Don't feed your dreams on the rare glittering success.

I could say that working for a sound company is a way, way better path out of poverty than the "music game" but it's still not a great idea. You need people skills, mechanical skills and a very strong work ethic. And with all that you're underpaid compared to normal jobs. But you get the satisfaction of bringing entertainment to the public, and that's a lot.

Life is a chess problem and there is always a logical next move.
Music is a viable path out of an impoverished spirit. Make music with like minds, and enjoy the journey.

If you develop an act that people will pay to see, you will reach the finish line.
