Imagine a perfect world for a musician.
Every note you play is exactly right.
Every gig is a dream job.
Every relationship you experience is faithful and fulfilling.
Now compare your reality with that dream situation.
What are the key differences?
I’m going to guess there are three main problems that keep you from experiencing this heavenly situation.
If every note was always right, it would mean you had all the talent and inspiration you need to succeed. But even if we’re immensely talented, sometimes we lack the discipline and drive to reach our highest potential as musicians.
If every gig was a dream job, it would mean that you had all the resources you needed to reach every goal, both financially and personally. But we usually lack the money, or more honestly, we don’t have the information we need to manage our resources wisely. Our careers end up in frustration when our gains don’t match our goals.
And if every relationship was faithful and fulfilling, it would mean that your emotional and spiritual connections were always intact. But we all sometimes face conflicts with our families, our friends, our creative partners and even with God. It takes more than just a desire to improve these areas – it takes a commitment to get better.
That’s why I’m willing to bet that reading God and Gigs: Succeed as a Musician Without Sacrificing Your Faith , which will be available at all major bookstores on September 6th, 2016, can help you solve all three of these problems.
This book addresses these three areas in a way that every musician can relate to, whether you play on a church platform, on a club stage, or if perhaps you simply want to know what it takes to succeed in both worlds.
First, your connections – if your personal and business connections are intact and healthy, you’ll be emotionally and spiritually equipped to handle any obstacle that comes your way. In the book, you’ll learn strategies that will enhance your ability to prioritize the relationships that matter the most, and stay connected to the groups that will support you through thick and thin.
Secondly, your career – if you leverage your professional reputation and your preparation, you’ll find your way to better gigs, better opportunities, and better financial results. You’ll read time-tested truths from top-level musicians that have made a mark in the industry. Their advice will show you how to become a proficient and professionally respected performer in any genre.
Finally, your calling – true inspiration comes from knowing not just what you do, but why you do it. If you could tap into your true calling, every day, what could stop you from reaching your highest goals as a faith-centered artist? Nothing could. This book helps you re-connect with why you do what you do. If you read and apply the principles inside, there’s no reason why you can’t find yourself walking into the creative fulfillment that God would have you walk in.
On September 6th, 2016, both the paperback and eBook editions are officially available for purchase. If you have a love for God and for performance, but have experienced a tug-of-war between the two, purchasing and reading this book can help you solve all three of the most pressing issues in your musical career.
You don’t have to imagine a perfect situation.
Now is the perfect time to start creating one.
