Rock Star Rewind: Windows of Opportunity (September 2019)

Rock Star Rewind March 2019 --Blooming Prejippie Zine

There’s plenty to go around…

The more we do, the more we realize that opportunities to spread our message and our music are literally everywhere! And that we are only limited by the amount of energy and effort that we decide to put into tapping into—or even creating—the opportunities for what we want to do.

Managing our time and expectations….

Working on finding/making opportunities has awakened to the fact that we must be constantly working to meet three levels of engagement. We use our PAST to tally our progress, to celebrate wins, and to chronicle our experiences. (That’s part of the purpose this monthly newsletter serves.) We use the FUTURE to prospect our grand vision and to set goals based on where we want to be. But we are firmly in the PRESENT to continue to put out content for all our platforms (blog, podcast, and YouTube), as well as keep songs being written, recorded, and distributed; all while pitching yet other songs for placement opportunities. We must also drop seeds into that networking ground, wherever the opportunity presents itself (through our Facebook groups, etc.). This last activity is working squarely in the PRESENT, but toward a future harvest. Over these last three years, we have figured out what to do and right about now, it’s about keeping all those balls in the air, while remembering to breathe and enjoy each level that we grow up and over and onto the next level.

Growth brings the need to prune…

We have been thankful that some of those partnerships have been paying off. In this last month, our song, “Touch Me, Fill Me,” has been included on Alt-Bae’s 2019 Compilation CD . (This started out as an inquiry we sent out nearly 6 months ago that took a while to take root, but did.) Right before that, though, our songs “Tell Me What You Want” and “I’m a Chameleon” were picked up by Marketing Melodies, an Australian company, for play on playlists for stores and restaurants. (Again, we are constantly pitching now and this one landed somewhere along the line.)

And while we are very excited about each new opportunity that takes root, we are having to look at what we have planned to do in upcoming months and figure out how to work smart—and not hard. Again, we want to enjoy the process, while still getting the important work done, so we have to strategize how to keep all three levels of commitment in rotation. What I am really trying to say is that Blog-vember is coming sooner than I think we realized and to maintain our sanity—with those 3 posts a day (video, podcast, and blog post)—that’s 90 posts in 30 days!—we will need to figure out a batching system that works even better than what we used last year. I think we can do it, but I need to start NOW with our plans/ideas/videos, etc.

The Bottom Line….

We’re having a hell of a time, even with all the ruckus and we are having the time of our lives and can’t imagine doing anything better. And we’re so happy to have you along. If you’d like to REALLY like to hang out, think about joining one of our Facebook Groups….


Sadly, still languishing….
