Why The Music Industry Should Be More Like a Community, Not a Competition

I used to see other people in my industry as a threat. And it turned me into a bit of a jerk.

But I eventually flipped the script and became a champion of others rather than just viewing them as the competition. I guess I’m still a jerk, but I’ve made a lot of progress (yep, it really was that bad).

So to build on this, I’m focusing on community over competition in 2023. And I’ve distilled my experience into 5 tips to help you stop seeing other people as the competition and start celebrating them as part of your community.
