I recently released my first guest blog with The Portfolio Composer. It’s about making your own opportunities and it’s specific to composers and musicians. You can read it here.
The conversation surrounding how to make it as an artist- 5-9, freelance, or something in between- is never ending. It is always changing. It’s also something you don’t do alone. Talk to you friends, colleagues, mentors. Learn what they are doing, how they do it, and what they did.
I am always up for conversation surround this topic. If there is one take home, other than my clever title, here it is:
Don’t sit and wait for opportunities to come. Don’t just apply for competitions and jobs and await your application results.
Get out there, be active, and make things happen on your own terms.
