1) Start record label
2) ????
3) PROFIT!

I say you ask some guys in an indie label about how they got started and what exactly they did. I have no idea how one forms a "record label". All I can think of is building your own studio (which will require some cash input), and then signing deals with publishers and distributers n' stuff.

But ask someone who knows. If you're in the UK, there's probably an indie record label near YOU.

1. Be a people person.
2. College courses on business.

cmon there must be SOMEONE that can help me?

You can't just "make a company" without knowing anything. Do you even know what LLC stand for? Are you even familiar with what makes up a corporation? You need to go to school for this.

Be realistic. Starting a business take money, and a very firm idea of what to do.

With an emphasis on the money part. You need shitloads of money to make a record label work.

Besides, the record label is a dying industry.

obviously, there are ways to deal with that. i.e. classes, loans, etc. otherwise, no one would ever be able to make new businesses. ever. as long as this guy plans it out and serious and intelligent enough, it's not impossible.
