The first thing most of us do when we take on a new task is to look for advise. But unfortunately the advice given to us sometimes can only be a half truth. Too many people still today see their fellow musicians as a competition in the music business. I am a strong believer in you get what you give, and believe you me, there is enough room in the music business for all of us.
But to hack through the minefield of information I recommend a different approach. Follow what others do, learn how they operate. And figure out what parts of their operation would translate to yours. This does not mean you should not take others advice when they offer it. But always remember to do your own research and walk your own path. Follow what others do, not necessarily what they say.
