Join professional musician Earl and professional artist Hannah in a conversation based on their up coming book "Business Hippies Guide to Survival in the Modern World"... Planning the Success of your Business of Passion.
All businesses and people must plan for their success. It really doesnt matter what type of business you own or what your personal goals in life may be, you will not likely get there with out a plan. This is going to be a informationally jam packed half hour where we will discuss how to start planning successes rather than overting challenges. Those of us who own a business of passion where we are our brands are most in need of having a strong plan. We can not stumble into success with out it. It really doesnt matter how great your art is, how cool your songs are, how great you do nails or cut hair or make cup cakes if the world recieving your service is not part of your active plan. How do we reach our audiences? How do we become visible to our markets? How do we determine what market we should be projecting to? How much of our profit do we reinvest? How much does social media help? Should I pay some one to help?
There are so many questions when we start planning our success. Join us and learn how we are working daily to ensure the health of our businesses and our futures and learn some of our missteps too! This discussion is not just for those of you who are business owners, there is a lot of practical advise for everyday living in this segment as well. Plan your success, plan your life! So join in, call in or chat in!

And today's guest is Nashville Underground Management's Kylie Rothfield, who will be performing at Nashville Pride on the 14th at noon, The Bluebird Cafe on June 22 at 6pm AND the Instruments of Joy Benefit on the 29th!
Crafting songs that combine elements of soul, blues and pop, Kylie Rothfield’s music is unique, honest, and universally appealing.

Her self-released debut EP “Rag Doll” – produced by Russ Pahl and set for release April 13th - is truly a testament to her artistry.

If you are caught in the second job trap we will discuss how to make an exit plan to get out of it and back on the road to successfully thriving in your business of passion!

Join professional musican Earl and professional artist Hannah in a frank discussion on having businesses of passion, navigating our successes and our failures.
What is a business of passion? A buisness of passion typically refers to a business that is creative based. This thought could include artists of all kinds. Painters, Musicians, Photographers, Writers, Professional Bloggers, Beauticians, Coaches,Chefs, Healers and so on. But it also includes everyone who is an entrepreneur in our opinion. Passion is a vital ingrediant to being successful in any business. So is a plan of success.
We call ourselves "business hippies" which actually started as a joke in our home. Truth be told the term "hippie" was not one that either of us really thought of as defining or even desirable. But! Once we learned the value of aligning our internal core values with our work choices we ended up in a space where we were almost forced to rebuild our businesses to reflect what was important to us, which were very simple living, rooted values. Sooo the term "business hippie" became a title that we now love to hold!
Tune in and share with us your thoughts on having businesses of passion, discuss how you are planning your success to include corevalues such as love, joy, family time and so on. Hear some stories about our journey to alignment with our core values which brought us a ton of success and challanges and share with us how your journey is coming along.

In the past few years, the real estate industry has seen a consumer shift in how people get information on the value of their homes. People are becoming more and more comfortable using technology in their everyday lives and as such, the real estate industry is seeing more and more people turn first to their digital devices versus contacting a Realtor.
Consumers are empowered. They are going online to find their own neighborhood information and sales data. For digitally savvy consumers, the era of contacting a Realtor to find out their home’s values is almost gone. The days of having a Realtor show up at your door with a comparative market analysis seems old and antiquated to them. Sadly however, many people are taking the information they come across online as fact and unfortunately are being deceived.
This episode will focus on where to find the best information about your neighborhood market and more importantly, why going to a national site isn't the best option for getting local sales data.
