    93. Balancing Your Music and Money with Trevor Hall

    16 APR 2024 · Today we complete our inspiring conversation with the talented artist, Trevor Hall. We cover the money mindset journey and how it is possible to have a good relationship with it. Also, we see how Trevor is finding  a way to balance all the important things in his life including family, music, purpose and spirituality. Trevor Hall’s music is a blend of roots and folk music with touches of electronic elements, and is imbued with a deep love of Eastern Mysticism. This powerful symbiosis fostered a deep connectivity with his growing fan base and Trevor has quickly matured into a leader of a growing conscious musical community. Along with numerous pilgrimages to India, he has sold out the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre here in Colorado as a headliner and has also completed a series of sold-out international tours with artists such as Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Michael Franti, John Butler Trio, Matisyahu and many more… We hope you are inspired by our conversation to look at the balance of what things are most important to you and in your life. “Having the freedom to choose how I want to do things is magical but it doesn’t mean it’s easier” - Trevor Hall Action: - Use this as a reminder to pay attention to your relationship with money.  It is energy, neither good or bad.  What you and your emotions bring to it determines the rest.  We want the relationship to be healthy.  Not obsessive, not jealous, not fearful but Loving and inspired and abundant.
