Listen up:

The first thing I am going to say is that I am a Grammy Award Winning Music Producer, who is an accomplished veteran in the entertainment industry who has performed over 1,200 + shows for over 350,000 people made lots of money doing it. Before I was a performer, I worked in every area of the industry including management, publicity, music production and event production. I have spent a total of 14 years in the music industry, the first 7 of which were on the business side learning how artists made their money. Once I found out, I picked up my guitar, created a brand, and went out there and did it myself. No more kissing Rockstar asses.

I got the money they could have had because now I knew how to make it for myself, so why they hell would I pay it to them? I wouldn't, that's the point. I created my own music, my own brand and went out there and got that money.

If I can do it, you can do it to. I will show you the way.

I'm going to be short and sweet and to the point.

If you landed here you are probably an artist, musician, or performer that is trying to do better in your career or make a real living from your art. Maybe you're just getting started or have dreams of doing it but you don't know how. That's okay too.

 Me with my Grammy Award. You can see on there is my Birthname. Michael Manicotti is the alias I am using for this project because I just released a book called Social Media Rehab and there is another famous author with the same birthname as me.

Luckily, I can help with all of that.

Because I don't have a lot of time, I took some highlights of my content associated with the business of entertainment and will provide them here for you. The videos, each 45-minutes in length (some art longer) discuss various aspects of the music industry and what you can do to improve your career immediately.

If you are just starting out and have no idea what do to, that's okay. You should watch these videos anyways so that you have a reference point for things you need to consider in your career.

Here are the video titles:

  1. How to Become a Successful Artist

  2. How to Become a Sustainable Artist

  3. How to Keep your Business in Check

  4. Things you can automate to improve your life

  5. 14 Things a Real Artist does.

  6. Bonus video (What I learned driving my camper through Mexico.)

  7. The Power of the Brand video (featuring the Money Bunny)

It doesn't matter what order you watch them in. The bottom line is that they will help you.

Many people have been trying to get me to tell my story for years and years, so I am going to start by doing it right here for you. But my story is not as important as what I know that can help you. I started out just like you, probably worse. My job is to help you skip the line and get to where you're trying to go faster. If I can do it and end up winning a Grammy award, maybe you can too.

Now, I will be honest, I recorded this stuff a little earlier in the year and what I am working on now is even better, but I think it's also important for you as an aspiring artist to see the process a professional artist goes through to bring their dreams into fruition and to create value for others.

You see what I mean? Everything starts in our minds and we slowly build it out and change things as we refine our work. You will learn about this later and also in the videos.

I recorded most of this material after returning from a wild and crazy journey I took driving a camper through the country of Mexico, so there might be a hint of frustration in my voice. All stuff you need to hear. I will also include a video story about that trip as well.

 This is another screenshot of one of the videos. Keep reading!! You're almost there.

It hurts to even think about all the money I lost and time I wasted to get where I am today. To be honest, sometimes my mind tries to block out the bad parts because they were so traumatic. But I didn't give up and it's not wasted time if I can help you achieve your dreams.

Not just that, I have tons more content not just related to being an artist but related to the life of an artist that will also enlighten you and make you realize that you are not alone in being different and possibly a little bit "crazy".

In addition to all of this, I want you to ask me questions, because I probably have answers to a lot of those unanswered questions lingering in your head.  Do you have questions about the music industry or life? Ask me and I will provide video responses and post them on my site so that everyone can learn. Nothing is off limits and it is all relevant, believe me. Being an artist is not just about learning an instrument. It's about life and how our unique light, gifts and skills can move people.

So, If all this sounds good to you and you're ready to start your journey towards becoming what you were destined to be as a creator, follow the button where it will prompt you to setup and take you to an exclusive student page where I have posted all the videos for you to watch. They will start to open your mind so we can move to the next step which is developing the most extensive program the industry has never seen because nobody is doing it. Nobody is show you the way, but I will.

I'll always remember a picture my dad gave me for my 16th birthday. It has an Apache attack helicopter on it with a pilot walking towards it to undoubtedly do something amazing. I put that picture above my desk and it said:

Leadership:

Know the way, go the way and show the way. That's what I hope to do here for you.

I'm looking forward to sharing all that I know with you so you can be what you want to be and live your dreams and truest potential.

That being said, let's get down to business.

To an exciting journey ahead I salute you,

Michael
