We all think that the business industry is the only competitive industry but that is not true. Ask a leader of the entertainment world and you will learn that making a name for you there is not only hard but also requires a lot of time. You can’t become a superstar or a great singer overnight. Yes, you might get the exposure that you need after just one performance but that is only the start and once you start you can’t stop or take breaks because the others will be ready to take your place.
If you are new to the industry and don’t know much about it then it is best that you start listening to your superiors because you are going to need all the help that you can get. If you can’t find help in person then you can always hit the internet.
