Great Overall Book for Producers

This was a great all around book for producers and provides a lot of great motivational stories and inspiration from S1. I personally love that he’s from Texas too as I was able to make connections with a lot of the places and things he spoke about (especially towards the beginning of the book). The book is more about inspiration and telling his story on how he got to his place of success in life and how you can too, rather than giving you a bunch of tools and telling you of an exact process for success, which is perfectly okay. Just telling you what to expect. There were only two annoying things for me, in regards to the audible version. 1. The audio seemed to get very quiet at random times (and fairly often too) but maybe that was just an issues with my phone? Not too sure. 2. This is a bit “nit picky” but it (just slightly) annoyed me how often he would say the word “however” throughout the book. Maybe it was just in the unique way that he says the word or maybe he actually did just overuse that word, I’m not too sure but it did bug me a bit haha. At the end of the day, I understand that he’s a producer first and not a writer so I’ll definitely cut some slack on that one!

Overall, great read. I’d highly recommend it to aspiring producers and artists, or even entrepreneurs for that matter. Thanks for the inspiration and wise words S1!!

good listen while I did my 4mile jog

finished in a day. half at work during free extra time and the remainder after work during my jog session. pretty good read with a slow pace. enjoy stories that have an impact on everyone to where they can go back in time and remember where they were and what they were doing during the time that specific event took place

Amazing

I am extremely motivated and inspired after listening to this book on Audible. This book is an absolute must for music producers like myself who are trying to get into the music industry, but even more so this book is for people who are passionate about their dreams. I could write an essay long breaking down chapter by chapter but I want people to read this success story. I legit teared up reading this because in some instances it reminded me of my life and what I go through at times. It reminded me not to have self doubt and to remain confident despite any challenges that may come my way. We can obtain success through these four actions: pray, focus, plan, and execute. Thank you for sharing your story S1!
