174: About Your Beliefs…

Did you know that you get most of the beliefs that dictate your day-to-day behavior from the ages of 1-7 years old?

Your beliefs on self-worth, money, religion, trust, love, sex, success, value, etc. heavily influence every decision you make in your life as a person, a friend, an employee, a parent, a partner, a songwriter, and as an artist.

When was the last time you reexamined these beliefs to see if they’re still serving you well?

SPOILER ALERT: Johnny & Brent may press on some emotional bruises, scrape off a scab or two, and maybe encourage you to dig up some of your old baggage to explore if certain beliefs are holding you back from becoming the professional artist, musician, and/or songwriter you want to be.  

PS: What if your songs are amazing but nobody is listening to them because your strategy needs to be refined? Schedule a consultation call today and you’ll see an immediate improvement gaining loyal fans consistently. Email us at and put CONSULTATION in the subject line.
