Learn about the music industry’s business side from basic accounting functions to dealing with orders and inventory—in short, making sure that enough copies of an attention-getting release are available to those who want them. The more you learn about these tasks, the more adept you become, and the closer you get to your executive production goals.
Never miss the chance to sharpen your communications skills—which will come in handy for numerous purposes—from editing artists’ biographies, for example, to preparing one-page sales sheets aimed at convincing retailers to stock a particular release. Style is typically the deciding factor in promotions, so make a point of understanding how it works in your particular arena.
This is partly true: We may be a product of our genes and our past, but similarly, dry pasta in a box is inedible – it’s hard, dry, and tasteless. That doesn’t mean that we can’t make something delicious out of it! Yes, we are all a bit screwed up, and we can look at our past and see why. However, with some understanding we can turn ourselves into miracle making machines. Not without effort, of course, but with the right kind of effort. We may struggle with procrastination because we’re not living life the way it’s meant to be lived, and that is in the flow. Living life in the flow happens when you believe you can have what you want. This can be an easy life: working for yourself, having a nice relationship, being fit and healthy, or anything else you desire. Struggle is just the opposite, and occurs when you want one thing, but your core beliefs go against it. You will constantly and fruitlessly struggle to get anywhere. So what are we to do? On one hand, we have this enormously capable side called the subconscious, but it seems to be doing more to mess up our lives than help us. We need to get the subconscious on our side. Once you start making progress there, procrastination (and other methods of self sabotage) will slowly melt away. Gaining cooperation from your subconscious is very powerful. Personally, I changed myself from a stressed-out freelancer running from job to job, to a financially independent writer. I did this by simply getting my subconscious on my side. There are two powerful methods of aligning what you believe with what you want. You have most likely heard of both of them because they have turned into new-age household phrases. They are powerful, and can produce unbelievable results if practiced regularly. They also don’t take long and are really easy to practice, which makes them ideal for procrastinators! The two methods are affirmations (things you say) and visualizations (things you imagine).
Study the artists you’d like to write for. Write songs you believe they would like to record, but do more than that. Examine an artist’s CDs. Look for information about who manages him, what record company he records for, and any other information that will give you somewhere to send your songs.
Always keep an eye on the future—executive producers must read people and situations more quickly than the public whose interests they try to serve. Few pundits, for example, gauged the role music videos would play in breaking new artists before the MTVrevolution took hold in the early 1980s.
I love the relationship that anyone has with music … because there’s something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It’s the best part of us probably?
