    example: avicii was picked up from his manager when he was nothing. but by then avicii was producing big numbers and had a following online which made him different from everyone else. we're all good in our own right but all this took place when file sharing, blogs, and sites like youtube were not what they are today. this means anyone with a good beat could've made it since the net was the new format to create a fanbase. so artists like him really lucked in on that. fast forward to today. landing a manager with connections who needs new talent is like floridians waiting for it to snow so do not wait on it to happen. with that i say this to who ever is reading this, get your weight up and let them come to you. since i started to make far better sounding and conceptual music i have been getting looked at by folks with their own solidified labels wanting to own, sell, and play my music. this is the age where DIY will guarantee success for you without so much middlemen. but its all up to you and your business sense.

    That's good advice. The more you do for yourself the better.

    It's always best before trying to find a manager having enough business on your own that you would need a manager to help you keep things in order. Great tip!!
