Compass for Creatives2015-09-hillde-by-maerten-prins-5-small

Being an artist and having success is not as simple as you might think. As a successful artists, you live the dreams of many. They believe that you have to be happy all the time. And when you feel bad, you often hear that you shouldn’t complain, that you can still make a great piece of art about it.

When feeling bad, you need someone to comfort you, just like everyone else does. You inspire others, but you need to be inspired too.

In more than 22 years experience in the international live music industry, I’ve seen many artists drop out. Often it’s because of burnout. Every dropout artist leaves a void of his/her unique talent to inspire others.

Before I started in the music industry, I finished my MA in cultural psychology. Since 2012 I combine experience and knowledge in this blog, in lectures, in the mental coaching and training of artists.

Music shows us that there is more to this world than politics, economics and the daily rush we live in. Music shows us that we can connect, even if we speak different languages. Music is a shortcut to our emotions. Music is important to you, to me, to the world. That makes musicians important too. I care about musicians.

My passion is to help artists to inspire others. That is in booking concerts at Paperclip Agency. I also want to prevent them to drop out. That’s why I have developed a training program to avoid burnout. In an individual training you build your own Artist’s Burnout Defence Shield.

To make it even more comfortable for you, I give you a couple of choices.
You can choose if you want the training to be in English, Dutch or German.
You also have the choice to take the sessions face-to-face or with Skype.
