Beyond 10,000 Hours: Navigating Your Music Career

After you reach 10,000 hours of practice do you magically become the greatest music producer in the world or the most successful songwriter that ever lived? Most likely not. Travis explores the idea that mastering your craft is just the beginning of your music career.

Inspired by Jason Jaggard's book "Beyond High Performance" and the "10,000 Hours" concept made famous by Malcom Gladwell.
