TEM144: Evolving career goals and finding your personal creative rhythm - A conversation with composer Dale Trumbore

Dale Trumbore is a Los Angeles-based composer, author and teacher.

What You'll Learn:

  • The very narrow definition of success Dale had for herself (with a self-imposed age limit!) and why she adapted that definition over time
  • How she moved to LA but deviated from her original plan of becoming a film music composer
  • Why creating your ideal community doesn't necessarily involve where you live any more because you can create that community online if you look in the right places
  • Why the uneven income of an entrepreneur meant she had to get good with managing her money at an early age
  • The time of day Dale is most productive and why she advocates for everyone to find their own personal creative rhythm
  • How she analyzes her past career goals in order to inform her new ones
  • Tips to make a great website (which Dale feels quite strongly about!)
  • How to craft a personal and relevant email when asking someone for something
  • The importance of developing your own creative process and how that helps you to ride out the rough patches
