Here’s my last interview with Doak! And, I have to thank him once again for his generosity in giving so much of his time for these interviews, and for showing me around Nashville and Music Row.
On Monday, I talked to Doak Turner about his business venture the Nashville Muse. Below, our conversation continues with a discussion about his newest venture with his partner Will Carter: MusicStartsHere.org.
MusicStartsHere.org is Nashville’s GPs for the music industry. If you’re looking to break into country music, or just want to know more about how it’s done, whether you’re an artist, songwriter, musician, technician or in the industry, this is where you need to start.
All small businesses start with an idea, and the Nashville Muse is no different. From it’s humble beginnings as a simple email, Doak Turner has turned the Nashville Muse it one of the most important eZines in Nashville for singer’s, songwriter’s, and anyone else who wants to be plugged into what’s going on in the Nashville music scene.
Here’s my interview with Doak about how he got started, the challenges he overcame, like being accused of being a spammer by his ISP, and how hearing “No” as a salesperson helped make Nashville Muse a success. I especially like Doak’s definition of FEAR: False Elements Appearing Real.
Oh, and be sure to also check out the link below the interview for a peak at the video of Doak’s song Rocks in the River!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
May you all have a wonderful and loving Thanksgiving with all your families, the one you were born into and the one you made along the way. 🙂
Best wishes for an abundance of love, success and inspiration today and always!
