Here's episode 13: Networking - The Good and the Ugly

Networking: how to do it and how NOT to do it. This is all based on an experience I had THIS week with someone on Facebook in one of the music/composing/audio nerd FB groups I take part in. Note: It wasn't from Business Skills for Composers. Some good lessons here that we could all learn from. Check it out.

For sure! And I've found that when I have a sudden deadline (high pressure job) my focus and intensity really kick into gear. But there's always a balance - too much stress can lead to inaction and insecurity.
