Don’t fuckin’ tell me what I can’t do…

A recurring theme in my life lately. I have come from a working life in an industry where I always conformed…to working in an industry where nobody conforms…

I had a meeting this week in the International Financial Services Centre in Dublin where I spent probably a third of my life working. It was kind of gas really, I walked along the river to the meeting on a very sunny day and all I could think about was, ‘there has to be a blog post in this’..I even took a photo.

The fact that I was thinking about a blog post on the way to a meeting says everything really for me. I clearly wasn’t worried about the meeting. I clearly had time to think. And I clearly was happy in the career I have now chosen.

I work in a job now  in music where I can actually say ‘Don’t fuckin tell me what I can’t do’ , and at times I am told this right back at me in various ways when I try to push my own opinion across. The beauty of it is that I can say it, be told it, receive it and act on it.

I bring my corporate life into my music career. I worry about risks, I worry about perception, I worry about ticket and merch sales…but with all of that…

There are perks to working in an industry where nobody conforms. There is a respect for rebellion, there is a beauty in the rebellion, and there is a fuck it lets just fuckin’ do it mentality that moves mountains…

So yeah don’t fuckin’ tell me what I can’t do …because I love to move mountains and the music industry affords everybody that opportunity x
