Is this one of those “Get Rich Quick” books?
Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick.
No, this isn’t one of those “Get Rich Quick” books. As mentioned before, this is not a scam and the only thing I can promise is that you may create better music and become more successful when applying the ideas, concepts, and recommendations in this manual.
You may become very wealthy if you’re doing everything right, but I can’t promise anything of course. If money is the only thing you’re after, then the music business isn’t for you anyway. In this case you should try to become a lawyer, a broker, an investor, or something similar instead. Or simply get a better job, or even a job at all. Or play the lottery.
Don’t make music to make money, because that’s not why you should be doing it. Have fun, be creative, and embrace the past.
–Robert Trujillo (Metallica, Suicidal Tendencies)
By the way:
You shouldn’t do it for the money.
Do it for the music, do it for fun. That’s the best way to make sure you’ll be focusing on the quality of your work, and this again will lead to more fans and to greater success.
