10/9: Money Transparency

Archaic business practices tell us not to discuss others wages and salaries. In the music business, it is important to know the going rates, get the money talk out of the way, and be ready to negotiate for what your time is worth. Let’s get comfortable talking about the details of our business. Hosted by @Adam Schumaker.
