What You'll Learn from Chrysanthe in TEM122:
Why the cost of being anything other than yourself is never worth it (and how she learned this through experience)
How assuming the three traditional paths for classical musicians were the only possible routes to success almost led her out of music altogether
How a regular customer at a restaurant where she waited tables ended up giving her the break of a lifetime in the music business
Why she found college much more rewarding after dropping out and coming back a little later in life
How she is able to kill it on Patreon (in spite of it not being as successful out of the gate as she thought it would be)
Why her fear of relying on others for all of her income inspired her to blaze her own path and start her Patreon
How Chrysanthe relies on multiple coaches to keep her career and life on track
Why batching and planning are the secrets to her time management success
