How did you get your start in the industry? I'm only 16 but I already know I want to have my own record company / work in the music industry. What are your suggestions about what I can do now?
Well, first i would say research what you are about to get into. For me it was more interesting to see what peopl/companies did wrong instead of success stories. Find out what facet exactly you want to do in the Record Industry. Cd sales may be down, but merchandising, touring, managing, booking, and digital distribution is on the rise. Music will never go away, so just figure out how you fit into the puzzle. This might sound very general, but if you have another part this question, I'd love to elaborate.
