Here’s the real trick to the industry. Getting in, is the toughest part. I feel being a woman who has blonde hair and blue eyes, it’s extremely tough. Luckily for me, there are so many people who I’ve worked with, that really respect me. Thank. God.
Alright, when you make it past that point, what’s next. Sure it’s the college text book “You’ve got to have skills”, right …. Well maybe not necessarily. I will never sit here and say I know everything about merch, artist hospitality, production, transportation, you know it, I’m not sure about every aspect. Why, because I’m still learning. I need to. I don’t have all the skills I need. Not yet at least!
Someone once told me, half of the job is the job itself the other half is to be able to hang. I want to throw my input in there and saying “fake it til you make it” really has come a long way for me. Because sometimes having confidence is the key to success.Just don’t be a b*tch about it.
If there’s one thing I got from working Pilgrimage this weekend, I’ve really stepped up my game!
