Most people I meet have TOTALLY unrealistic expectations on time.
If you move to Nashville or LA or wherever and are not fully committed to give 10 years of full on hustling to your artist career or business, you friend might as well not even start that project.
It took me a good 7 years of trying different things in Nashville before I really found MY thing and another year before my company made a cent! And even with all the growth of my company, I'm still eating beans and rice.
Things take TIMMMEEEEEEE.
If you are going to complain, don't make it about how long it's taking. Most of you are still in your 20s...
So get back to work!
