From Incremental Progression

There are plenty of roles that will need fulfilling as you advance. If you could do some (or all) of these things yourself, you will save money at the expense of time unless you have already become proficient.

Having ‘a team’ appears to be of major concern. A lot of artist want others involved without having a clear explainable idea of what they want. Create the responsibilities your brand requires, then select who will fulfill these roles.

For example: If you don’t plan on doing many or any live performances, you may not need management as quickly as someone who does. If you don’t think you will feature yourself in your marketing, you will be looking for someone that can create imagery besides a photographer.

Ask a question. Suggest a topic. Introduce yourself.
