Growing your career through relationships

Making it in the industry means knowing how to make new connections and maintain positive relationships - a process that involves self-reflection, growth, & skill in communicating the value you deliver.

Damien has built & run indie labels, co-founded the Music Entrepreneur Club, and is now working with BeatStars. His career path has taught him how to reach out to folks he wants to work with and maintain those relationships in a mutually beneficial way over time. 





"You want people thinking about you when you're not in the room [because] this is a very difficult career path...

at the same time, you have to be thinking about other people."
