Musicians are often the envy of the working world, and for good reason. Seriously, can you think of a more entertaining career? I doubt it. Here are a few solid reasons why music makers have the greatest jobs ever.
- Gratification and recognition. Your fans and peers express true interest and appreciation.
- Acceptance. Everyone wants to be accepted and have a sense of belonging somewhere in the world. Musicians are no exception and the music world is a very large and diverse place.
- Set your own hours. No punching a clock here. Just show up and do what you love every day.
- Day-to day variety. Not looking at the same cubicle’s interior every day. Something new every single day and this is how great memories are made.
- Meet and hang out with other cool musicians. Musicians are by far the most creative people on the planet. It is how their brains literally work and makes them exceptional at their craft.
- Inspire others. We all are looking for some inspiration at times and many times listening to a certain song or watching a performer can trigger some great inspiring life moments.
