What's Luck Got To Do With It?

6/4/2018
More
• TSP014 • Talent + Opportunity = Success, right…? Why does success feel so far from reach sometimes? Extremely talented people often find little to no success while your averagely-skilled peer might be raking in the dough and digits. We like to think that’s some ol’ bullllll. But digging deeper, why does that happen? This week, we take a look at the recipe for success and why talent only plays one part in the larger equation.

• TSP012 • Let’s Build, Fam. If you hear anyone say the phrase, “Let’s Build, Fam,” you turn and you run, fast. There are d*ck riders and haters afoot. But amidst the wave of fake fans, there are the unsung heroes: The early adopters, the super fans. Artists deal with it, and so do their managers. So we invited Monty, from indie music platform, Soulection, to help us talk about it. Follow Monty on Twitter & IG: @montylov •• Follow us on Twitter & IG: @thousandstory_ • @mrnajiboy •...

• TSP008 • No, this is not about jazz. Unless you’re into that sorta thing, which, in this case, would make this definitely about jazz. We all get a little bit frazzled working day in and day out on our truest passions. Every now and then we need to take a break, and realize that there’s more to life than working ourselves to death. That being said… grab a doobie. Light that sh*t. Inhale. Now pass it, EXCLUSIVELY ON THE LEFT-HAND SIDE. No, but seriously. We’re going discuss how to calm the...

Bedroom Producer's Guide: Okay, Now Pick, Like, Three Hats

4/1/2018
More
• TSP007 • You look terrible in that straw hat. Wear the du-rag, it definitely looks better. More hat conversation? Why? Well, because frankly, you gotta choose a few and commit. That’s your problem, you never commit to anything. But we digress. We talk about choosing a few roles to hone in on and focus all your effort towards in order to actually improve your capabilities in that area. Sounds boring, but it’s actually incredibly titillating, we swear it. Follow us on Twitter & IG:...

Bedroom Producer's Guide: Wearing All The Hats

3/31/2018
More
• TSP006 • The hats are a metaphor, but we just really wanted to say “Wearing Sombreros is a character building exercise.” Du-rags, fedoras, sombreros,… what do all of these things have in common? They are hats. You put them on your head. Much like hats, you play many different roles as an independent freelance creative/business owner. We could have used skin as the metaphor, but that just sounds weird, and strangely fetish-like. Follow us on Twitter & IG: @thousandstory_ • @mrnajiboy •...
