Turning a dream into reality requires more than hope and luck. Real success demands a valuable amount of time, discipline, visionary faith, and a cast-iron stomach for pain. A person can become a prisoner of their dreams and live in an alternate reality. Fantasies become roadmaps, which lead to a dead-end due to lack of education and precise business planning.
Creating, building, and running a potential multi-million-dollar enterprise is not for the light-hearted, and less than 2% of aspiring entrepreneurs survive and achieve success. Vulnerability is a beautiful emotion if you understand how to balance it against fear. Self-financing thoughts into reality is a risky business, and it at times requires a person to become a ‘lone wolf.’
As of 2017, artists only received 12% of the $43 billion generated in music. Artists learn a hard lesson of its 90% business and 10% music. Hip-Hop is the most coveted and #1 music genre worldwide. Millions of emerging artists embark on the unpredictable, dangerous, treacherous, and priceless journey of pursuing Hip-Hop immortality. Being led by passion, a large majority of artists integrate themselves amongst wolves posing as helpful shepherds.
The average artist invests thousands of dollars into marketing, promotion, radio, blogs, showcases, and more to build a solid music resume. Most artists never see a return on investment, lose faith, and allow their dreams to die. Against all odds, Indie Artist faces the most daring task in business. Imagine applying for a job and seeing a line outside of two million people waiting to apply. Stardom is the most pursued occupation globally, and people never cease in chasing amazing.
Only a select few focus on creating a rock-solid corporate and legal infrastructure that protects their future legacy. Educating themselves regarding trademarks, copyrights, intellectual property, music contracts, and more enables artists to indemnify their craft.
