That depends strongly on my general wellbeing. Ideally, it gives me joy of life, inspiration, a challenge, a social life.
Owning a recording studio and getting to compose and produce for film, TV & other acts.
The universal basic income so the pressure to make a living is off one's shoulders and all the energy and inspiration can go into music (or any other artform, including craftmanship of any kind e.g.)
The main theme in Klaus Doldinger's 1984 score to Michael Ende's "The Neverending Story" (www.imdb.com/title/tt0088323/fullcredits)
This has been subject to a lot of change over the years. It went from Psychedelic Rock through Prog Rock to Rock to Pop to R&B... now film score, Electronic/Dance/Chillout/Downbeat/Ambient ... the list goes on. I try to open myself up to all music of substance and authenticity, commercial or not.
Usually other artists' work.
IDK. It is challenging enough to keep at it. ;-)
Terrified, usually. I had to find out that I'm not a stage "hog" at all. I can perform with a band, but I prefer leaving the lead to others in the band.

Too early to say. I just joined.
Yes. By supporting the bands in my area and letting others know about them through social media, e.g.
Business and marketing skills, a firm understanding of the legal aspects of the business, ideally some formal training in either of these fields.
It's entirely possible that quite a number of people have heard of Anna Morsett of "The Still Tide" by now. Not too long ago they were probably an insiders tip. http://thestilltide.com
