There's No “I” In Team: Make Better Music by Knowing When to Ask for Help

It can be scary to think about letting a stranger work on your music. What if they don’t share your vision? What about losing the feeling of accomplishment that you did all the work yourself?

Those are valid concerns – but that doesn’t mean they should stop you.

Building your creative team shouldn't be taken lightly, you need to do proper research and find people who will work well with you and understand how you want the project to turn out.

Ultimately, it's up to you to think “big picture” while letting experts do their job so your song or album comes out better than it would if you do everything alone.

Listen now to hear more about the advantages of hiring a team to work on your next project, so it can be your best release to date!

What you’ll learn:

  • Why you need to learn how to relinquish some control if you want to have the best product possible
  • Why teamwork makes the dream work
  • How pacing yourself lets you keep the mental bandwidth to complete your projects
  • How having a team working on your projects gives you a larger audience
  • Why segmenting your project into separate parts (with different people working on each part) results in a better end product
  • How you provide the ingredients, and a producer is the chef
  • Why your fans could be let down by poor quality products
  • How you can create your own graphic designs easily… But why it’s not always the right choice
  • How to be the best musician you can be
