From a stay-at-home dad to a lifestyle entrepreneur.
In 2010, I relocated with my family from the UK to Greece in the midst of the Greek crisis and in less than 6 months we lost our life savings in a brick and mortar business, which was meant to be the main source of income for our family. It was very hard to find a job as a foreigner with basic knowledge of the language, so my wife (being Greek) went to get a job while I stayed behind taking care of our daughter. I became what you’d call: Mr.Mom aka stay-at-home dad and although I didn’t know it at the time, it was the best that could ever happen to me.For the first time in my life I was with no money in the bank, a baby in the house and very little, to no time to do much about my situation. Or so I thought. The truth was, that I always wanted to work online, I just didn’t know how to get started.
AT MY LOWEST POINT I FOUND THE OPPORTUNITY TO START LICENSING MY MUSIC ONLINE.
After all, I just knew that if I use my knowledge and experience as a musician and producer, I could start earning money. So my journey began as an online music composer, selling my music in different marketplaces. I started to license my music to, not only TV and film, but also YouTubers, podcasters and content creators.
I was living my dream as a full-time music composer.
Soon after that I started the Stock Music Licensing YouTube channel sharing my experience which attracted other composers who wanted to do the same thing. I also launched The Stock Music Licensing Podcast, where I talked about music licensing and beyond. And just like that, I created the Stock Music Licensing Academy and became an educator sharing my knowledge and experience through online courses.
HERE’S THE TRUTH …
I AM NOT SPECIAL; BUT I AM PASSIONATE AND COMMITTED TO HELP, EDUCATE AND COACH OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.
My life, and the life of my family has changed because of my knowledge-based business.
The core of my beliefs are: if I can do this, so can you. You don’t need to have a lot of experience or to be the best in the world, you just need to be able to help others with the knowledge and experience that you have.
Whether you are a photographer, a chef, an English teacher, a coach or a musician, I will teach you how to monetise your passion and start an online business by teaching what you know. If this sounds like you, then you are in the right place.
