    Independent artists all over the world are trooping into the entertainment industry to find a spot for themselves. This is because the entertainment industry has proven to be very enterprising and profitable. However, many people give up before achieving anything tangible because they fail to get signed by a big record label. Getting signed by a record label is not a bad idea; however, being an independent artist isn't less profitable. Being by yourself without getting the support that you see others get might be very discouraging. That is how the situation was in the past, before the digitalization of the music industry through technology. In this book, I examined indie music's evolution and the differences between a record label artist and an independent artist.This book also examines the challenges of an indie artist. The various emotional, professional, and marketing strategies that an artist may face by himself or herself are extensively discussed and analyzed. As an aspiring or trying or independent musician, you would find this valuable book in your struggle to build a name against the odd. The book explains the three categories of challenges and explains the fundamental method s of coping and developing as an indie musician. It teaches indie musicians to learn what it takes and means to do it all themselves.In recent times, it is obvious that technology has replaced the record labels and their benefits as a bridge between an upcoming artist and success. Beautifully enough, it has made it so easy and simple for artists to now make, promote and sell their music without consulting or contacting anyone. It is now a world truly for independence. At this point in time, many artists are quitting their record labels to face their music themselves or set up their own independent record labels. This book clearly exposes and expresses what it looks like to make it as an indie artist and what it takes.    The Evolution o

    Discover a breakthrough way to link employees' daily job duties to the organization's purpose, and watch employee engagement, productivity, and customer satisfaction soar! 
     
    Nearly every organization has a mission, vision, or purpose statement that is displayed on its website or framed and mounted in the executive corridor. But it is largely unknown to employees and seemingly unrelated to their daily jobs. 
     
    As a result, while employees may possess the knowledge and skills to do their jobs, they are unaware of what bestselling customer service author Steve Curtin calls job purpose: how their specific tasks contribute to the organization's reason for being. They understand what to do and how to do it, but not why they do it.  
     
    Curtin offers a fresh tool to overcome this challenge. The Revelation Conversation is a one-on-one exchange where leaders and managers involve employees in the discovery of their total job role, connect job duties to job purpose, and inspire greater employee engagement. Instead of just having assignments to work on, they now have a purpose to work toward. Service quality goes from transactional to exceptional.  
     
    The book contains dozens of illustrations of how leading companies link their corporate ideals to employees' daily job responsibilities. By creating an environment for employees to do work that matters rather than simply check boxes and go through the motions, employers will reap the benefits of higher levels of employee engagement, productivity, and customer satisfaction.

    A sobering excavation of how deeply nineteenth-century American banks were entwined with the institution of slavery. 
     
    It’s now widely understood that the fullest expression of nineteenth-century American capitalism was found in the structures of chattel slavery. It’s also understood that almost every other institution and aspect of life then was at least entangled with—and often profited from—slavery’s perpetuation. Yet as Sharon Ann Murphy shows in her powerful and unprecedented book, the centrality of enslaved labor to banking in the antebellum United States is far greater than previously thought. 
      
    Banking on Slavery sheds light on precisely how the financial relationships between banks and slaveholders worked across the nineteenth-century South. Murphy argues that the rapid spread of slavery in the South during the 1820s and ’30s depended significantly upon southern banks’ willingness to financialize enslaved lives, with the use of enslaved individuals as loan collateral proving central to these financial relationships. She makes clear how southern banks were ready—and, in some cases, even eager—to alter time-honored banking practices to meet the needs of slaveholders. In the end, many of these banks sacrificed themselves in their efforts to stabilize the slave economy. Murphy also details how banks and slaveholders transformed enslaved lives from physical bodies into abstract capital assets. Her book provides an essential examination of how our nation’s financial history is more intimately intertwined with the dehumanizing institution of slavery than scholars have previously thought.
