The Strategy Session
What You Will Learn
In my years of experience, I see aspiring musicians making the same mistakes again and again:
✅ Strategy: They don’t have a solid strategy.
✅ Mindset: Their attitude makes them more likely to freak out than rise to the challenge when something goes awry.
✅ Accountability: They don’t have a system to keep them accountable to their strategy.
In my new course, “The Strategy Session,” I show you exactly how to avoid these mistakes––and many others.
