Exposure is a key component to being successful. I often talk to a lot of musicians that want to know how to get into touring or how to advance their career outside of their local gigs. My advice is to simply be fearless. Most people talk about wanting this and that but when presented with the very opportunity they say they want, they are too afraid to take it. You have to go after what you want with reckless abandon. Don't just talk about it, BE about it. I have so many friends who have had major touring opportunities but they some how found reasons not to take them and years later they are still talking about wanting to get out there. I also have a lot of friends who did take the step and continue to be successful. The bottom line is if you want it, then just go get it. You have to do the things that will prepare you to be in the game like getting your passport NOW. You know that you can't leave the country without one so if touring internationally is what you want to do, you have to be proactive and get your documents in order first. Opportunity does not always come in a neatly wrapped package and when it shows up, you don't have a long time to make a decision. You have to be fearless enough to ALWAYS be prepared and EXPECT it to come because it will. We all get what we ask for, it's just that not all of us are courageous enough to take the chance. Yes, pursuing a goal or dream is taking a chance because there is no guarantee and this is what scares most people out of trying but one thing is for sure, if you don't at least step out and try you will never know. You can truly have WHATEVER you want, you just have to be fearless enough to go get it. Enjoy the journey.
