Be truly independent.
All too often as independent artists we are dependent on a supporting cast. We need musicians because we can’t play our own music for a concert… We need help with putting together a concert playlist and transitions for the show… We need business managers because we can’t handle out product table on our own… We don’t have a website… We don’t have an electronic press kit… We don’t have head shots.
That’s not being independent.
What are you going to do when you get a call to go on a European tour but you can’t take anyone but you and a few singers?? Will you be able to go? Are you tour ready?
As the quote says, Success happens when opportunity meets preparedness. We have to get prepared to walk in the open doors. Get prepared for the opportunities you want God to give you. Put the infrastructure in place. Learn your business. Master your instrument. Learn how to put together an incredible concert – not just a church service but a truly artistic experience filled with the anointing and power of God.
You never want to have to turn down a huge opportunity because you can’t do it yourself. You don’t want to miss your chance because you’re not ready for it.
Get ready for the open door.
