Question for musicians who run labels

I will apply this question to people who are in bands and run labels, but I'm just as interested in any kind of artist's input

For you personally, how does the satisfaction of releasing someone else's music stack up to the satisfaction of releasing your own music?

Given that when you make music, you are making the best possible music you can make, conceivably more tailored to your preferences than any other music out there, can someone else's record ever compare to your own, or is it just a different experience altogether?

Any input would be sweet; Longform answers are encouraged.

As someone who does both, I get a sense of fulfillment from each thing.
There is nothing like helping a band/artist you believe in have their music experienced by others.

Thanks for replying Jake.

Would you say the fulfilment is comprable or did you mean that they are totally distinct?

Depends on the person I suppose as we all put our own intrinsic value on things.
Anything that is positive forward movement is a good thing to me.
