I'd respectfully suggest that the time has come for SOS to start reflecting the reality of the music industry, and run articles not highlighting success, but rather focusing on failure. Its time to banish the notion of "its difficult but it can be done", and replace it with the near statistical certainty that "its next to impossible and you will fail".

I think we should hear from graduates of courses who racked up piles of debt and ended up not working in the music industry. From people who begged and borrowed to set up studios that ran at a loss and closed. From composers that spent huge amounts on orchestral libraries but didn't get the gig. From DIY labels that ticked all the boxes but sold hardly any copies. From songwriters who signed up for paid "A&R" and didn't get a single sync.

This is a matter of journalistic balance - these are the norm, and its about time they were given prominence in the music tech / music media. The constant feed of aspiration is nothing other than dishonest, and doesn't bear any semblance to reality.

To get it rolling, lets have a forum on failure, somewhere nice and prominent like at the top of the general discussions section.
