Happy New Year to you!
For me and perhaps you, a brand new year is a marker impressing upon us to continue making positive changes in our lives.
With the craziness of the pandemic continuing to rage, it may be especially difficult to see 2022 as some sort of refreshing start, but for all of our sakes, let’s make 2022 better than 2021.
For me, 2022 will see the selling of my house now that my oldest is on his own and my younger son is soon to be. I haven’t quite decided exactly where I’ll be next but I’m looking forward to the adventure.
The new year will also provide an the oppoprtunity to expand my online business beyond music. I’ll never stop writing and producing interesting music and video. As a matter of fact, Richie Beirach and I are crafting something new right now and I’m producing new music-related video content almost daily, making that available to both new subscribers and my growing TikTok followers.
But I want to reach a broader audience. I really enjoy certain aspects of business, so I’m branching out with some interesting new projects making good use of my business skills learned through decades in the trechnes of New York corporate life.
One example is my Musicians Money Mastery course that recently launched. Last month I wrote an add-on to the course which is a 15-page eBook called simply, How to Negotiate.
I wrote this specifically for people who are uncomfortable with the idea of negotiating. They run that perfect justification in their head that tells them it’s okay that they didn’t ask for more or ask to pay less. In the back of their mind, however, they secretly wish they were comfortable and skilled negotiators!

Maybe it is a new start for you to feel empowered and comfortable with negotiatiation so that life starts costing you less and getting you more! Download the book while it’s still available for free.
I’ll leave you with three thoughts that I hope will inspire some of your decisions as you procede into 2022:
- Find the courage to venture outside of your current comfort zone. Pick those opportunities well.
- Declare the end of doing the same things over and over expecting different results. And that includes how you practice and play your instrument!
- Consider the valuable energy wasted over resisting change. What are you missing while you spend time and energy fighting change rather than being open to embracing the opportunities it may bring to you?
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
