Monthly Royalties thanks to Taxi

Postby AmandaJane » Tue Jan 03, 2017 8:28 am

I can remember how I used to read the 'Forwards' and 'Success Stories' sections of this forum a few years ago in 2014, and I'd dream about being able to contribute in maybe 5 or 6 years time, if I was lucky...

Since the beginning of 2014, 3 years ago, I have worked as hard as I can and learned as much as I can, to make what I do successful and professional (I write lyrics mainly). It's been an especially important dream to me, as I was/am unable to work in a 'normal' job anymore, and so was feeling worse than useless. In fact, in 2014 and at 53, for the first time in my life I had a dream for my future. I knew what I wanted to do.

Fast forward to 2016, and thanks to Taxi and it's members, I can now say that every month I get a statement from my PRO with royalties on it. OK, they are tiny royalties compared to many, but they ARE royalties :) Every 6 months or so I can see the progress in forwards, placements, and earnings, very clearly. And for me this is success, albeit small at this point, it's progress and affirmation to myself that I am doing the right things, bit by bit.

This is ALL due 100% to Michael and Taxi, both directly and indirectly. Thank you Taxi and Michael, thank you all the members who have helped me, and thank you all the Taxi members I co-write with :D

READ and TAKE PART in the Forum, WATCH Taxi tv, JOIN Taxi, SUBMIT tracks, TAKE ON BOARD feedback, INTERACT with other members and finally, ENJOY THE RIDE 8-)
Sláinte, Amanda
