I haven’t had a weekend without work in years. I work for myself so there’s no break for me. How you run your business is up to you. However, if any of what we’ve presented to you in this blog speaks to you, we suspect you kinda dig hard work. And working for yourself is a big ass ball of hard work and a ton of stress. BUT, it’s the most gratifying work you’ll ever do. Because it’s yours. Take time before 2017 to go on ahead and start a business plan. Why not? The future is now!!
The biggest mistake artists make when it comes to procuring finances for their music ventures is the lack of a business plan. Artists and musicians must understand that music is a business and should run like one. Once you’ve decided that music is your business, you must set aside time from being creative to write out a solid business plan if you want to grow as a business, attract investors, increase your fan base, market and sell music, or launch a crowd funding campaign.

Remember, to take it seriously and slowly. This is your strategy but it’s a living document. You don’t have to have it be perfect because it will grow as your business grows. It’s just important to make sure you have something put together to get you started. Take yourself and your business seriously. Don’t be afraid of this part or put it off or worse, leave it for someone else to do. That’s a recipe for leaving lots of money on the table should you be successful. And you plan to be successful, right?
Go for it! 2017 is your year!!
