Look for adjacent opportunities

Look for adjacent opportunities.

When I first started touring with Jason Aldean, I reached out to university music programs in the cities of our tour dates. I offered to do free drum clinics the days of our shows.

I was going to be in town, had a masters degree in music, had experience teaching, and wanted to share what I had learned.

Doing that again and again over 14 years built my brand as an educator. Now leading clinics and camps is another segment of my overall business.


Polite Persistence

Outlive the competition.

When I first arrived in Nashville, people looked at me like, “Who is this kid?” Twenty-one years later I’m still here and I am performing in stadiums with Jason Aldean.

How? Polite persistence and tenacity. Every day.

And the more successful you become, the more you are bombarded with instant messages, voicemails, emails, Facebook messages, and texts. And they all want a reply NOW.

Dive in and prioritize.
