut a long story short, I eventually founded my own tech startup company for three years. My platform was innovative and received recognition from various leading organizations and public authorities throughout the industry.
Sure, it was demanding and intellectually challenging, but boring as f*ck when compared to working with artists.
Deep down, I’m an entrepreneur through-and-through, who truly cares about impacting people in meaningful ways. I finally found the sweet spot where my strengths and passions align: People – Music – Business
I will not brag about having worked with [insert fancy award here] – nominated artists. It’s all meaningless to me.
What I want to take credit for is for positively impacting and changing people’s lives.
My artists, my students…
