ArtistsMBA Track 1 – Vision, Goals, Plan

The Shy Singer an Interview with Vikki Flawith

artists-marketing-business-academy-interview-with-expertsDebra was thrilled to interview singer/songwriter Vikki Flawith, former student at the Artists Marketing & Business Academy, Champion of the Creatively Introverted & Socially Terrified, opera-howling Blogger, procrastinating Painter, housework-hating Vocalist, power-napping Composer and Aquarian Cyber-Geek.

Vikki is a well-respected vocal teacher.  And she has signed multi-track deals with several music publishers.

 

Vikki says:
“My definition of success used to be pleasing everyone else and living my life according to what I thought they wanted so that they’d be pleased with me. Now I live my own life and my own dream.  In order to do this, I had to look deep inside, figure out my goal, and work steadily at the process of achieving it, over time. I had to understand my own operating system.  Being introverted isn’t a crime.  You just have to be more creative in marketing yourself and your art.”

In this interview, we explored:

  • How to make your introversion work for you
  • How to find your unique voice both in your art and in your marketing
  • Criticism vs critique, and how we talk to ourselves

And much more!  It was an enlightening and enjoyable conversation.

Goals That Get Results

Artists MBA, Foundation ProgramGoal setting is a skill critical to creating success in any area of your life. But expressing what you want in your life in a goal that really works can be a complex and challenging process.

Because its not just about writing what we want.  Setting goals brings up all kinds of challenges for people because of past failures and future uncertainties.

Trying to move forward without a goal creates confusion, overwhelm and burn-out.

“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.”
– Andrew Carnegie
