Six-month plan

Posted by lrzberry on Sunday, March 8, 2009

I have a plan.  My last day at my part-time job is March 31st.  I have funds to last six months.  So I'm going to practice with the goal of learning back-up and learning to play with other musicians in the hopes that, at the end of six months, I can make $100 a week playing banjo.  I don't aspire to be a rock star.  I just want to make some extra cash doing something fun.  It will be interesting to see if I'll do it.  I can do it; there's no doubt about that.  But will I be disciplined enough to follow through.  (I have a home-based business that will probably conflict with practicing.)  It will be embarassing in six months to admit on BH that I didn't suceed, so that alone will motivate me some.

To go from novice to pro in 6 months is pretty ambitious, so don't be too hard on yourself!  It wasn't that long ago that the pros made $100/wk!

As you know by now Lori - practice time is 'ex'wife just couldn't understand why I had to play while we watched tv...especially with a business at home - you will have to have it on your lap, playing between transactions...ha!  Good luck and ultimately, you can do it!  tc.

Thanks for the encouragement, Tom.  I hoping that in six months I can carry my weight in the background and not get noticed much. 

The practice part is difficult for me because I like to go away by myself and get lost in it.  Unfortunatley, I live in a 900 sf house, and my husband is home as much as me.  He doesn't mind the practicing; in fact, he encourages it, but I'm conciencious.  I have a few hurdles to overcome.  I just need determination and dedication!
