Who comes to mind when you think of celebrity giving?  U2’s Bono perhaps (one of the featured givers on celebrity giving site Looking To The Stars), maybe even people like Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys giving up Twitter for a good cause now and then.  Don’t forget the golf tournaments and baby holding done by groups like Rascal Flatts.

Image is everything …
Put your best foot forward …
You only have one chance to make a first impression …

Sayings like this have been swirling around the world for centuries. Do we pay attention to them? Do they apply to someone trying to make their mark in the music business?

  2. Mind your manners, be polite
  3. Always be on time
  4. Respect your elders
  5. Encourage your friends
