In my Cultivating Your Talent post, I talked about waiting for my talent to drop out of the sky and how much that was a ton of wasted time. But I wanted to expand on an important part of that which is the failure to launch. Let me take you back to March 2014, or actually a little before then.
When I first graduated from Temple University, I was in hot pursuit of a music career. I actually wanted to be a songwriter. So I spent the next two years after I graduated from college working at an Italian restaurant for the flexibility and hopping from studio to studio trying to make it happen. And it was cool. I have actually had the opportunity to work with GRAMMY-nominated producers, I’ve written with indie artists on their projects and the biggest perk was that I met the love of my life in that process.
