Getting Past What Currently Limits You In Your Music Career

Getting beyond the mediocre threshold as both an artist and a music business entrepreneur can be extremely challenging. There is lots of information out there about how to get lower and medium level gigs. There isn't a lot of information about how to get high level and quality gigs.
The simple fact of the matter is that an average and cookie cutter approach to your music career produces average results at best.

Here's my gig schedule from last year. This is only my national and international dates. This isn't including approx. 30 local gigs and 4 radio appearances.
Hopefully 2010 will be even better as I continue to learn and grow more as a musician, a music entrepreneur, and as a human being :)  I'm passionate to almost a fault on self improvement on all levels.  Never stop growing.
