As of the age of 30 I decided to become self-employed. My goal was to design my life so that I could make my full time "job" (if you want to call it that) playing music. I now currently spend my extra free time writing books, blogging, training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and playing music. All of my books generally contain one underlying theme - "Live how you choose to".
In the pursuit of becoming self-employed, you may decide that you would like to create several different revenue streams. You could combine both passive and active income streams (aka. freelance work). This free eBook gives you 51 ideas as to what direction you may get started in towards the "active" income streams part of it.
At the age of 30, I decided to alter my life in an extremely "bizarre" way. I decided that I wanted to quit my high paying job, and instead spend my life doing only the things that I enjoy such as playing music, writing, and martial arts. I still have a mortgage and lots of other fun bills that need to be paid, but I've created a life that allows me to live the way I choose. Anyone can do it!
This book is both for musicians that are either starting from scratch, or those who are experienced in the industry. No matter what your level is, this book points out in great detail how to succeed as a gigging musician. I've been gigging for about 15 years now, and this is now basically my full-time job. I love it!
