Yo. This episode with Alison Clancy – music marketer and community builder – is full of sooooo many good nuggets. I can’t wait for you to have a listen! We actually recorded this in space (thanks, zoom backgrounds!) and talk about a ton of things including,
- Virtual events vs. IRL events.
- The good ol’ days of Myspace and Live Journal
- Learning when in unfamiliar waters
- Transferring skills into an industry you love
- The dark side of the ego
- Cultivating community + creating boundaries.
- The importance of a close group of people (personal advisory board!) you can call at the drop of a hat for business or personal advice.
“When you take a chance, you might not get exactly what you want, but everything’s a learning opportunity. It might be that you weren’t ready for that thing you wanted just yet. Maybe you had some things you had to really learn whether that’s in your life or in your career or about yourself and it’s all in preparation for that thing that you’re going to eventually get to.”
