Under my false mindset of 'waiting' on my opportunities, a lot of precious time was wasted.
See, there was actually someone who offered to show me the ropes when I was struggling with my music. (I can't even remember the guys name anymore)
He had a good production business, and was offering tips for musicians to effectively market themselves to actually start seeing some real results. However, I never took the guy up on it.
I was a skeptic. Naturally, that's what humans do. You see something that someone claims will help, and you wonder if it will really work for you.
So, instead of taking him up on the offer, I continued to wallow in my minimally profitable music career. I would get sales here and there, but nothing significant.
Knowing what I know now; however, if I wouldn't have been so stubborn, I could have been writing this post to help out more artists 15 months ago!
