Hello. My name is Melissa, and I am making a living as a musician.
I truly believe people should follow their bliss when they’re looking at potential career paths. This blog is specifically for artists (musicians, writers, actors, any kind of art) who can’t imagine spending their lives working at a job they hate for the rest of their lives.
Now, I think most people think you have to be famous to be a successful artist. That’s not the case. There are plenty of ways to make money doing things you love without being a big time movie star or singer or whatever. Sometimes it means getting creative and being flexible. It also won’t necessarily be easy, but it is certainly something artists can achieve.
This blog is not about getting rich and famous. This blog will showcase real-life artists that I know who are very successful in their chosen fields. These are people who have made a decent living with their chosen art form. I’ll also give you tips on how you can achieve success yourself, and you can follow my still-going story to see my own successes and failures.
If you’re looking for fame and fortune, this blog is not for you. But if you are an artist looking for a way to support yourself (and maybe a family), I hope this blog can give you the tools and encouragement you need to live a life you love.
P.S. I want to give a big shout-out to one of my BFFs and possibly my biggest fan, Rachel Carlson. She always proofreads my posts and gives me lots of love and encouragement. Thanks boo for all of your help and kind words. <3 (We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.)
