Transform Your Rough Recordings Into Released Records, Even If You Only Have a Home Studio

The Stupid Simple Math for Making a Living With Your Music

Have you ever wondered just how much work you need to start making a living as an audio engineer?

Yesterday, I got off the phone with a coaching student who wants to start making a living as an audio engineer and I jumped on a quick Facebook Live to talk about it.

I walk you through the simple thought process you need to calculate where you want to be in 12 months.

Quitting your job or transitioning to a new career is daunting, but when you put it into perspective and have a goal to reach, suddenly it becomes easier. This calculation isn’t only applicable to getting sessions as a mixing engineer. You can also use it to estimate just how many shows you need to play, how many students you need to teach, or how many records you need to release.

If you’re interested in getting 1-on-1 guidance to start making a bigger impact with your music skills, check out the mentoring and coaching I offer here.


I’m really enjoying the Facebook Live videos. There’s something spontaneous and fun about them. It’s like improv, but hopefully educational for your music. If you’d like me to do more, hit reply with a simple YES! to let me know I should continue.
