    #1 indeed, it's a very different game today, and the biggest difference is probably what you said: artists need to take responsibility for everything that concerns their career (although it can also be tiresome at times).

    I like the part of the article that says

    "For those lucky few rising to the top, i.e., artists who have mastered the “dark arts” of social media marketing, they can take significant control of their lives and livelihood."

    Artists are personal brands, there is no question about that and while not all personal brands need be artists, there has to be an artistic dimension to that brand.

    For artists the measure is not the quality of their personal branding efforts but as the article says the mastering the dark arts of social media marketing - and here it is understanding the analytics component, which enables someone like a Gary Vaynerchuk to represent an artist because he understands how the data analytics work and how pay is measured with play.

    It is a totally different ball-game and the artists today are the pioneers of the way artists take control of their brand and more importantly their business.

    We get so enamoured by terms like personal brand and social media marketing that we forget that this is just an element of an artist running their own business and what an artist outsources so they can concentrate on the chief value add that best serves their time.

    @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA Thank you for a thought provoking post Chris. All the better for setting it against the song of Seger which is a favorite of mine. Can we eliminate the negative and use only that which propels us positively forward? My two cents would be that yes, but not at a point in time. It is a continual effort and re-setting of the internal compass to destinies yearned for. It is a shaping of the voyage rather than a change in course and an ongoing lightening of the boat to sail more surely in the swells and stills of the sea of life.

Sometimes we need a person or a thing in your case music to filter through those obstacles and help us breaks those walls we have built up only if only wish we realise that's invisible. A figmant of imagination built by those negative experiences. Let the music bring the goodness in you. Keep buzzing 🤗🤗

    Dear @ Chris Guest - great post and good on you for wanting to explore your creativity through music and analogy and story. To answer your question re filters requires a longer post. But quickly, thete is gold to be found within what may have occurred that we call negative. Of course we need to discern how to move away from abuse, but events in life with people that may surface conflict are often a pond to swim in for awhile, to clean away the murky waters, find the gold and sense the transformation from within and without. Great topic for another post.

    "Against the Wind" awesome song. I believe the song certainly speaks to life's push. But I think the real element is desire. A heart that desires is a motivated heart.

    The reward is less climactic than the desire

    Desire ignores negatives and pursues the goal

    Glad @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee brought your post to my attention @Chris Guest. I echo the comments from your readers, especially @David Navarro López and @Susan 🐝 Rooks. From my perspective, filtering, as in protection against something "toxic" is important, but "negative" doesn't necessarily mean harmful. As difficult as it may be to have the negative experience, used wisely, it sure can make us learn about how to enable future positives.

    For me, the most interesting part was at the end, with your brief mention of filters, @Chris Guest. These words " . . . is possible to condition the mind to retain only the positive in life and leave the rest behind?" got me thinking about only remembering the positives, and I realized I don't want to totally forget the negatives. I don't want to focus on them, but I think I have learned more from them than from the positives, given the pain that negatives can cause. Who wants to repeat pain?

    A really good post, and I'm glad I found it, even though I don't know how. Maybe I saw @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee's share? If so, thanks, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee!
