cassandra smith From A Hobby to A Career

A lot of people have a talent that is not realized until someone inadvertently hear them play an instrument or sing a song and a light bulb goes off. Unfortunately, that’s where it generally stops because they do not know what step(s) to take next. This book is an excellent guide to taking the next from being a casual performer to building a career and enjoying the fruits of their labor.
