I ran into my professional twin on the internet. He did what I did, crafting custom-made songs to honor people. Like I did, he created songs for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, businesses, funerals, and many more scenarios where a song could touch hearts.
Several things besides the fact that he was my twin blew my mind.
Asking people who know well what I do to visit him and listen to his samples, they all said that his stuff didn’t come close to the ways that I crafted songs. I did not ask for comparisons, but they were abundantly given.
And why was I blown away?
1. This man charges $10,000 a song. I had been charging $500 for a killer tune. I’d record it at Tom Finch Recording Studio, and Tom would play two tracks of guitar. I love playing guitar, but Tom is a wizard and I love how the tunes come out with his mastery behind them. So my twin, Tiamo, helped me see that I had been sitting on my assets, dramatically undervaluing myself and undercharging for my creations. People pay big money for jewels and cars and such, and having a song that touches your heart for the rest of your life is so in that ball bark if not deeper and sweeter, certainly a one of a kind gift. I put myself in the hearts and minds of people who have had song portraits and have sent me kind words.
I read just a few of those words and took them in at a deeper level, then came up with a new price. I couldn’t sit right with $10, 000, but I did find out something I was comfortable with. Honestly, I am not comfortable with it yet, but I trust I’ll grow into it eventually. I came up with $1,997. I’ll grow into it!
I also am offering for people on my email list a special till the end of the year. You can get a song at my old price of $500 till the end of this year, 2021. So if you have ever considered getting a Song Portrait, now’s the time. Or at least soon.
