Who’s Shorting Your Stock?

What happened last week with GameStop stock is a perfect example of how we can look at our lives and careers, especially for those of you in the music business. There are more people than you would like to imagine that are shorting your stock as songwriter, artist, producer, business owner and entrepreneur. The major labels and publishing companies want to buy low and sell high.

We can learn some lessons about the powers that be and how they manipulate the markets to keep our value low so that we are cheap to acquire, but then when the value rises, they are the only ones that will benefit!

We Can All Be Tom Brady

How many of us waste our talents because we are scared of stepping out of the shadows of comfort, success and security? Maybe we are meant to shine in a completely different way and on our own, but we are afraid of losing what makes us most comfortable.

In today’s episode, I use Tom Brady as an example of how we might accomplish this! If we step out of the shadows of where and what makes us comfortable, I believe we are capable of amazing things. Sometimes, like Tom Brady, we need to lose that sense of security to find our real value. Much like Tom, who left a decade of success to test his true abilities by going to the Tampa Bay Bucs, all we are really missing in the journey to our legacy is the right set of different circumstances.

Music Industry Math

The music business, especially from a songwriting perspective,  just make much cents anymore, and yes, I spelled that correctly. What once was a viable career choice for those that honed their craft and wanted to come to Nashville to tell stories for a living, has not turned into a game of cents.

Having been in the music industry as a songwriter for over 20 years, I have witnessed the steady and steep decline first hand. It’s honestly been like watching a career path completely disappear right before my own eyes, it’s sad, but also inevitable under the current circumstance of the modern music business.

In today’s episode of The Steve Freeman Podcast, I walk you through the math of the current music industry from a songwriter’s perspective and explain why this path is no longer capable of providing a living for 99.9% of those that wich to do it for a living. In this episode, I go over Spotify royalties, Radio airplay, Publishing deals, YouTube, Mechanical Royalties and more.

Babe Ruth Syndrome

When we really stop to think about our expectations for our lives and our businesses, we step up to the plate and expect to hit a home run every time, and when we don’t we get frustrated, upset and even depressed. But, not even Babe Ruth hit a home run every time he stepped up to the plate.

If you really want to succeed, you should approach your life and business with a “Base Hit” mentality. Just get on base!

In today’s episode of The Steve Freeman Podcast, I talk about Babe Ruth syndrome and the concept of backing off of your expectations and thinking about just getting on base. Check it out now everywhere you get your podcasts or listen at the player above!
