Stop the Distractions

These days we have so many distractions. The news, social media, movies, shows, etc. Once you understand this it’s pretty amazing how much you can actually achieve. The news is nothing but negativity. Im not saying that the issues aren’t important but if we were being honest we know the news doesn’t provide healthy dialogue. Thats achieved with your peers and family. The shows on tv are distracting you from your goals! I removed all streaming services a couple years ago and we are doing just fine. We are getting things done around the house. Such as making our own garden and improving the yard. We have more time to workout and stay in shape. We talk more with our kids and each other. The world is always going to be crazy and messed up. I prefer to focus on my goals and what I can control which is my own life. Once you focus on your goals and personal growth the world doesn’t seem so negative. Remember control what you can control! Thats your own life. Constantly worrying about stuff you see on the internet is toxic and just a plain waste of time! Have a blessed day!

Artist & Social media

I’ve been struggling with social media lately. I feel like its needed these days for artist to be successful but man its frustrating. Social media has become toxic and I hate using that word because its constantly used these days. Its also very annoying that you have to pay to reach your fans of your page. That is crazy to me honestly. I post to my page with over 3,000 fans and only like 20 even see it. Im not one to make excuses or complain but we need to figure something out forreal. I think its best to message your support directly. I have started to do this and it has worked pretty well. I have ideas on how to solve this issue.

  1. Network with other artist! Collaborate.
  2. Go directly to your fans. Im not saying to go beg a venue to play your music. I have never done that instead I go directly to the source. I ask a fan if they want me to perform and I show up with merch and my music. Also a bonus you dont have to take a pay cut!
  3. Message fans directly.
  4. Emails
  5. Drive around with your product! Hand out merch items
  6. Do free giveaways!
  7. Release music for free on your website and build your website audience.

Just a few ideas if you have any suggestions let me know!
