How To Start Making Money In Your Music Career

by Tom Hess

Want to grow a flourishing music career but don't know how to make ends meet from music alone?

Don't worry – you're not alone. Tons of musicians are in this same position… and certainly it is very hard to pursue your musical goals if you are forced to work full-time at a job outside of music.

This is why your #1 priority should be to focus on making as much money through music.

When this is your objective, you are much more likely to have the time to do the things you want with your music career.

You also get much better music career opportunities that most people don't get and didn’t even know were out there.

Having the goal to earn as much money as possible in music makes you much more potentially valuable for bands, endorsement deals and music companies (or anyone else you may do business with).

Your mindset should be: “How can I make everything I do with others in this business as profitable as possible?”

Result From This Mindset: You get more attention from record companies, musical business gatekeepers, touring bands and others who are making big moves in this industry.

Compare this to musicians who do not try to make loads of money:

They usually don't care about adding value for other people they work with in this business. As a result, they don't get the same opportunities and struggle to even get their careers off the ground.
