Katherine Forbes | Music Biz Besties

Hey, I'm Katherine, creator of Music Biz Besties... and I'm so glad you're here!

I'm going to take a wild guess that you’re reading this because you’re searching for the secret that’s going to take your music career to the next level. You’re eager to learn, and that’s great, but I’m here to tell you that you are the secret to your success. You're not going to find the answer in a blog or a video tutorial because your success depends on you taking action

Easier said than done, I know.

I moved to Nashville the day after I graduated college because I wanted to work in music and what better place to do that than in Music City, right? I grew up playing piano and knew from the very beginning that music would be part of my life forever... and I bet you've got that same passion.

When I first arrived I knew nothing... literally nothing about how the industry worked. But that passion and drive within me kept me going until I landed my first internship, and job, and then another job, and as I started my own business. Now I want to share what I know with you so you can fulfill your music career dreams.

I went from knowing nothing to running my own business in the industry.

So if you were nodding your head yes to the statements above and feeling like you're not sure how to start making contacts, you don't have enough experience,  you don't have the confidence to move forward, you're overwhelmed, or worry that you're just one of many... I'm here to tell you that your dreams are possible!  But, you have to kick that fear of failure aside and start doing the work.

That's where the Bestie Membership comes in. To be successful you have to work on yourself... (not on growing your Instagram following). The membership will help you grow your self-confidence, give you accountability, surround you with a supportive community, and of course - help you take inspired action towards your goals.

I can't wait to see what the new few months - and years - have in store for you!

I recently secured a paying job working with a musician [something that I've always wanted to do AND this will be the first client for my freelance biz that I just started :)!]. I have been working hard to help me get to this point, but I wouldn't have been able to do it all or do it so quickly and efficiently if it hadn't been for you and Music Biz Besties.
