What is the significance of the information age?
How does it change things for artists?
Why are creativity and entrepreneurship more important than ever before?
In this episode of the podcast, I decided to read a section from my new eBook, The New Music Industry: Adapting, Growing, and Thriving in The Information Age.
I’ve talked about the importance of mindset in your music career as well as your personal life before.
How you think can have a huge impact on the things you do, your ability to solve problems, and your willingness to do whatever it takes to make your dreams a reality.
This section of the eBook serves to prepare you for the age we are in, and the one that is to come.
I hope you enjoy this reading of Adapting, Growing and Thriving in The Information Age, and if you want more, don’t forget that there’s plenty for you to explore in the remainder of the book.
In this episode, you will discover:
- Why last week’s episode came out later than usual.
- Why I moved The Music Entrepreneur website over to a new hosting plan.
- Why I’m considering hiring or delegating more responsibilities to others.
- Why the music industry fell behind the times.
- Why it was foolish to think that the Compact Disc would remain a viable business model forever.
- What Napster showed us about the future of the music industry.
