Hi! I've always lived by the mottos "Spread your risk" and "Make your own luck". The latter is basically the former when it comes to making a living through music in my opinion. Pretty much every composer I know doesn't compose full time unless they've put in a lot of work in years past. Personally I teach musical instruments and work as an engineer in a busy studio that does kids parties. The kids parties are basically glorified karaoke. It's definitely a laugh! Do you or how do you spread your risk when making a living in this industry?
