I realized something recently; where it relates to WRITING/PUBLISHING/STREET MARKETING/MULTI-MEDIA PRODUCTION, and EARNED IMPRESSIONS/ACKNOWLEDGEMENT for all of the above, I am the LEADER, CHIEF, COOK & BOTTLE WASHER.
Nobody in this business can claim ALL of the above. And thats because my hands are (and have been) in everything. And, as much as I love to do it all, I’ve also been fortunate to MASTER IT ALL
Pick any TOP URBAN LIT AUTHOR, and they DO NOT have the vast amount of skills that I possess. There’s that AND my 3-POINTERS! (wink wink)
But what is my point, you ask? Well, for one I often drop jewels relating to these various areas, whether its on video or written as a post. But, being TOTALLY HONEST? There’s no way for you to apply my general information to your SPECIFIC goals. For instance; you’re looking to publish a COOK BOOK, something my friend Champagne Palumbo might want to do (edit: in fact, she’s done just that!); then something like that would not be formatted like the books my friend Milton Davis writes. Champagne cooks and fuses that with her love for music. Milton writes children’s books that are historically-based in a fictional/afrocentric sort of way (right Milton? Hope I’m getting that right!)
But, you would find neither creator on the streets selling their books like my friends Brad Bathgate or once upon a time) Treasure Blue might do, because those brothers are focused on the working class. Sure, they will accept anybody’s purchase, but they know exactly who their market is; the streets and those who walk them, as well as those who dare to.
Hence, I could not give the same advice to you if you were to market your books in the street, as I would to those who love to cook. That’s DIFFERENT ADVICE. But, it’s advice that I’m equipped to give.
Naturally, giving advice comes from experiencing and having successfully mastered those experiences. Add to that, my level of awareness, and it speaks to my opening statement, about me being the LEADER. Now, if you don’t call on me, then you might have plenty of dough-rae-mi like my friend Russell Simmons who can delegate & outsource such tasks to those individuals who master those specific areas. However, in the end they’d all hafta come together as one, before Russell, for the final decision. Is that all accessible to you? Or are you gonna call on a pro? Now, I’m not the ONLY PRO. I’m just one of the fortunate ones who have earned some of the GREATEST NOTORIETY and too, I have amassed the most experience for the same. My man Hustle Simmons, aka Hotep does a lot of what I do; although his books are mostly non-fiction. He has accomplished great things here in Atlanta and beyond in publishing & video productions for the same. However, I believe he would also tell you that LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION is sure nuff the ace card in connecting the dots. And you just can’t be everywhere all at once. I’m sure if he was up in New York, doing what I was doing, it would be HIM in the New York Times, Time Magazine & on ABC World News Now. It might be HIM that has been on the Michael Baisley show a dozen times, and not me, since Baisley. (*I say the Baisley name in jest because a lot of people mispronounce his name. So why I can’t be one of them?) But seriously, Baisden started his once-upon-a-time show in New York. I use to CAMP OUT at the places he appeared at! I use to attack (market to) his audience, hand-to-hand, face-to-face. All that started in New York.
As much as there are indeed resources in ATL, the publishing, music & entertainment world is “up top” in NY. But timing is also important. Because things change! New York can no longer claim it all. The South has come alive. A lot of work to do, and a lot of ignorance to clean up, but it’s happening.
The haves will still take advantage of the have-nots; if only the have-nots would learn to do a web search! Research! They would not be taken advantage of! Why Relentless? Because AWARENESS begets CONSCIOUS BEHAVIOR!
I know a lady who got taken for 4k down here (in the South), simply because she didn’t do her research! Yes-yes, that could also take place in the big city, but trust and believe that there are more information resources there; enuf that you’d hafta be BLIND to miss them. Ignorance is everywhere, indeed.
I know you’ve heard “EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON.” And to THAT I hafta say that EVERYTHING iS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. So, you now see a shift in entertainment; just as the Internet has become the new TV, and as Cassette tapes have given way to DVDs, so too has HOLLYWOOD’S energy shifted. So-called HOLLYWOOD is no longer the Goliath with ALL THE CHIPS. Tyler Perry has chips now. Tim Reed has chips now. And there are so many others who are eating from the once upon a time monopoly that HOLLYWOOD once claimed. NO MORE! Creators of bootlegs, Internet torrents and those that support it are eating or saving money now. You can make a movie in a day, with little or no money today. All you need is time, some experience and some friends. What? Have no money and still want to be entertained? Well, HELLO YOUTUBE! http://www.youtube.com/relentless
And while I have over 600 clips on Youtube, there are others with way more. There’s just LOADS of entertainment, information & resources on YOUTUBE. Want to learn to make shoes? Ask YOUTUBE. Want to learn how to be an exterminator? A Carpenter? An astronaut? YOUTUBE, YOUTUBE, YOUTUBE. But, unless its a RELENTLESS YOUTUBE VIDEO, you STILL will not earn the depth of knowledge and information that you would get from sitting with yours truly, RELENTLESS AARON for an hour. So! HERE’S THE DEAL. Many of you have expressed interest in a CONSULTATION WITH ME. That is time out of my schedule so that I can sit down and talk with you and show you how. I draw up a blueprint/plan for you to follow. I do my research/my due diligence before we meet and I sharpen up on information about you and your market so as to better assist you, and when you leave me or finish the phone call, you do so with a wealth of understanding; enuf so that you will NEVER get taken advantage of, such that happened with the 4k woman.
*BUT THERE’S MORE.
With that consultation, you also receive 10 copies of my killer erotic thriller, Extra Marital Affairs, retail price $15.00
So whats that mean? It means that if you turn around and decide to sell these books, instead of give them away, you will see $150. Therefore, your consultation that would be $750 is now $600.00
People, NOW IS THE TIME to take advantage of this offer.
THIS WEEK ONLY: August 19th thru 24th I will make time to do consultations, in person (at my office) or via phone, and its for the best price you’ll ever get; the best deal I’ll ever give.
