No, you do not need better management.
No, you do not need a record label.
No, you do not need some radio or blogger to pick up your music.
These things have the possibility of helping, but they are ALL based on someone else's abilities. Not yours.
Do I know 'people'? Honestly, yes. I do 'know people'. That's why you see those celebrity faces on my testimonial page.
But if I'm to tell the truth, most of my success came from acquiring the right knowledge to run my music business. Knowledge that I had to search out myself because no major label people even know how to tell you to run an independent music career.
The only way they know accurately is the (low success percentage) major label route.
The cold truth is the chances of you finding someone to catapult you to success are so small it's not worth going that route either.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing bad about wanting to reach a lot of people with your music, but the ugly truth is the approach over 99% of aspiring artists are taking to the industry is completely screwed up.
