Last year, David’s fifth book, The Music Entrepreneur Code became a best-seller and was well-received by musicians, entrepreneurs, and freelancers alike.
In our ongoing efforts to help you on your musical journey, we wanted to put together a brand-new edition with more personal stories, more data and insights, more opportunities, and more ninja (find out what this refers to in the video).
And so, we came up with The Music Entrepreneur Code – 2022 Edition which is now available on Amazon.

David Andrew Wiebe here with Music Entrepreneur HQ. And I wanted to put together quick video today to talk about The Music Entrepreneur Code – 2022 Edition.
Why a New Edition?
So, why put together a new edition of this book now? Why would you want it? Why does it even matter?
Last year, this book did really well for us, became another best-seller. Got a lot of positive feedback on it. Thank you, that would not be possible without your support.
And so, we thought what could we do to build on it? Is there something we could offer, something we could expand on, update, and revise, and we’re calling that “more ninja” because it’s boring to talk about updates and revisions. And put it back in your hands as something better than it was before.
An All-New Introduction with More Heart
One of the things that was completely revamped was the introduction. Why the introduction? Because I wanted to create a connection with you. I wanted to let you know that I’m a real human being too, I’ve been through struggles, I’ve been through challenges.
There have been all kinds of things in my life that haven’t gone as I thought they would especially in my artistic and music career. I wanted to create that relatability with you in the introduction, and share my story – not a sob story, not a B.S. backstory, it’s the true story of some of the struggles I’ve been through and where I am today as result of having overcome those challenges.
30 Pages of New Content Expanding on the Original Book
There are 30 new pages of content in the book as well. And I know I’m going to get some questions on this, so I’m going to answer it now.
You might compare the two editions side by side on Amazon and see that the page count is similar.
Look, we had to make some decisions about the interior design and reduce whitespace in the book to accommodate the dimensions of the cover. If you have too many pages, there are going to be issues in printing with the cover. So, to reconcile this, we did some things formatting wise to eliminate unnecessary space.
More Powerful Examples, Case Studies & Insights
There are a few more case studies, examples, breakthroughs, insights, and ideas in the book that put some meat on the bones of the book.
I’ll be talking more about that kind of stuff in my next book, The Music Entrepreneur Companion Guide, and it’s going to be a hell of a lot longer than The Music Entrepreneur Code.
Either way, the 2022 Edition of The Music Entrepreneur Code takes things further than the original release.
New Affiliate Opportunities
Finally, we also added opportunities. We wanted to create an affiliate program. The book talks about becoming an affiliate to earn a side income. So, we thought “why not make it so you could share this book and earn an income on it?” If you like it, you’re going to share it anyway, right? So, why not earn an income on your shares?
We’re looking to set up that affiliate opportunity as quickly as possible, but the only way you’d be able to get access to it is if you bought the book in the first place.
Paperback & Hardcover Editions to Come
It’s also worth mentioning that paperback and hardcover editions are coming. We’ve never done hardcovers before, but Amazon KDP recently made that feature available, and we’re excited about taking advantage of it.
So, if you didn’t already get your copy of The Music Entrepreneur Code, this is the definitive version. This is the one to get. We had some new things to share, with 30 pages worth of new content.
And if you already have a copy of The Music Entrepreneur Code, great, maybe this is for you, maybe it isn’t, but we’d love for you to go and have a look.
So, I invite you one last time to check out the latest edition of The Music Entrepreneur Code. Like, comment, and subscribe. Thanks for joining me.
