A vital takeaway from Marko’s advice is the importance of being goal-oriented. He emphasises the need to take a step back and reflect on what success in the music industry means to you, once you’ve outlined your goals he stresses the importance of getting to work. By focusing on these goals and maintaining a clear vision, you can overcome inevitable challenges and stay motivated.
Another critical piece of advice that Marko offers is the need to be a lifelong learner. The music industry is constantly evolving, and it’s essential to keep up with the current climate of the industry and the latest technologies. This means continually honing your craft and staying ahead of the curve to stand out from the competition.
In addition to being persistent and dedicated, managing your expectations is also vital to success. Marko outlines the importance of patience, discipline, and hard work, as success in the music industry, is rarely achieved overnight.
Marko also advises being proactive in building connections and relationships within the industry. By reaching out to people online, offering value to others, and building a good reputation, you can create a solid foundation for consistent work opportunities.
