Some years ago, Ernie Halter wrote this short list on his website.  It’s now gone, but I saved you a copy 🙂

  1. Nobody Wants To Work With The A-hole.
  2. Stay Connected
  3. Be Reliable
  4. Time Is Money
  5. Get Paid
  6. Find a Mentor
  7. Persistance Without Harassment
  8. Never, Ever, Ever, Piss Off The Sound Guy
  9. Presentation Is Everything
  10. Luck Is When Preparation And Opportunity Meet

I remember thinking that, when I first saw it, that it doesn’t just apply to the music industry.
