This is an essential piece for all musicians to read and watch.

I’m loving Wesley Verhoeve’s blog as he writes posts that are just that bit more insightful than most. He doesn’t follow the herd.

This article asks whether you have it within you to make it as a musician.

Making it as a musician or a music business person takes a lot of patience, an incredible work ethic and the gift of being able to handle delayed gratification. Artists often put in a lot of time, and many years may pass before they move from a crappy apartment in a bad neighborhood, to a decent one in an ok neighborhood, to eventually a comfortable environment.

And, Wesley cites this video as putting it how it is. Watch it, but do read his article for the full DL.
