So, read their story, learn their mistakes, and follow their advices. You will be good.

N10. Madonna

One of the richest single moms in Hollywood is also one of the most respected and appreciated artists that ever walked the Earth.

Madonna was once A Big Deal. How so? Well, in the 80s, she had the same joy, charisma that determined her to find the strength to become an artist.

Before she signed her first recording deal with Sire Records, back in ‘82, Madonna’s management company sent one of her demo to Jimmy Lenner. The demo CD contained songs that were later featured on her debut album. Meaning that the songs were great.

However, Jimmy Lenner was unimpressed, saying that “the only thing missing from this project is the material”.

But Madonna didn’t give up, and not only did the material surface on a record that sold 10 million copies, but she auction the rejection letter at Sotheby’s in 2001.
