I came across an article I found to be extremely helpful for those of you that feel you have what it takes to make it.

I've been subscribed to email updates from our pals at MusicClout for quite a while now. They tend to blog on some pretty interesting stuff and this piece is no different.
Check it out and sound off in the comments if you have a different idea.
