First you need to ask yourself, “Is a life in music, what I really want?” The answer to this question might not be what family, friends, peers and spouses want. Think about what it takes to be successful in the world of music. Then ask yourself if the end results are worth the effort to get there? Much is required from those whom much is given. Another very important consideration is talent.
Once you have decided to make music your life, it’s becomes time for your master plan. Your master plan should be a series of attainable goals. Your career is a long journey that starts with a single step. In other words, YOU must take action. That first step should be toward changing you into the professional that you must be in tomorrow’s music business.
You will have to make sacrifices along the way. Success in any endeavor takes time and effort. It also takes smarts in managing your expenses and time. If you help yourself, others will help you along the way. Mentors will come your way to provide you skills, knowledge and support. The Universe will supply your needs along your journey as long as you do your part. You are the only one that can turn your dreams into reality.
