Transcript:

Imagine — in the past — when you had to go through a television network or a radio station or a music company or a music producer to get your creativity seen and heard. Today, you can take your creativity from the very beginning and share it with the world. That’s what podcasting, new media, YouTube, and all that is all about. Sharing what you do and how well you do it. Now, I can’t stress enough the need for you to do your own projects. Especially in the entertainment industry. We became convinced over the the years that the only way to have an entertainment career was to have an agent and a manager and a variety of all these people doing things for you. Promotion people and so on and so forth. The fact is, today, it’s much more your own career and a lot of the responsibility for your career falls on you. Yeah, I know, it’s a lot of work and it can be tough at times, but the fact is, no one can care about your career as much as you do. So, why shouldn’t you be the one doing the blogging, the video-ing, the podcasting, the recording of your own music, whatever.
