    As always, very informative… You may want to consider targeting this advice which speaks directly to those (now over 50 million world wide) that celebrate Kwanzaa (Dec. 26-Jan.1) each year. On the forth day, Ujamaa-cooperative economics, these are the type gifts you are supposed to give, to especially instill in our children financial principles for life.
    Thanks for sharing. I’ll pass it along.

    Hi Rob,

    I attended the Hip Hop Summit in Chicago, and I felt inspired by your comments to educate ourselves on different avenues that are available but yet unknown to the youth to explore. Also I was inspired by your contributions within the Hip Hop community. I personally feel I can be instrumental to my community by remaining in Finance and seeking an MBA (in 2013) to eventually become a consultant or financial advisor. In the interim, I would like to know your advice on the best approach to overcoming the financial hurdle of funding a MBA degree and also any resource you know which displays all career opportunities available within the music/entertainment industry.

    Thanks & Regards,,

      It was great meeting you Marie! I’d say take a look at the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management ( That organization provides full fellowships to attend one of its member schools. I actually received a fellowship from CGSM and I can tell you that it’s a great organization.

      I’d encourage you to join music and entertainment groups on LinkedIn for access to job info. However, the best jobs, in my opinion, aren’t on any website. You’ll want to network with as may people as you can in order to hear about those.
