Artists will tell how much they "want to make it" all the time, and they don't even have the nerve to invest in their craft to make sure they're actually giving themselves a fair shot to make it in the industry.
These same people would rather spend their money on a new phone or some booze at the club than save up and put into their so called 'dream' of a music career.
One of my favorite sayings is, "Don't do business with people who aren't about their business." If I come by an artist who keeps asking for free stuff all the time I don't even pay them any attention.
Why? Because I know that don't take their music seriously.
Music artists are quickly turning into panhandlers. Ask any successful entrepreneur out there how much they invested into their business and a ton of them will tell you their life savings.
Why is it that artists are the entrepreneurs who think that everything should be free all the time? Keep searching for everything to be free and giving yourself an excuse not to pay for it and see what happens. A $0 investment is sure to yield little results.
I'd rather spend $1000 and make $2000 than spend $0 and make $10 any day.
