This week, I’m going a bit outside the music industry realm for a few quick links that I think can help with achieving your dreams no matter the specific occupation.

Super-ass cool productivity guy, Tim Ferriss wrote a post last year about test-driving your dream job. One of his many, (he’s a world-championship Tango dancer as well as Martial Artist) was the one in the post: Monkey Trainer. And he’s got the videos to prove it. One of my own, was a little less daring, but fun none-the-less when I hooked up with one of the best pastry chefs in Minneapolis, Minnesota to try my hand as a chef. Check out Tim’s post, I’m sure you’ll find it funny, if not enlightening.

Fellow music-crazed writer, Heather McDonald over at wrote a bevy of posts this week about a number of topics that might be of interest to you, including: the first part in a series about Long Lost Record labels, this year’s In The City music expo/conference/jam in the UK that offers a good excuse to hop on a plane and visit Europe this fall, and an interesting story covering feedback from users of Sonicbids.

Time for a link round-up of sorts. I’m going to aim to do this once a week, to help introduce everyone to some of the other cool articles out there on the web. Some people are quite prolific in their writing, and always saying great things you can learn from, so you’ll no doubt see some of the same names and sites repeated as time goes by – but that’s the nature of writing and writing well. You should get to know these folks as they’ll help you stay on top of your game throughout your entertainment career.
