My goal with the Profitable Musician Summit 2019 is to eradicate the starving artist paradigm for good. I realize this is not an easy task. That’s why I not only brought in Music Industry Experts this year, but I also tapped some creative-friendly experts in the financial space.

Our mantra for the 2019 Profitable Musician Summit is “Get smart, get profitable, get back to making music.”

My partner in this summit venture, Steve Palfreyman of the Music Launch Co, and I want to make this whole “money” thing less of an enigma and more intuitive and systematized so you can get back to the best part of your career – making music.

To that end, we chose 33 phenomenal speakers. To join us for the summit, register for free at this link.

This episode gives you a sample of 5 of my favorite sessions from some Music Industry heavyweights.

In his session he shares his strategies for how to fill your local shows, conquer the college market and budget for your next release with his 50/50 rule.

Along those lines, in his summit session he explains how the “pay to play” venue model works and how not to get caught up in that trap.
