Yep, I guess you're right. Might as well become insurance sales employees.

Yes/No. Some of them had professional jobs that they were sick of, and finally saw an outlet. They backed off because they realized there were ways to finally make a little bit of supplemental income off music.

Some of them deliver flowers, and still do, but now they also have a little bit of money coming from music, with a trip to the mailbox.
