Having always wanted to play live since I was kid but always being held back by work and people that would say “Your too old to play, be a responsible adult!.” Really?
I believe knowing what you love doing and following it is the key to a successful and happy life. If you have the drive and determination anything is possible. If you have negative people in your life that drag you down, remove them since they will only fill your mind with doubt and hold you back.
Seek out mentors, set goals for yourself and never give up and what you put into it you will get out of it and much more.
