    So I've been on this forum for about 2 years and since i first joined the idea of living life on your own terms , being in control of your financial future and being in control of your life had me invested.

    I dove head first into the pool of business knowledge . Reading every book , listening to every podcast, watching every youtube video i could find on entrepreneurship .

    I can say that i made sure to apply everything I learned and made sure to execute as best as i could but for the most part I rarely came up with t results i wanted .
    (but thats how things go right ?)

    I started getting discouraged and getting into self doubt and loathing about a year or so ago .

    But thankfully I'm no quitter and i never let it the darkness consume me .

    Around this time i decided to quit my well paying job at first to pursue my entrepreneurial journey fully . But as soon as the bills showed up for next month (along with discouraging words from family members) I rushed to find the next job that would hire me .

    And THANKFULLY this job was a very bad job . It was a restaurant job that was poorly maintained and managed by kids my age haha . I disliked every moment of it . It was all gossip , constant customer complaints and people treating the job like a hangout spot . Now as a young person it was "fun" to feel like I had a "cool" relaxed job. But as a entrepreneurial minded person who wanted to see the store run the best it could I was about to pull my hair out at the lack of organization and work ethic of the employees .

    Needless to say I kept working on my entrepreneurial ventures throughout the whole time . 1. Because the job barely payed enough to keep the lights on and 2. because the job was another sign that i needed to run my own show .

    About a week or 2 ago I was fired from this job and i was so excited ! I knew this was my time to really show my stuff and really focus on my business . And this time my own self doubt and relatives wont stand in my way . And so far it's been just what i needed !

    I've made enough to pay my bills for this month and today i made about $800 which will go to covering my bills for next month .

    Im currently working on focusing on keeping my pipeline full of opportunities . It's been a bit of a struggle keeping myself disciplined but im more happy and feel more free and excited than i ever have felt.

    I go through days of uncertainty and feeling like i've made the wrong decision . lack of money sometimes makes me feel less than . Money either goes towards bills or reinvesting into my business . But i understand thats apart of the process .

    My first goal is to generate $2k a month consistently and I believe i can achieve this in no time .

    ^ this please

    I got laid off from my dream job and started my self-employment thing, so I definitely appreciate the Chinese concept of crisis having two meanings.

    I had 6 months of ui to write my name across the sky or go back to working for assholes. It helped me start selling right away to have that doomsday clock in my face.

    What are you going to sell?

    Music markets it self, if you are ''talented'' then it will sell to the masses.

    With the current mainstream music now I don't think its to hard to stand out..

    Now you don't even need to be talented to be successful in the music industry. If you look up the latest rappers that are popular its total garbage

    This is exactly what im talking about . Its based on politics . Art is subjective . Plus you're dealing with people being emotionally attached to a product that effected their lives directly . Old heads never like the kids music , and kids never respect old heads because they dont get it . And you have to deal with all this . Along with egos , cheaters , and artists that believe they are to good to pay and a slue of other nonsense .

    Congrats on getting fired, ha!

    Be sure to differentiate between building a business or just hustling. They both have their place, just make sure you know which one you are working on.

    Link us up to something you are working on!

    but on the real homie naw im saiyan,

    The only way you can blowup/get famous is if you start touring and have your own shows.

    Call up a venue where they have concerts/small shows and get your own event running, pretty easy.

    As a creative myself, I can totally relate to earning money from your craft. All the best with it!

    That's the old way of doing things... with the internet, you no longer need to do open mics gigs or tour... there are a few platforms out there that cater to a market that's hungry for good tunes. (Not to mention that not every music genre is suitable for live performances. Most are, but a few aren't at all.)

    Ok so heres my journey so far

    After my firing I've been making moves .

    1. Sold enough beatz to pay bills , survive , and take my first trip out of state
    2. Found a few artists that i can build with who have budding movements
    3. Have been creating new stuff with different artists face to face
    4. Have gotten connects with people in a professional recording studio
    5. Am releasing a drum kit (which im still perfecting)
    6. Have realsed a instrumental project (which i already sold a beat off of)
    7. Have been in conversations with people with actual business and music experience working to set up and operate my LLC. and start working and moving like a actually business
    8. Have been building relationships with people and am seeing how beautiful and supportive people are when the love and respect is mutual
