Hi, I’m Ben Union. Welcome to my blog. When I was 10, I won an award writing about polar bears. Ever since then, I’ve been 100% interested in everything I have to say… and so can you! I’ve been a recording artist since I was 16, ordained as a minister at 18, and then decided to dive headlong into rock n roll in 2008. Since then, I’ve recorded multiple albums, toured much of the world, gigged at dives in the middle of nowhere all the way to sold out arena’s, and learned a thing or two about life along the way. I’m an entertainer-entrepreneur or “enter-preneur”. Here’s the spiel: I do not believe that life is about winning. I believe life is about helping others cross the finish line. I’m passionate about helping creatives uncover their purpose, find their solution and reach their destination. I’ve dedicated this blog to writing about my own journey and inspiring you on yours. I share the valuable lessons I've learned (and continue to learn) from life along the way. I also write a good deal about the “new music business" and give my insights pertaining to the running of a creative business. Whether you’re in the music business now or you dream about it, whether you’re passionate about following your dreams or you just desire to grow as an individual, this is the place for you. I typically post one blog per week with a large serving of inspiration, not to mention a good deal of humor. Take the plunge and subscribe up for my blogs. Join me, The Persevering Artist, on the journey. I know I can help you.
