What can you do to best prepare for the process of doing revisions? What should you avoid doing? How can you avoid potentially being fired?
Think you know what revisions are all about and how to do them?
You might want to think again because it could be here that you are losing most of your jobs and clients.
Revisions are not just marching orders for you to complete. They are a "game" and affect your future gigs you get and where things go from here with your clients and their network.
You need to learn how to play this game.
It's very easy to giveaway information incorrectly during this process and end up in dire straits, either doing way too many revisions, or getting replaced partially or entirely and losing clients that you end up excusing as: "micro-managing megalomaniacs", so you can feel better about your loss. Truth is, you messed up, and in this class you'll find why out it was your fault that they became "bossy" and started to put their nose too far into your music.
Learn how to get it done, and get it done right. You need to know all about this, much more than you think.
