I have been having a blast being interviewed on many podcasts recently. Here is part 2 of a 3-part series. This one comes from the Music Business Facts Podcast down under in one of my favorite places to visit – Australia.
This Podcast was wonderful for a few reasons:
1. I was interviewed by a professional musician and educator Rodney Holder. Rodney has a bachelors degree in communication & media production and has been teaching music business studies at tafe college since 1999. his career in the music industry began back in 1987- Initially as a drummer and co manager of my psychedelic metal band Alchemist. He released numerous internationally acclaimed albums, toured Australia countless times, and performed at some of the world’s biggest metal festivals, sharing the bills with the likes of Iron Maiden, Slayer, Motorhead, Judas Priest, and Kiss. He currently teaches a Diploma of music business at The Southbank Institute of Technology in Brisbane.
2. We talked about the best books & Online resources – The 4-hour work week by Tim Ferris, and Seth Godin’s – Linchpin - listen in for the others!) and online resources (Lessdoing) to share and we had a candid conversation about the power of outsourcing and why it is critical to do it in today’s crazy email overwhelmed world.
3. There’s a fabulous question at the end about having it all to do over again and he told me that my answer was the best of all of the answers he has ever received. I got honest about our propensity to STRUGGLE instead of be in powerful flow.
I also said some dirty words in AUS that my North American friends won’t find dirty at all AND I reiterate that my book CrowdStart will be out June 20th! (if it kills me!)
Thank you to Rodney for a fabulous time!
Here’s to your success!
