I know you just want to play music all day long. I know, that’s what I want as well. But I had the choice of keeping music as a hobby, or start treating it as a business. And there lies the difference of an amateur and professional. Professional is not scared to get their hands dirty in the business.
Educate your self. Learn how to make money from your music. Learn how to register your songs with royalties collection associations. How to deal with agents professionally, so they will want to book you again. Learn how to market your music online. The longer I am at this, the more I am reminded that there are no short cuts, you need to learn how to do it all your self first. And be nice, no body wants to work with an asshole!
