Free Aug 20 Teleclass: How to Build an Indie Music Career

On Monday, August 20, join me and my guest, Christine Kane, as we deliver a teleclass called "The Empowered Artist: How to Build a Music Career On Your Own Terms."
Christine is the living epitome of a full-time empowered artist. She is a singer-songwriter, performer, teacher and writer. Her career in music and the arts has been dynamic and multi-faceted. The Washington Post called her "a petite powerhouse of a singer."

She regularly headlines at major events such as the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, Kate Wolf Festival, and Chattanooga's Riverbend Festival. Her songs have been recorded by country diva Kathy Mattea and Nashville Star finalist Casey Simpson.

During the Aug 20 conference call, Christine will share her experiences of becoming a songwriter and performer, and of starting her own business to manage her growing career. We'll discuss ...
  • the importance of intent, inspiration, and action.
  • how to move through doubt, fear and other obstacles that hold musicians back.
  • developing a music career action plan and multiple streams of income.
  • how to take control of your career instead of being a victim.
  • letting go of the "security" myth that keeps people stuck in unfulfilling day jobs.
  • how to use creativity to design a more artful and abundant life.
For a sample of Christine's philosophy and attitude, here are a couple of inspiring blog posts you should check out:
