Confidence to be rejected
Got this one from Derek Sivers' website. Derek's an incredible guy who I had the honour to meet a couple of Big Sound Conferences ago. He knows what it takes to be in independent artist and delights in helping indies out - that's why he started CDBaby and HostBaby (and soon-to-be promobaby). Anyway, he blogged this statement, which I reckon is spot on:
"If you really believe in your music, have the confidence to put yourself into those places where MOST people get rejected.(radio, magazines, big venues, agents, managers, record labels, promoters...)"
I aspire to that confidence ...Posted by Hughie at September 24, 2007 5:46 PM
