20th of June Blog update

FeelingtheloveIt has been amazing week. I have really felt the love and support from you guys in the past week. I mean I always do, but somehow it just has been amplified this week 🙂 And all your lovely messages has made me just want to work harder. And I did push my self a lot. I had few things in the back boiler, that just did not seem to get done. But this week they did get done, and done in style.

I kind of find it hard to even imagine that “other” model in the music business, where I might not have direct contact and communication with you guys.

I thought I’ll include a new little feature into these weekly blog updates. And this is me looking back what I learned in the past week. Learning is something we do all the time, and sometimes even unconsciously. So this is as much for my self to journal, as for you guys to think what you learned in the past week:

What did I learn this week:
– I do enjoy problem solving, especially when it is music, music business or music technology related.
– Graphic is the best way to show people inaccuracies, who might have limited musical ear training.
– You need to consume a lot of salt and magnesium, while in ketosis 😀
– The importance of asking.

Obviously that is not a complete list, but those were the things that stood out for me. What did you learn this week?

And now off to this week’s blog posts:

This week’s song is about those magical moments we can have through live music, and how we should make the most of it when those moments come along:
