Being organized isn’t everyone’s strong suit. For me, I enjoy organizing. It makes life easier. Remember our e-mail post a few weeks ago? It’s kinda like that; being organized equates to being more productive. You can find everything faster, like important documents or that pen you need on the fly while taking down quick info. Being organized allows you to better schedule your day too because you know what needs to be done.Read More
My advice, don’t try to do everything all at once. Start small and make it work. Remember, money follows ideas. Ideas don’t follow money. If you’re a good songwriter, your songs will speak for you. Just get it out there. We appreciate all the love we’ve been receiving on Twitter and requests to check out your productions!Read More
Investing! No, not the stock market kind. The business kind; the people kind of investing. Upgrading and rebranding are great moves for a company. In fact, they are necessary. But you need to have the right timing, because if your employees aren’t feeling appreciated then moral can go down. And if moral goes down and you begin losing profit, then all those upgrades and the rebrand offers little to no value. The best investment you can make in your business is investing in your employees. Even if you’re self employed. (Who can run a business while they are sick, right?)Read More
This past week, we interviewed Wrighteous about his new single, “One Armor” (video to be released soon so keep checking back!). Using the tool of image is a double edge sword; while you can greatly communicate the emotion and vision you can also stifle your viewers interest if not done correctly. The first five to seven seconds of your message are hugely important. Those precise seconds determine the mood and tone upon which the viewer will make the judgement to keep watching or move on to the “next best thing.” Feelings, emotions, location, interview questions, lighting, etc. need to be thought out before ever pressing record.Read More
Pinterest truly is a magical social media tool. You can find all sorts of things! Like the inspiration for this blog post.

Get ready to declutter your Inbox and plan your day more efficiently with this e-mail file method!Read More
n life, there are points at which we need to take a little time away from regularly scheduled programming. A break. Sometimes, these breaks will be planned (sometimes they MUST be planned to ensure your getaway!). Other times, a “break” will be unexpected. You need to focus time on family or an emergency pops up. The definition of a break is different for each of us. Maybe to you, a break is simply taking time away from work to tend to the clematis dying in your garden due to lack of attention. Maybe a break means lounging in your pjs and catching up on the latest Netflix series.Read More
“You can do anything, but not everything.” And that’s why you need a partnership. Partnerships come in many forms. Some share in the profits. Some simply trade ideas. But typically, both parties benefit in some capacity. You can play off of each other by covering your partners weaknesses and build each other’s client base by adding to their list of strengths.
Recently, we’ve been able to meet with several entrepreneurs and business owners to chat about their success, their struggle and what it took to get where they are today. And in our experience, we found that entrepreneurs have three things in common: drive, an openness to learn and a willingness to be different.
Some call it passion, but we like to call it drive (because, when the passion runs out, you still gotta have drive to keep pushing forward). And we can pretty much promise you more “no’s” than “yes's” when it comes to your proposal. But it only takes one “YES!” to move your business to the next step. Some people may doubt your plan for success, but you must have the drive to proceed in the “dog-eat-dog” world of Startup.
