Music Producer or Publicist
The two professions I considered were working as a publicist or a music producer. A publicist generates and manages publicity for someone like a celebrity, or for a work like a book or film.

I love music but it would a challenge to open up my imagination, and be creative in order to keep coming up with songs, as a result of being on a hurried schedule.
Music producers assure that a project stays within budget, secure a studio time, aid artists in choosing songs to record and help give them a quality performance, help audio engineers in the mixing, mastering, and recording process. Music production, Musical History and Theory, Composition, Songwriting, Ear Training, Copyright Law, Finance and Marketing, Entrepreneurship
