Nothing can steer an artist off course quicker than constant rejection. It’s the fuel for procrastination and leads to the most dangerous thing, "self-doubt." However, you don’t have to suffer from the same downward spiral anymore. In this extended discussion between Tim Sweeney and John Dawes (co-authors of The Complete Guide to Internet Promotion for Musicians, Artists & Songwriters and Using Email Effectively as an Artist or Songwriter) you will learn the philosophy and strategies taught to only a handful of the most successful artists in the industry, some of which may be your musical influences.

In Growing Thicker Skin: Learning How to Handle Rejection as an Artist, you’ll learn how to move forward from being an artist that is tormented by self-doubt to one that is "self-sufficient." Here is what this candid conversation between Tim Sweeney and John Dawes covers:

1. Clues on how the image presented in your promotional materials leads to industry pros ignoring you and not returning phone calls and emails.
2. The correct way to present yourself before, during and after live shows.
3. What being in the "public eye" really means and what you may perceive to be rejection is nothing more than you reaching out to the wrong audience or not communicating correctly to industry and fans.
4. How your decision to accept rejection causes self-doubt, when in reality, rejection can be used to your benefit.
5. How your web site can be a great cause of rejection online as well as offline.
6. How to grow "thicker skin" by defining what being "popular" really means to you.
