#5. Make money and grind on your own
There is no better chance of getting a multi-million dollar recording deal than doing it already on your own. If you want labels to come crawling to your feet, you’ve got to be making more than a living on your own. When a label signs you, it’s similar to a company buying out another company. They see them making money, and they want to take over to make even more money, so they buy the company, just like how the label buys you. Companies don’t buy companies that are not profiting. If you want a sure shot major record deal, get out there and make your millions and show them why they should invest in you!
