Taking Care of Business

Taking care of business
Every day
Taking care of business
Every way
Yeah…are you taking care of your business?

Do you know how convoluted and messed up the music business is? Maybe you don’t because you’re thinking that, somehow, in some way, your information will magically get where it needs to go so your royalties can be tracked and money can come to you.

Your name isn’t David Copperfield and besides, magic takes hard work. Copperfield doesn’t walk onto a stage and POOF!, people and things appear and disappear. There are a lot of moving pieces behind the scenes. I friend of mine was invited from the audience to be part of a crowd disappearing act for one of Copperfield’s shows. He knows how it’s done. He is under agreement never to tell. And he won’t. I didn’t even ask.

Well, the music business is a like that, folks. There is a lot of behind the scenes stuff that you must do if you even want to have a hope and prayer of making a living.

Oh, wait…I can hear some folks saying it now. “But, I’m a star and I’ll soon have people to do that for me.”
