Nice tips i always had these
- branding (= your promo & presentation)
- networking (= your promo & presentation)
- plan --> maybe to be added!
...which books will you read
which software do you know in 1 year
how many songs will you have produces
how many gigs will you play on this year
This list is the truth, for sure. Though I wonder if a certain amount of 'sheer luck' may also be required. Promoting just the right part of your work, to the right people, at the right time. I wonder how many fantastic songs I have never heard on the radio as a result of not having this luck.
