51 | Making Money in the Music Industry – How I Made More Money in my Side Hustle than Day Job

This month I hit a massive milestone where I made more money in my business than I did in my day job. This is something I’ve been working towards for a long time. I’ve spent many years in jobs that were unfulfilling and now I am working for myself from home (or cafes, a park, wherever I like).

I now have the ability to design my day in the way I choose and for me, there is no other way I would have it, especially as I have a serious band and I’m focused on having success with. I don’t want an employer dictating whether my band can go on tour. I don’t want to feel so burned out from an unfulfilling job that I can’t be creative.

If you can relate to this and want to start or grow your business so that you can earn a living doing what you love, I would love to help you make that happen! I am happy to announce I’m now offering business coaching to musicians wanting to start or grow their side-hustle or anyone that want to learn how to make an impact in the scene and live life on their own terms.

If your band wants to work with me on your next release, hit me up via email too or Instagram – @monicastrut.
