The Profitable Musician Summit is just around the corner and I wanted to share some tips and tricks to kick comparison to the curb so you can be inspired and learn from our experts.

Wondering how to grow as a musician but get caught up in comparing yourself to others? Or even worse, do feelings of jealousy creep up when you hear about all the great things other musicians are doing? It’s easy to get into the wrong mindset after hearing everyone’s success stories, especially if you have tried the same tactics without the same effect. Luckily, there are tools to deal with those feelings because no matter what level you’re at, those feelings can creep in. Using these tips will help you stay inspired instead of getting stuck in the comparison game.

The Profitable Musician Summit starts May 1st and we will be hearing from 39 experts from across the music industry. Reserve your FREE ticket now! Be sure to sign up for Messenger Reminders so that you don’t miss a thing!
