I have a brief update on my battle with Sony Music Group. Hint: I WON! Full Details on that in the next Episode. In this episode I want to tell you about a great 20 day challenge that starts on July 2, 2019. This is the brainchild of Adam Ivy, a guy that as a creative you should be following. This challenge is 20 days, five rules, and could make a huge difference in your life. I describe the challenge in this episode and I hope you join me in taking it on.Here is a video Adam did explaining the 20 Days of Focus ChallengeLet's do this! Opening by Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff Mark's Podcast and Website Mynsays.comsenatorjaiz.rocksinstagram.com/senatorjaiz facebook.com/senatorjaizopen.spotify.com/artist/6khocwq2Rd9aFvenCcizoo--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support

A couple of friends recently had trouble charging their iPhones, one even brought it to Apple and charged a lot. I have a hack that may help you if you have the same problem. Then, the Darkness! Not actual Darkness, but the band. I use them as an example of genre and how to produce music that is different from your current style.senatorjaiz.rocks instagram.com/senatorjaiz facebook.com/senatorjaiz open.spotify.com/artist/6khocwq2Rd9aFvenCcizoo--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support

Episode 18 The LAUNCH!

One of the coolest, and yet scariest, times for an artist is the launch. Setting your creations out to the world. I am facing that now with a new single coming out. Let's have a discussion of the launch. Also, I have my new song at the end. It is an industrial ambient song titles This Crawl.Pre-Save This Crawl on Spotify before it drops!Paul KyriaziPaul Kyriazi.comBond Life by Paul KyriaziOpening by Mark Yoshimoto NemcoffMark's Podcast and WebsiteMynsays.comsenatorjaiz.rocksinstagram.com/senatorjaizfacebook.com/senatorjaizopen.spotify.com/artist/6khocwq2Rd9aFvenCcizoo--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support
One of the worse things we as artists face is resistance, or obstacles, to creating our work. The crazy thing is as creatives we often manufacture our own resistance. Let's challenge each other to remove the resistance holding us back. Let me know how resistance has worked against you and any strategies you use to overcome these obstacles!Paul KyriaziPaul Kyriazi.comBond Life by Paul KyriaziSteven PressfieldThe War of ArtOpening by Mark Yoshimoto NemcoffMark's Podcast and WebsiteMynsays.comsenatorjaiz.rocksinstagram.com/senatorjaizfacebook.com/senatorjaizopen.spotify.com/artist/6khocwq2Rd9aFvenCcizoo--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support
In this episode I talk about something that often gets in the way of creating. I know it is common in musicians and such, but I don't know about other creative types. I am talking about the need for more gear. That one piece of gear that will complete you, or even getting so much gear you start to suffer from choice fatigue. I also talk about not letting the influence of others force you to go into gear acquisition mode to the detriment of your work.  Leave me a message for future shows and we can revisit this topic.Paul KyriaziPaul Kyriazi.comBond Life by Paul KyriaziOpening by Mark Yoshimoto NemcoffMark's Podcast and WebsiteMynsays.comsenatorjaiz.rocksinstagram.com/senatorjaizfacebook.com/senatorjaizopen.spotify.com/artist/6khocwq2Rd9aFvenCcizoo--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support

I recently had a challenge laid on me by success coach Martin Brossman. Part of that challenge is that I be transparent about what happens during the challenge.

It has been a while between episodes here. I went on a grand adventure, then life stepped in and i lost my inertia. It is hard to get back in motion once you have stopped moving. I talk about this in Episode 7.

I talk about how it is never too late to start with your art. Truth is, there is a point where it is too late, when you no longer have a pulse. I talk in this episode about a health scare that has put things into perspective.http://senatorjaiz.rocks http://instagram.com/senatorjaiz http://facebook.com/senatorjaiz http://open.spotify.com/artist/6khocwq2Rd9aFvenCcizoo--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support
As Creatives, we sometimes close ourselves off to the world under the guise of being busy and needing to focus to create. Then blocks form. In this episode I talk about the best way to fuel your creativity and get rid of blocks. Surround yourself with people that do what you do, hopefully even better than you at what you do.http://senatorjaiz.rocks http://instagram.com/senatorjaiz http://facebook.com/senatorjaiz http://open.spotify.com/artist/6khocwq2Rd9aFvenCcizoo --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support
In this artistic world we choose to live in people will often try to shoehorn you with their ideas of success. Never give into this. You know your goals, you know what you want to achieve. It is possible as an artist to live a successful life without the visible benchmarks others try to latch onto you such as radio play or gallery exhibits. Always define your success for yourself and work hard to achieve.http://senatorjaiz.rocks http://instagram.com/senatorjaiz http://facebook.com/senatorjaiz http://open.spotify.com/artist/6khocwq2Rd9aFvenCcizooThe Rick Barker MIB Podcasthttp://rickbarker.com/podcast/--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support
There will always be people more talented than you in the world. Never let this get you down. Only you can do you.

As a creative we want to be good and to be liked. This however can lead to bad consequences. You should always be your authentic self and play to your tribe. People will try to bring you down. Learn to ignore them and be the best YOU! Don’t feed the haters. Put in your work and grow your tribe.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diy-creative/support
