Today I’m talking about possibly THE most impactful piece of advice I could give you on your music production journey.
It’s a topic that is incredibly important, and one of the biggest ways to accelerate your progress as a music producer.
…In fact, I’d go as far as to say that it’s nearly impossible to succeed without this ingredient.
This topic is about finding people to work with who have complementary skill sets, perspectives, and ways of thinking so that you can make meaningful steps towards the success that you want.
But it’s also about the traps and tricks that our minds play on us – the fear that we’re a failure because we reach out and ask for help.
And this is something I’ve noticed that holds people back across all areas of music production and creativity.
Something that actually stops them from seeking out and working with someone who may have the skills or knowledge that complement their own.
And maybe you can relate to this.
It might seem obvious, but if you are NOT working with others at every step of your journey, then chances are that you are living with a fear or a story that is keeping you trapped.
Maybe you feel you are missing a bunch of different skills that you need and that’s holding you back.
Maybe you are a perfectionist or you find yourself distracted a lot and just can’t seem to get over the line with your tracks.
Or maybe you are sitting on a pile of music and haven’t quite managed to get the courage up to get it out into the world.
If you are trying to do everything yourself because you’re stuck in your own head then this episode is for you.
Asking for help is not a weakness. It is a strength. And it is the route that unquestionably will maximize your individual chances of success.
So let’s dive in…
- How to maximise your chances of success at every step.
- “if you try and catch two rabbits at once, you’ll end up catching none”.
- Why all successful people have a team around them.
