A good rule of business is to reinvest about 10 to 15 percent of your profits each year back into your business. For those of us who use our studios for our main source of income, we can easily calculate our profits and then we can prioritize our wishlist.

Definitely spend some time and money getting things that inspire you—whether that is a cool microphone or LED ceiling lighting, or just a comfy chair. Don’t skimp on the monitoring system, which means getting some speakers and/or headphones that you can trust and setting up and tuning your room properly. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on your monitors or headphones as there are many great affordable options.
