I really like this site – we mentioned another of his posts the other day.
In this one, he talks about taking action. Setting a goal for your band, researching it and making it happen. This is truly more achievable than ever in the modern world where everything you need to find out to make something happen is just a click away.
More accurately, they researched the who, what, when, where, and how to tour over there, came up with a plan, and executed it. They didn’t wait to be accepted as an opener, or look for showcases, or wait for some other opportunity to come along. They just knew what they wanted to do, researched how to do it, and did it.
Read the post here and be inspired.
And, since a lot of the post talks about making the most out of gig opportunities at conferences, I might as well point you to this post on Dave Cool’s site.
He’s giving away a free eBook about how to do just that!
This eBook is a comprehensive guide to making the most of a music conference. From pre-conference planning, showcasing and networking, to the post-conference follow-up, it offers a step-by-step look at the music conference experience and how to maximize it from a musician’s point of view.
