A Note from Cari:

blank

“As an artist myself I didn’t find success in the mainstream.

I found it in tuning into my unique strengths, following a topic I was passionate about, and finding a niche that would support my music.

I sold over 40,000 records as an independent artist, performed at prestigious venues like Carnegie Hall and Town Hall in New York City, and didn’t have to sell my soul to do it. So that’s why I’ve put everything I know about building an artist-based business into the Fast Forward Program + Blueprint.

The program is built from my signature way of working. It’s a method I’ve used with hundreds of artists that goes from the inside out to help them find their voices, power, and unstoppable brands. It’s all based on allowing your individuality to be expressed and then refining and amplifying your craft + image to make your music stand out from the crowd. This works for your business too.”

 

What Artists Are Saying:

Dan Orlando
“I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Cari Cole in a number of different capacities, but my role as her student has by far been the most rewarding. Like any great mentor, Cari consistently challenges me to go deeper into my craft, whether it be as a writer, performer or entrepreneur. She offers an unvarnished perspective designed to bring out the very best version of the artist in all of us, and delivers it in a way that makes you feel loved and believed in. Cari’s systems provide as unique an opportunity for artistic and personal growth as I’ve ever encountered. So much so that when I look back on the last three years leading up the release of my debut record, I consider this relationship to be the single biggest turning point of my career,and feel more prepared than ever to step into my artistic space.”

Katherine Moller
“Working with Cari Cole has changed my career! Before meeting her I was a moderately successful local musician who was trying to figure out how to move ahead. I am now taking myself more seriously and not asking for permission to succeed.  Through Fast Forward I learned how to up-level my on-line presence and present a unified brand across platforms maximizing results. Cari is a great mentor and inspiration!”

Beca
“When I started working with her last year, I was feeling overwhelmed with so many questions about how I should be focusing my energy. With Cari’s guidance and all the information she packed into her program, she really helped me figure out how to stay organized and build a team so I could focus on what I do best – making music…”

MY PERSONAL GUARANTEE!
I live what I teach. And this program MUST be life-changing and career-changing for you. Otherwise we’re not serving each other and changing the world are we? Join the program. When it starts, try it for 14 days (that’s 2 modules). Show up at the Q & A’s. Get everything you can. If you still don’t think I’m delivering massive value and high-level authentic success-bringing information, then you get a full refund, keep the downloaded materials from the 2 modules and I’ll still love you, anyway. However, I have to be honest; I do not want people in this course if you are on the fence about it. This is for artists who are truly inspired to making a change and bringing an improvement to how things are. So as long as you are committed to making a difference – one that will change your life and career – then hop on board. But we do know that things come up, so just in case, we will offer a full refund within 14 days of the program start. No questions asked. That’s how it works. It’s the way we run our businesses in an abundant world. So, dude, you have NOTHING to lose (well except for being a slave to your day job, or a victim to your career by not making a living. But hey, maybe you enjoy that!)

FAQ
Here are some of the questions we frequently get asked about the Fast Forward. It isn’t right for everyone so we’ll tell you the truth to help you make the right decision for you.

“When does the program start? And, I’m traveling for the next few months. What if I miss one of the calls?”

The first module of content is released the day the program starts. You’re busy – we get it. That’s why if you’re going on tour or you’ve got a ton going on, you don’t have to worry about missing out because you get lifetime access to Fast Forward. That means you can’t ever fall behind. You’ll learn at your own convenience on your own time and the training materials will be there for you as long as you need them. Our Group calls are usually in the evenings at 8 pm EST. If you can’t make a call, we’ll record if for you (and you can still submit your questions ahead of time).

“What if I live outside the United States? Can I still take this program?”

Yes you can! The program content is 100% digital. That means all you need is a computer and a phone to be in it. The entire program is available online or downloadable to your computer and viewable on your laptop, iPad or iPhone. This is a multimedia program that includes video, transcripts, worksheets and checklists, group & private one-on-one calls by phone or Skype.

“What if I don’t have music out yet? Will this help me anyway?”

This is a really great question. While the majority of the artists in the program have music out, some are in the recording or songwriting stages but want to get ahead of the curve in knowing what lies ahead once they are ready to release their record. And we say “yay” to them because too many artists wait until they have music out in the marketplace but then have no one to release it to. Fast Forward is perfect for you if you have music out in the marketplace and you want to learn the New Music Business Model Online and get on top of what’s happening now. Or it’s for you if you are almost ready to record (still writing songs but it’s flowing fast) or you are in the process of recording and need to start preparing and planning for your release (instead of waiting ‘til the last moment and no one to release it to because you were waiting – bad move but you won’t do that if you take this program ;) ). If you are just starting out as a performer, then this program is not right for you. The perfect program for you is the Step Up to the Spotlight Artist Development Program which teaches the Craft of being a singer-songwriter-performer and about the business and building your brand.

“I’m confused about what program is right for me!”

For aspiring artists who are in the development phase:

1. Step Up to the Spotlight: Kickstart Artist Development Program www.caricole.com/stepup. This is for the developing artist and is all about Craft and Career. How to be a great artist-singer-performer.

For independent artists looking to learn the new music business model:

2. Fast Forward Program & Blueprint: For Smart + Resourceful Musicians Who Want to Build A Brand and Make A Living From Their Music.  I hope that helps. Let us know if you have any questions. Watch the videos on the links above to get your questions answered. If you still have questions someone from our team can jump on the phone for a quick chat

“I’m so busy already. How much time do I need to do this?”
We’ve timed our program and found that on average, you’ll need about 2 hours a week to go through the core program materials. It’s okay to miss a week or two and catch up or work through at your own pace. Remember, you’re also getting access to bonus Accelerator Pack + Singers Gift Warmups as soon as your register so you can start right away. Many artists continue to use the invaluable resources in the program throughout their careers and record releases long after the program ends.

“Will it work for me? I’ve joined other programs before and I’m still in the exactly the same place as before. How is this different?”

No program works unless YOU work it and YOU get value out of it. If you’re expecting Fast Forward, or anything else, to magically solve your problems or make you money, please do not sign-up. You have to be ready to dive in and take responsibility for your career. This is not some “get rich” quick program. But just read what our Alumni say and you will see the tremendous value that is available to you. What makes this program different is that we actually show you “how” to uplevel your career. It’s mindset and tactical day to day stuff, plus the rich resource of worksheets and step-by-step guidance that gives results. We promise you will get absolutely the best resources on the planet, plus an incredible community of Fast Forwarders and Alumni who have seriously Fast Forwarded their careers as a result from the program.

That’s why you must agree upon registration to our 14 Day Refund Policy. In order to be eligible for a refund you MUST submit your completed homework for all available modules.

Why? Because we know that if you do the work, you will achieve results in your career and artist-based business. We’re challenging you to THINK differently, to behave differently and to become the awesome artist and musicpreneur you’re meant to be.

“Do I get access to the entire Fast Forward program all at once?”
No. The Fast Forward curriculum is carefully designed so that you complete each module and complete the corresponding worksheets and assignments in order. This is a proven program and it works best when you follow the system. If you’re the type of person who always wants to “jump ahead” and get to the “good stuff” because you “know all this already,” you’ll need to be patient. That kind of energy often misses things. The program is designed to maximize your results and long- term success. We would not have raving fans if this program was badly designed. Once you complete the full Fast Forward program, you’ll get lifetime access and can re-visit the modules in any order you like.

“How does the “group” stuff work? I’d rather have more one-on-one attention!"

One of the coolest things about this program is the online group forum and accountability partners you’ll get during the program. As I’ve shared we have a very active global community. You can contribute as much as you’d like or remain anonymous. Some Fast Forward participants fall in love with the online community and find it to be an invaluable piece they were not even expecting. While we encourage community and group sharing, we do not force that on you. I will say that through the Fast Forward community, artists have made connections and gotten answers from each other that made things happen in their careers.

“What if I’m more advanced and am already out there?”

If you already know in detail the New Music Business Model online and have implemented everything you know, then Fast Forward may not be right for you. Your best option would be to apply to work with Cari in her highly individualized coaching programs (available online or in person.) However, because of the intensity and graduate level of the program, and the unique aspect of finding your own artist path, some of our grads have been signed label artists, well-known managers and industry people, and a few well known artists. Artists in the program added anywhere from $15,000 to $60,000 to their business from what they learned in the program. Of course we cannot guarantee these or any results in your business, but these are examples of what can happen from some of our students.

“What if I’m not ready now? When will you be offering Fast Forward again?”
If you want to do this program, do it now. Think about it. There’s never a time in life when you’re ever truly “ready” to do anything. You will always be busy and always doubt your “readiness.” I honestly don’t know when or how we’ll offer Fast Forward again. After this program, we have other initiatives in our company that may take priority. So if you want in, do it now.

“What are the payment plans for Fast Forward?
Early enrollment starts 6-8 week prior to the program start – this is the best value. Early bird payments ($300 off) close a few weeks before the program starts, and you can either pay in full for $1197, or three monthly payments of $415. If you choose the payment plan, your first payment is charged the day you sign up and the other payments will be charged on the 1st of the next month of the next two months. Regular payments you can either pay in full for $1497, or three monthly payments of $515. If you choose the payment plan, your first payment is charged the day you sign up and the other payments will be charged on the 1st of the next month of the next two months. We do not offer any “special” or extended payment plans.

Paul Taneja, Pinto and the Bean
“Fast Forward is definitely the P90X of the independent music world. This is for any serious musician/band navigating their way through the current music industry. Cari’s program is incredibly intense and detailed; she’s totally on top of all trends so nothing is ever outdated in any of her material. I’ve never seen a program or book that gives musicians every single tool they need in order to find the success they’re searching for. In addition to the invaluable tools provided in FF2F, her program is awesome because, as musicians, we’re scatterbrained people and we need some guidance and help staying organized. Fast Forward teaches you exactly what to do to stay on top of things, with great step-by-step modules, which will help you reach wherever it is you’re going. By the time you finish this program, other musicians and bands in your music scene will be looking at you in a different way. You’ll have professionalism about you that I guarantee you didn’t have prior to joining this. You’ll be getting more gigs and more fans. It’s an intense program and I don’t advise any ole’ musician to join. This is for artists who are willing to put in the work.”

“I have since decided to move forward with Fast Forward and cannot say enough great things about Cari’s level of dedication to developing the complete artist, including the mindset piece that so many coaches fail to truly address, and Cari’s attention to detail regarding the technical ins and outs and day-to-day tasks of an artistbased business. There is truly no other program like this out there to educate and elevate independent artists. I can’t wait to delve into the rest of the program. I am setting up a vision board, a twelve to fourteen month calendar and taking this next year by storm. Thanks Cari for transforming my artist career!”

Andre Henry
“When I entered the Fast Forward (FF) program, I was seriously considering giving up on making music as a career. But, in a short time, I found myself more confident than I’ve ever been about building the type of career that suits me as an artist. Cari is wonderful coach who genuinely cares about the people she’s working with. She’s an honest critic, and the quintessential encourager–the rarest of combinations. FF took the fear-based mystery out my vocation as an artist; I didn’t need to find a way to make people–industry or otherwise–get what I was doing. I needed to get what I was doing, and lean into that. The modules in FF help clarified that for me–“what type of artist do I want to be?”, “how many fans do you want to have?”, etc. It helps make all that cloudy dreaminess turn to concrete goals and planning–clarity. I left this program with the one thing every artist needs–confidence.”
