My Advice on Building A Business Around What You Love✊

When I was a young boy, maybe around 11 years old…I was practicing playing my guitar and having fun with it, when my Grandfather came up and said to me harshly… 

“Don’t waste your time with that. Study hard, there’s no money being a musician, get good grades so you can get a good job”. 

Although he meant well, I only realised later on in my life how much what he said really sunk in and affected me and my confidence in expressing myself. 

So, later in life, I went down the corporate route, specialising in sales & marketing, and my financial situation and professional status kept on rising. 

But the more focused and successful I was in my corporate career, the more my soul felt…”sick”. 

Like there was a big emptiness in my heart… 

I also felt strangely guilty – as if I had abandoned someone (or something) I loved. 

I spent many years feeling guilty, confused and sad about this – before I finally worked out that music was always inside of me, just waiting to be let out and expressed freely. 

I think a lot of people have this experience when they’re young, when someone, maybe a parent or teacher, advises them to take a practical route in studying hard and getting a ‘good job’. 

But what most people find later on in life, is that just having a good job that pays the bills isn’t what makes them truly happy, it’s being able to express themselves freely and share whatever natural talents they have with others, that does. 

So, my message to you…is wherever you are in your life’s journey, it’s never too late to do that. 

As for me, I’ve learned to be at peace with who I am ( a wonderfully weird combination of artist and entrepreneur : )) and to use elements of my artistic side for business. 

But that’s a story for another time. 

What I was able to learn from my experiences is that, 

Even negative feelings like pain, guilt and regret can help us find and discover the right path by showing us things we need to learn about ourselves…things no one can teach us, and only time can reveal. 

The ‘best version of you’ and the life of your dreams might be the result of a ‘combination‘ of things you have yet to discover about yourself…and are yet to come. 

Speak soon,
