I found Happiness and You can too.

iStock_000004507079_ExtraSmallYes. I am happy. Sure, I might complain once in a while about the train being late or the slow walking tourist in “my” New York sidewalks, but it is never enough to make me think “I am not happy”. I found happiness. The great thing is that you can too! You just need to look in the right place.

That the industry was changing and so should the consumer mindset. I wanted to be part of that change. And little by little, video streaming and downloading has been taking over without people really noticing too much. [Read more…]

Is there a real online series business model?

the carrot 250px1I have ran businesses before, and I have made it sometimes bad, and sometimes worst. And a few times I would make good decisions. I have learned from many bad decisions and some good ones. And I have observed to the good ones, and remember them.

I have also studied very closely the career of very successful (in my opinion) entrepreneur  business and innovatives minds. I have looked for habits and patterns that I can mimic and eventually make my own.

I was not born a business person, but I got interested after realizing that now, filmmaking, production, and creativity itself, are all businesses.
