#182: Getting Hired and Fired from My First “Big” Gig

Drummer Daily Podcast

Today I’d thought I’d give you a peek into the internal struggle I went through when I got hired for my first “big-time” gig, and then got fired around a year later. I think the lessons I learned along the way can be helpful to you- whether you’re an aspiring pro drummer, or just want to be a great drummer on your own!

Daniel, you really hit on something here that I also experienced. Getting your identity wrapped up in your work is hard to recover from if/when things go wrong. As you are helping folks go pro, it would also be great to find ways to help others transition out and back to ‘normal’ life. Easier said than done, but great coaching opportunity. Thanks for the great podcasts.
