If there’s one thing creative people love to do, it’s creating things. And if there’s one thing creative people hate to do, it’s selling what they created. For many, the fear of selling themselves and their ideas to other people seems to rank right up there with the fear of public speaking. And while it’s the part of the process that causes the most anxiety, we can all become better at selling with a few solid tips. In this episode, Blueprint breaks down what he’s learned from some sales books he’s been reading into Ten Lessons that anybody should be able to run with. If you fear or suck at sales, like most of us do, don’t sleep on this episode.
To tell the truth, we’ve been trying to avoid talking about the news of Chris Brown and Soulja Boy agreeing to have a pay-per-view fight for a couple of weeks now, but another week has gone by with this story dominating the hip-hop news cycle. Even worse, more rappers are piling on and trying to follow their lead. What most people don’t remember is that this is not the first time this has happened in hip-hop. In this episode, we talk about the past, the present, and what we think is the future of rappers actually wanting to put on gloves and fight each other for money.
