Do you feel pulled in a million directions, overwhelmed with too many things to do and too little time to do them in? What if there was a way to be productive as a musician while staying sane? In this interview with productivity coach for music professionals Suzanne Paulinski we explore ways to slow down and prioritise self-care while getting things done. .  


Suzanne, founder of The Rock/Star Advocate, is a mindset and productivity coach for music professionals. With a degree in Music Business as well as a Master’s in Psychology, she thrives helping creatives reach their goals with custom goal-setting and time management solutions that enable them to gain clarity on their next steps while maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

She published her first book, The Rock/Star Life Planner, now in its 2021 edition, as a tool for creatives to find focus in their daily lives. Her teachings can be found in her podcast - The Music-Preneur Mindset - and her many guest posts for Rising Tide, Sonicbids, Thrive, Tunecore, and Soundfly.
