I wanna be filthy rich! Yeah that's what I want to be.. In one of my first blogs I wrote that it isn't about money. That's true, but money is important. I'm not making music for money. I make music, because I want to. But.. money is also important! Unfortunately, I got bills, as well. Just like you..
So, I better combine those facts:
'I need to make music and
I need money'.
Solution: Make music and sell it. Easy! Yeah, right..
No, that's not the case. I know from experience that most people will not download on iTunes and also won't check me out on Spotify. Alright, you go to a real 'Jssst' gig with all your friends and family and buy a ticket. Okay, but where and when is it?
I know from my own experiences that is also pretty hard to get a gig, and when I do have a gig. In most cases people won't pay for a ticket. It is a free gig!! So, I can't make money with it...
Okay, but how the freaking hell am I suposed to pay my bills?
Solution: Get a proper job.
I have, actually I got two jobs. And I like that work. The first job is a worker/trainer in a warehouse (where originally the name 'House' comes from;-). The second one is sharing my knowledge about math to students.
Both jobs pay my bills.
But I want to combine those jobs. What will we get? Sharing 'House' music to people. Better known as a DJ.
I am a DJ! Yeah!!
But I'm still in learning proces.
Some day that will pay my bills!
I hope. Or the worst case scenario will become real. That would be the mad professor who's counting everything, always in the warehouse... dancing on his beats in his twisted mind.
But hey, he's able to pay the rent..
