Thought I'd share this recent post with you guys. It's short and sweet.

Let me ask you something: Do you want to be the best?

I don't mean like Highlander--you won't have to decapitate anyone. But do you want to be in the top 5% of the industry? The people who get called to work on area tours and the Cirque Du Soleil?

To get to that level, you've got to be good; you've got to be better than good. To be better than good, you've got to be out there working the field, mastering your craft. And the only way you can be out there mastering your craft is if you have a steady stream of jobs and clients.

You have to have experience in order to get the work that will give you the experience you need to get work. It's a Catch-22.

Fortunately, you don't have to solve the puzzle alone. You can join me and 29 focused peers who are out there figuring out what works (and what doesn't) in the pro audio world, and openly sharing their experience.

Try out Pro Audio Business Blueprint for 30 days free and start paving your way into the top 5% of the industry.

One of the key lessons I've learned on the way to becoming a successful sound engineer is: Be Unstoppable.

It's more important than any technical training or piece of gear, and it is one of five lessons we will cover in depth in Pro Audio Business Blueprint (only 17 spots left!).

Did you know that you can try Pro Audio Business Blueprint for 30 days, for free?

I know it can feel strange and scary to invest in yourself and your business, especially if you've never done it before, which is why I want you to give my program a test run before you commit. Even if you decide not to complete the entire six months, you will still get valuable information out of the time you do spend with us, and it will help you improve your life.

Nice, I added it.
Podcast sounds good. I'll listen to it on the way home.
I just met a guy who designs operating tables. Would that connection help you get more design business?

NEW POST!
Since I started Sound Design Live 4 years ago I have asked over 100 sound engineers to answer this question: What is your greatest challenge in growing your career?

What I discovered is that the same answers come up over and over again and I’ve decided to do something about it.

Today I’m launching a new program that is a response to those biggest challenges.
