DEBUNKING THE "WHO YOU KNOW" MUSICIAN MYTH WITH SETH HANES
Tired of hearing that it’s all about “who you know” in the music industry? On today’s bonus episode of Season 3, we are joined by Seth Hanes – musician, marketing consultant, and author of Break Into the Scene.
Tune in to hear as we chat about networking, marketing, and how working musicians can grow their side hustle organically. We demystify the “who you know” myth by sharing tips and tricks on how to build your reputation so much that you’ll be the go-to musician to getting hired.

- What it means to create your own opportunities
- How to build relationships with the right people

- Identifying your “fishing holes” of where to market yourself
- When to say “no” to a gig

So whether you’re just starting out or you’re heavily involved as a musical entrepreneur, this quiz is designed to tell you:
