If you're serious about having a career in the Music & Entertainment Industry, prepare and commit 1000%. Remember, what you won't commit to, won't commit to you!
Understand, like any other industry, Music & Entertainment is a business. Whether you seek to work in front of the camera, on stage, or behind the scenes, you and your work are the product, and it has to be packaged and competitive to sell.
