About Latesunga
Joined August 2013
Hey from New Zealand!

My name's Lisa and I'm mum to "the bestest 12 year old boy in the world" :)
A lover of randomness, a chronic 'silver lining' seeker and recovering procrastinator, one of my passions at the moment is my band MERRIN, described as "An EXPLOSIVE cocktail of sultry, soul infused ROCK". Check us out on http://www.merrinaised.com and If you sign up for the newsletter, you'll get a free download of 'Fill the Need', a song about craving someone so bad you can almost taste them.

Shameless plug: Done - I've no regrets :D

I'm genuinely excited by what WA has to offer - I really feel like I've found a community I can thrive in while I'm working towards financial freedom. As a musician, that dream is GOLD. I randomly came across Steve from ivetriedthat.com and I couldn't believe how much of what he said resonated with what I've been wanting to do for ages ... and that's how I found myself here. Thanks Steve!

It's taken a couple of months to knuckle down, but I can't wait to get stuck in and find my way around. Looking forward to hearing from, reading about and interacting with everyone.

Big luvs and hugs!

Lis x

Latesunga's Goals 3
Money Goals
1. I'd be happy earning at least $800 a week, because I know I can live on that e.g. rent, power, food etc and be comfortably safe. Right now I'm living on less than that.
2. Earning more than 80k a year would be a dream come true. I'm a musician also, and knowing I can take care of my family AND play whenever I want because I WANT not HAVE to is something I'm aspiring to.
3. I know I can spend at least 5 hours a day on this to start with. The more I learn, the more I can apply and if I find I need to spend more time on it, I'll shift things round so I can.
1
Money I would be happy earning

Money I would be ecstatic earning

WoW, those are really good & level-headed goals latesunga. I wish you all the best!

My advice would be to focus on learning the process & building out your skillset. Don't focus on the $$$ part just yet (as crazy as that sounds) - that will come, if you apply yourself & follow the trainings.

All the best though.

Thanks for that MD! Like you, I also want to "master the skill of being able to construct, establish, & manage a site that consistently earns money" - that would be amazing.

Don't worry, the money side is a future goal. My immediate one is to learn the ropes so I have a good foundation. Nothing good has ever happened to me when I skipped the instructions lol :)

MD_Incognito Premium
HAH!! I can relate to that (TRUST ME). Yeah, I would say that slow and steady Wins the race. At first, absorbing all of the new info can be challenging. But with a little pluck, once you push past that point, you'll have a new skill under your belt that pays dividends.

Straight up - How cool is that?

I'm a geek - I LOVE research and learning stuff ESPECIALLY if it's interesting and is gonna benefit me so I have that on my side lol. My problem is that I'm easily distracted and can veer off into other directions only to find I have to backtrack.

I'm glad I found my way here though :)

You can do anything you set your mind to is what I have always said. Great goals to start with. Just apply yourself and I know you will reach the goals you set.

I want to be a musician too, it would be great to do what you love and earn money at the same time. I guess earning money isn't so much about loving it but the result of giving more of it out to people as a blessing as music or other free and loving sources, you know.

Love to hear more from you!

Nice goals, latesunga! I love the idea of making enough to support my hobby guilt free while supporting my family.

LEOnline Premium
Lisa, I like your mind-set. You are firm, but at the same time, when circumstances are changing, you are flexible. The only constant in our life is changes, and the law of attraction is superior over the gravity. Keep changing and attract the best into your life!
Reply
latesunga Premium
Thank you Bryan (Butters). Hey Lonny (Wanshin123), I like your sentiment re: giving more to people. And Andrea (Anwe), what I didn't mention is that alongside my son, Music is my life not my hobby. I'm a musician, tutor and anything else I'm able to be (for my band) according to my skill set - booking/marketing manager, media writer, DIY photoshop maker etc. I'm a 'works studiously in the background' type person. Alas, In New Zealand doing all this doesn't quantify into 'money' like it should so my dream is to keep doing what I'm doing (and more), but not have to worry about money :) And I like the 'firm but flexible' description Antoni (LEOnline), I'd never really thought of it that way. Thank you all for your supportive feedback <3

Hi Lisa.. Nice job on your website.. I think I know those bullies...lol
As far as playing at the mo... After years of cover bands, I'm taking a little hiatus and recording some drum tracks for a friend's original material.. Nice change from the bars I must say.. :)
Reply
latesunga Premium
haha, I'd be surprised if someone DIDN'T know those bullies :) I know right? Our drummer felt the same way. He's been playing covers for like the last 15 or so years and MERRIN is his first try at originals - and he's loving it. I've been doing both covers and originals for maybe 10 years :)

Hi Lisa.. Just wanted to say Hi from another rhythm section warrior.. (Drummer)
Looks like you're a little ahead of me here, so here's to picking up the beat and catching up.. On to the next lesson soon..
Heard one of the songs.. The band sounds great.. nice job all around!

Heya Ed - rhythm section warrior, I like that :)
I'm up to creating the content on my website - I see myself here for a little while, I'm a bit anal when it comes to writing stuff lol. Thanks for taking the time to listen, I appreciate it - so are you playing for anyone at the mo?

Hey Lisa, been listening more to your band, you guys are really tight. Your bass playing playing and backup singing is really good. I'm finding it hard on some songs at present to harmonise. Any suggestions on how I can get better at picking up harmonies. My problem is I don't play guitar or piano. In the past I've either sung solo or be been a lead singer, but that was quite some time ago. Any tips you could give me be appreciated.
Reply
latesunga Premium
Heya Torben, thanks for that, it took a lot of work to get that tight :) What's your musical background and how do you normally absorb information the best? Or better yet, what's your learning style? If I can pin point what you already know and how YOU learn, it'll give me a good idea as to what tips I can give you :)

Musical background - solely worship teams - drums and was worship leader of group musician /singers for about 8 years. Then didn't do anything for about 8 years and got back into worship team but was mainly singing in choir and backing vocalist with about 4 other backup singers. Then out of it for about 5 years and now back into it again but I'm the only backup vocalist to another male singer. We have bass player, drummer, keyboard player and several guitarists. Had singing lessons from 3 different teachers of last 20 years. Last one was more formal operatic type singing. This environment quite different to anything been in before. This more band environment. My learning style is mainly Kinesthetic/Auditory - don't read music, learn more through listening/singing. Generally can pick up melody and beat/rhythms very quickly in songs.
Can pretty much guess where a songs going melody wise first time hearing it.
I'm not a tenor more a baritone.
Struggling to harmonise in certain keys, especially the key of D. Just happen to be the keys the leading singer likes the most :-)
Bit different I suppose to environment where you singing your own songs. Don't get much time to actually practice with band. Maybe twice a month. Mainly having to pick up parts by listening to songs from original artists. Even then keys different. Definitely not the best way to do things.
