Start Here

My personal story is I went from not having a clue about making money with music to leaving my job in just a few short years.

In short, I’ve walked the talk.

No, I’m not rich or famous, nor do I hold myself out as some great music marketing or music business guru. Instead, I’m just like you except I took my goals with music serious enough to research, plan a repeatable system, and execute that plan. I’ve since shown other musicians how to use my unique approach, and now I share my ideas with you on this web site.

It’s admittedly overwhelming to know where to start, so I’ve compiled this quick start guide to help find exactly what you want – quickly.

Warning! Don’t try to go through this all at once. Take it in small chunks. It’s all organized so you can go straight to the stuff you want to learn about first then come back later when you are ready for more. Take it one step at a time and enjoy the journey.

Where do you start when there are hundreds of pages to choose from?
