These posts really deal with the first step--inspiration.
"If You're Experiencing Impostor Syndrome..." by freelance writer Kristin Wong
"...Developing a Successful, Dream-Chasing Mindset" by photographer and online business woman Allison Marshall (Wonderlass)
And here's a bevvy of articles handing out specific advice for musicians from Dave Ruch
I also love keeping up with inspiring podcasts on my many long drives to gigs:
- Crushing Classical
- iCadenza's Creative Careers
- The Entrepreneurial Musician
If you happen to subscribe to Coro by iCadenza, check out the new micro-course I developed for them about how to get started as a freelance studio teacher, "Developing a Thriving Music Studio".
And I suppose this is as good a time as any to announce that, after serving as an unofficial career coach to numerous students, colleagues, and friends of friends over the years, I've decided to take the business public! Check out the new coaching page on my website to see what services I offer, all at very affordable prices for working musicians at every stage of their careers. You can also subscribe to my free newsletter serving up monthly career advice there. I'm excited to start this new phase in my life and hope I can be of some help to you!
