The fact that my audiobook is available on Audible is crazy exciting for me, because I am an Audible addict. I’ve had a gold monthly membership since 2014, which means I receive a credit to purchase a new audiobook every month. When I am driving, doing laundry, working out, grocery shopping, or engaged in anything else that doesn’t require full brain power, I am listening to an audiobook.
Since I know that many other music therapists, including my very own team at Music Therapy Connections, are also fans of learning through listening (both in audiobook and podcast form), turning Innovative Income for Music Therapists into an audiobook was a no-brainer.
Now that I’m almost two weeks out from the initial launch, I can happily say that my stress levels have drastically decreased, and I’ve been able to actually enjoy the fruits of my year-long labor (starting with the surprise party my amazing friends and husband organized the night of launch).
These are the words I wish someone would have told me early on in my music therapy career when I started a private practice in addition to my full-time direct service job, taking on so many clients that I ended up working 50+ clinical hours per week.
I knew even before I started my music therapy education that I was going to take the unconventional route. I’d already had plenty of practice at that, having completed my undergraduate education as a vocal performance major 3 semesters early in order to graduate and pursue my training as a music therapist.
Those 3 “P”s basically sum up the month of October for me! It’s been a busy one, between all the Halloween-related activities for my children, gigs I’ve played, and of course, the book I’ve been working on for the past 6 months.
Heading into October, I was worried about being able to accomplish everything I needed to do in between all of the events on my personal and professional calendar. Just opening the calendar app on my phone has been scarier than any Halloween movie — it’s packed with kids’ birthday parties (at least one every weekend!), school-sponsored events, local performances, family outings, mini deadlines related to my book, and of course, all of my responsibilities at my main gig, Music Therapy Connections.
