Curiously, this topic was brought up a lot this week in various parts of my life. I had a few comments on my last video that talked about this, and a few of my students raised some questions about sustainability as a musician. I have thought through this topic for a long time and have created boundaries for myself that have helped me feel like I am working a sustainable career, so why not talk about it?
That being said, it was really difficult to figure out how to talk about this topic. It took until I chatted about the topic with my family, friends, and Patreon patrons to figure out a way to organize my thoughts in an understandable and cohesive way.
I'd love to make another video about my thoughts on my worth as a musician. I actually broached the topic a bit while shooting this video, but never made any conclusion about it, so it was ultimately cut from the video. That's a whole other can of worms for another Saturday video. :)
Let me know your thoughts! Would love to continue this discussion with you guys. :)
