  • Marketing is interesting

    Throughout the span of my life, I have been interested in almost everything. Tried almost everything, and found it all to be intriguing at least for a while. I worked a lot in IT because I had an innate ability to understand the concepts, but as I got more into it I started getting annoyed…

  • Bill Clinton’s North Korea Negotiator Has Advice for Trump

    North Korea’s first successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile came at an odd time. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced the feat Tuesday, just days after South Korean President Moon Jae-in visited Washington, where discussions on how to stop the Hermit Kingdon’s nuclear program were at the top of the agenda. Neither the…

  • Races are stupid

    Whilst there seems to be an agreement that race truly does exist, both from racists, leftists, and the right, I must question the theory of what race truly is. Since there does not seem to be an agreement to what that may be. The racists seem to include culture and actions as a part of…

    This Producer Turned Down A Major Label To Record On Her Own | Creative Cash Ep. 4

    Gwen Bunn, 24, was a relatively unknown producer when rapper SchoolBoy Q picked a beat she co-produced to use for the track “Collard Greens.” The song, which features Kendrick Lamar, became one of the lead singles on Q’s debut album Oxymoron, which ended up with a Grammy nomination.

    Bunn’s work on the song led to an offer for a record deal with label BMG. But she chose to sign as a producer and songwriter, instead of an artist. Now, she’s getting paid to write and produce for big names like Childish Gambino, Ty Dolla Sign, and Sean Paul but retains complete creative control over her own music — and has to pay for her own production.

    Making $5,000 Violins in a Backyard | Creative Cash Ep. 3

    Despite having four young children, in August of 2016, Robert Wood quit his job at a renowned violin shop in order to make violins from a converted shed in his backyard. He was able to make the leap because his wife, university admissions counselor Deborah Higham Wood, supports their family financially while Robert builds his business. Robert initially felt guilty for not providing an income while he got Heartwood Violins off the ground, and he still struggles with the societal expectation that a man (and not a woman) provides for his family.

    Vice News met Robert and Deborah to find out how they overcame ingrained patriarchal expectations so that Rob could follow his passions and their family can thrive.

  • The Future of Education

    As technology advances and we get less and less low-skill jobs, we need a whole lot of people with higher education, more importantly, specialities. In order to make more people drift towards higher education, rather than just to work towards money, the system needs to be easy and built around the people that will use…
