Music Entrepreneurship

At Music Entrepreneur HQ, this is how we define music entrepreneurship:

The act of taking a business-based approach to your music career to create faster and better results, more opportunity, more revenue streams, more impact, and more freedom.

It’s as simple as that.

But we know you want to go deeper, and we’ve got several articles you’ll find helpful. They are as follows:

Making Money

Many people assume entrepreneurship is about making money at the expense of all other things – sleep, health, relationships, and so on.

At Music Entrepreneur HQ, we don’t buy into that idea, even if short-term sacrifice might be part of the journey.

Still, making money is exciting, and it can be used as a measuring stick for progress and success depending on the game you’re playing.

Here are some helpful articles in this category:

Music Marketing

A musician’s journey typically begins with wood-shedding and learning one’s craft (if you’re still in the phase, we recommend checking out the Musical U online community).

But unless you’re planning to become a jazz or classical musician, there isn’t necessarily a clear path laid out for you.

As musicians go to work on their music, they soon realize they need a way to get it out into the world. This is what music marketing is all about.

Here are a few articles worth reading on the topic:
