Hello and welcome to my blog!
Firstly, I want to quickly point out that this blog post is an introduction to my whole blog and my future blog posts will be much more helpful, informative and "edutaining" (educational & entertaining).
So, name's Tom Hawk, I'm a songwriter, composer and entrepreneur from the United Kingdom.
I write songs for my personal brand as well as other artists (Patrick McDonagh), alongside studying full-time towards a BA Honours Degree in Songwriting.
I started composing music for trailers, games, films and TV earlier this year in February 2017, and I have since progressed massively, going through Hans Zimmer's masterclass training and 1-to-1 with private tutors, orchestrators and other industry professionals.
My entrepreneurial journey start in the summer of 2016 after completing the second year of my degree. I soon realised that if I wanted to make a living doing what I love (music), then I would have to learn about the modern music industry and how I can harness the power of social media to make a big impact. This all began with working on my mindset (I will talk about mindset training in a future blog posts) and learning as much as possible from major entrepreneurs such as Tony Robbins, Lewis Howes, Gary Vaynerchuck and Tai Lopez (again, I'll talk more about how they changed my life in future blog posts).
Throughout the early months of 2017, I invested in premium courses in order to learn about social media marketing, sales funnels, email marketing, the whole lot. Since learning these strategies and applying to my personal brand and business ventures, my life gradually began to get better and better. Now, that's not all financial related, that's also to do with mindset and appreciation of life. But I suddenly realised that I really CAN do what I love for a living with these incredible tools of our time.
I don't want this first blog to be too long and biographical (after all, that's what my website's 'About' page is for, right?) but I just wanted to quickly share who I am, what I'm about and what kind of content to expect in my upcoming blogs.
Let me know in the comments below what your favourite song/musical piece is, where you're from and what you would like to learn in my blogs - songwriting, composing, music marketing, personal branding, mindset, entrepreneurism, social media strategies, content creation, etc.
I look forward to hearing from you all soon!
