E147: Invest In YOUR Creative: No One Else Will Until You Do First W/ Dave Swillum
Updated: Mar 9, 2022
Do you feel like you truly invest in your creative or business? That’s for you to answer but after all the hours, money, blood, sweat, and tears you better be investing in making your creative known. On todays episode I speak to some changes in my actions I’ve made to invest more in my own personal music to give it the chance I feel it deserves as well as some strategies and thought processes from some others pursuing their passions. It’s not worth putting in all that effort to get to the 5 yard line and not get the touch down (sorry for the bad sports reference) but for real. Today lets talk about getting past some self limiting beliefs behind NOT properly investing in our creative and some ways we can do it in any budget. Invest in your creative! No one else will until you do first.
