Before even considering the music industry every artist needs to ask themselves one simple question. Am I in this for the money or the music? If the answer is money, then you better quit now!
If the answer is music then here are 5 tips on how to NOT fail as an artist.
1. CUT THE FAT
Get rid of all the people in your life who are not rooting for you. All those high school friends, drinking buddies etc. If they are not pushing you to win, get rid of them.
2. STAY IN THE ZONE
The only distraction in your life should be more music. When you are working on your music, throw that phone in the garbage, and turn off Wi-Fi if you can. If you are working on an important project let your parents know that you are well but will be missing from planet earth for the next couple of days.
3. GET YOUR MONEY
If you are a musician without a job there is no way in hell you will survive. So get a job! Find one with flexible hours and just cut your expenses to a minimum. It’s not that hard!...
