Networking Isn't About Instant Gratification

Andrew Hitz

"Networking isn't about instant gratification. It is about fostering relationships over a career."
-Jeff Conner of Boston Brass from Episode 7 of The Entrepreneurial Musician

Networking is just like learning a really difficult recital program. It takes a plan and it takes having the discipline to execute that plan over the long haul.

A lot of musicians are good at networking. Not many are great.

That is an easy point of differentiation for anyone in the business who is willing to put in the effort.

The Entrepreneurial Musician is now posting weekly!

I will still be posting an interview every other week but the following week will now feature a very short episode with me discussing one of the topics the previous guest touched on.

For this week's episode, I am reflecting on Jeff Conner's comments on networking from Episode 7. Many musicians are good are networking but not a lot of them are great at networking so this is an opportunity for any of us to get a leg up on the competition.
