It's that time of year again and this year is a little more special. Off the Record is celebrating its five year anniversary and what better way to do it then to have our yearly roundtable discussion on what set 2014 off in music and social media (i.e. Rihanna back on IG, Elevatorgate with Solange and Jay Z, Mike Brown and Eric Garner protests throughout the country). We'll also be making our 2015 projections. My guests are feisty and know their sh*t. Tune in and I'll let you be the judge.
Past guests have included comedian and ThisIs50 host Jack Thriller, past VIBE Vixen editor, Nicole McGloster, producer Statik Selektah, rapper and songwriter Skillz, and more.

Today, we live in a society of OCD and I want what I want, rudeness. I've never been so exposed to selfish people in all my life. If your under forty your entitlement issues are horrible, If your over forty, your so stuck in your ways, get over it. And, I'm sorry, some of us are aging extremely hard and should not neccessarily brag but, step back and reassist our situations. Ugly is an attitude and not a so called physical appearance. Some of us just suck to social interaction and some of us need to get a grip upon the reality is, you need to pump your brakes and humble yourself ladies and gentlemen.
Join us Thursday Dec 18 7pm EST (Friday 9am Japanese Time) at Divination Radio with your hosts, Fiona Benjamin (Chinese-American Diviner) and Houngan Michael Lennon (Cartomancer).
This week we are joined by young professional tarot reader and college student, Jake Kent who will touch upon some of the struggles he has dealt with being a reader of younger age trying to balance having a job and getting a college degree. He will share some of his personal experiences of sensitive issues with us from coming out of the tarot closet to how it has affected some of his personal relationships and how it has helped shaped him to the young professional he is today.
Jake Kent has been reading Tarot since the age of thirteen and fell in love with the metaphors and symbolism found in them. Jake has a love of creating spreads for his sessions and using the cards in a myriad of ways, from writer’s block to predictive readings. Jake believes that the cards are a direct link to spirit and that readers interpret the messages in them for their clients. Over the years he has explored his intuitive and psychic readings and found great success in connecting these readings to the Tarot.
Is social media killing your BOP? Small business and medium businesses have grown to rely on social media to help them brand, "connect" and sell thier services. Some businesses pay to "boost" thier posts for a seemingly larger reach, increase thier fan bases and elevate the awareness of thier BOP. Most believe that though the stats are promising, they are not effective. Many businesses are awaking to a space of confusion, dissapointment and discouragement over things like lack of reach, connection and interactions with thier brands. Many people have seen a sharp decline in the amount of people who see thier posts. Many people have put so much time into social media that they are killing thier businesses. Social media is an illusion. Yes....it is "social" Yes, people (about 6%) will see your posts but even General Motors with 50,000 fans has realized that there is no more money and time to be wasted in trying to build the brand with face book.
We Business Hippies have awoken from this illusion as well. We are leaving face book in 2015 and we already have cut it down to no more than 20 minutes a day for our whole social media portfolio. We realized that we were killing our business through our reliance on facebook to carry our networking weight. The truth is, no one in your news feed really cares, they are not going to buy your products enough to sustain your business, They are likely to not even see your posts. "They" are not the problem. We are. So tonight we will chat about this honestly. Where we went wrong, how we have damaged our business and what we are going to do to thrive in this ADD nation. Join in the conversation!
