Happy new yeeear!!!
New Years Resolution
Every year I think of a habitual thing to change or work on, and a overall concept for the year. I quite enjoy thinking of these and making a change in myself artistically and sometimes for health reasons etc…
This year is about Sacrifice. This is something I honestly don’t do a lot. I rarely say no to anything. Another drink, another ciggy, going out, working for other people when I should stay home and work on my own business etc…
Example: I am doing dry January and have given up smoking too. (Don’t worry I’ll be smoking and drinking lots again in February I’m sure). But because I am not drinking, I really wanted to goto the staff party for the place I have been working at recently, but I made a sacrifice and sacked it off 🙁 I am real bummed I couldn’t go cos I wasn’t drinking and wasn’t going to spend £50 travelling back to Cambridge from London for a sober party when everyone else is on the razzledazzle. I would have ended up drinking for sure. BUT, I did stay in that weekend and smashed out looooads of work fror the label and am now really happy with the progress. My thoughts are more clear at the moment and I feel like my business is really coming along. Wahey! Overall, I’m more happy that I sacrificed the piss up and chose to make progress with the things I know really make me happy. Happy days 🙂
I plan to choose to sacrifice certain things to achieve the goals that make me happier in the long run. (Or something like that).
So, more like this in 2019 please. Safe.
2019 Sorting This Website
It’s getting close to the point where my label is almost ready for launch, which means I’m going to set off the big project I’ve been planning and working on for years now. However this website needs to be sorted out.
I am going to state some goals for me to work towards this year for this website.
Goal 1 – To write at least 48 blog (or vlog) posts in 6 months. Thats 2 per week
Goal 2 – To have the newly re-organised Kat Nine Music .com website launched.
Goal 3 – To sign up 100 subscribers
Goal 4 – To make (a) some sales through the traffic from this website. Monetise.
Goal 5 – To finish my first course ready for release on this website.
Goal 6 – To sketch out 2 more courses with timeframes and module content.
2019 A New View To Writing Blogs
I am going to shift my focus towards that of making money from the music business, as this is now a big part of what I am trying to do. I have made music and art for love for almost 10 years, and yielded little money from it. I want to make music my life (Mike Monday) 😉 so this is what needs to happen. I have spent years creating and have a backlog of work, so now I need to maintain focus on how to distribute my product efficiently.
To do this, I will be creating some of my documentation series’ into short courses, which will then be advertised (somewhere…).
2019 A New Notion For The Website
Previously my idea behind the website was ‘follow the journey, learn with me’, but I feel I want to change this now. Some current ideas for new notions/focus-shift are: ‘The journey of an artist in the music industry’. Documentation + Tutorial. Research. (Shop?). OR ‘A creative trying to make it in the music industry’. Research Blog, Documentation, Tutorial (and Shop)’. ‘A determined artist on the road to success in the music industry’. Well something like that anyway. It’s the beginning of an idea.
And just so I don’t forget… Again, a large focus shift which has to occur is the exploration into Music Business, Making Money, Running A Label and alllll that jazz!
Thats enough for now. Crack on!
