“Follow your passion” is bad advice?

January 11, 2018

 We all want the same things out of our work: freedom, independence, and a sense that we're utlizing our talents and abilities. 

These days we're bombarded with the advice to 'follow your passion' and everything will work out. 

But is this the way the world really works? Is following your passion likely to pay off in success? 

There's more to it than that.

Finding success isn't just about following your passion... it's about becmoing so good they can't ignore you.

Are You Willing To Suck?

December 22, 2017

It’s kind of ironic, but when I look back at my own life and those around me who are successful, there’s one common thread:

The willingness to suck and still put yourself out there. 

So many of us are keeping every idea… and every song… and every mix to ourselves, just tweaking forever and waiting until it’s “perfect” or “good enough” to share. 

Yet having the guts to step out in all your sucky glory is the one thing that will propel you forward.
