What Do You Need Most in Your Music Career?

Listening to an audio clip of Seth Godin’s  book, The Dip, he’s convinced me it’s time to quit. Just walk away from various things in my life that don’t work. I don’t need to try harder, work more hours, pay more people to tell me what to do. I need to quit doing what isn’t working and focus on what does.

As an indie musician, I suspect you might want to consider the same. One thing I’ve quit is listening to the industry telling me what needs to be done. If you’re tired of everyone telling you what you should be doing, just quit! Simple. When one door closes another opens.

Assuming you’ve decided to quit the toxic stuff…what wholesome, healthy things will replace it?  So I’m asking, sincerely…what do you need most in your career right now?

Is it management?

Is it artist development?

Is it a booking agent?

Someone to review your latest recording?

A photographer?

A writer?

An SEO manager?

A tour manager?

Something else?

Please feel free to write me at conbriopr@gmail.com or just leave your comment here,  and tell me what you really need in your career. When you live and breathe this stuff every day, it’s time to start thinking independently and decide for yourself what’s important.
