Jeri helped me to focus on what is achievable and reasonable
We are making progress, prices are where they need to be, we are booking shows and finding partnerships.
The Business practices of an independent artist is very important. Before The John-Paul Jones Group was even formed, I wanted to make sure I understood the music business. Jeri Goldstein's book, "How To Be Your Own Booking Agent," 1st edition, was the book of choice. First edition of the book was the start of knowledge, along with every reference recommended in the book. I have owned every edition including the current 4th edition.
I had the pleasure of being selected by Jeri, to work on my business plans for the John-Paul Jones Group. This was not a simple one-day seminar or phone call. It was an intense 12-month relationship from August 2017 to August 2018. Being a Midwestern Artist, I have learned the ins and outs of how the music industry here works, Jeri, however, brought a fresh, new prospective.
Although I had goals for the John-Paul Jones Group in its 20-year history…Jeri helped me to focus on what is achievable and reasonable. Even though her specialty is booking for independent artists, her knowledge, intuition, experience, and perspective helped me to really hone in on the markets where we can best benefit.
The year-long one-on-one mentorship would benefit any artist. But, be forewarned, if you want to get the most out of this training, you have to work hard and make progress each month on fine-tuning your…business operations. Jeri helps to keep you from floundering. She is always helpful via email. The training is worth every dollar….check out the programs she has to offer. If you contact Jeri, let her know the John-Paul Jones Group sent you.
