In this blog, I want to highlight how I struggled to network in the music industry, how I overcame it, how you can too, and also the common mistakes I see time and time again from many DJs and Music Producers in Melbourne music industry.

This is a life skill that can be applied to any area of our life, and once we understand how to integrate it, expect some massive results you never thought would be possible.
