Discover 70 Ways to Monetize Your Music Career

Learn to Make Money From ALL Your Musical Activities

If you want to wake up every day happy that you get to work on music in various ways and  earn a decent living without a boss hovering over you every step of the way you might need some ideas on how to do so.

Let me give you 70 ideas on how to take your musical abilities and transform them into multiple business ventures that generate multiple streams of income.


Hi there, my name is Björgvin Benediktsson and I'm a musician, audio engineer and entrepreneur (Musicpreneur for short).

Let me tell you a story:

​The days of traditional work in the music industry is over. You won't apply for a job at Corporate Music Inc and get your dream job anymore.

You have to create it yourself. Sure, it's more of a hustle, but the hustle is so worth it.

There was a time I was a dirt poor student shoveling myself into debt with my student loans as I went through school.

What I learned in school wasn't how to play the game to get a job. I saw a lot of my fellow students scrambling to put their resume together so they could walk into corporate America and be told what to do for the rest of their lives.

What I learned from that experience is that you have to have an entrepreneurial mindset and a belief in yourself if you want any sense of career happiness.

While they tweaked the formatting on their resumes I studied other skills like how to improve and grow my own small music business I had created on the side. While they ​did mock interviews to prepare them for soul-sucking jobs I went to conferences and networked with people already working in the industry I wanted to work in. While they agonized over how much they would compromise on their dreams the thought never crossed my mind.

At that point I was already loving the start of my career:​

  • I sold my knowledge on how to record and produce music.
  • I played live shows multiple times a month for extra cash (not to mention all the fun it made me!)
  • I made money from recording artists in my home studio.

Those are just three of my income streams. Today I have about 7 - 10 income streams going on at any one time. That means that if one of them goes away I'll just have to buy a little less beer that week until I'm back on track.

But if one of those corporate monkeys I called classmates get fired? They're screwed.

Don't let that happen to you. Make a decision to follow your passion and do what makes you happy. You don't have to do it full-time to start (sometimes that's too risky), but make a conscious effort to build something you're proud of that you can put your own name on. ​

Let me give you 70 of my ideas so you can get started. Many of these ideas I use myself to make money, pay the bills and (most importantly) have fun.​
