Here we are, Tiffany, Nick, Ixi and Ted yesterday during the last day of the 7-day THRIVE Challenge. We were talking about the things that have helped us most as we seek & create opportunity as musicians.
Here were our 6 best tips for how YOU can seek & create opportunity in your musical (and non-musical) life!
Center around your purpose. Don't narrow your focus on specific opportunities but instead look outward and see ALL the ways you can fulfill that purpose!
Don't be afraid to take messy action. It ain't pretty when you jump into a new project and face the fear of failure! But guess what? It's only through action that you can find answers!
DIVE IN! And know you may fail more than you succeed, but you'll always learn. And, listen closely to the things you decide to dive into - what do they have in common?
When others go right, go left. Look at what others AREN'T doing, what music ISN'T being played, who ISN'T being heard, and ask yourself what your role can be in making that happen.
Imagine all the ways you can monetize your skills sets and CONTRIBUTE to the world! Who can you help with what you know?
Ask for help. You do not have to do this alone. That is a terrible assumption!

This is our regularly-scheduled Monday email, but you're also getting a few emails about THRIVE this week.
When we started THRIVE, we asked: how do we help musicians seek & create opportunity in their lives by developing the artistic skills, entrepreneurial mindset and wellness toolkit to THRIVE as a musician in our rapidly changing world?
Thanks for reading. We aim to provide actionable ideas in our email newsletters, programs and content. Each week we share thoughts, ideas, questions, strategies and actions that we hope can move the needle for you in your life and career! Here's where we talk about why you're on our list (you signed up for a technique tip, a scale reset, a worksheet, a challenge, to get a printable, some tips, excerpt or practice help or resources), and that we'd love it if you shared some of our ideas with your friends.
