TEM111: Pop-Jazz Duo 23rd Hour Quotes (TEM Short)
23rd Hour is a jazz-pop duo comprised of Sherry-Lynn Lee and George Paolini.

Quotes:

  • "This is the heart of startup land and when you're doing a startup, and Sherry and I have both been in startups at various times, you try everything. Things that work, you keep doing. Things that don't work, you stop doing. You just have to try them and that's what we're doing."

  • "But we have this trust and we we are on the same page with where we want things to go and what kind of voice we want to have. So we are able to delegate but also work together and make it seamless."

  • "If people aren't careful they might not realize that its a marketing email because it’s so personable and that was our strategy. We wanted it to seem like we were really targeting that person and not just sending out a blast email."

  • "The way we do it is we try to take each win that we have and try to push it a little bit further and I think what works really well is when you position yourself as the underdog that just needs a little push to get to the next level."

Seth Hanes is a horn player, digital marketer and author of "Break into the Scene: A Musician's Guide to Making Connections, Creating Opportunities, and Launching a Career".

This TEM Short features thoughts on my favorite Seth Hanes quotes from TEM 107.

Quotes:

  • "The tactics don't dictate the strategy. The strategy should dictate the tactics."
  • "I think the first step that anyone should take, before they do anything...don't make a Facebook page, don't even make a website, don't do anything. The first thing you should do is first figure out what is the product or service that you have that solves an actual problem that people have? You have to identify a problem that you can solve."
  • "That's how I got on all of these (podcasts and blogs.) How can I be even kind of useful to this person? That's how I did that. And it cost me zero dollars."

TEM 107: Seth Hanes on How to Get Guest Appearances on Podcasts and Blogs, Getting a Self-Published Book to Number One on Three Different Amazon Lists and Why Strategy Should Always Dictate Tactics (and Not the Other Way Around)

Seth Hanes returns to TEM to tell us all about how he got his book, Break Into the Scene, to #1 on three different Amazon lists.

What You'll Learn:

  • The importance of having specific goals when marketing and of having a feedback loop to verify whether what you were doing was productive

  • Why strategy should always dictate tactics and not the other way around

  • Why the first step should always be identifying a specific problem your product or service will solve for people

  • How Seth built an email list (including the hard part - getting the first 100 subscribers!) and how he used it to help launch the book

  • The importance of validating an idea or product early in the process to make sure anyone will buy it

  • How he was able to get booked as a guest on 10 podcasts and write 10 guest blog posts in conjunction with the book launch

  • Gary Vaynerchuk's advice on how to launch a book (which is really easy for anyone to do for no money at all and applies to anything, not just a book)

  • Why he writes in his own voice in spite of the occasional critic

  • Why the key to marketing yourself as a musician is pushing past the discomfort

Corey Brown is the founder of the online bass magazine, No Treble, and worked with Seth Godin to build Squidoo, one of the most visited websites in the history of the internet.

This TEM Short features thoughts on my favorite Corey Brown quotes from TEM 105.

Quotes:

  • "We spent the summer (and) Seth's goal was to prototype (the website.) I don't know why but the team couldn't really pull together a prototype. So I said 'Well this is really too complicated of an idea to just jump into protyping. This thing has to be architected. That's a skillset he didn't bring me in for but it's a skillset I had."
  • "I'm inherently lazy. People don't think of me that way but I look for efficiencies in everything. If we're doing the same thing twice, I'm like 'Okay how do make this so we don't do this twice?'"
  • "I didn't see an online magazine for bass players, and there weren't that many of them anyway, but I didn't see one where I thought 'This is what I would want to build'. This was the opportunity to say 'This is the online magazine I think needs to exist and we'll see what happens and we'll see if people agree with me or not."
  • "In my mind, if you see an opportunity to connect with someone, you should just go for it."

TEM 105: Corey Brown of No Treble on Working with Seth Godin, Having the Courage to Reach Out to People You Want to Meet and Launching the World's Top Online Bass Magazine

Corey Brown is the founder of the online bass magazine, No Treble, and worked with Seth Godin to build Squidoo, one of the most visited websites in the history of the internet.

What You'll Learn:

  • How Corey fell in love with music and ended up majoring in music at North Texas
  • How not thriving within the formal structure of college pushed him towards one of his other loves, graphic design
  • How he ended up working with Seth Godin to run Squidoo, one of the most frequently visited websites in the world, when they didn't know each other beforehand
  • The importance of architecting a website when building it so you have a clear idea of how it is all going to function together
  • How he launched No Treble so he would have something waiting for him whenever his run at Squidoo ended
  • Why he worried entirely about content and traffic and not about monetization (and the parallels there with launching a podcast)
  • How he's monetized No Treble after the fact
  • How every time they hit a traffic benchmark at Squidoo Seth Godin challenged them to add a zero as their next goal
  • How he came to be in charge of the official Jaco Pastorius website (and why when given the chance to connect with someone you should just reach out)

Quotes:

  • "I wasn't good at this thing, and I wasn't good at this thing, and I was kind of good at this thing and then realized it was really hard. So instead of quitting, I just decided, 'I'm gonna practice my butt off'. And so I did and I started getting a lot better and then I started getting addicted to being better."
  • "I think the goal for every teacher is to teach your students to be their own teacher and there's no better way to do that than by listening to recordings of yourself. It's always humbling. No matter how well you are playing, it's always humbling because it never lies to you.”
  • "We've recorded several CD's of the percussion ensemble and it's amazing. We get in there to record and the red light goes on and they don't even flinch. You can take really good guys and put them in a recording situation and say you're rolling and all of sudden they (are freaking out.)"

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."

I think engaging in this continual improvement process is what really intrigues me."
