What is the Indie Music Business Model? Emily Plazek founded Music Industry Connected to answer that question, along with many others that the modern MusicPreneur must answer in order to be successful.

About the Guest

Emily Plazek profileIn 2009, Emily went to business school instead of music school with one goal: to see if independent musicians needed to give up hope for a career without a label's help, or if there was a true non-cookie-cutter way to do it on your own. In 2013, she founded MIC: Music Industry Connected to spread the IMBM: Indie Music Business Model she created during the hunt for that answer and constantly develops in real-time through experiments with her own music career, Millaze -- MIC helps indie musicians turn their hobbies into income-generating careers across the country.
