No need to be a broken record and convince you of something that's already been drilled deep into your musicpreneur mind.
After all, you probably already KNOW that burnout is the number one thing that will stop you from creating the music career of your dreams.
You probably also know that building a music career means playing the long-game, and burning out from overworking will only slow you down.
Even if you're lucky enough to have a handle on managing your time & music projects,
crafting a life and music career with intention will:
Perhaps in your most frustrated moments, you've made a commitment to start.
The new year rolled around and you decided - this is it! I am going to finally commit to a wellness routine. Wake up at 6am to meditate? Sure let's give it a shot!
If you're super committed, maybe you even scheduled out every second of your day in your calendar, hoping that will finally get you to really stick to your routine & to-do list.
But even with the best intentions, most motivated musicians don't follow through. They can't find a way to make a routine work for them, to actually reduce stress and get more done once and for all. They remain frustrated and tired while other artists seem to move right along, making strides in their career, seemingly without any roadblocks or anxiety.
The wellness routines they try, fad self-care tips, and attempts to manage their schedule, don't actually fit into the busy & sometimes unpredictable lifestyle of a musician.
They fall victim to believing that nothing will work for them - their life is just too complicated to create any sort of stability, and get out of a place of chronic stress.
As an already busy musician who's constantly writing, gigging, recording, and making even working a day job to pay the bills, you literally can't afford to stay in a place of constant stress.
The moment you give up and accept stress as your reality forever, the closer you are to burning out.
And when that happens? Consider yourself down for the count for a while...long enough to watch others gain momentum while you watch with jealousy from the sidelines.
The only way to truly get ahead faster is to avoid burnout entirely. To find a way to live your life that works for YOU. That gives you your time, energy, and happiness back.
Most artists out there are overworking themselves to their breaking point, where they'll either give up or take a long break, halting their progress and setting them back years.
But you have the opportunity to get ahead - to create a sustainable, long lasting music career.
That is...if you don't make the same mistakes that have led other fellow artists to burnout.
We all have the same amount of time in a day, but how we choose to spend it is what makes a difference. This includes making sure we are spending time on tasks that actually move us forward instead of just keep us busy, and that we aren't spending time on things draining our energy and happiness.
Step into this belief instead: "I have an abundance of time."
How does it feel to know that everything will get done, with time leftover?
It's time to take the steps to create that time in your schedule, and believe that this is a possibility for you.
"I'll just wait until I have X amount of followers or fans until I make moves. There's no point right now..."
If you don't believe in yourself, why would anybody else?
Don't wait until you have outside validation in the form of fans or streams to do something amazing for yourself and your music career.
I am good enough, I am unique, and my music makes an impact on this world.
Say that until you really feel it, and know that if you believe enough in yourself to invest and make positive changes in your career and your life, everyone around you will too. It comes first from within.
Whether it's "recording new music" or any other set of things you could be doing that take up your time and attention.
Those things are important, yea. After-all sharing your music is an integral part of growing your career.
But girl, if you're going to focus on those projects while your exhaustion grows and you loose it when small setbacks get in the way... you are NOT running the show in a way that best serves you, the projects, and others around you.
"I am my number one priority ALWAYS. Work and other obligations come second to my wellbeing"
Because if you are not your badass best self, how are you supposed to get everything done like a queen?
Can't give up your full-time job because you need the money?
Can't afford massages every week to relax?
No problem. You can still do this. Self-care and wellness is NOT only for the $rich.
However - challenge yourself to ditch this belief anyway, because it's not going to serve you.
You are NOT just a "broke musician" or a "starving artist."
You have an abundance of time, money, and freedom, and people love you pay you for your music.
Much better, right? If you belief you're broke & you're gonna stay broke - you will. Imagine what would happen though, if you could get your time back, and be able to choose to do only opportunities that pay you what you are worth (and easily, because they are constantly coming to you). This is your new reality, this is your new belief.
Even though the music industry is a MASSIVE and continually growing one, there's still a way for you to find success as a musician.
Some musicians will create a successful music career, while many others fizzle out.
And the main reason for this, as you've likely seen by now, is the difference between operating from a place of confidence and ease, and overworking yourself to your demise.
But as long as you can find that balance, you can step into your dream artist career.
One that allows you to achieve more freedom, create more income and make an impact on others through your music.
The key ingredient to all of this is crafting a life and wellness routine that actually works for you and gets you to a place of low-stress,
And with your permission, that's what I'd LOVE to show you how to create.
I've taken the exact system I've used with my high-level 1:1 clients to help them thrive in their music career without the burden of stress and overwhelm, and channeled it into a comprehensive, adaptable program that teaches you the how you can take these key principles and execute them in your unique life.
Yes, you'll learn the tools do deal with stress and set goals.

You'll have step-by-step guidance for how to project plan your goals and be well on your way to accomplishing them by the time the program is over.
The end result: A roadmap to reach your specific goal, and a schedule & wellness routine that you can actually stick to, because it fits with your life & interests.
This course is not going to take over your life just to get through it. No, in fact it'll help you get hours back in your day and get more done.

You won't leave this program without a major boost in confidence and the tools to overcome that negative nancy voice in your head, spewing self-doubt. I firmly believe even if you have the tools to reach your goal, you need to support your mindset through it too, and that's what we do in this course.
In our first module, The Life Audit, you’ll gain clarity on your intentions & desires moving forward in your music career, what you would like to accomplish by the end of the course.
You'll get clear on what your life looks like now and more importantly, what you want your life to look like. This is the foundation to to implement a wellness routine, strategize your goals, and master your time management to make it all happen. And while it might not all look the same when you're done with the course, this is your first step to creating the life you want to live.
Now that you have your foundation, it's time to start building out your wellness routine. We start with this intentionally - so when stress hits, you have tools to fall back on from the get-go. You'll decide what habits and activities serve and excite you, learn exercises you can do in acute moments of stress, and how to implement and stick to it all.
Once it’s created, you'll have a strategy for implementing it in a way that allows you to actually stick to it. By the end of this module, you’ll be equipped with the tools you need to handle stress, and more importantly, a routine that supports you based on YOUR needs, interests, and life.
It's time to set some goals! Here, you'll get we’re going to get clear on what it is you want to accomplish, including goals for your music career, and your life. Knowing what you’re working towards will help you to be unwaveringly sure about what you want your time and energy to be going to, and can help to clear out the clutter and overwhelm that sometimes tries to sneak in.
After those goals are set, you'll come out with a clear and streamlined plan to reach them, one that you can put into action with confidence immediately.
In this module you'll ditch the excuse that "you just don't have enough time" once and for all, because you'll learn how to master time management, get more hours back in your day, and create & stick to a schedule that helps you be productive without suppressing your creative, spontaneous self. Now that you have your wellness routine, and goals, we'll bring it all together with our calendar-party that will leave you feeling clear-headed & ready to go each day.
Now that you've gained immense clarity on your goals, and are working on a roadmap to reach them, all while maintaining your wellness routine because you now have TIME to do it all, it's time to tackle the one thing that can creep in and still hold you back...your mindset.
Here you'll deal with that negative voice in your head telling you you're too old, not good enough, or whatever it is that's holding you back. Leave your limiting beliefs behind once and for all so you can step into success.
What people asked before signing up for From Stressed to Success...
No biggie at all! This course is made for musicians and music industry professionals at all levels. Whether you're full-time, or just starting out while working a full-time job in another industry to support yourself, From Stressed to Success will help you set goals, de-stress, and better manage your schedule & commitments. This is an all inclusive course!
From Stressed to Success is intentionally crafted to take you through a journey that not only empowers your music career and helps you get clear on what you are setting out to accomplish, but also considers YOU and your wellness. I truly believe that if you do not look at stress levels, sleep, and general wellbeing, and how it's affecting you, you're holding yourself back from success. The reason for this is because YOU'RE A HUMAN. You have emotions, you have a life outside of your music career. How you support yourself holistically will influence how you show up in your career, and therefore how successful you are.
The course work should only take you about 1-2 hours per week to complete, including watching the videos and completing the exercises. The best part about the course is that it will teach you how to be more efficient with you time, so while you need to spend a few hours doing the work, you'll get that time back in other priceless ways - by working smarter, not harder, and by mastering time management.
The course is self-paced, and you get all the modules & resources upfront. However, you will also get weekly emails guiding you through which module you should tackle each week & how to pace it out.
