Four musicians had a dream. Their success will help you find yours.
Gus, Lin, Herman and Rash are four talented musicians playing Irish and Scottish music with a punk twist. They're nonconformists who've found their passion, but how will they make their dreams of big success a reality? Especially when scepticism, hostility and even physical violence are to beset their path?
The band must either persevere through the fire and emerge victorious . . . or fail and self-destruct among the flames. This stirring and suspenseful musical ride will appeal to all nonconformists, especially those with their own burning passion and the courage to pursue it. An action plan at the end of the book equips readers with the tools needed to find success and to withstand setbacks and failures.
Andy Beck is a devoted writer, musician and multilinguist. He believes that each and every one of us has a story; a deep passion that can guide us on a journey of self-discovery and growth towards the life we really want. Andy inspires others to walk this path via his writing, music, social media content, public speaking and coaching.
In his twenties, Andy struggled to break the mental hold that the scripted, 9-to-5 lifestyle has over many of us. Now, Andy currently works a job with reduced hours, which pays the bills but frees up the time and energy required for his written and musical work. His writing conveys a positive, yet practical message to assist others in finding their own passion, getting the right people on their side, targeting their audience correctly, and getting paid to do it.
Andy and his amazing wife Kerstin split their time between Glasgow, Scotland and Maidstone, England.
