What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?

If someone told us to save a ton of money, lol. Because marketing is the most costly part of the music. Especially being independent in the game. Also just to learn the business before maneuvering the game. Because it’s 5 percent music and 95 percent business of course.
