Hey, it’s David Andrew Wiebe.

So, at long last it’s been revealed…

Now you know ONE of the reasons I’ve been wanting to talk more about The Music Entrepreneur Code as of late. It’s because I’ve been working on the second edition of the book!

As for the other reason I’ve been wanting to talk more about The Music Entrepreneur Code? Well, that will have to wait…

In this episode, I wanted to give you a preview of the new book. Normally, this is where I would read you the introduction, which is what I’m going to be doing in one of the next couple of episodes.

But here, I wanted to share a little bit about what’s new with this edition. So, let’s get into it.

What Led to the Creation of The Music Entrepreneur Code – 2022 Edition (Now with More Ninja)

This post originally appeared on http://www.davidandrewwiebe.com/ on December 7, 2021.

Last year, I had the pleasure of sharing my best-selling, guitar-windmilling, cigar smoking, and whisky swilling The Music Entrepreneur Code with you.

And the feedback I got on the new book was phenomenal. Rocker status.

As I continued to share the work with readers and friends, though, I realized there was an opportunity for an encore performance.

Most if not all of what’s shared in the book is going to stand the test of time, like “Stairway to Heaven,” meaning it’s unlikely to go out of style like nu-metal shlock of the early 2000s.

Not to mention, in the book, principles were distilled down to their core essentials like Eric Clapton’s Unplugged. No fluff, no B.S. In that sense, revision would have been redundant, like the Beastie Boys’ deluxe edition of Check Your Head.

Here’s What’s New in The Music Entrepreneur Code – 2022 Edition (Now with More Ninja)

The most significant opportunity I recognized with the book was the importance of sharing my story.

As we all know, story creates connection. And I don’t say that to sound smart. Some of the greatest songwriters of all-time, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, and Paul Simon obviously knew this.

But with a new introduction centered on story and heart-based connection, I knew that the tactics and strategies discussed in the book would land the plane on smoother, gold-studded runways.

As with any other artist or creative, I’ve had many struggles (some would say that’s putting it mildly). And while struggling is ultimately optional, to get to that point in your development requires some deep intellectual digging (and usually several thousand dollars’ worth of courses). But that’s a whole other conversation. Remind me to waffle it out on another occasion.

With the latest edition of The Music Entrepreneur Code, I wanted to crack the code on creating intense relatability and instill an emotional connection, just as Elton John did with “Candle In The Wind.” I believe I have accomplished exactly that with the new introduction.

This isn’t all that’s available in the latest hard-rocking edition of The Music Entrepreneur Code, though. Here’s what else was changed:

  • More data and insights. Although some of the bigger questions will be left to the forthcoming follow-up, The Music Entrepreneur Companion Guide, the latest edition of The Music Entrepreneur Code features art- and science-based secrets to unlocking your inner musical star.
  • More opportunities. We’re getting ready to launch some done-for-you opportunities to earn an income from sharing the book, and we’re excited about what’s to come.
  • More ninja. Talking about revisions and updates is unsexy. So, I’m calling these changes “more ninja” instead. It’s more fun that way.
  • More tool and resource recommendations. One of the things readers loved about The Music Entrepreneur Code was how it pointed them in the direction of other great gear to help them on their Budokan journey. The latest edition of the book comes with even more.
