I'd like to add an important aspect of making When someone pushes too much or wants something for nothing, the reason they turn people off is that they are not trusted.

Yes, you should be a giving, helpful person, but the first day you meet the president of Big Big Music, you don't offer to house sit for them or drive their daughter to the mall. It is a matter of building trust. When a music executive endorses you, then they are putting their reputation on the line. They want to know you won't stab them in the back, or hit on their wife, or steal their leather cigar case.

You've got to know your limitations. I don't know what your limitations are. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way. -Johnny Cash

It's only music.
