A Distribution Network waiting for Marching Orders
One of the huge elements of the underground economy is movie and music piracy. You have a lot of street venders who have established businesses and major distributors who supply them. I think they are an army waiting for marching orders and can make it possible for independent artist like Janet Jackson, Prince and the Time band to get there music directly to the consumers. These entrepreneurs are already moving million upon millions of illegal media. With the CD duplication technology out there independent artist could license these distributors who have the line of street distribution to put there music in the hands of the consumers legally. All they have to do is give the distributor a license and a master album and it is all on and sell as many if not more CD’s than the major labels sell in stores and certainly more than what the independent distributors sell in stores with lower mark ups, at lower prices for at least an equal profit margin. I am just brainstorming. But if enough independent artist team up and do this the merchandise would be diverse, well received and an exciting movement to the streets and an opportunity for many to do what they are already doing but legally. Independent artist should bypass the record stores and take it to the streets directly that should be the marketing strategy of 2009-10 and the future.

I am about the begin to take minor risks basically I am the equipment man and I plan to use people who has been overlooked and give them an opportunity to do things that they have the ability to do if they had the proper equipment. I am sort of like springing out and creating activities outside what I do on my own in order to accelerate actions. My first move is to hire a songwriter and screenwriter. With the understanding that I do not own them behind these smell investments and they have the liberty to do things for themselves outside of the projects I will assign them. But my projects must have the priorities.
I could use one more spending sprees not for fun but to complete an investment, aside from the above actions I am about or in the process of building another music studio. I have the resources to build this studio but until I receive another income, I feel it would be reckless spending. I am at the borderline of being financial responsible. These guys seem to be an army and a movement ready to go at it and deserve to be invested in. I asked my sister did she want to be my partner code for taking some of the financial commitments away from me. See I need people who I can depend on to help pay for us to play and I can put those men into the game in a week or two. Yes I have the line of credit, but I do not have the income to go all out and invest in these artists. I guess that is the meaning of risk. A risk I am not totally ready to take until I get return on what I did already. My projection is these guys might not give me any return for about 6 months at a minimum if done right with proper preparation, the good thing is they have been at this for some time now, they just need the equipment. There is a legitimate reason why they cannot invest in themselves now and it has everything to do with where they were when they learned there skills and became committed to the movement. Yes this is a movement that I am debating on investing in and contracts might have to be drawn up. These men deserve a break they are basically fresh out of prison, talented and committed to doing it right this time. I wonder if I am being selfish and am I letting them down. All they are asking for is a quality home studio to work out of. Or are you’ll being selfish by holding on to me income?
