Last week I had the privilege of sharing my story with the students at Visible School of Music and Worship Arts College in Memphis, TN.
I met the founder and totally cool guy Ken Steorts in Hungary a few years ago where I was Director of Worship for the Sozo International Music and Arts Festival. I was invited to share about my experiences in music entrepreneurship and worship ministry. Yes, an unusual combination, but that’s my story.
My talk was about how I started out producing music for advertising, built a successful business, and transitioned into worship ministry. When I got out of college with a music degree, there was not a clear path to figure out how to make a living doing it. Â I shared some timeless and universal principles I learned.Â I’ll feature these in a blog series “Principles for Starting Out in Business.”
It just so happened that the Songwriting Program led byÂ VS Alumni Andy Newton is conducting a jingle contest to promote their Pancake Breakfast fundraiser coming up.
So I recorded this little ditty … just for fun.
