Now, Now, Now!

Happy New Year and best wishes to your health and happiness in 2016!

Yesterday, I listened to an episode of one of my favorite podcasts, the Tim Ferriss show.  His guest was Derek Sivers, founder of CD Baby.  In addition to talking about his life as a musician and circus performer, Mr. Sivers discusses the founding of CD Baby, a company that my brass quintet recently used to help distribute our new album, Inaugural.  Mr. Sivers presented a lot of interesting thoughts throughout the 2 hour episode, but I wanted to share one quick one that I found very intriguing and useful.

Mr. Sivers advocates the use of a "Now" page on personal websites.  He makes the point that most of us don't have time to keep people updated about our current work, in a general sense, nor are most social networks built for that.  If you're like me, you tend to tweet or post about the last good beer you had, or maybe something funny your kids said...

So, I have published my own NOW page!  I plan to only post things I'm currently working on, or have done recently.  So, I hope this might be a good way for us to keep up with each other, or at least for you to know what I'm up to!  If you have questions, drop me a line or post in the comments. 

I hope you have a happy and productive 2016, and please stay in touch!

Virtually yours,

Chris
