GSP #14: Success is today. Failure is tomorrow. And there’s only today. Tomorrow doesn’t exist.
Getcha Some Productions Podcast Episode 14 https://reverb.grsm.io/GetchaSome (https://reverb.grsm.io/GetchaSome) A podcast covering all things related to music production: from the first note to the last fan and everything in between. Not your typical “how-to” podcast: For a new listeners, each episode is a live business meeting. We are figuring out how to build a music production company (a media empire) as we go and listeners come along for the ride. Every podcast is a business meeting, every business meeting is a podcast. This podcast is (always) candid and unrehearsed. In this episode we discuss: As usual, we don’t speak to each other before recording our podcast, this episode is no exception. We have no idea what we’re going to talk about. Except the fact that we’re so fucking tired. Even though we are adults with lives outside of this podcast (and outside of building this business), we knew that we had to do this episode to keep things moving forward. By the time you listen to this podcast the website is already pretty much completely built and running smoothly but at the time of recording it wasn’t. The motto of our business and our podcast has been to “just do one thing.” If you can just do one thing per day or one thing per week you will move forward. So if you’re having trouble making progress with your business (or with your songwriting or whatever project you’re working on) just do one thing. This is such a hard thing to remember but it’s probably the most important thing to stay focused on and probably the most powerful thing you can do to move your project forward. I (Keith) have been doing the process of doing just one thing per day for a while now to get the website up and it took a few weeks (or as long as a month) to get the website up and running with about a half an hour per day of work. The website has a cover page and few additional pages including a picture gallery which is just a feed from our Instagram. What is hilarious is that our Instagram reel, at this point in the website development, is just pictures of my sticker collection which exists on a particular guitar case that I decorate with stickers (my Languedoc Guitars Copy - Ollandoc Trey Anastasio style Guitar). That is our entire Instagram feed at this moment. So, kind of hilarious but it gets the job done and that it gets some interesting images online and at least get started with having a gallery. Once again, we need to reiterate the fact that this is not a podcast about making a podcast. Even though that is what we have largely been focusing on so far, this is really a podcast about music production (about creating and running a music production company). It is simply the fact that the format of the podcast is that every facet of our business gets done in full view of the public on the podcast. This podcast is highlighting a milestone, or the milestone, of when we finally got the podcast online. It was at the point of recording this episode that we finally got the website up and running and the podcast loaded onto the website so that a person other than me and Dan could actually listen to it. That’s a big deal for us. It’s a major milestone and a major accomplishment for us. Interestingly and importantly, I (Keith) was feeling a little scared and worried at this point. By contrast, Dan was actually feeling reassured by this. Never bet against someone who is willing to start and unwilling to quit. – Ed Latimore I think that it’s going to be one of the mottos of our podcast. And our business in general. Success is today. Failure is tomorrow. And there’s only today. Tomorrow doesn’t exist. My Zoom H4 crapped out so I had to go buy myself an Izotope Spire We always have to remember the first three words of our mission statement which is “to create constantly.” Maybe the Izotope Spire is the tool we need to facilitate that part of our mission. Once again, We want to interview local musicians so we...
