… Especially women in rock ‘n’ roll and what they could write about. We are a force of nature.”
“I have truckloads of leather-bound journals. And when I’m long gone, my niece and all my fairy goddaughters will get to read about my songs and how they happened. They’ll have my whole life in their hands.”
What a gift that will be.
An artist who honoured her own voice, sometimes at great personal cost. She never wanted children of her own. Instead her nature chose to express her creativity through songwriting.
Great to see her back performing her music, and wearing her own clothes in the Elle shoot.
Although she was part of Fleetwood Mac, her voice both unified and also segregated her from the rest of the band.
Standing alone again, she unites the audience as she sings from her soul.
Online you have an opportunity to speak directly to your audience, so don’t screw it up by faking it, because people can tell if you aren’t being real and authentic. In this video I explain why authentic artist marketing is one of the keys to your success online.

Finding your voice is about doodling.
Yesterday I discovered the wonderful world of Hugh MacLeod, the author of the million dollar download book, How To Be Creative.
This is such a cool book, I wish I had written it myself … but hats off to Hugh for listening to his doodles. Seriously. He discovered his cartoon on the back of a biz card idea while doodling on a bar napkin. Which just proves one thing. When we stop pushing to be creative and allow ourselves to BE creative, guess what? We are creative! Yes, it works.
The coolest thing about Hugh is that he made his book available for free, and in giving this, he received not only a whole ton of traffic to his blog, but a community, an audience, a people to write to, and he’s inspired so many others through using his voice in this unique way.
In the words of Carly Simon: nobody does it better.
You are free also to share this link How To Be Creative with as many folks as you like. Enjoy.
What are you doodling today, and what are you giving?
