Let’s Talk About Mental Health: Navigating Trust and Understanding Your Family History


So let's get started with mental health for today.


In reality, you cannot fully trust doctors, regardless of their profession. I am not saying that you cannot trust certain individuals, but the professional world as a whole cannot be completely relied upon. You must be in control and on top of your own life. While it is beneficial to have automation, technology, and additional resources to assist you, you ultimately need to be the one directing your own path. Take charge and be responsible. Don't let circumstances dictate your life.


Now, let's talk about understanding your family history as it relates to mental health. If you are an adopted child, a DNA test may be helpful or necessary in understanding your genetic background. For those who are not adopted, it can be more challenging, as it may require engaging in conversations with your family. This can be easy or difficult, depending on your personal circumstances. Regardless of how you approach it, it is important to discover your family's medical history, particularly if you are young. This knowledge will help you anticipate any potential health issues that may arise in the future and allow you to proactively manage them, saving you significant amounts of money in the long run.


I highly recommend taking the time to explore this aspect of your mental health journey.

Let's talk about Music: Navigating the New Era of Online Concerts


I'm really excited for an upcoming concert that will be held online. This will be my first online concert, so it's a new experience for me. I did have a test concert with my neighbor and family members, just to get a feel for it, but other than that, I haven't done a proper online concert. That's why I'm so thrilled about this opportunity and eager to kickstart it.


To prepare for it, I need to create a timeline. I'm not sure when I'll have that ready, but maybe I'll be inspired after the first concert. Once I have a benchmark, like the number of people who attended the first one, I'll have a good starting point to set expectations for the second and third concerts. It's important to have clear goals and expectations, while also allowing room for flexibility. I want to be able to adjust certain aspects as needed.

Let's talk about the Music Business: The Creative Journey of a Small Entrepreneur.


In the realm of the music business, my journey is currently anchored in the challenges and thrills of being a small entrepreneur. As I navigate my way through establishing my website and brand, I've realized the realities of expenditure versus income. At this stage, for every dollar I earn, I often spend ten. Yet, I remain optimistic. I've seen some musicians struggle with even steeper financial slopes, where the ratio is a dollar earned for every hundred spent.


But I pride myself on not being just an 'average musician.' My approach is unconventional. I embrace creative pursuits that many might not consider, constantly thinking outside the box. This creativity, I've found, isn't just about artistry—it's a revenue generator. If there's a takeaway from my experience in the music business, it's twofold: Creativity breeds revenue, and patience does too. Both are challenging attributes to cultivate and sustain, but their rewards can be unexpected and fulfilling.


Equally important to me are the principles of self-respect and self-love. Drawing from my personal experiences and passions, I've recently launched merchandise with a potent motivational message: "Self-love. Mind, Body, and Soul." It's a sentiment close to my heart and one that I often grapple with. This message is not just for others; it's a reminder for myself as well. In fact, I've proudly purchased the first piece from this line.


My journey in the music industry is not just about tunes and notes. It's about personal growth, resilience, and making a statement. And I believe in the power of creativity, patience, and self-love to guide me through.

Before You Go! Thank You!


Thank you for joining me on this journey through the interwoven worlds of mental health, music, and the music business. We've delved deep into the importance of understanding your family history for mental well-being, the exciting realm of online concerts, and the challenges and thrills of entrepreneurial endeavors in the music industry. My hope is that you've not only gained insight but also feel inspired to take charge of your own mental health journey, explore new musical horizons, and perhaps even think outside the box in your own creative pursuits. Remember, it's creativity, patience, and self-love that often pave the way to success and fulfillment.


If any of these topics resonated with you, I'd love for you to explore more, share your thoughts, or even join me in one of my upcoming online concerts. Let's keep the conversation going and continue to support one another in our respective journeys.
