D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind: From here to there… (December 2021)




THIS is the journey...

Sometimes it’s hard to reconcile all these different parts of this path that we’re on. And we’ve gotten into a habit of CONSTANTLY hustling, but, TRULY, keeping up THIS particular pace is not our goal. Our goal is to start a fire that will be self-sustaining; it’s just that we’ve got to throw EVERYTHING at it to give a great start. So, hopefully, this artist mentoring program process is what will throw the right kind of gasoline onto the music portion of our octopus-tentacled enterprises. At least, that’s our goal. But the trick is to get from here to there. That’s what’s happening now.

Partnership...

— It was so nice to talk to Bruce last night about how I was feeling about the artist mentoring program. 😊 I shared my frustration and my struggles and he shared some of his own ALONG with some of what he has LIKED about what we’re going through. So, when we got on the call, it was SO much easier to be a unified force. It was REALLY nice to divide and conquer. And we got it all done. —And, as Bruce mentioned, it was nice that this guy stayed on the call WELL over what was allotted for this session and he set quite a few things up for us. He also gave us some feedback on how our ads were performing—which he said was good—and ALL of THAT helped me feel better about this entire enterprise.

Figuring out what we want from it

In fact, we decided that we’re going to stop TRYING to make it something that it’s NOT and, instead, try to bend the interaction that we SHOULD be doing—but haven’t REALLY started yet—to be more like what is authentic to us as artists. –And so far, the merch is NOT flying off the shelf, but we have quite a line of folks who have signed up to hear more about our music…. 😬🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾 –THAT sounds like a way for us to get the MOST out of this program WHILE STILL retaining who we are naturally, so that’s a win-win. 🥳👏🏾😬🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾 But it’s nice to be on that journey now, even though it really is hard work to meet these requirements so quickly. But…..IF we’re going to get our money’s worth, THIS is what needs to be done…. and BEFORE the time of this program is up…. Which is JUST in time for the hustle and bustle of the holidays. 🙄
