What Do You Want From Your Audience?

What do you want from your audience? This is likely the most fundamental and most forgotten question in all of entertainment.

But each of those, while...

These 8 Sayings From (Smart) Investors Might Just Change How You Do Business

Old Vs. New Marketing

Old marketing is about pushing, the “throw-everything-at-them” approach of saturation. Old marketing is about awareness.

6 Reasons To Spend More Time In The Children’s Section of the Bookstore

You can learn a lot from a child. In fact, most good business principals are taught and learned at the earliest of years.
