5. We are hiring!

Large publishers, labels, and film studios are downsizing, restructuring, consolidating, going out of business, cutting staff, firing executives, and not accepting new projects.

But BE THE MEDIA - and smart artists who follow our advice - are flourishing. Why is that?

It's because our way of creating and promoting books, music, and video is the wave of the future. We reward and support our fans and patrons, not faceless corporations and conglomerates.

We are happy to be able to help qualified people. We are currently looking to fill internship positions, and hire full-time and part-time employees.

Many positions (especially sales) can be done remotely. Visit out careers page for more information.

Please forward this newsletter to interested candidates, and encourage them to sign up for our newsletter!
