I went on a networking event with Simon on the Streets, a local charity that helps the homeless.
The presentation was by Tim Collins and he was speaking about the power of music – and how we don’t use it enough in business.
As a failed musician myself (I was supposed to be releasing bossa nova albums under a pseudonym whilst playing low key gigs in a thrash metal band at this point in my career) I completely agree.
Music is about communicating emotions, in a way that words alone can’t convey. And we can use that to express ourselves – especially as when you work for yourself, your business is basically an expression of you anyway.
So, as I write this, this is what’s going through my head write now. I think it’s quite apt.
