Three Vital Things to Know Before You Can Succeed in the Music Business

We have a lot of new readers rolling through the site this week, so I thought I'd sum up my philosophy on how to make money making music. I just typed out a quick note to one of the members of our music business mentoring program that frames things up nicely...

The challenge with being a musician and trying to run a business is that you've got three masters to serve:

1) The music you want to make. 2) The fans you want to play to. 3) The ability to connect #1 and #2 profitably.

And when you're still trying to figure out #1 or #2, #3's really hard to come by.
