What is the most common mistake most new performers make and what can they do to avoid it or fix it?
The biggest mistake new artists make is to assume that the first step in the process is getting an agent or a manager to take care of their career.
New artists need to take the time and develop their performance skills, the goals for their future and, determine how they want their career to progress.
In order to have a long and fruitful career, an artist must have a realistic picture of themselves as artists.
They must understand who their audience is and where to find them.
And they must allow themselves time to develop their skills, their professionalism and their fan base.
Concentrate your efforts on these factors, and you will be a more attractive prospect to any future professional team member like an agent or manager.
