Helen Austin – A Music Licensing Success Story

I wanted to take a few minutes out of your weekend to share with you what I see as a very special story of an Artist in control of her career.
Nothing talks like success, but it comes in all shapes and sizes. In this case it comes in HELEN AUSTIN.
Helen found me on twitter and through delightful diligence we created a relationship. She happened to live in the area of Vancouver Island that I visited last week to speak. I find Helen’s story very inspiring and I wanted to share it with you all to demonstrate that her diligence is her success.
When she chose to take my GYML in Commercials Workshop (registration is open for a short time only), I decided to interview her for you guys to hear about career, from her.

    Look forward to work shoppin’ with you. I know the stats that there are more musicians than jobs but there should be a stat including musicians willing to put in the work rather than sitting around waiting to be discovered. Clearly Helen is a great example of the one willing to work. My gigs in TV series writing have really allowed me to write a track, or more, a day while in production. You really sharpen your skills by always writing. Sarah, love what you are doing.

    This was a great interview. Can’t wait to start the workshop with you. I’m past the point of wanting to license my music, I NEED to!

    Thanks for posting the interview. I loved it. Helen was very open and works her butt off. Hard working lady and so are you Sarah. I look forward to starting one of the workshops and working with you some day. Maybe I can start the next time. Thank you for the inspiration.
