“Internet Famous VIP Intensives” is the name of my brand-spanking new program for artists and entrepreneurs who want personalized attention and technical assistance with creating their online presence.
You get a private consultation day with me to work out a customized marketing plan, as well as a technical team (graphic/web designers, video editors, virtual assistants, content creators, etc) with the expertise to bring it to life.
You also get follow up calls with me at 30, 60, and 90 days to keep you on track, so it’s like getting an online marketing coach AND a virtual team of your own!
Whenever I do private consultations, I notice that clients often need help with the technical details such as graphic and web design, video editing, content creation. This package also includes a team of technical assistants so you don’t have to pull out your hair doing it all by yourself ;-). I’m quite excited about this program!!
The price is $2500 for a full-day consultation, tech help from my team, and 3 follow up calls.

Today’s podcast is a timely one. It’s my interview with Steven Zelin, aka “The Singing CPA” on the topic of “Record Keeping for Musicians”. Taxes, like death, is inevitable, and if you are a working musician, you must also file taxes on your musical income.
Steven Zelin is a CPA with a love of music and comedy, and has written songs such as “Dear IRS” and “If You Don’t Like Paying Taxes (Clap Your Hands)”. And for the past few years, he has a standing April 15th Tax Day gig performing at the main post office in NYC. So when the idea to write about this topic came up, he was the first person who came to mind. And when you think about it, he has one heck of a niche!
Steven shares a lot of great info on how musicians can keep better records to prepare for tax day. So tune in!

This morning, March 20th at 11am, I’ll be giving a talk, “Unlock Your Star Potential!” on the Joyce Barrie & Friends show. I’ve stopped counting how many times I’ve been a guest on her show – I’m practically a regular! 😉 In addition to sharing my tips, Joyce usually asks me to sing a song, so it’s always a fun time for me!
UPDATE – Listen to the show here:

I didn’t go to South by Southwest this year, but I did attend Couch by Couchwest, the virtual music conference “where the only hipster is you”. As today is St. Patrick’s Day, I chose to do an a capella cover of “St. Patrick’s Day” by John Mayer. The song has nothing to do with being Irish or green beer, but I like it just the same.
From the Couch by Couchwest blog:
CXCW is the slackers alternative to SXSW. During the week of March 11-18, 2012 musicians from around the world submit videos recorded on a couch, porch, bathroom…anywhere but the stage…for our enjoyment from the comfort of our living rooms. We hope to bring together as many people as possible who are stuck home while all their friends are stuck in the crowds of Austin, TX. So crack open a beer, crank up the volume, and enjoy the couch!
This podcast was inspired by, and dedicated to, the musicians in Ariel Hyatt’s Music Mastermind. One of my favorite sayings is that “You never know where you’ll meet your next collaborator”, and as the former “Mistress of the Mastermind”, I’ve seen many collaborations take place among the musicians and music businesses in the group. I joined the group when it started in 2008, and now this Musician’s Mastermind has over 1240 members!
The idea behind a mastermind group is that two people can accomplish more than one, and when you put two or more minds together to get something done, resources are multiplied.
If you haven’t yet read the business classic, Think and Grow Rich, run out and get it. It just might change your life.
It’s time for more Social Media Classes in NYC!
I’ve been having a great time teaching my classes via Skillshare.com. I’ve met tons of interesting people, and my teaching chops can’t help but get better. The folks at Skillshare must agree, as I’ve just been awarded a “Master Teacher” designation. How cool is that?
