We had the good fortune of connecting with WyattTroy Christensen and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi WyattTroy, do you disagree with some advice that is more or less universally accepted?
“You can either make business-related decisions, or you can make artistic/creative decisions.
But you can’t make both. They are at constant war with each other.”
This is a fallacy of immense proportions. Business and Art are not opposites. They are not enemies. They are two
sides of the same coin. They are two sides of the same sword. They are best friends, life-long companions that
crave each other. The synergistic energy between them is amazing!!
Bussiness will never reach its full potential without the artistic side. And the artistic side will never reach its full
potential without the business side.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
DAW Nation is a company that is dedicated to helping artists learn how to become full-time music
producers… by learning from full-time music producers. We partner with artists that currently have a thriving music
career and create courses/masterclasses that show their exact strategies and techniques that they are currently
using to crush it in the industry. Sound Design, arrangement, songwriting, mixing, mastering, marketing.. you name
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
First off, we would go to Southern Utah. It is (subjectively speaking… but pretty much objectively speaking) the
most beautiful place on the planet. We would eat stupid amounts of Thai food (Benja Thai in St. George, Utah is
the best). What would we do though? We would have a mastermind. We would look at what we were in our lives
with a fine-tooth comb and figure out where the biggest bottlenecks are. We would then set goals to figure out
how to reach the next level of potential. There is no site to see, no place to eat, no activity to do, no person to meet
that will have a lasting impact like a mastermind. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Shoutout to Russell Brunson, who is the most creative marketer of all time. Everything that I have learned that has
helped me grown my business so quickly is because of him. He owns a company called, “Clickfunnels” (which we
not only run all of our ads through but also run our entire website through!), and the “Funnel” idelogy has changed
my life forever. I have read his books 5-7 times each (There are 3 books in total).
