Organize Your Band: Career Success in Music
When considering a career in music, it’s necessary to outline your personal definition of success. It’s a good idea to sit with pen and paper and define exactly what it is you are after and WHY. Success to some musicians can only be defined as selling a million records, limousines and an opulent lifestyle. If this is your definition of success in music, you might want to re-evaluate your career choice! I would never discourage anyone from dreaming big, but even those who have had it all often lose it all by not enforcing good business practices. Yes, this is music but it is also a business. It may not be like ANY OTHER BUSINESS but must be approached with the same concentration and dedication as any other career choice. We work within an industry where there is a 99.7 percent failure rate. A true logical reasonable WORKABLE definition of success at your launching point is crucial to survival within this industry.
