I will simplify the content for you right here.
It all starts with planning, vision and strategy. Follow the dream with a lot of hard work, practice and mastering the craft.
Once you have adequately prepared and are committed to continuous growth, then get out there, audition, record, tour and promote yourself.
Now that you think you have it made, then you need to keep promoting yourself, network, find endorsements and diversify so you don’t have all your eggs in one basket.
Lastly you need to do all this while you try to have a life of your very own with personal relationships, avoiding addictions and finding a greater purpose to your existence.
Now that I have given you the gross outline, you will have to read this book for an immense wealth of detailed information that will prove useful for the beginners and Pros alike.
