Episode Info:

Lots of people want to have a music career but they don’t follow through very much… in this episode, Grant talks to Chris Greenwood, aka Manafest, about how he almost gave up when he was racking up debt to be able to play live, just before blowing up in Japan; how he crowdfunded a book and an album, how’s it like touring the World and being paid for your art while keeping the spirits up in a gruelling schedule and creating an online course career in the process. He tells us what’s the main thing you have to overcome when creating your courses, what would he have done differently in both his businesses and how important it is to enjoy the journey while you’re at it.
