Monday Motivation - Madonna

Monday Motivation is back with yet another inspiring artist’s story!

Pop sensation Madonna, is today one of the most successful musicians in the world having sold more than 300 million records! However, fame did not come easy to her in any way!

After dropping out of college, Madonna moved to New York with $35 in her pocket and worked as a waitress at Dunkin’ Donuts to make ends meet while she pursued her craft as a dancer.

After collaborating with different bands and tasting failure there too, she decided to market herself as a solo act! She got onto recording her own demos and sent it to record labels all over, in the hope for an opportunity! She is  famously known to be rejected by Millennium Records President Jeremy Ienner who stated that while he enjoyed some of her music, she was “not ready yet” and he would “pass for now.”  This inturn motivated Madonna to not let go and just continue making music till she got where she wanted to be!

She went on to making music with club DJ Mark Kamins, who had links with Seymour Stein of Sire Records, who eventually signed her!

The rest, as they say, is history.
