What's your story?
Over the past few years I’ve been building my website design business, Designing the Row, my community for women in music, Music Biz Besties, and most recently I’ve gotten licensed as a real estate agent. During the process I’ve learned that stories are powerful. Stories are what connect us to each other. And what does everyone want? To feel like they belong.
I moved to Nashville the day after I graduated college because I wanted to start a career in the music industry. I didn’t know anyone, I’d never even been to visit, and I had no job or place to live. My husband (and his mom too) tells my story to everyone we meet. At first I was just like, “yeah whatever - not a big deal - other people have done the same.” I was missing the point though! We connect to stories not because they are unique, but because we can relate… or because we want to learn… or because we’re inspired… or because the story opens our eyes to what’s possible!
I launched a personal blog yesterday to tell more of my stories... but I also want to hear (and share) yours! Do you have a story about moving to a new city to start your career? A story about getting your first job in the music business? A story about starting your own business? A story about leaving everything behind to pursue music? Submit your story below for a chance to be featured here on the Music Biz Besties blog!
