Being Discovered and Being Found. Hoping, waiting, wishing… Wrong! A By The Numbers Fall Book Tour Music Biz Video.
Taking the approach of waiting for the chance of being discovered and being found is one of the most devastating things you can do to your career. While you might here that one and a million story of it happening, basing the forward motion of your career on that is passive, submissive and foolish.
Take the initiative, bring the assertiveness, show the confidence and instead of waiting to for that whole being discovered thing to magically happen, go discover new opportunities to be seen and connect with that many more opportunities and people.
Instead of dreaming about being found, do your research to find avenues, people to help you, people you can help and ways you can find to move yourself forward toward your dreams.
Way too many musicians in cities like Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles, New York City think that giving a hundred percent means showing up at a couple open mics and being around the scene. The bulk of these people never were found and never were discovered and a great deal of that is on them.
Get out of the mindset of being discovered and being found and get in to the mindset of discovering new ways to connect and finding new people, new places to play and new opportunities. Your dreams deserve that, dont they?
