You need to have a vision of what you want your career to look like. Where would you like to see yourself in one years time? Where you would like to see yourself in five years time? If you don’t have vision, you are wondering aimlessly in the dark.
But once you have vision of what you want your career to look like, it is time to focus that vision. Break it down to small steps. Figure out how to take those steps, and if you don’t know, figure out who does and how can you get them to show you how to take those steps. I am specifically using the word “show” here, as you want to be as independent as possible. It is tempting to get people to do things for you, but before you skip to this point, learn how to do them your self first. Otherwise you expose yourself to being scammed. There are enough people in the music business waiting to get their hands on your money.
Stay focused on your goal, and walk the walk. Don’t get others to do it for you.
