I have been up all night composing music and studying a business proposal
I have been up all night composing music and studying a business proposal that was submitted by a social media peep who is a third party introduction through Facebook. I now follow the artist in Twitter. He's been in the industry for ten years and opened for people like Jay Z so I am trying to be very careful about my response concerning doing a possible joint venture.
I would like to participate but I don't know if I can because I am sufficiently obligated. I have to finish a new album, I am scouting locations for the film shoot, I am producing other recording artists and I have two gallery shows that require I finish a bunch of really cool portraits... I am also helping Alicia with her book while my editor is tapping her lovely fingernails on a table top across the country patiently waiting for those chapters of my book that I promised her (LOL).
Thus, my lack of sleep was a necessity because the artist deserves an answer and there are people and businesses waiting for a response...
I have a really wonderful creative circle that has declined to do this project for reasons that I will keep private. Because I trust their judgment, I must also respectfully decline, although I actually really really want to do it. I can't remember the last time I felt so conflicted... However, the first rule of putting a team of trusted advisers together is to actually trust them.
I entered the music industry in 2009 on a whim and embraced the creative process without really understanding the ramifications of creating a record label to park my personal musical catalog in. Intellectual property is the gift that keeps on giving so one should never squander their copyrights or delay managing the copyrights of others entrusted to them. It was a huge compliment to ask me to help manage and back a joint venture across recording labels, so I will treasure the experience of making the acquaintance of this artist. Yesterday's business meeting went well, although the vote to conserve the resources of my talented team to the original agendas at hand means I must now write up my notes and forward the reasons for the decision today.
I'm feeling kinda sad about that...
