#5. They reach out themselves

Successful artists aren’t waiting around for their assistants and managers to do the work for them. In other words, successful artists are not lazy. They don’t sit around and ask anyone else to do the work they themselves need to do. It’s always good to have leverage, but no one is going to care about your success more than yourself. If that is the fact, you are in the wrong business. You need to care about yourself and your career more than anyone. Don’t wait on anyone, take your life in your own hands. Successful artists are always on their feet with or without a team.
