Some years ago, Justin Bieber was another singer on YouTube trying to break into the music scene, and he did, alright.

You know that girl from the block? Well, her skit went viral and she just got contacted by Wendy Williams for a special On-Air appearance.

The entertainment industry is ridiculous [ahah, I don’t mean that in a bad way]! You never know what will happen the next minute. For example, see how Wizkid made so much money with his music business and start using it to make money this year too.

A business in this industry means that you follow the latest trends, build relationships on an ongoing basis and never, ever give up.

It also doesn’t matter which entertainment business idea you run with, you can benefit from this big advice.

My Big Advice

Get a mentor fast! Ideally, your mentor should be someone you look up to, with a certain level of achievement and has some contacts in the industry.

My second big advice would be to never release anything to the general public without getting quality feedback.
