It's all about perspective..

Here's something not many people know about me. A lot of people ask me how I was able to become a full time producer/musician. Well, I did something that a lot of people wouldn't. I would do full tracks for people for only $250, and let them keep ALL of the rights. Yep. All of it. I was so sick of my 9-5 that I was willing to do that if it meant I could leave my job. My ad on Craigslist would end with "You Dream It, I Scheme It, You Own It!" Now of course I felt crazy for doing it, and you know my friends called me crazy too. But while they were charging $1000/per track with absolutely NO clients, people were jumping on my deal like crazy! Within a few months, I acquired over 14 songwriting clients. I would easily make a stack every week, sometimes more because they just kept writing new songs and sending them to me. One guy actually went to the bank and took out a loan because he had 15 songs he wanted me to produce. In no time I replaced the income I was making on my 9-5, and in 2010 I walked off my job as a delivery driver, and haven't worked on a job that wasn't music based since. I know tracks can be potentially worth millions, but I just felt like why not sale a track that I could make in 2 hrs for $250. I mean, some days as a delivery driver, I would deliver $30,000 of medicine in one day, but only got paid $11/hr. NOW THATS WHAT I CALL CRAZY! I guess it's all about perspective. Now today, I don't do tracks cheap like that anymore, but I can definitely say I don't regret it one bit. Even if one of those tracks went platinum today, the money I would miss from it couldn't possibly replace the last 4 years of NOT having to wake up at 3:45am, to get to work by 5am, only to get off at 6pm, just to go home and sleep and do it all over again they next day. I just thought I would tell this story. It might actually help someone. If you're anything like me, then every now and then while you're at work, a thought comes across your mind like "what in the world am I doing here!" If that's you, then you might wanna read this story a couple of times lolol!ย

    That is one of the main reasons that I am very much interested in knowing the history of the things. As most of the time their names are greatly related with their history. write my assignment Also sometimes you can realize the importance of the thing just by knowing its name like this one here shows its importance by its name that is โ€œcure allโ€.
