    Big Publishers: Can the Spanish Armada transform into the British Fleet?

    in Education

    Big Publishers: Can the Spanish Armada transform into the British Fleet?


    Can big publishers change enough to address how today’s students learn, educator’s teach, and shifting business models associated with both? In the US textbook market we have three very large players. Big publishers have process, coordination, and business accountability issues which are far less of a hindrance to smaller organizations. The result is that larger organizations can’t change quickly. While all publishers are concerned with make quarterly numbers and hitting academic deadlines a large corporate infrastructure while necessary for a large organization limits the ability of that organization to adapt to market demands.


    How does the move from print to digital look different for large publishers versus smaller organizations? Schools continue to adopt instructional resources and either ask that the electronic version be included with the print, ask for a class set of print and a digital version for students, or only want the digital version… sometimes only a few chapters! We will discuss how publishers, small and large, can make it through this morass and emerge successfully in a digital first world. We’ll touch on tools and technical standards that can ease this transition.


    Take a seat at as guests take a bite out of questions like:



    What role are big publishers playing in the future?
    What opportunities does this leave for smaller organizations?
    Is it sustainable to provide both print and digital assets?
    Is it the job of the publisher to lead innovation or to reflect innovation and change?

        Denisha Raychelle Hardeman, also known as Dede, was born in Houston, TX on February 18, 1991. Denisha grew up entertaining people. She would perform all the time in church plays, speeches and praise dancing. The church noticed a spark in Denisha, which prompted her to want to continue acting and singing. Growing up Denisha also took on another hobby, writing. She won many creative writing contests in school and her poem “Halloween Night” won a poetry contest and was published in a poetry book when she was 8 years old.


    In Elementary school, Denisha was the captain of her school cheerleading team and was also the president of the school when she was in 4th grade. After noticing her leadership and creative schools, MadingElementary’s new choir director, Mrs. Roache, decided to start an acting program. She starred Denisha in her first stage play, “A Christmas Story,” where Denisha played the quirky and funny version of Little Red Riding Hood. In middle school, Denisha auditioned for Pershing Middle School for Fine Arts. During her first audition, the theater teachers told her that they wanted her in the school no matter what. She did not have to attend the 2nd and 3rd auditions. During her time at Pershing, Denisha starred in “Cinderella” as Cinderella, “The Wizard of Oz” as Dorothy, “For Colored Girls” as the Lady In Red, and “Romeo and Juliet” as Juliet. Denisha also won best actress for the school her 6th and 8th grade year.

    Entertainment Publishers Lydia & Kevin King stops by Good Deeds w/ Dr. Sunday

    in Motivation

    Kevin King and Lydia King founded Tru. Entertainment Magazine in January of 2011.
    Kevin came from a background in photography and graphic art design and have
    photographed some of the industry’s most famous and influential entertainment
    personalities.
    Lydia is a former musician and staff-writer for multi- platinum and diamond award
    winning Production Company, Flyte Tyme Productions. She's also written for various
    performers and celebrities over the years earning a Gold record for penning a song
    written for the highly popular 1980's pop group (The Jet's) "Believe" album.
    Through perseverance, time, and talent these two self-taught publishers are now three
    years and 24 issues into the production of the promotional magazine which is loved by
    both fans, indie artists and celebrities alike. They work diligently to provide a publication
    like no other and the 10 million + readers that they reach every month via Tru's;
    website, digital editions, print editions, social media sites and live events can't seem to
    get enough of TRU.
    The King's prove that highlighting the positive in an industry that far too often suffers
    from slander and negative promotion will work to encourage artists and celebrities to
    change their outlook on the press and media altogether. Celebrities from all walks of the
    entertainment world, legends and icons flock to 'Tru' to give their "TRU"th to the world.
    Last but certainly not least, the King's believe in giving back. Fifty percent of Tru.
    Entertainment Magazine's net proceeds are used to fund the One Love, One Mission
    Movement. A foundation they've established to help homeless persons throughout
    communities across the nation. "TRU"LY stand out.

    Finding Your Path to Personal Fulfillment

    in Self Help

    May 21, 2015 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio


    THEME: Finding Your Path to Personal Fulfillment


    INTERVIEW GUEST: Sue Batton Leonard


    Sue Leonard is an Author, Writer and Blogger. She is the Founder and President of Cornerstone Fulfillment Service, LLC --- a company specializing in e-commerce and e-marketing for independent publishers since 1998. She is the author of the 3-time award winning memoir, titled, Gift of a Lifetime: Finding Fulfilling Things in the Unexpected.


    THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: 


    As most of us have learned, we cannot find happiness by making it our goal. Happiness is the unintended benefit of pursuing personal dreams and living true to yourself. When you proactively connect the person you are with the things that you choose to do, a deep sense of fulfillment will emerge. Fulfillment is a form of happiness, or satisfaction, that is the direct result of fully developing your abilities or character. Personal fulfilment is best defined as the achievement of life goals which are important to you, in contrast to the goals of society or even your family. Personal fulfilment is an ongoing journey for most of us. They journey commences when we start becoming conscious of ourselves, our surroundings and our past. But, for many of us, finding the right path to this level of consciousness and fulfilment is a challenge. Sometimes finding a path to fulfillment can be buried in the unexpected. How can you find your path to personal fulfillment?
