Learn Your Craft

“When you go after Ciroc vodka and Phat Farm and all that sh*t, God walks out of the room. I have never in my life made music for money or fame…No way. God walks out of the room when you’re thinking about money. You could spend a million dollars on a piano part and it won’t make you a million dollars back. That’s just not how it works….You’ve got to respect the gift God gave you by learning your craft.”
~ Quincy Jones

Some words I found to be inspiring from an amazing music producer that I think can be applied to any creative craft.

    1. That part got to me too. From my own experience it’s definitely true. I have to remind myself to focus on learning my craft and trust that the Spirit will take care of my financial needs. Too much focus on money is why I think there is decreasing quality in the Arts and so much destruction to the earth and humanity.
