It is graduation time and all over the US, college and university students are walking down the aisle and moving on to grad schools, internships and other opportunities that are waiting for them. For some, this is also a time of uncertainty while they figure out the next step. Being a musician/artist is difficult. Not kind of difficult or even a little difficult, EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. I recently watched a video GaryVee posted on YouTube (What to do After College) where he talks about taking the next 5 years of your life to build your career path. It is all about the hustle! That means turn off Netflix/YouTube/SnapChat and make every minute count. Below are some other sources of inspiration. I hope you find them enriching as you grow and continue down your path. Good luck and please feel free to leave a comment if I can ever do anything for you.
