Self description

Male , 34

I'm a drummer, a musician in a band. I've been on tour, I've recorded two albums, I'm also a tutor. I've worked as pretty much everything, and run my own business from start to collapse! I've been in and out of love, I've dealt with death, abortion, arguments, losing friends and family, Loneliness, isolation, friendship, travel, being out on a limb, making a new path or taking one less trodden, I've made mistakes and far too many of them but I believe that has made me who I am and I want to share my experiences, not necessarily to prevent others from making mistakes but to perhaps help them apply their knowledge in a positive way.

Life experiences

Music

I live and breathe music. I know what it takes to get to be a touring artist and what steps need to be undertaken. I've done the rounds, been round the block, been on tour, and I know many people in the industry who have similar experiences under their belt. I'm familiar with the harsh realities of working in the industry but also the joy and freedom of expression it can bring. Any music related woes, let me know!

Love & Relationships

Each case is special, each situation is different, with many intricacies and twists and turns.

I've been there many many times myself, and can appreciate how hard it is to see a clear choice, let alone make that choice.

This aspect of life is one of those which I find hardest, and often there is nobody who can help me in the way that I need. I would hope that I can help others on this level.


Work & Business

I've run two businesses now, and have received help from many sources on what I should and shouldn't do. I've got myself in plenty of hot water and made costly mistakes so I'd like to pass this knowledge on to others.

I have particular experience of small startups, working in property and learning & development. I can offer advice on tax and what to do in many situations, how to file your paperwork and good ways of securing new business and not getting bogged down with costs too early.

Business doesn't have to be boring and a chore! :-D

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I want to join Horsesmouth because whenever I have needed advice in the past from somebody truly impartial in my life, I have been unable to find it, and in rare cases this has led to me making bad or ill informed decisions and has cost me either emotionally or financially. I would like to share my experiences with others, as I have often taken the path less travelled, or have made a stand in the face of adversity which has required great strength, often without support. I recognise that support can provide great strength to individuals...even if one acts purely as a sounding board, a place to offload and to have somebody lend an ear just to listen, this can make all the difference to somebodies day. That is my motivation, because nobody likes to be miserable and alone, least of all with no visible way of resolving inner conflict and turmoil. I want people to go to bed happy, and able to sleep, because so many times in the past I have not been able to for want of help or advice!

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
