Check out Maiya Sykes' music gear must haves!
During this week's Banking On Music podcast, I asked Maiya a hypothetical question:
If you still had all the experience and knowledge you currently have, your food and shelter was taken care of, but all you had was a laptop and $500 dollars. What would you do?
This is what she would purchase with her $500 (Get ready, because Maiya dropped some serious knowledge you can bank on!!):
App store Gift Card on Ebay ( who knew you could get a deal on gift cards on Ebay?!) Maiya would then use that to card to purchase video and photo editing apps, as well as an extra storage plan
