Friends, when I set out to become a successful, full-time live sound engineer at the age of 35 with no formal education in audio, no money in the bank, no industry connections and no other backup plan I was certainly _not_ ready. But I was so fed up with my old life that I knew I had to make a drastic change and pay whatever price was necessary. Rarely, if ever, will you be truly “ready” for the challenges in life that will help you advance to the next level. So if you’re still hesitating about getting your feet wet in the audio world or you’ve already started but you’re afraid of taking on the challenges that will get you noticed by the people on the next tier up, please watch this video by Marie Forleo and consider following her on your preferred social media platform(s). She’s one of my favorites and a huge inspiration for me starting LiveSoundTips.com.
