Are You Serious About Your Music Career?

August 12, 2014
Say "what" again.

Say “what” again.

There are two extremes of musicians: hobbyists and professionals.

I’d guess that a lot of us reading this would be like to be more like the latter but are much closer to the former.

First step. Get serious.

Are you serious about it? Do you want to one day be a full time musician?

Make that clear in your life.

 

Make choices based on that decision.

“Hm, I could work at Job A and have no time to do music but make bank. Or I could work at Job B, which pays less, but gives me plenty of time of flexibility to continually develop my music career.”

Job B is the obvious choice, but its sometimes the hard choice to make. You can also take out the word “Job” from that illustration and insert just about anything. Make the smart choice that’s better in the long term.

Be like Batman. He's so serious. Just ask the Joker.

Surround yourself with people who have the same goal as you. Not so you can compete, but so you can lean on each other.

Separate the wheat from the chaff.
