Jessie Goergen - GenY Success ShowAbout This Episode

Click To Retweet: “The mindset I’ve always had is: ‘What’s the worst that could happen? They say no?'”

Jessie Goergen is a Brookings, Oregon native who has been singing since she could talk. She moved out to Nashville a little over a year ago and is currently working with Gretchen Wilson to help with writing, recording and producing her new debut album.

I had Jessie on the show because being a musician is a lot like running a small business. She shares her mindset around hustling for opportunities, self promotion and how to put together a successful Kickstarter campaign. She’s raised over $20,000 in just a few weeks and has a ton of great tips to share!
