If you aren’t in it for the long run, don’t even start (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)
This post loosely accompanies Gab & Jam, If you aren’t in it for the long run, don’t even start (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star) (video:https://bit.ly/255longhaulvid and podcast: https://bit.ly/255longhaulpod )
This idea has been brewing in us for a while, but listening to a recent episode of one of my favorite podcasts, Every Day is Saturday, re-iterated what we ALREADY believe.

While we KNOW it is quite a few folks’ goal to “go viral” and to have a gazillion fans and make so much money you could bathe in the first six months out of the gate with your music. However, we’re sorry—not sorry—to say that RARELY happens. That’s one of the BIGGEST gambles ever! That MAY be bad news for some, but it should ACTUALLY be an encouragement to folks who want to grow and sustain a music career over the long haul. That’s why we say, if you’re not prepared to work this thing for the next five or ten years, perhaps being a musical artist is NOT what you want. —You’d likely be better off heading to the casino instead. But what if you’re not SURE if you want to commit to making music, releasing music, and building a brand? Well, THIS episode is for you.
