I’m going to ask you to buy something today.
And I make no apologies for it.
Because I’ve gone through a personal HELL to create it.
Let me give you the “Reader’s Digest” version of this story:
Since age 7 the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do was be a professional musician.
Professional guitarist to be more specific.
And I was.
For a while. Starting at age 15.
Then I let the dream stealers rob it from me.
Even today, it’s my biggest, most “kicked in the gut” painful regret I have.
I still lament it. Almost daily.
You see… knowing what I know now… from the success I’ve experienced in business due to my pig-headed stubborn persistence…
…without a doubt I could have made it as a professional musician.
But instead of focusing on that like I wanted to, I went for the money and chose to get good at this entrepreneurship, direct marketing and copywriting stuff.
I can’t complain. Life’s been good to me so far. (A nod to one of my first guitar heroes, Joe Walsh.)
BUT… this crazy seven year old child’s dream simply REFUSES to die.
So here’s what I did:
I invested nine years of my life…
…God knows how much money (I stopped counting after I passed $20k a few years ago)…
…and endured more emotional turmoil and self hate than any sane person should ever subject themselves to…
…to FINALLY release my debut solo album of original music here…
And I humbly ask you to buy it.
OK, I’m goin’ for broke…
Pretty please with sugar on top… BUY MY ALBUM!
I thought about offering you some kind of bonus to get you to buy my music.
Like a special webinar showing how YOU can do your own “passion projects” like this.
But who am I kidding? The only thing I could teach you is how NOT to do it.
I mean, really. Nine frickin’ YEARS to finish the damn thing?
It’s pathetic and embarrassing.
And it’s not even CLOSE to how I wanted it to be.
How I dreamed it would be.
But I have to accept it as it is while trying not to beat the hell outta myself mentally.
Because this CD definitely did NOT turn out like the ideal I had in my mind.
Not even close.
Whatever. It’s something MUCH more important than the perfection I wanted…
So I’m doing what I’ve always done in business.
I’m running it up the flag pole. Imperfections, outright errors and all. To see how many people salute it with their credit cards.
And I sincerely hope you’re one of them.
So no, there’s no bribe or bonus to get you to buy it.
I hope you buy it just because you like the music.
Look, if there’s any relationship at all between you and me…
If you’ve benefitted from my daily emails even just occasionally…
If you appreciate what I do… even the TINIEST little bit… to encourage, teach and inspire you every day…
…and you want to buy my album just to show your appreciation…
…that’s OK with me.
I appreciate your support and your purchase.
Listen… I’m scared shitless about exposing my art to the world.
But I had no choice. I simply HAD to finally pursue my childhood dream.
Even at the ripe old age of 51.
Because the thought of dying with the music still inside me (literally!) was MUCH more painful than the emotional price I paid to do it.
Listen… I’ll leave you with one VERY important question.
Maybe the most important question of your life:
Will YOU choose to die with your “music” still inside you?
Or will you make a decision TODAY to face your fears and do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true?
I know it sounds cliché… but I’m gonna say it anyway… ‘cuz it’s true:
If I can do it… YOU can do it.
Click here now to preview and buy (I hope, I hope, I hope!) my new original music solo album.
Thank you. I appreciate your support in my new venture.
All the best,
