During the week I speak with several artist and I ask them what their goals are for their music careers, and they tell me that they hope to be #1 Recording artist someday.
Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news but to fill the shoes of a goal so important is you have to do the work. Nothing is overnight and everything that you are blessed with comes with the work of your hands.
Often I work with artist and they think all they have to is a few radio campaigns and they are going to be famous and truthfully it doesn’t work like that and it never has. There is a process to this let’s call it a blueprint and all you have to do is follow the blueprint.
Every now and then we hear of people in the music or another profession and you see people who been success stories from being YouTube or Twitter and discovered by a well known celebrity but that is once is a million.
You must apply yourself to enjoy the fruits out of life and be willing to take the advice at the time it is given.
The sad part about this is some of the women in the industry are willing to not take advice and go their own route without an income as an artist you can best forgot about it because you will need to invest your money regardless either that or find you an investor.
I recall having a conversation with a young lady and she told me hold on because she was putting her make up on. Honestly I thought she was an airhead. You couldn’t wait to put the makeup on?
I was giving the sista some serious advice and she kept on telling me about all the people she knew in the music business yet, apparently they didn’t have her best interest at heart or I wouldn’t be wasting my breath with this conversation.
This goes to show you that everybody is not ready for this business and oh yeah talk is cheap!
