I talk with my brother, Ryan McCabe, about making money with his music business.

Ryan is a talented pianist currently making money by playing various gigs for events and venues.

In this episode, we start off by discussing the difference between DBAs, LLCs, and S-Corporations.

Ryan is looking for other ways to monetize his piano-playing skills besides performances. We talk about creating and selling products, building an audience, staying consistent with output, and teaching what you know.

We cover course creation as well as how to validate your course idea before you make it—even if you don’t have much of an audience right now.

Finally, how soon should you try to monetize your audience? What is the golden ratio of giving vs. asking?
