8: Create Human Connection & Get In Community

Nothing beats face-to-face networking. And nothing beats a friendly email or a phone call from someone who knows I am a busy person but who nevertheless wants something from me, and can ask for it in a clear, casual and, yes, compassionate way.

- Erik Philbrook

An artist alone is in trouble – an artist in a community of artists has a chance. If you approach people you meet be they musicians or music business people with an at- titude of “how can I help us” rather than “what can you do for me?” you will get much farther much faster.

15: Keep Good Company

Surround yourself both personally and professionally with people who will be straight with you. It is easy to lose the forest for the trees as an artist. You need people around you who you can trust and tell you when something you are doing isn’t working.

16: Have Humility

It’s great that you have made this jump into the music business as if there is a net to catch you (especially when most of us are uncertain if this net will ever appear) that said – admitting what you don’t know and identifying the things you aren’t good at will make you make the right decisions in your art and your business

If you aren’t keeping stock of what expenditures got you a worthwhile return you will run out of money even quicker than most.

99: Invest in Your Own Career to The Best of Your Ability

You need to spend a certain amount of money to appear professional so while barter- ing is encouraged if you have big gaping holes in your marketing material or image - spend the money on yourself. Be it a professional website, a well written bio, profes- sional sounding recordings, quality press photos etc.
