This episode is inspired by 60 Days to Signable student Jeremy Miller who writes:

“I met Mike briefly at Launch Music Conference and I’m really excited for the 60 Days to Signable class coming up. I’ve noticed a lot of different “music business help” sources contradict others, and I hear a lot of different opinions on the state of the scene/industry and how to get “big” with your music. I get it, different tactics work for different people and like I’ve heard Mike say, that there’s exceptions to everything.

But I've personally noticed what works best is

  1. Having killer music, that's obviously the main thing.
  1. Always putting out consistent great content.
  1. Being fearless, persistent, but not a pest
  1. Realizing it takes time so be patient.
  1. Yes a bit of luck seems to be a factor for sure, but I truly feel like that seems to be the main mix for a successful path. 

I really think your podcast & things like Mike's outerloop coaching are great tools for people who are trying to make this their career. 

So basically I just want to say thank you. 

Keep up the awesome show & much respect to you both.”

 Mike and Blasko go through Jeremy’s list above, point by point to give listeners a deeper understanding of what they mean in terms of the industry. Also in this episode: Mike’s comments about his visit to Launch Music Conference –
