For the passed couple years I have had the idea to have an independent label. There is a minor problem here. I'm looking at a start-up cost of $900,000 overall and I know no bank will just give me that large of a loan. The business plan is complete and most of the research is done. What I would like to see is this studio to specialize in open recording, touring and band management, radio and t.v. voice overdubbing work, C.D. duplication (for bands and businesses who would like data on C.D.) and the occasional music lesson to reduce the idle time our equipment has. I was wondering if anyone can help me determine what parts I should start first so I can obtain loans in stages as the business grows or even if this is a good idea at all. I have one skilled audio technician working with me right now as well.
