TRADING IN "BIGGER, BETTER, MORE" FOR WHAT'S BEST with Clair Condit
S4E2: The Musician on Purpose Podcast
This week on The Musician on Purpose Podcast…
Co-host Clair Condit shares her personal story of how her “big career dream” changed not once, but twice, and the health-scare wake-up call that made her see things differently.
So, what happened, exactly? Let’s start with Big Dream #1.
Big Dream #1: becoming a professional orchestral oboist. This dream changed during her first semester at Indiana University when she realized there were other passions she missed (like writing and psychology) when she left them behind to only study music.
So, she added on a 2nd major in business/marketing and a minor in psychology, which lead her to…
Big Dream #2: working in marketing/communications for a major symphony orchestra.
Now, THIS was a great dream! And it’s a dream that became her reality for 3 years.
Until one day…she had her first panic attack.
This changed everything for Clair. The biggest change being that the “bigger, better, more” way of working she’d become accustomed to was no longer sustainable. She needed to make a change but feared that leaving work at the Symphony would be like closing the door forever on a “musical” career.
But what Clair quickly learned was that couldn’t have been further from the truth!
Tune in to this week’s episode to hear why taking the crazy leap that came next was one of the best things to ever happen to her.

Raise your hand if you hear the word “marketing” and your eyes begin to glaze over…

But here’s the truth: Knowing what stage of marketing you are in will help you market yourself confidently.
So whether you’re just starting out or you’re heavily involved as a musical entrepreneur, this quiz is designed to tell you:

b) What next steps you can take right now
