After owning a very busy studio for 13 years I have come to the conclusion that the way I look at the big picture has Got to change. The last 2 years have been slim-pickins to say the least. I have not lowered my standards (to the contrary, I'm re-investing just as much as ever)I believe that my clients have lowered Thier standards. I'd like to hear from studio owners about how they are keeping it together, changing thier business structure or giving up. I really enjoy Recording.org but I would find it more fulfilling if the business- side of the equation got more time and brain-power.
