While you’re here, stay locked in the shed.
Enjoy this wonderful isolation, with no responsibility but to improve yourself.
But when you leave here, head to the business aisle of the bookstore and start reading a book a week about entrepreneurial things like marketing.
Never underestimate the importance of making money making music.
Let go of any weird taboos you have about it.
Money is nothing more than neutral proof that you’re adding value to people’s lives.
Making sure you’re making money is just a way of making sure you’re doing something of value to others.
Remember that this usually comes from doing the things that most people don’t do.

I love this guy! He could be talking about anything, but his passion goes through the door of music. He's the creator of CD Baby where you can buy my CD's. He's created a life doing what he loves and is such an inspiration to aspiring artists. AWESOME. Here's his whole speech:

Have a GREAT day! :-) H.
