Patience and Persistence Enjoying the Road to Success

In this, the second season of The Business Savvy Singer Podcast, we’ll continue to visit with professional singers and learn from their journeys, but we will also hear from professionals in areas that support Singers. Everything from recording your next project to securing good artist management to tour booking to contracts and so much more.

This week’s episode is on patience and persistence, a topic that resonates with anyone pursuing any kind of goal. We set our sights on our objectives, often expecting to achieve those objectives immediately and giving up if we aren’t immediately successful. This is often true of Singers. We want a successful singing career so badly. We work at it for a while and then, because it doesn’t come right away, we become discouraged, feeling that a singing career may not be for us.

Ed Wimp has been road manager for the famed R&B group Earth Wind and Fire. He has also been road manager for hip hop artist A$AP Rocky. He is the author of Building Fans Fame and Wealth; The 18 Revenue Streams of Music

In this keynote presentation, Attorney Ed Wimp talks about the importance of the two “P’s” in achieving any goal. Enjoy!
