**PANEL: Building Your Own Team: Navigate Your Career
Friday, 3/17/17 | 2 – 3 p.m.
Austin Convention Center Room 11ab

This panel will focus on creating success and having options as your business and fan base grows. Panelists will provide insight on managing and communicating to your fans for fan engagement "best-practices." This panel will offer options for distribution and how to make your music available everywhere with discussions on how to build members of your team properly to replicate what large labels and management firms offer their clients. As your business grows, panel speakers will suggest a "check list" for building the right team around you to serve the needs traditionally found within a label or a big management company, and also discuss how to find success on your own terms without giving too much of your business or control away.
