Only Solve Problems That You Have Right Now
If you don’t have any songs yet, you don’t need to worry about booking shows, or having a full band (if you’re solo), or what the artwork is going to be. Write some songs first.
If you only have three songs, don’t worry about booking festivals. You ain’t ready. Literally. Get your songs produced (professionally!!!). Figure out your branding. Get your website and image in order. Launch your songs on Spotify (with a plan!!!). Write more songs and repeat.
If you have a bunch of songs out, with momentum on Spotify, it might be time to outsource some of your PR work so you can scale. (Playlister/blogger email campaigns etc.)
You’ll be much more productive (and less frustrated) if you solve problems in the order they appear.
Think… “what’s the one thing I can do that will move the needle today? What’s the first thing in my way?” Then tackle that.
