Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in music education but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dean Maser, Founder of Masertainment LLC, located in Nashville, TN, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Confidence Coaching for guitar players.

Tell us about yourself

As a late bloomer, I had to overcome numerous obstacles to focus solely on making music for a living. Along the way, I have had numerous coaches and mentors. The principles I learned from those amazing people have allowed me to turn my life around, and now I wish to help others do the same. Music is my raison d'être, and I have dedicated the rest of my life to writing, recording, performing music, and assisting others on their journey through coaching and mentorship.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I started two businesses so I wouldn't have to work a 9-5 job to support my music. I grew those businesses to over $100k/annually and now have successfully sold them to clear my plate for music and coaching.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Discipline + focus. When you get these two handled, the rest becomes much easier.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Find a business you LOVE to do.
  2. Get clear on your big-picture goal.
  3. Don't worry about the HOW of achieving it; just look at the Next Logical Step.
