With Thanksgiving upon us I can’t think of anything more appropriate than today’s guest, Matthew Wadsworth.
Matt is an independent musician who has released 6 albums, written a book, built a million dollar internet business, and is currently training to set the world record for the longest blindfolded motorcycle jump.
Oh yeah… and he’s been blind since birth.
In the interview above Matt shares his story as well as a number of tips and strategies for succeeding as an independent musician.
He shares strategies for promoting live shows, finding joint venture partners and building your mailing list. As Matt astutely points out in the interview, “there’s never been a better time to promote your own stuff. Long gone are the days of big record companies and that kind of exclusivity.”
If nothing else Matt proves that the rest of us have no excuses at all.
Without the tool of site Matt has gone out there and done it. And he continues to push boundaries as is evident in his current goal of setting the record for the world’s longest blindfolded motorcycle jump.
