What in the World…

by | Apr 10, 2024 | News

I’m going to say something very difficult for me to say:

I’m going through tough financial times, and I have been since January.

I know I’m not the only one. But as someone who laughed at recessions and chose not to participate, this feels like a swift kick in the pants.

To add insult to injury, my grandfather recently passed away, and that still falls under the category of fresh, open wounds.

It’s become unbearable, so I’m breaking the silence.

It’s not like I’ve given up. Every day I wake up to do something to better my situation. I’ve been reaching out to past collaborators and clients, applying to remote work, cold calling, app testing, micro work, publishing to Medium, setting up sales funnels, and putting things up for sale.

Maybe it’s not the worst thing in the world, but at this rate, I may end up selling most things I own, save for a couple of guitars.

I believe in giving, and I’ve even been giving of myself in every dimension – money, time, and energy.

But the dam is not breaking.

Though I’m choosing not to dwell on it, I’ve had the rug pulled out from under me more times than I can count this year.

Naturally, this has impacted my ability to continue with the podcast in the desired capacity, though I’ve been doing everything I can to secure a sponsor.

Friends, I will keep chiseling away at this boulder, but I don’t know what it’s going to take or for how long.

So, I’m doing something else that I rarely do (even though I should maybe do it more):

I’m asking for your help.

Ways You Can Support Me

Yes, all the following items truly help!

Things to Come

I’ve been working on a “Going Out Of Business Sale” over at Content Marketing Musician. It’s not ready yet, but once it’s available, you’ll be able to get ALL my music career resources for a very nominal fee.

I’m also working on making my future books available for pre-order ASAP.

What Else Can I Create for You?

Is there something else of interest to you that I can create that you would buy? Let me know what that is, and I’ll get right on it.
