There actually is one true key to success and this is it.
1:20 - 95% of the music business makes it incredibly easy to get along with them all of the time but your reputation is based almost entirely on how you deal with the other 5%
3:57 - Why it's so important to hold your tongue (and why that is incredibly true with any kind of written communication which has no tone and usually lacks context)
6:35 - The Gary Vaynerchuck 51/49 Rule
7:50 - The tale of a chamber group who ignored the 51/49 Rule, went for short-term gains above everything else and how it ended (Spoiler Alert: It didn't end well)
11:34 - The best advice I ever received from anyone about getting along with other people
16:21 - The importance of remembering that whatever gig you are playing is always important to the person who hired you, no matter the circumstances of the gig
You can help me reach two specific goals I've set for TEM:
1. Help me get to $50 per episode on Patreon by pledging as little as $1 per episode to support the show: https://www.patreon.com/tempodcast
2. Help me get to my goal of 50 ratings at iTunes by leaving a rating and review.
And finally, a huge thank you to Parker Mouthpieces for providing the hosting for TEM.
