Publisher's Summary

This book that I've written is a collection of proven strategies to maximize your success in the music industry presented to you in a no-BS, matter-of-fact manner.

I wanted to create a guide that I wished I had when I was coming up. The good thing for you is that I didn’t, because if I did, I wouldn’t have learned the many lessons and skills that have not only worked for me, but also for countless others who I have discovered, consulted, advised, or helped.

Throughout this book I’ll tell you stories that give you a priceless understanding of strategies that successful artists I’ve worked with, like DJ Snake, used to achieve tremendous success. I will tell you exactly what he did and how it worked. You’ll learn the tricks and traits that others I’ve worked with, from Big Sean, Diddy, to Pitbull, used that catapulted them to continued success.

This book will also help you make better decisions and avoid the dumbass mistakes I’ve made over the course of my 20 years in the music business and seen others make and still make over and over again.

Exactly what I needed

I'm so glad he read it himself. The info was fantastic but his tone really maximized the potential. This book snapped some very important things into place for me. 15 bucks... haha might as well have been free because the value to cost is that disproportionate.

Good book but it’s the beginning of a sales funnel

I really liked this book. It has good anecdotes and great advice. I definitely recommend this to read

Unfortunately, one thing rubbed me the wrong way.

The author withholds great advice that I think he should’ve just put in the book from the get get. Instead, he dangles the “carrot” to entice you to buy his $1000 course to obtain the info. I wouldn’t liked this book more if was also partially a sales pitch.

Reader Beware

First off, the book is very interesting and engaging. The author has a great voice and clearly knows what he is talking about. However, it seems as though if you want to get the full value out of this book you need to buy the author’s course. This being the case, it put sort of a sour taste in my mouth throughout the book, and while I respect the marketing grind, I feel like this is not the place to do it. A prime example of what I’m talking about is the fact that half of the chapters end abruptly at key points, perhaps to make the reader want more. But again, all this did was make me dislike the book. While there are definitely some great pieces of info and tips in here I would not recommend this book unless you have credits to throw away.

Sales pitch

I’m sorry but I’ve been through the ringer with enough click funnel influencers to not trust books like this.
Like those other info products, this book is a bit of a bait and switch, promising tips and tricks but then telling you to get the real info you need to buy a course. I don’t mind buying a course but this approach kills the credibility of this book/author for me personally.

Nothing but a promotional tool

This book is a combination of bragging plus name dropping put together with some self-help clichés with the sole purpose of promoting the author's course. Don't waste your time.
