TEM 102: Embrace the Process (TEM Short)

Listen via:

iTunes

This TEM Short is in response to my conversation with The Bulletproof Musician's Noa Kageyama in TEM 101 where he spoke about the power of embracing the process.

"(Music) was a craft that I needed to work on every day to get better at and even now in other things I do, I'm always really kind of geeked out most about the process of getting better at something, sometimes even more than the activity or the craft itself. I think engaging in this continual improvement process is what really intrigues me."

—Noa Kageyama of The Bulletproof Musician

TEM 101: Noa Kageyama of The Bulletproof Musician on the Rule of Thirds, Building a Huge Email List and What Entrepreneurs Can Learn From Performance Psychology

Noa Kageyama of The Juilliard School and The Bulletproof Musician talks about being a musical entrepreneur and what we can learn from performance psychology.

What You'll Learn:

  • The details of Noa's fascinating journey through the music journey which included moving to Japan at a young age for six months to study with Dr. Shinichi Suzuki
  • How his desire to get out of orchestra at Oberlin led him to getting a double major in psychology
  • How he built such a great (and popular) website
  • How a friend challenged him to question whether he was approaching his music as a hobby or a profession
  • The importance of promoting yourself in a way that feels good to you and his advice on how to get comfortable promoting yourself
  • How his website and all of his online offerings have morphed over time
  • Noa's advice on getting comfortable with marketing yourself
  • How the Rule of Thirds keeps you focused on the people ready to hear your message
  • How long his average blog post takes to create
  • What as entrepreneurs we can learn from performance psychology
  • How he has built an email list of over 32,000 people
  • The advice Noa would give to a musical entrepreneur who is looking to branch out from "just" teaching or performing

Favorite Quotes:

  • "(Music) was a craft that I needed to work on every day to get better at and even now in other things I do, I'm always really kind of geeked out most about the process of getting better at something, sometimes even more than the activity or the craft itself. I think engaging in this continual improvement process is what really intrigues me."

  • "You have to find a way to market that feels right to you, that feels good to you. Like you're doing a service, not trying to take people's money away from them and cheat them in some way."

  • "The world doesn't become a better place by you hiding what it is that you can contribute."
  • "If you're not interested in promoting yourself, stay in your $#@%ing basement." (—Ben Folds)
