So here's the deal. I finally sat down today and listed as much as I could think of that will go into this Christmas CD project and a Christmas Show Event. Someone asked me when and where this show will be. I love the enthusiasm! But as you will see by my charts - there is a lot that needs to happen between now and a show. Not to mention the funding that needs to happen. Basically, I need a miracle. Believe me, I am saving as much as I can of my own income toward this.
Just for perspective though - this will be my 7th CD project, along with 2 singles and a music video. Miracles do happen.
I googled 'making a business plan' today and based on some of the questions I found - here is what I have come up with so far. I have a lot of work ahead - finding a venue, calculating the costs, and oh yes - continuing to work on the music part of it all. If you see something on this list that you would love to help toward - let me know. It's going to be a long diet program with just one bite a day.
There will be more to add to the charts as I go - like travel expenses to TN where I do most of my work. But this will begin to give you an idea of what an independent musician faces.
