A.V.A Live Radio Interview with Eddie Heller from Toxic Box

Toxic_boxJacqueline JaxJAX: How did you get your start in music?
Eddie: To be honest, I’ve been involved with music as long as I can remember. We had a baby grand piano in our home growing up and my parents have pictures of me as an infant sitting on my dad’s lap playing. My dad is an accomplished piano player and the 1st recollection I have of playing is around 4 or 5 years old. I played clarinet in elementary school and in 7th grade drums became my main instrument. By high school and college I was playing guitar and bass as well. I was a terrible candidate for music lessons – I had ADHD and had trouble concentrating. Luckily, playing by ear came easy to me. I’m not a virtuoso on any instrument (nobody is paying money to watch me perform on a specific instrument – lol) ……. my strengths are creativity/songwriting, a metronome sense of timing, and hopefully a well rounded appreciation of everything that goes into a song.

Join host Jacqueline Jax as she talks with VP East Coast Sales Royalty Exchange, Preston Sullivan, about the future of music royalty’s and how he’s changing the game. Royalty Exchange is the world’s first market place for buying and selling royalties on a safe and efficient platform. Many thanks to @Preston Sullivan for coming on our show to talk about the company and the future of new artists royalties. Including the importance of registering your songs correctly to build up your royalty values from air play and sales performance over time.

A serial entrepreneur, Preston Sullivan has amassed over 35 years in the business of music and technology. Since graduating from Vanderbilt University in 1977 (Preston was a member of the 1974 Peach Bowl team), he started and ran successful ventures from LA to Nashville. Though a popular entertainer, singer and sax player on the west coast, Sullivan decided to move back to his beloved city of Nashville from Los Angeles and made the transition from artist to music executive in the years that followed. He built and launched companies such as college rock label Carlyle Records with offices in Nashville and Amsterdam, Preston Sullivan Music, ASCAP and Surespin Songs BMI with current copyrights associated with Universal Music Publishing and Cal IV Music. He was in-house producer and studio manager for Sixteenth Avenue Sound whose world renowned clients recorded over 80 platinum and gold records. In 1997 Sullivan jumped into the technology sector and co-founded the successful dotcom Tappedinto.com later called Streamlogics, a pioneer in webcasting and the streaming video business. Sullivan helped lead the company in global sales that resulted in a profitable sale in 2009 to Thomson Reuters.

Sales-Brochure-FrontNow VP of East Coast Sales with Royalty Exchange: Founded in 2011, Royalty Exchange started after identifying the need for a centralized marketplace where royalty owners could monetize their royalties and investors seeking to purchase alternative assets could invest in them.

spring-runway-fashion-2014Learn how to choose a Spring wardrobe that will last more than 1 season.Little black dresses addDiscover the secrets to selecting dresses for your body type.

Highlights: Jax Report Spring Style

DIY FAShion Projects1) Designer DYI: everyone loves a great DO it yourself project however be thoughtful with your project planning but there’s a great DIY like recreating that thousand dollar Pucci bag with some pretty beads and a hot glue gun and there’s walking around with a macaroni mess held together. Y paper clips. Not all DYIs are good. Keep them simple and look at some videos online before deciding on a project that’s for you.

Logo fashion trend spring2) Wearing Logos: if your going to become a walking advertisement for your favorite label, try to keep it to one piece of clothing at a time. There was a time when Jacqueline Kennedy never wore logo tees and thought they were to be saved for youthful rebellious teenagers but if you between the ages of 12-25 a logo tee is certainly appropriate to demonstrate your personal views. But other than for workout wear, still to classic looks that aren’t to wordy. Try to focus on fabric texture, colors and fit instead.

SPring fashion luxury trends3) Focus on Luxury: there are some beautiful pieces this season that you won’t regret spending your luxury dollars on this season. A couple of my favorites are the leather bucket bag, a great pair of suede mules, chunky gold bracelet or necklace.
These styles won’t be trends that pass quickly and they are classic enough to pair them in unlimited ways as you move through seasons. Bag: Mansur Gavriel, $495 each; net-a-porter.

Low_heels spring fashion shoe trends4) Speaking of Shoes: the low heeled pump is back and woman are enjoying this as a work shoe. When it comes to shoes, you can typically be true to yourself and your lifestyle. I personally have never had an issue buying any color, heel shape or style and not been able to make it work down the Lin, however I have a rather large inventory to choose from. So with that being said, if your looking to invest in shoes this season, I like the nude styles, a chunky heel on a colorful or cork shoes is a fun comfortable style, the ankle straps are great and a goddess sandal for the next few months is going to be fun to wear.

Board shorts Spring Fashion Trends5) Board Shorts are those print surf shorts that end at the knee. It looks like a Hawaiian walking short to me. I personally wouldn’t invest in them because the trend is like a beach fad. I think that there’s nothing like all white shorts for the beach and a fresh stripe shirt or halter top in a solid color. You can even get fun with a Hawaiian print but I don’t see the board shorts being a fashion statement past the beach.

Spring tribal Fashion Trends6) Tribal Trend: this trend is a little to heavy for me. The elements can be very over powering for smaller frames and just have so much going on. They can look very costume. Instead try to get your tribal fix with a bag or accessories like earrings or necklace. Even a touch on a tee shirt something that won’t be a huge investment because it’s going to look outdated and silly once it’s over. The farthest I would go in a purchase is perhaps a tunic to wear with jeans for around $100. Tunics can get away with carrying trends further into other seasons because they have a casual wear with jeans feel that doesn’t typically force a statement to far.

spring-2014-picks-17) Piling on Jewels: right now the magazines are pilling on ear cuffs, arm bands, multi layers of bracelets, statement necklaces, statement earrings. Oh my gosh.. Hold on ..this is just a mess. More is not more. I would look and feel ridiculous wearing so much amour. A lady is a lady… Be reasonable and stick to one major statement piece at a time. Two max if they aren’t sitting close to each other and they don’t make you look like a Halloween costume version of yourself. I’m all for stunning jewelry but just don’t try to wear it all at once.

XL_1200x800_08-lgn8) Guilded with rose gold Metallics: metallics can be great for evening but again less is more. Don’t go head to toe metallic. Choose one item. Shoes, a bag, a cuff, or a shirt then mix it with matte fabrics in classic shapes to keep it from being over powering. I like black slacks or jeans, a metallic sheer shirt to lighten up the heaviness and add one bracelet of the color. Then shoes and bag should be neutral matching the black slacks. Your look can be so messy and over done otherwise.

XL_1200x800_09-lgn9) High Shine: high shiny fabrics are flying down the runways with a rain slick look in super bright shades. These trends won’t last long so don’t throw the luxury money at them, instead find pieces under $50 so you won’t kick yourself when your bored. We all like shiny things but clothing that shines wears out is appeal quickly and one the trend is gone people will look at you like your odd walking around in a bright yellow patent leather rain coat unless your a rock star. In which case, rock on you need the attention anyway. It could end up being your trademark.

Hawaiian-GR-Tankdress_look_10) Prints: prints are personal. Some people will be attracted to florals, others to geometrics. Colors are always appealing to the wearer and the viewers because they are so uplifting. But choosing the right sundresses can be tricky. I love fit and flare shapes for all my clients because they hide figure flaws and accent the best parts then work to smooth out the bumps.

Topics will also include SEO Tips of the trade for the best results, the most important things to have on your web pages, and how to get more views. If you want or have your own website, product page or blog, you don’t want to miss this show.

best-free-wordpress-themesSome of the topics that will be discussed are:
Why do we recommend using WordPress for a website?
Easy to use for novice users.

What’s the difference between using self hosted wordpress.org and fully hosted wordpress.com? Experiment with wordpress.com with a limited web page that works terrific for bloggers but is limited when trying to sell products or using adwords. For a more advanced web site with additional features defiantly go with a self hosted web building styles: like sample: http://www.idealocity.com/recent-work/

Is WordPress just for blogging or can it be used for selling products and services?  No it can be used by anyone.

What is SEO?
Search Engine Optimization success is all about content. Be sure to keep things fresh and think about key things like tagging, tiles and content.

Tips:
1) Always use an H1 tag heading and subheadings somewhere inside your post to allow the search engines to identify your topics. Make sure to use them in order. (Heading 1, 2, 3..)
2) Use hyperlinks to other pages and posts related to your content. Never use (click here) instead type out the page title so the key words will help you to get better traction.
3) Add images to enhance your SEO listings. Make sure to use the ALT tag to describe your image. Be very descriptive including the key words only. You do not need to include unimportant words in the title like: the, and, with..

What are some important things to place on your pages and posts to improve your content and SEO? It’s important to create content that aligns with your topic. Identify your sub-niche and stick to it. Don’t diversify to much without adding menu or categories items to your web site frame. It’s very important to be organized with your content.

What are the differences between on-page SEO and off-page SEO?

Behind the Music : Singer Songwriter Héllena

20140330-170201.jpg

Born and raised in a small village in Greece, Héllena always felt the need to move to a big city and chase her musical dreams, which she did in 2005 by relocating to Athens where she took Piano and Modern singing lessons. In 2009 she started writing her own material. Héllena recorded her self titled EP in 2010 at Artemis studios. In late 2011 she decided to take a leap of faith and moved to the UK to work on her debut album with the MTV award winning Producer Stereo Mike. The first single borne out of the collaboration was “Don’t Change”. This set the scene for what’s about to come. Living in London for only a short time, Héllena made it into the top 20 on MTV Unsigned, gaining 3 Gold awards on BEAT100 for her song “Don’t Change”. Héllena had the privilege in March 2013 of performing alongside Stereo Mike at SXSW festival. Early 2014 saw Héllena reach the heights of no2 in the ReverbNation’s Soul/R’N’B charts for London. Héllena is now fast establishing a strong online fanbase as well as performing with her new band at live gigs. May 2014 sees the new single “Dream Big” from her forthcoming album “Body and Soul” being released. This Singer/Songwriter is being tipped for future success and keep your eyes peeled to this talented diverse artist. Héllena has come to the attention of the BBC with an appearance on BBC London 94,9 fm Simon Lederman show in early April 2014. -

AVA Live Radio Interview HellenaINTERVIEW:
Jax: You’ve had a recent name change from Helena Micy to Hellena. What promoted you to change your name?
Hellena: I changed my name for many different reasons but the most important ones are that most of the people were pronouncing “Micy” the wrong way and that now my name is more Hellenic…Greek

Jax: How are you adjusting your name change on social media, your web site and across all your previous advertising?
Hellena: It takes hard work to change your social networks and everything. For example I had to create a whole new Page on Facebook and lost the 2200 fans I managed to gather there in 2 years…so it’s not that fun..but it had to be done.

Jax: Do you feel that this will confuse your current fans?
Hellena: People need time to adjust to the new name now…but it’s not totally different from the one I had before so I guess everything will be as it’s supposed to be in few weeks time.

Jax: How do you feel that this change will benefit your career?
Hellena: I feel that I will benefit from the name change in the long run. It’s memorable, easy to pronounce, unique and it’s 100% me. It feels right…and when something feels right, I go with my guts.

JAX: What have you always wanted to do if your ever given the chance?
Hellena: Singing… and thankfully I’ve been given this chance already. :)

Jax: Would you consider yourself a spiritual person?
Hellena: I believe we’re all the same and that we should treat each other equally. I also try to surrender to the unknown…so hopefully I am a spiritual person.

Jax: Tell me a story about your song. Why you wrote it. Explain the meaning. What does it mean to you? Is it about someone?
Hellena: I think that nobody can find contentment and live a happy life without Dreaming. I love merging real life with imagination. It’s in my DNA. I am personally convinced that imagination and real life are somehow connected. Your thoughts become your reality.
I wrote “Dream Big” during a very difficult period in my life. I wasn’t able to dream at all during this time and I needed something to keep me going and keep me alive. My lyrics for “Dream Big” certainly did. They somehow saved me.

JAX: Do you believe that our journeys are routed by fate or are we predestined to live eternally by reincarnation learning as we move thru time and meeting up with the same souls continuously?
Hellena: I really don’t know. I just try to enjoy life as much as possible and go after my dreams. I really don’t think about next or past lives. I am more concerned about the “NOW”.

JAX: Have you every heard of the power of positive attraction? It is where we attract what ever we think of. If we want success, then we only think of only success. If we think of what we don’t want to happen, we can attract that too. What do you think about the concept? Have you used it in your journey? If so how and did it work?
Hellena: Yes I totally believe that. I’ve seen it happening countless times in my life so I try to think positive as much as possible and go with the flow which is not easy by the way since I am a control freak… hehehe

JAX: I know what you mean about losing inspiration for dreaming. I am a big dreamer, it let’s me create the world I share with others. Things can take my inspiration like people, sadness, exhaustion, burn out….. What happened to cause your block?
Hellena: Many things happened back then which I don’t want to remember since I am in a really good page of my life at the moment, but these things that happened to me…made me stronger and better..helped me evolve as an artist and as a human being too so I am thankful they happened to me in the end. :)

Jax: I was just recently answering an email to a reader who is feeling depressed and in a rut. She has lost her inspiration and her days have become a routine. Can you offer any ideas or advise for her?
Hellena: Sometimes when you’re depressed you cannot push things because they will only get worse. I think acceptance of the situation and belief that things will get better as they always do is the best option but I am not maybe the right person to ask. Hehe
