Saturday night rant

Hey all,

Hope that you’re all doing well. I havn’t reached out virtually lately and feel that I needed to touch base with everyone. Thank you again for watching, reading and being a part of my journey in some form. I recently added my Mindful Minutes With Musicians Shorts; A Mindful Minute with a Musician on my YOUTUBE

I guess this is my own little Saturday Night Live, by offering up a bunch of content from Mindful Minutes With Musicians. Again, I really appreciate everyone checking this out and if there is one thing that I would ask of you is to tell one person. I think that if everyone were to share this with one person then we would be able to get this great podcast and these great words to more people. It is a slow process, but one that is started and can’t stop now.

If you feel like you’ve been effected in any way by this podcast or if you have already shared it with anyone, please let me know and connect with me. I would love to hear how this has effected anyone’s life and made a positive change.

All comments are welcome and I look forward to connecting.

Monday Motivation

Hey everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. Todays motivation is great, from episode 3 with KidKold. “Embrace your creation and harness it when it comes or it will find the next person who is ready for it”

Appreciate The Process

For a while I had wanted to be a part of a radio show or involved in something like that. I took Radio Broadcasting in college and never really got into radio just because of the lack of jobs for on air talent, especially for anyone who was new to the industry. I am also in love with music and the music creation process and wanted to be involved in that as well. I ended up finding a career in the tech side of live entertainment and was able to live out those dreams of being back stage or on the stage at the concerts and festivals. As the pandemic has effected millions around the globe, I too was effected in work. I knew that there had to be something that I could still bring and do even while there was ZERO live events happening.

That’s when I started MINDFUL MINUTES WITH MUSICIANS. the podcast where I was able to take the skills that I had learned years ago in college and apply them to my very own podcast. It has definitely not been an easy process in any stretch of the imagination. There were a lot of ideas that I had and had to focus it down in on something. And mindfulness was that thing that I believed a lot of people want to learn or find out how others are doing it. I too wanted to find out what others were doing during these hard times so that I was able to adapt and make the most of things.

The first few episodes were really what was needed to get this off the ground, and as I got more and more guests and went through the process of what I want to focus on and how I wanted to frame the show. I was able to make subtle changes to refine the show as each episode progressed. I am so appreciative to everyone who has been a part of this process. Along the way there’s been bumps. I’ve missed appointments to record new episodes and I’ve gone through a number of different technical difficulties along the way; cameras dying during the show, music not playing and mispronouncing things. My setup and how it is edited has changed a few times as well.

The main thing that keeps it going is the want to share peoples stories. I think that there are so many things that we learn from each other on a day to day basis that this is another way to harness that. I have had the pleasure to talk to so many different artists who not only play or have an appreciation for music but also have amazing stories and experiences to share. If you have taken the time to read this post, I hope that you take time to go through some of the episodes as there is for sure something in there that is a takeaway. I appreciate you and thank you.
