Why Bother with Publishing
Publishing is where the business happens. With the advent of new technology the Apps have mastered revenue raising. When they made a commitment to create a viable business model they also agreed to implement the publisher payment systems. This part of Publishing is yet to be perfected or completed to a level that is fair. The next few years directing revenue to the publisher correctly will become an important issue. Control your song Masters and know your Publishing rights. Cents today turns into dollars for your legacy.

I Like To Move It
Today nothing is going to plan so I posted a rough home cut of one of my songs. I was wrestling with the idea i should only post polished performances. Today i decided to move it and rescue the day from going backwards.
October 28, 2020
This week I will be working around collaboration will move the needle. I can try to do too much myself, reducing the compound effect of collaboration. Partnerships are key to getting Art to become a viable offer.

This podcast today is the beginning of me documenting my 300 day Journey In Sound... It will be called the 300 Series. Podcast number 1. I will present each episode as Season 2 episode 3001 (series 300 episode 1 and so on). Hopefully the machines can handle the reference points. Let us begin!
October 15, 2020
Simplify the Journey
Today I culled all the info I have accessed in the past few years and was surprised at how far I had to travel to focus on what is next to move forward. Clearing out the white noise and simplify a life of music.

September 14, 2020
Culling to Focus
Now the Book has been completed i decided to Map out a path for the next thing! I ended up white boarding my one thing and I culled 80% of what I do now to keep the dream alive. With this fire sale mentality i could keep moving without many of the things i loved just last week. Options that did not seem important until I changed my focus... simplified what is important. Culling is important if you are to keep growing!
September 7, 2020

Hacks & Behaviour
Chasing the immediate spike in attention will damage your long term growth in Music. Technology is a tool to exploit your creative efforts. Music growth is about Relationships. Look for behaviours that support long term relationships not hacks to look clever.
July 22, 2020
Who know who?
Do you know the name of at least 100 people in your industry that can help you on your journey?

Attention AMPED Book
A quick chat about the Attention Cycle we will share inside the upcoming launch of the FREE Book 'AMPED'. I hope you are well.
July 17, 2020
One of the best forms of reward is Access. Doing work for FREE is not about exploitation... FREE work for a level 10 opportunity will lead to Access!
July 14, 2020
Is tenacity being a workaholic or is it being patient? To act when the opportunity arises! Is the opportunity offering you high level access or is a low level time waster? Make sure your effort isn't wasted on the wrong opportunity.
July 13, 2020
They Win With Teams
Have you had the realisation that all the Wins you see online, by individuals; is actually built by teams! How does all this relate to you?
July 12, 2020
Wasting Money Before PLAY
Are you spending money on silly ways to gain attention? Are you investing time into new relationships to grow? One is short term gain and the other is long term stability.
July 9, 2020
Who are you speaking too?
Are you speaking with the right people? Spending time talking to people involved in your journey will improve your mental well being and help feed the desire!

Push To Partner
Always look to push forward and locate new partners. Momentum is key to keeping the dream alive and new partners give you the energy, the space and the platform to grow in a new way!
June 16, 2020
I was looking at how the new and old can be brought together to move forward... A hybrid respecting those who blazed a pathway and the people i will work together with in the future. The new ways offer new opportunity but the old ways offer experience and relationships thriving on a common goal.
June 12, 2020
Power of Communities
Tribes, Fans, Peers... Communities! We are sitting at a cross roads of technology. I feel Community Power online is now looking similar to how Facebook was when they Boomed 2012-2015... I think the time is now 2019 - 2025 for online Community power to be expressed. No more easy market money, actual consumer lead behaviour!
June 11, 2020
Using information to attract your dream clients but holding back the Trick until they commit to the process... Pay!

Partnerships are no longer the final step in a business plan. I discovered in the past few years that online growth requires partnerships to be developed first. It can be difficult but as you grow use resources to build partnerships... I do this but not enough yet!

May 26, 2020
Stopping & Speeding
Some people worry about stopping... hitting a wall. Some people have problems with speeding through too many options. I struggle with both at times... Focus on the one thing to maintain momentum and then use variety in your downtime to keep healthy pacing along the journey.

Emptying The Brain
Spending time emptying the brain speaking with a neutral person helps regain focus to move forward. Do you have a way of making sure you get to brain dump ideas when the brain is too full or progress has stalled? Sometimes paper and pencil or a white board is not enough... A good solid training chat to a neutral person will help!

During lockdown I have discovered a few layers of boring! Bored lazy, bored busy & bored focused.
April 29, 2020
If you are searching for something new or different... remember to look for the value of the dollar and if you can access a distribution network and you can gain access to create an arbitrage through attention, have clear motivations and enjoy building partnerships to scale the opportunity. There is value in a product or service that excels using New Media... You create stories attracting attention, serving your motives and attracting partnerships to scale the revenue over time. Don't waste time worshipping Billionaires, locate their distribution networks that serve your motivations and actually build value on your single dollar of return!

Why Build a Music Revolution?
I built ideas selfishly to solve my problems of making music a permanent part of my life... I had to stop playing to create it... sounds stupid... No music to play more music! I don't how I did it but I have built 'The Muso Play Catalogue' www.musoplay.com My hope is my selfishness will lead to a give for you the Singer Songwriter... lost on your journey in Sound!

Sorry I Will Fix It
I have been living in a balanced energy environment to manage emotions with 6 people in my home... Sadly my podcasts and presentations has suffered because I did not observe myself... Turn on professionally regardless of my environment...
April 17, 2020
I wouldn’t consider looking backwards a normal act of progress but today I feel a desire to check the journey so far. An annual look back or a minute or two a day reminds me that my competition is within me, myself; yesterday! While speaking here these thoughts flowed through my mind. The money, the time, the experiences, the strengths, the weaknesses, the people and the growth all topped off with the icing of life. I am stoked to be alive and still breathing. I hope this podcast finds you well.
April 17, 2020
I surrendered a little time with my girls to learn a little tonight and then I located my errors. In my bricks and mortar I would have to hire or fire. In my online business I have to create or discard what is needed to keep my message clear and simple for the customer. My proud work completed yesterday was culled tonight when I accidentally noticed my message was wrong. A little filming session tomorrow morning and the offer will suit my customer and attract my peers... The final error will be removed!
April 15, 2020
Looking at the environment influencing my motivation. Discovering the importance of energy to improve my New Media communication. I have a responsibility to manage my personal environment to maintain great energy. Can I involve people to share the moment? Will I share the responsibility? Can I move away from control? Can you divide your business core product into separate offers for each month of the year. Each month is a single part of the core product. Can the Client choose to use the One Thing each month OR purchase the Core Product and become involved in the whole product/Service from day 1.
April 13, 2020
How can I simplify the process for my Peers and people to access greater value? I was concerned with being prolific creating products. I discovered the product & service can be high value and simple... the best! My prolific behaviour can be satisfied through delivering regular content throughout my New Media. Thank you for listening to my discovery.
April 12, 2020
Dreams & Iterations to Desire
Too much time spent perfecting the Offer will risk failure. Today I discovered I need to get out and pursue the audiences and places where my dream customer and dream peer are living. They are searching for a new path... I can help from FREE to Paid. I exercised these ideas last night and the first 2 people I served opted into my business. DESIRE is born!

Will it work?
Hanging out with my youngest daughter sharing the work of her big life. The best part of lock down is focusing on one thing at a time so I get unstuck. It seems there are people busy making things harder. Focus to deal with the complexity or find someone to share the simple moments. Thanks Roxy for sharing today!
April 8, 2020
Sadly forgetting to post my Podcast is not really turning up but today I had to be different. Dealing with energy levels in lockdown is best spent focusing on one thing at a time. Directly focusing on the Now will lift my energy.
April 8, 2020
After Midnight I discuss the process so far and the challenges to move forward with the real work. The work is the challenge to locate the audience to serve over the next 30 days. A reluctant hero committing to a make or break goal for the business of Music.

Compassion NOT Conspiracy.
What is different in challenging times? I am noticing the more I know thyself the easier it is to see people’s motives, their cracks, their reality... their true self. These lyrics “wherever I lay my hat that’s my home...” have a new meaning in challenging times. Beware the weakened mind... This is a time for compassion & commerce... NOT Conspiracy!

1st World Gratitude
In times of change... 1: For all the teachers guiding my children while they are not with me. Thank you. It is okay if they get sick. They have love, good health and have hygiene and good sanitation. We are fortunate to live in Australia. 2: to the Doctors & Nurses (all healer by hand) you will be over worked, at risk and under appreciated until we risk loosing you. Thank you for your service when people are sick and afraid. 3: to the believers you have exercised faith throughout your life, now you know it’s strength. The faith muscle is valuable protection from fear. 4: to Business people it is now clear that the answer to stability is to encourage people to take up your offer and create a different path through the hysteria. We are counting on you to double down on your strengths to keep the economy rolling. 5: to the Musicians. Keep playing the music. To my wife and 4 girls... how lucky we are to have each other! To The Great Life!

Showtime is not about the Money
Chasing the Music Career requires a focus on the promotional side... the cashflow. Musicians are human beings and we can get stuck on the external issue of making a weekly cashflow income. This can stall a career progress. Concentrating on 'The Show' will feed the internal journey of the Musician. An internal journey fully expressed will give permission to your Fans to express their internal journey during 'The Show'...WTF? Life can have too much thinking. Fans come to see your show to stop thinking. If Your focus is 'The Show' you stop thinking and channel the energy required to perform. If the Fans see you open up on stage they stop thinking, forget their worries and the social connection improves the Music Industry and the world in that moment! Yes you require income but if your focus is just Money your show will be flat! Think about how many people you serve in your Journey of Sound then the money will look after you!
