An Uncommon Career as a D.I.Y. Musician
In 2005, Josh Phoenix, 25, sold cell phones by day and retreated to his home studio by night. This is a situation that many D.I.Y. musicians find themselves in. They have an unsexy job that pays the bills and when they return home, they create music they love.
Fast forward to today and Phoenix finds himself in a slightly different career. As time went on, he grew interested in digital photography and video editing.
Like recording, he mastered those fields too.
Now, he's still a musician, but he doesn't sell cell phones. Instead, he utilized his D.I.Y. skills and picked up a career helping realtors market million dollar homes.
Phoenix runs his own company called HD Estates. He makes compelling video tours of homes and scores them with his original music. Thus far, his efforts are working. Due to his films, someone bought a home that had never even visited.
The goal: to help realtors create marketing materials that set their homes apart from their competitors. Chances are, he still has a nice recording studio that he retreats to at home. He may not be solely working on his music and pursuing a career as a musician, but this uncommon D.I.Y. career has allowed him to use all the skills he learned as a musician, while still being a musican.
