On this podcast episode, we had a special guest interviewee. Our guest happens to be a super manager in the music and entertainment game, her clientele ranges from Bobby V. (Bobby Valentino), Houston, Texas rap legend Scarface (Gheto Boys), R&B duo group Ruff Endz, as well as her other major accolades; we were able to interview Ms. Melinda Santiago from (The Santiago Firm).

Melinda was able to give THE CAST PODCAST, insight into the music biz and particularly on how she runs her business. She provided context of what young artists (Millennials, Gen Z) need to do to be heard and gain exposure to a global audience.

She also provided the ups and downs of the entertainment business, and the struggles women have in the music business; but also the strong backbone she has, to be able to survive and progress in this male dominated business and industry.

TECHNOLOGY RIDE SHARE COMPANIES UBER & LYFT ARE EARNING WAY MORE THEN YELLOW/GREEN CABS & TAXIS!!!!!!!

By: Economic & Finance Report

It seems that Uber and Lyft are crushing the competition in the customer service ride share industry, if that is even an industry to say the least; these two mega companies created and infiltrated ride share customer service. While they are in the forefront of picking up customers through their online apps, taxis and cabs in metro areas like NYC, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, LA, San Francisco are taking hits and seeing major declines in customer pick ups.

Taxi and cabs are increasingly losing value as the ride share tech giants are taking over the industry, revenue for cabs have gone done drastically even though cabs pickup more people in metro areas such as New York City, statistics show  in NYC, taxis in the city picked 450k-500k passengers in April 2016 as compared to Lyft’s & Uber’s 200k passengers combined according to stats provided by Morgan’s Stanley. Though taxis and cabs picked up more people during that time period; their revenue did not come close to what Uber/Lyft  made during that month of April.

It looks like Lyft and Uber are giving cab/taxis a run for the their money, or  at least “a ride for their money”. -SB

 

US BANKS AHEAD OF THEIR EUROPEAN COUNTERPARTS BECAUSE OF BREXIT!!!!!!!!!

Brexit

By: Economic & Finance Report

The US banks revenue from 2015, beat the revenue of Euro banks by almost double in profit. European banks earned $26B last year, compared to their American counterparts, whom earned $43B the same year (2015).

In 2016 the revenue between the two powerful continents will expand wider; especially since Great Britain has made the decision to BREXIT the EU. Analysts believe this will leave a monstrous dent in the financial sector and the banking industry in Great Britain. With no power players in sight; many investment bankers are already inquiring high end employment agencies about referrals and transfer opportunities in the US, or other market driven countries.

I guess to them, the money does not seem to be in Europe right now; well at least not in Great Britain, with economic prices fluctuating rapidly and uncertainty brewing, where else can anyone turn??? Cheerio -SB
