VI. Your Role
There are so many roles you can play as an artist in music: writer, composer, performer, producer, collaborator, celebrity, business entrepreneur…
You’re very rarely a single one out of the list, so it’s healthy to reassess regularly where you stand within each of these roles: are you happy where you are, do you want to move a bit more into some other direction? Is the direction you’re taking a conscious decision of yours or are you being pushed or, worse, “cornered” into it?
There are different strategies and business models for the various roles, so make sure you act consciously and are happy with the direction you’re taking!
Moving and changing will take courage, but with every conscious decision you will get a bit closer to becoming a leader.
