2008: Jump-Start Your Music Career

Happy New Year!

There's something important I want you to watch and read. Monday night, before Pooki and I left for a New Year's Eve party, I recorded a special video clip. I just posted it on this page.

It's all about how you should be taking advantage of the new year. How the slate has been wiped clean -- and you now get a fresh start and a new chance to grow your career and share your music with the world.

The video also reveals one of the most unusual resources I've ever created. I'd love to know what you think. Watch and read it here.

In addition to that, here are a few books and blogs that will help you get focused and on track early in the new year:

Organizing for Your Brain Type: Finding Your Own Solution to Managing Time, Paper, and Stuff by Lanna Nakone and Arlene Taylor. It's scary how well they have me pegged, based on their brain type profile questions. No wonder I stack things. It's part of my DNA!

Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen. Lots of great ideas in this best-selling book. - Leo Babauta's wonderful blog of practical tips. - a site filled with tools and tricks to help you get things done.

Hi Bob
I've just purchased your Indie Music Confindential and it looks great! I haven't read/listened to everything just yet but already I'm inspired. I think I know the net pretty well but you always come up with sites I still haven't heard of or thought of! What I really like about your books is that I find I can often apply a huge amount of the techniques you suggest to my other creative work as well as music so it's like a double bonus!
Thanks very much and happy new year.
