Beginning Your Music Career? No More Procrastination!

Humans are masters at procrastination, especially when it comes to taking on a difficult task. As we all know, starting a music career – much like any creative endeavor – can be synonymous with the word “difficult.” You’re building a platform from zero, with no clear indication of how long it will take, or what challenges lie on the road ahead. Scary stuff!

Not only is procrastination a great way to not accomplish your goals; it’s harmfulA 2013 study from Psychological Science shows that procrastinators “end up suffering more and performing worse” than their counterparts.

Musicians: Watch Out for These Bandmate Red Flags

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and it’s as good a time as any to be on the lookout for red flags.

However, we’re not focusing on red flags in a romantic partner. Instead, let’s focus on what traits to look for — and perhaps avoid — in a musical or business collaborator.

I took to the Muze blog to share some of my favorite bandmate red flags. However, these can also apply to just about any professional relationship. Dive in, and let me know if I missed anything!

The show is an opportunity for Adam to open up about his challenges navigating Tourette Syndrome, ADD, learning disabilities, countless legal issues, and many family conflicts — and how he has emerged strong and successful.
