Introducing the Bestie Membership

Music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was so ready to get my career started that I drove to Nashville the day after I graduated college. I knew nobody, didn’t have a place to live, knew nothing about the music industry, and definitely had no perspective jobs.

Fast forward 7 years and now I own my own business here in Nashville, and in looking to further my own personal network and support system I started Music Biz Besties. To say Music Biz Besties has grown beyond what I originally imagined it to be is an understatement. Today our Facebook group has thousands of members from all over the world and the way you all show up for each other inspires me on a daily basis.

Being a Bestie means encouraging others to go after their dreams... it means you have a safe space in the industry to ask for advice... and it means you understand that together we’re more powerful than we are individually.

At the beginning of the year I told you this was the year of “more” for Music Biz Besties. I’m so excited to continue to grow together, connect you with other members in ways that haven’t been done before, and take this community to the next level.

True success only comes when you’re willing and ready to put in the effort to show up consistently at your best. While the support of a community can definitely play a role in that, you also have to learn how to show up for you. Getting “more” out of your life and career starts with you… and that’s exactly why I’ve created the Bestie Membership.

But if I’ve learned anything from starting my own business, it’s that true success only comes when you’re willing and ready to put in the effort to show up consistently at your best. While the support of a community can definitely play a role in that, you also have to learn how to show up for you. Getting “more” out of your life and career starts with you… and that’s exactly why I’ve created the Bestie Membership.

Every month the Membership focuses on a different topic and includes various resources to help you gain clarity in specific aspects of your life and business so you can actually start taking action instead of continually wondering “what if?!” 

  • Workbooks
  • Videos
  • Live online workshops
  • Guest expert interviews

In addition to the monthly topic resources, when you join the membership you’ll get instant access to over $100 worth of products and courses I've created for my business, Designing the Row:

  • Monthly goal setting worksheet
  • Social media planner printable ($18 value)
  • Tour manager planner printable ($18 value)
  • Online marketing strategy lessons ($20 value)
  • Video tutorial course that will walk you through step by step on how to DIY your own website ($60 value)

I’ve been there... staying on a friend’s couch because I had no place to live in a new city with no connections and no clue how to get a job... but what I did (and still) have was the determination to make it work in the music business, and I’m pretty sure we have that last bit in common.

I know how hard it is not only to get started in this industry, but also to succeed. Music Biz Besties - this community and the resources I’ve created, are my way of giving you what I wish I’d had along the way. Wherever you are in your music journey, Music Biz Besties can meet you there.

I believe in you... so much! And because of that I’m hosting the first online Bestie Membership workshop on Monday (March 5), and I want you to be there. So start your free one week trial and I’ll see you in the Membership on Monday!
