3 Rules To Being A Boss

Published

on

Want to be your own boss? Tired of taking orders from someone that is stealing your ideas? Or you just want to have a voice in the big decisions? Well, it is easier said than done, but we have 3 rules you need to start up your own business.

Rule No. 1 BECOME A TRUE MASTER

Find a way to prove that you’re a true master at your subject, whether it’s by performing publicly, competing in tournaments, on websites, getting featured in the press, writing about your knowledge or showing it off in YouTube videos and Instagram pictures to make the entire civilized world recognize your expertise firsthand.

Find a subject you’re passionate about, and learn every single thing about it so you become an expert. It doesn’t matter if you love art, music, sports, finance, business, design, entertainment, food, and travel or even poetry — and it also doesn’t matter if your friends, family, and common sense all tell you there’s no money to be made from it. Follow your heart, work your butt off becoming a master at whatever it is that you love, and you will be rewarded financially as there’s tremendous value in expertise.

Rule No. 2 BUSINESS IS BUSINESS

For ANY business the process of running the can be complex and far less “sexy” than one may believe. Take the time to focus on the ends and outs of the business. Most people focus on the outcome as in how much money they will make vs what would it take to function on daily basis.  Think about what type of credentials do you need, are you covered legally, what does your day to day operations intel; are just some of the questions you should ask yourself.

Even with the music industry, their is still a business that operates on daily basis. Though most people view the videos and lifestyle. This is what music industry A&R vet Tim Reliy had to say “From sorting out the ownership of a song and juggling publishing splits, royalty rates, unlicensed samples, and censorship issues, music supervision goes far beyond just creatively finding the right song for visual media. It’s a very lengthy process that has as much to do with budgets and clearances. “

Rule No. 3 IF YOU DON’T HAVE PLAN YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING

Devise a plan on how you will execute and succeeded at your goals. Would you walk in the desert without supplies? If you have any sanity the answer would be “No”.  The plan should be written and reviewed on monthly at least. The plan should include weekly, monthly, and yearly goals that you want to achieve.

Even though the initial spirit of most deals or partnerships begins with good intentions, some people forget about the goals and begin to focus only on the deal, money, and commitments. The plan will help everyone stay on target. 

Now go forth and BOSS UP!

Kobe Byrant Was Shocked By Kanye’s Slavery Comments

Published

on

Future HOF and Oscar Winner Kobe Bryant spoke out about Kanye’s recent slavery comments.

The NBA legend spoke with high school students at We Rise LA over the weekend, an event dedicated to inspiring future generations. In a video posted by TMZ, Bryant gave his two cents about West’s opinions during a Q&A session.

“I’m sure [I felt] the way everybody else here in this room feels,” Bryant admitted when a student asked about his response to the slavery comment in particular. “‘The hell are you talking about?’ I think that was my reaction as is everybody else’s reaction.”

Bryant continued, “The thing about our country is that you have the right to say whatever it is that you want to say. That’s the beautiful part about living in a democracy. Conversely, you have to take the responses that come after that as well.”

The athlete explained his theory that entertainers like Ye are “always in a state of growth,” challenging themselves and frequently questioning  their own opinions. However, in this case, Bryant’s opinion is firm: “Completely disagree.”

Spike Lee Calls Out Donald Trump During His Cannes Speech

Published

Spike Lee spoke out against Donald Trump dividing the country during Cannes Film Festival.

Following the  premiere screening of his Cannes competition title BlacKkKlansman — a true story following a black detective’s (John David Washington) plot to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan with help from a white colleague (Adam Driver) in 1970s Colorado — Lee blasted the country’s fractured state during the film’s press conference as he explained the project’s closing moments.

“We have a guy in the White House — I’m not gonna say his f—ing name — who defined that moment not just for Americans but the world, and that motherfu—er was given the chance to say we are about love, not hate. And that motherfu—er did not denounce the motherfu—ing Klan, the alt-right, and those Nazi motherfu—ers,” Lee said, per Vulture, adding that the Heyer’s killing was an “ugly blemish” on the U.S. “It was a defining moment, and he could have said to the world, not just the United States, that we were better than that.”

Following the Charlottesville protests, Trump did, however, hold a press conference on Aug. 14, 2017, during which he said: “To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend’s racist violence, you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be delivered… we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence. It has no place in America.”
