14 Creative Ways of Making Money On the Side

Making money in addition to a regular income can have a big impact on your finances. An extra $ 500 per month could go a long way in paying down debt or raising your investment. Diversifying your income streams is important, especially as wage remain stagnant. You decide how you want to produce the income. Either you ‘do something’ to generate the income- this is active income such as providing a service; or the income is generated without you having to ‘do anything,’ – this is passive income such as hosting an Airbnb. Just make sure you do not place all your eggs in one basket.

Creating multiple streams of income does not man get a second job to supplement your current income. A second job does not provide you with the flexibility and freedom to increase your income. In fact, it can hurt you when you think about it. You are trading time for money and in the long run, you lose. Instead, create something that will allow you to give yourself a pay raise when you need and want it. 

When evaluating and researching ways to produce income, take the following into consideration:

  • Investment — should require minimal investment.
  • Sustainable — ultimately, something that generates income without you.
  • Scalable — produces substantial amounts of income
  • Flexibility — you call the shots. 

Here’s what an extra $ 500 per month could look like: 

Savings account: If you deposited $ 500 each month for one year with an interest rate of 4.00%, compounded annually, and an initial starting balance of $ 500, your yield will be $ 6,629.22. 

Investment account: Now transfer the amount above from your savings into a 5- year CD with an interest rate of 2%, compounded annually, for five years, your yield will be $ 7,319.99.

Financial freedom: Extra income of $ 500 per month could cover car payments, auto insurance, help pay down credit card debt, or cover some or even all of a mortgage payment. Before saving, research rates, get your kids involved, and have fun with it. 

Small incremental savings can ultimately go a long way. Below are steadfast ideas guaranteed to help you generate multiple streams of income this year.

14 Ways of Making Money on the Side 

Sell an E-book

If publishing a book the traditional ways is a long shot, then consider an e-book. An e-book is simple; many people publish them for free, but many sell them as well on Amazon.

Affiliate Marketing

If you have a blog or other type of site, you can build affiliate links to different services on the website. Many people use Amazon as an affiliate partner. For example, if you are a beauty blogger writing about different products, you can set up Amazon affiliate links on your blog so that whenever someone buys the product you mention on Amazon, you receive a percentage of the sale. Amazon is not the only affiliate partner out there. Here is good, in-depth information on affiliate marketing

Write a Book

A well-written book will undoubtedly rake in some profits for you. Although the process of getting it published is sometimes tedious, it is not entirely impossible. Contrary to what many believe, self-publishing can be easy, fun, invigorating, and life changing.

Begin a Micro-Business

Many of the above examples are also small businesses. However, you can start a more traditional kind of business–one that sells a service or product. Consider the one thing you’re good at or the one thing you are constantly complimented on. Before starting, make sure you have all the legal documents in alignment.

Teach a Class

If you have excellent skills or knowledge, then consider teaching at a university; make a series of seminars or make your own classes at your business.

Offer Consulting or Coaching

Instead of teaching a full class, you can coach clients one-on-one.

Start a Blog

It may take a while for a blog to earn any money, as with any business, but with consistency and commitment, it will eventually pay off.

Develop a Product

A typical way of making money is to transform a service into a product. For example, as a freelancer, you offer a service once and earn money once. However, if you can change your service into a product, you can put it up for sale once and get paid lots of times.

Have Multiple Clients

If you depend on one main client only, slowly begin branching out to fresh customers. Build your client list through list building.

Launch a Magazine

You can select a topic, develop content, transform it into a perfect magazine and sell it for a profit.

Offer Expert Advice 

The technique here charges for calls from people who want guidance in the topic/field you are knowledgeable in.

Create a Membership Website 

If you can make valuable content, there will almost forever be people willing to pay a monthly fee for membership.

Invest

Stocks, bonds, 401(k)s, annuities, etc., are great ways to earn passive income. Place proceeds in a high-interest savings account or a high-interest checking account to establish your emergency fund account.

Purchase Real Estate

Real estate is a good way to earn extra income. Real estate investing includes fixing and flipping houses, which requires capital in the form of cash and credit. Speak with seasoned investors and realtors to find out if this passive income strategy is right for you.

Producing additional income is the foundation to building wealth. While earning extra income does take work, the ROI can be enormous and pay off for years to come. Now’s the time to create your plan for building your financial legacy for you and your family.

Cultivating a Community for Creative Millennials of Color

Leaving no stone unturned in the realm of content creation, conversation facilitation, and event curation, Driven Society has become part of the creative professional scene in New York City by its focus on live events targeted to millennials of color.

The organization has partnered with major brands including WeWork, JBL, Hennessy, Belaire Rose, Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, New York Latino Film Festival, and more, The platform’s CEO and co-founder Travis Weekes sits at the helm of the ship with co-founders Natalia Saavedra, Zuhaib Kokab, and Darren Bowen. I spoke with Weeks about the mission behind Driven Society, its various arms of business and the importance of amplifying up-and-coming talent.

“The goal of Driven Society is to cultivate a community of creatives that push the culture forward and build success for millennials and post-millennials. We envision a world where business, philosophy, and art converge to provide equal opportunity for success regardless of background or privilege. We want to lead, nurture, and support the next generation of innovative entrepreneurs and leaders in creating cultural change and professional success.”

Driven Society’s goal aligns with the outlook of millennial Americans. According to Forbes, millennials start their first business around the age of 27. Surveys suggest over 62% of millennials have considered starting their own business. Seventy-two percent feel that startups and entrepreneurs are necessary for economic improvement through job creation and innovation (yet 77% are holding back because they view business startups as too risky).

“We enjoy always keeping our eyes and ears open to whoever isn’t afraid to voice their opinions and those looking to implement change and/or impact their communities. Whenever we see that, we make it a point keep track of those individuals and look for ways to build relationships. Once you spot one and surround yourself with a rising cultural leader, it becomes easier to keep track and come across them.”

The group uses a multi-pillar approach to foster the game changers of the culture. Live events, interactive marketplace, and strategic partnerships. The live events serve as platforms for the sharing of knowledge and best practices. The interactive marketplace is where products can be showcased and sold as a result of the knowledge and best practices learned through the live event series. The strategic partnerships help amplify both the live events and the marketplace by putting up-and-coming creatives in the same room with representatives from major brands.

“Our community of creative entrepreneurs exists to inspire, energize, and nurture ideas in support of a thriving generation of young people. We envision a world where business, philosophy, and art converge to provide equal opportunity for success regardless of background or privilege. Working with brands that value the multicultural perspective is a big part of it and brands that want to expose our community to something of substance. Since we’re a part of this community, it’s easy for us to identify our peers who are also pushing culture in their own way and giving them the platform to grow.”

Driven Society’s latest event, titled SoundByte, is the organization’s effort to stay on top of innovative life programming. The bi-monthly series addresses the growing convergence of tech, music, and culture as millennials of color seek to obtain the information needed to take ownership of their billion-dollar influence on pop cultural industries.

Creative ways to spend your time on a layover between flights

ADVERTISEMENT


The idea of packing our bags, sweeping through the airport in a pair of oversized sunglasses, and glamorously boarding a plane can be wonderful, but in reality, it usually involves a pair of sweats and lots of fidgeting. Plus, the layover between flights can just prolong the pain. Have no fear; all the time on the ground doesn’t have to be wasted as there are plenty of creative ways to spend your layovers.

Get up and moving

If you have just been sat on a plane for hours, you may not want to spend the next few sat in an airport lounge waiting for your connecting flight. Now, you don’t have to. The time in between flights is a great way to get active before your next stint on the plane. To top it off, many airports now have built-in gyms or yoga studios that offer up the perfect space to exercise. If not, find a quiet area and get stretching. It will feel so good.

Get out and about

If you have a long layover and you’re struggling with things to do, then why waste your time in the airport? This is the perfect time to have a whistle-stop tour of the local area without having to fork out on expensive stays. You could take it all in by booking a tour, heading to the local museums, or taking a walk and seeing where you end up. It’s like you get two vacations in one thanks to your brief visit to a brand new city.

Pack some games

Many airlines let passengers take a backpack or handbag on as a carry-on. Some items are a must, but there is always room for some layover entertainment. Why not fill some of it with a board game or two? After all, Monopoly alone can take hours. Board games won’t take up too much room (especially travel versions of them) and will give you a chance to unwind before cramming yourself back on the next plane.

Make new friends

Chances are you’ll be surrounded by people all going to the same place. If you are looking for a creative way to spend your layover time or you’re traveling on your own, then the airport can be the perfect place to make some new friends. Who knows, you could be sitting next to someone that knows some hidden gems where you’re headed. All it takes is saying “hello” and you could have made yourself a new travel buddy.

Get drawing or writing

Sometimes inspiration for creativity just takes finding a new space to work. If you’re suffering from writer’s block or looking for something new to draw then watching the world pass by at the airport can offer up plenty of new ideas. Maybe it is an overheard conversation? Or perhaps it is the view out of the window? Whatever it is that gets the creative juices flowing – this could be the perfect source of inspiration.

Freebies

Many airports offer up freebies of all kinds that are yours for the taking. It could be using the free wifi to call a loved one, catch up on emails, or watch a movie, or using the complimentary amenities on offer. If you’re lucky, there could be a free spa that will help you relax before the next part of your trip. Or there could be a games area that has foosball, air hockey, or any other arcade games. Before you know it, you’ll hear your flight being called.

Layovers don’t have to be boring. In fact, they can be the perfect opportunity to catch up on the creativity you have been missing in your travels. No longer do you have to find yourself watching the clock. Now, you could be wishing the hours would last even longer.

Creative ways to document your travels

ADVERTISEMENT

The great thing about traveling, besides the obvious of experiencing new cultures, new tastes and smells and just taking some time off, is mostly, the idea that you accumulate memories that will stay for a lifetime. You may not realize it at first, because we are so busy, whether we like it or not, to deal with going back to our mundane routine, but the hype and adrenaline you experienced while traveling, doesn’t necessarily have to end once you go back home. The ‘post travel blues’ that many people may feel can easily be cured by just a few simple things. One of them is to find a way to document your experiences and memories in a creative way.

Each and every person absorbs their journey differently, and the things they see in the outside world are taken in in endless ways, therefore it only makes sense that there will be countless ways in which their journey could be documented. The only ‘problem’ is that not everyone knows what to do with all of these memories, and that’s where we step in.

These days, we are used to constantly snapping pictures at every given chance with our phones, so you can only imagine how hectic it can get when traveling. The thing with capturing the moment with our phone, is that it’s just for that given moment, and if we don’t instantly share it on social media, filter it with our Insta account or send it to someone close, it can get lost, not literally, but lost down your phone memory lane. It’s time to go a little DIY and upgrade your personal space and let your inner wanderlust shine through your home’s walls.

Framed Memories

We realize that the idea of actually framing your pictures sounds far fetched, because it involved actually going out to the the store and printing your photos, but if you pass that hurdle, you will come to realize that only good and pretty things can come out of it. However, if you really want yo get creative, you can frame all kind of different souvenirs like the local currency, the tickets you bought along your trip or just postcards you collected from different places.


A Recipe for a good trip:

These are some good news for all you foodies out there. Whether you want to admit it or not, you know that 99% of your travel goals have to do with food and trying out the local cuisine. At the end of the day, it’s really all about the food, the restaurants, the tastes and the smells, so what better way to keep track of your culinary experiences than keeping a recipe journal with all of your favorite dishes from your favorite.

Scratch it off:

If you don’t have that inner DIY bug, you can also just purchase this World Scratch Map from the Urban Outfitters online store. The basic idea is that you get a classic world map that is topped with foil that can be scratched off and that way all the places you’ve been to stand out, so you will always have a memory of where you’ve been to. It’s just a very authentic and raspy way to keep track of your travels and adventures.

Let’s get digital:

Now, we know it’s a little bit of going back to the whole digital sphere and less about ‘home made’ idea, but keeping a travel blog will not only help you keep track of your different experiences you accumulate along the way and document them in the easiest possible way, it will allow you to talk about your journey many more days and months after you return home.

If these walls could travel:

If you really want to make a creative statement at your own personal space, you can always choose one wall or one corner that will be dedicated entirely to your memories. That way, whenever you will pass it by, you’ll have a very sweet memory. Oh, and it’s also a very great way to make a creative statement.

Store it pretty:

This creative bookshelf keepsafe kit is actually one of the brightest and most gorgeous things we’ve seen so far. It’s so simple, yet stylish and useful that we wonder how we haven’t thought about it before. Just take a wooden store box, paint it with whatever color you feel and place on your bookshelf. The secret is to have a box that can open up and can store up things inside, for example all of your tickets, maps, postcards and more.

This comic strip nailed exactly what it’s like to be a freelance creative in just four panels

This comic strip nailed exactly what it’s like to be a freelance creative in just four panels


This comic strip nailed exactly what it’s like to be a freelance creative in just four panels

If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a freelancer and working for yourself, one comic strip nailed exactly what it’s like to be a freelance creative. Long-story short? It’s not as easy as you may think. Being a freelancer requires serious self-discipline, self-motivation, and balancing several responsibilities at once — to name just a few requirements. And then it comes with plenty of awkward complications. Like figuring out how to file your taxes.

Plus, there’s the whole getting-paid-thing, which is a whole other issue — how much money to charge, how quickly your client(s) will pay you, etc. And, let’s say you’re a writer or artist — some places may want you to work for free. Yup, FREE. Think about other jobs, an architect for instance. Can you imagine a client asking them to work for free? Here, design this building for us, but we can’t pay you… Luckily, one comic artist knows our pain.

This comic strip nails those freelance creative annoyances on the head.

As funny as this comic is, anyone who’s an artist or writer can likely relate — and the fact that a newspaper had printed it is ironic since some print and online publications ~don’t~ pay and ~do~ believe exposure is payment enough.

Want to know more? The artist is Rick Detorie.

You can find his work online and on Amazon. We’re grateful that @XenoStateOfMind, the Twitter user who shared the strip, went out of their way to give the artist credit. They also explained why they shared it online — and it wasn’t for personal exposure.

Hear, hear! And the Twitterverse found it just as relatable.

It’s not easy to hack the freelance life. But seeing comics like this from other creatives who get it makes it a little bit easier. When you find an artist or writer you love, support their work. We know we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for Rick Detorie in the future.

7 creative ways to document the first day of school

by

Jennifer Borget

posted in Life

Taking photos on the first day of school is a growing trend that many families participate in. It’s a fun and exciting way to get the new school year off to a great start. However, why just take photos when you can use this opportunity to make a permanent record of the big day?

Here are six ways to document the first day of school using photos:

1. Take a photo holding a sign. On a chalkboard, dry erase board or construction paper write the date, the school year and first day of school. Then, take a photo of your child holding the sign. She can also write a special message on the bottom that says what she wishes the first day will be like, things she loves or what she wants to be when she grows up to make the first day of school even more memorable.

2. Use a balloon to document her first day. Write the first day of school on the balloon using a magic marker. Use a large balloon so you have plenty of room to write your message. You can also add the date, school year or any other message she wants to portray on this exciting first day of school.

3. Make a banner. Write the first day of school, the date and the school year on the banner or write a message to your child saying something like, “have a great first day of school” along with the date. Have your child stand under it when taking the photograph.

4. Make a scrapbook. Take before and after school photos and place them in the scrapbook. Underneath each one write down what your child was feeling when it was taken. For example, was she feeling excited, nervous, a little scared or ready to start the day in the first photo? In the second one, was she still feeling excited, happy and ready for a new day? This is something you can add to all year to see how she changes from the first to the last day of school.

5. Take a photo of your kids holding a life-size picture frame around their face. Write the date and school year, back to school and the date or whatever message you want to display around the frame and take a picture.

6. Get creative with chalk. Writing messages on a chalkboard is very popular but if you want to get a little more creative, write your message on the side of a wall or sidewalk and have your child stand or sit beside it as you take the photo.

7. Take a picture in their classroom. If your school allows it, and it’s your child’s first day of kindergarten you may want to accompany your child to their classroom and take a photo of their new desk in their new room as they kick a new school year off.

Documenting the first day of school is a great way to preserve this moment forever. Every time you see the photos, you’ll remember when your child was that age. It will also help her remember her childhood more vividly. The images will contain all of the information about that day and maybe even exactly how she was feeling at that moment.

http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

Military Wife Finds A Creative Way To Include Husband In Christmas Card

Husband and father of four Brandon Sistrunk won’t be home for the holidays this year, but that didn’t stop his wife Ashley from making sure they posed for their family Christmas card together.

Brandon is a staff sergeant in the Air Force currently deployed overseas in Iraq. Ashley and their four kids live thousands of miles away in Colorado Springs, Colorado, so she needed to get creative to make the group shot a reality.

Ashley’s mother took a photo of her and the kids, and a military friend of Brandon’s took a picture of him. Ashley then stitched the two images together in Photoshop and shared it with friends on social media. It was picked up by local news station KKTV 11 on Saturday and has since gone viral.

“Having a piece of your heart across the world, fighting for your country. It’s just a whole other level of emotions,” she said

Thankful for a mom that can cook!

A photo posted by Ashley Sistrunk (@ashley_sistrunk) on

Ashley also told KKTV that life as a military wife has been tough on her and the kids. Brandon was deployed during three of the children’s births and was unable to make it home.

“We tell the kids, ‘Yes, other kids have their daddy home right now,’” she said. “But their daddy is out being a superhero, keeping our country safe and that’s important ― that’s an important job.”

On Instagram, Ashley said that the holidays are a particularly difficult time for the family. 

“I hate wanting to wish away a holiday,” she wrote. “Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, but with Brandon gone and the kids begging to have him home on Christmas, it just won’t be the same. I know we are supposed to ‘live for today!’, but I wish I could wake up tomorrow and have it be late January!”

Fortunately, Brandon is set to return home to his family early next year. 

“[The kids] adore him,” Ashley told FOX21. “He will do anything for them. So I miss him actually being able to come home at the end of the day and they yell ‘Daddy!’”

When it comes to building her wardrobe, Aï Bihr certainly has a lot of options. As Steven Alan’s creative director, Bihr has a whole store’s worth of goodies right at her fingertips — and is in the enviable position of being able to actually create exactly the kind of garment she’d like to wear. And if that wasn’t enough to make you wish you were in her shoes, Bihr speaks multiple languages, has lived in Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles, and New York, holds degrees in both neuroscience and pattern-making. Here, she gives us the scoop on what she wears to work.

On a work day, I try to wear mostly Steven Alan because it’s good for me to wear what we’ve made; if we need to improve something or if something’s not working great, then I know it. I love to wear a big Steven Alan shirt — I usually get something a bit oversize. So I’ll wear a men’s extra-large reverse seam in white, with a pair of jeans we’ve made. I also have a lot of old Levi’s because I collect a lot of denim. I love a 501, but I like to buy a big men’s size and then cut the legs so they’re kind of wide and cropped. I go to a lot of vintage stores to hunt for them; when I lived in Paris I went every weekend to look at the flea markets. I’m also a big vintage eyewear collector and have really loved designing the Steven Alan Optical collection.

On my feet, I usually have sneakers or oxfords. Or like, a penny loafer. My whole team knows I’m addicted to these Japanese high tops called Shoes Like Pottery. I wear them constantly, year round. I don’t want to be boring, but I always look the same! Even if there’s a corporate event or I have to make a presentation, I always look the same. I try to stay very consistent and have been very consistent for a long time. I’ve always worn a lot of jumpsuits–whatever brand I go to, I make jumpsuits for them. They’re kind of great because they’re so versatile. You can even tie the sleeves at the waist and they make really great pants that way. I have a nice collection of vintage jumpsuits, some from the Yves Saint Laurent Safari collection, and I’ll wear those tied at the waist or zip them up and belt them. And if I’m wearing a jumpsuit like that I might add a little heeled sandal. Maryam Nassir Zadeh makes beautiful shoes. If I do go to a party and I feel like wearing something a little bit different I’ll put on sandals from Maryam. One of my best friends, Mona, designs A Détacher and she makes really beautiful skirts and dresses. I recently bought an indigo skirt/culotte thing from her. It’s the perfect length and so good for summer parties.

Dress for the Seasons

When the weather is this hot and humid, I love to wear linen and cotton poplin. We have these really great cotton poplin wide trousers from Steven Alan called the Picnic Pant. When you wear a wide-leg trouser like that, it’s nice to wear something small on top. You can’t wear something too big, or else you look like a tent. It’s also a great pant to wear with a linen T-shirt.

In the fall, I’m usually in a suit. I’ll wear a suit jacket and a pair of trousers, with a T-shirt and sneakers. I have a few different jacket styles that I really like–one is a schoolboy that’s a bit smaller; The Row makes a really nice one every year. And then I like a boyfriend notched lapel in tropical wool; it’s actually the first jacket I made for Steven Alan when I joined the company and it’s still my go-to. I also always love to have a peak lapel double-breasted blazer. I think the key to pulling off a suit is–well, first of all you just really have to find the right suit for you. But then you also have to have a more casual element in your accessories or what you’re wearing the suit with, like a T-shirt and sneakers.

Quality Control

When I’m shopping for myself, I always look at the finishing of the garment. I’m looking on the inside, not just the outside, examining the fabric, rubbing it on my neck and doing all the crazy things that designers do. You want to make sure there’s a clean finish–basically, that you don’t see all this thread wrapped around the seam–so that it doesn’t look like things are going to snag. It’s good to pay attention to these kinds of things, because they’re going to dictate the longevity of the garment. And really touch the fabric. Customers aren’t stupid, they know when they’re feeling good fabric. This is why we choose to use really good fabric at Steven Alan, because our customers are smart. They know they’re not getting garbage from us. That’s one thing I’m really proud of: There’s no room for poor quality. I’m really proud to say that more than 90 percent of the things I make are made in New York. And if it’s not made here, it’s made at the best factory in Japan.

Love You to Pieces: Creative Writers on Raising a Child with Specialneeds

Love You to Pieces: Creative Writers on Raising a Child with Specialneeds


The first collection of literary writing on raising a child with special needs, Love You to Pieces features families coping with autism, deafness, muscular dystrophy, Down syndrome and more. Here, poets, memoirists, and fiction writers paint beautiful, wrenchingly honest portraits of caring for their children, laying bare the moments of rage, disappointment, and guilt that can color their relationships. Parent-child communication can be a challenge at the best of times, but in this collection we witness the struggles and triumphs of those who speak their own language–or don’t speak at all–and those who love them deeply. "Powerful, unflinching, and beautifully rendered, Love You to Pieces is not just an anthology about raising children with special needs, but true literature. Many parents will find moving depictions of a reality they know so well. Others with no knowledge of this world will find a literary experience they’ll never forget." –Rachel Simon, author of Riding the Bus with My Sister "Love You To Pieces is a unique reading experience: raw, moving, provocative and compelling. The stories are beautifully told, from many different backgrounds and perspectives, but taken together share a common and ultimately triumphant connecting thread: love conquers all." –Daniel Tammet, author of Born On A Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant "Love You To Pieces is groundbreaking. Our public discourse about disability is dominated by the voices of medical professionals and fix-your-child tomes. These stories elevate the experience of people with disabilities to the level of literature. Love You To Pieces bears witness to cognitive and physical difference as an essential and beautiful fact of human experience. It is a must buy book for anyone who parents, educates, or supports young people with disabilities." –Jonathan Mooney, author of The Short Bus: A Journey Beyond Normal

Word Of Mouth: Nashville Conversations: Insight Into The Drive, Passion, And Innovation Of Music City's Creative

Word Of Mouth: Nashville Conversations: Insight Into The Drive, Passion, And Innovation Of Music City's Creative


Right now, there is no city in the United States hotter, cooler, or more it than Nashville, TN. With a booming economy, a great quality of life, and a creative, collaborative entreprepeneurial community, Nashville is on the short-list of living and travel destinations for passionate and innovative minds. As many newspapers, magazines, and websites have pointed out, one of the critical components to Nashville''s growth and popularity is it''s thriving and cutting-edge music, culinary, and artistic communities.
Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations is an elegant collection of interviews by Nashville writer Lily C. Hansen, highlighted by stunning, black & white photography from some of Nashville''s finest photographers, that captures the drive, passion, and innovation of several prolific Nashvillians who have thrived in – and helped drive — the art, culinary, and music industries. Also included are several wild card personalities: those who possess talents that defy labeling and elipse categorization. Word of Mouth is an inside look at the exploding community of Nashville and a multifaceted portrait of the intellectual and inventive capital that makes the city hum with energy.
It''s title reflects what makes Word of Mouth special: by interviewing each of these personalities, Word of Mouth relies on the classic form of intimate conversation to gain insight and understanding of each personality while also capturing the organic and tried-and-true method – word of mouth — through which each have attracted their fan-base and support network. Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations is a testament to Nashville''s incredible mixture of artistic talent but also it''s zest for collaboration, rather than competitiveness: similar to the artistic community''s nonexistent hierarchy, up-and-coming talent is interviewed alongside illustrious, internationally-recognized artists.
While Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations focuses on the creative entrepeneurs of Music City, it is a book that knows no geographical limits; it is for every creative entrepreneur, everywhere. As a collection of anecdotes, quotes and wisdom shared by those pursuing their dreams or those who have already obtained commercial fruition, it presents the stories and the insights that any innovative mind, young and old alike, needs to hear as they follow their heart and pursue their own creative path.
