Hi guys and gals,

thank you for checking out my Patreon page. Now that you're here, let me tell you why I'M here...

In 2012 I took a calculated risk and decided to set up my own online marketing business, not knowing for sure if I'd actually make any money from it. I worked seven days per week for nearly five years, only ever taking a FULL day off on Christmas Day and between 2012 and 2017 I thankfully made enough money from my efforts and dedication to be able to safely take ANOTHER calculated risk...

My second one was to follow my dream of becoming a full-time musician, which I did in the September of 2017. Initially I'd only planned to live stream my performances online, in the hope of making enough money in tips and from record sales to be able to pay my bills. Unfortunately however the slow start which I'd factored into my projections has gone on for longer than I'd anticipated and a recent unforeseen event enlightened me to the fact that live streaming alone is perhaps not a viable way to ensure that your books balance and your bills are paid if you're a musician.

So basically I'm here to supplement my income whilst I go out and look for gigs in my adopted home town of Arbroath in Scotland, so that my books balance and I no longer have to dip my hand in my savings account each week in order to get by and once I've got gigs, I'll be live streaming those too (as opposed to just live streaming my performances from home as I currently do).

Once my books balance I still intend to remain on Patreon. But any surplus income I make from it will be used to pay for things like investing in a sample pad (drum machine), so that I can add this to my live performance set up, which currently includes a microphone, an acoustic guitar and vocal harmoniser pedals which also have a built in live looping feature. The next investment I intend to make will be to purchase either an electric or a semi-acoustic guitar, so that I can switch between this and my acoustic guitar on some songs. I do already currently have a semi-acoustic guitar, but it's a Union Jack Epiphone Supernova. So basically a semi-acoustic guitar with a Union Jack (British flag) emblazoned on it, which I bought during my first thirty four years on this Earth when I lived in Windsor (near London). Which without getting dragged into a political discussion is not something I'm brave enough to play regularly in bars and clubs in Scotland. What with me having an English accent and what with there still being some ill-feeling towards the British institution from a minority of Scotland's overall population.

So basically any surplus income I make on here after I've balanced my books will stop me getting killed! Haha.

Thanks for your time folks! :-)
