    Non-stop fam. Nothing else

    Set up automated emails
    Set up scheduled youtube uploads
    Set up automated socials
    Make beats non-stop

    Don't for a second pause on family issues.
    Music can wait.

    I hear you.

    My daughter is autistic so the more time i spend with her the better. I just want her to live a normal life when she becomes an adult.

    I guess i am just tired of working for other people.

    Thankfully in the near future i will have an opportunity to work less and focus more on music!

    I've started several successful online businesses and it was hell at first. I always tell people that are in the same position to you is 5 minutes towards your goal a day is still better than most lazy producers playing video games instead. Keep your mind in it.

    I do this full time now but for a couple years I had 3 jobs, it was rough. You got this.

    I've watched those videos, Curtiss King is the truth! I know I have what it takes based on my previous sales but having a job is hindering me alot lol

    I have no intentions on quitting music, I think I'd quit my job first lol. I do have a pressure cleaning business I could start back up. Quick easy money!

    I know the pain, Lemme just put this out there for you. I began selling beats online since mp3.com in 2000, no gf, kids or job as it was my yearly income and quite comfortable doing so until about 2006. Got regular gf, had first kid at 30 now onto 2nd kid and im sitting at 38 with a fulltime job, bills, 2 days off a week where I get 4-5 hours on fridays to myself and I manage to finish/upload 2 beats per week on the weekends and have a solid 90 regular customers that buy leases and exclusive rights which puts me at an overall 6 figure yearly income. I will say the last 2 years has been my most profitable since I first began due to quality, consistancy & having a set schedule. Above all else Family Always Comes First :-D

    I am on the same boat with Fridays. I'll never stop making music, i just wish i had more time. I know my time is coming soon, i am optimistic.
