As a musician (probably you will argue this fact with me) the only option for me to make it in the Music Industry will be to go Self-Employed /Freelance. Being Self-Employed can give you freedom to do things in your own way, rather than being told by someone else, but at what price?

So let’s see what the mainstream of income is for a musician. It’s fairly obvious that this can be record sales, gigs and merchandise. It’s a long and difficult way for any musician to get to a level where he/she can enjoy a comfortable life. So let’s see what obstacles you should beat and what skills you need...
