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.
Now 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. Our mission is simply to provide a platform where all types of royalty assets, such as music, television and film or patents, intellectual property, and mineral rights, can be bought or sold in an effort to bring value to both the investor and seller.

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.
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?

Justin J Grant is a singer/multi-instrumentalist from Newry, N.Ireland. He has been performing in public from the age of fifteen, formerly as the front man of a locally acclaimed six piece band and currently as a solo artist playing all over Ireland and the U.K. Justin is a prolific writer and has an extensive Catalogue of wonderful melody driven contemporary songs of which fourteen are presented on his debut album, “ Break The Wing “
JAX: Where were you born and where have you been living for the past 10 years.
JUSTIN: I was born in Newry Co Down N. Ireland, I got interested in music from an early age. And then people told me I could sing I just thought I was making a funny noise, So I ended up playing guitar and singing in bands. In 2001 I had ideas about songs of my own so I bought a cheap ticket & headed for the bright lights of Belfast City. And I am very grateful I have had the chance to enlighten a few peoples ear holes along the way with my music.
JAX: Why do you create music and what do you most love about it?
JUSTIN: Well I had nothing else to do, I started out as a guitar player back then I had to sing well because nobody else wanted to sing my songs, And I had a natural talent for the guitar because my father was a musician he tought me how to play and I really liked the idea about that. My passion for song blossomed on the back of a love for an eclectic range of stars like The Mamas and Papas, The Beatles, David Bowie, Tim Hardin, Glen Campbell, Hendrix, Cream, And I used to watch people playing on stage and thought wow hey one day that could be me and now it appears to be that way, Weather people like it or not is neither here nor there. So I just started writing more songs working with my then producer/ manager Andy Cowan Martin where we shuffled songs about, From some scratchy beginnings we have ended up with what I think is a really great album of which I am very proud.
JAX: Do you play gigs, tour or primarily share your music online? And are there any challenges to what your doing?
JUSTIN: Last year I played live across Ireland and England and we have picked up radio play in Japan, Nashville, Spain, Holland, UK Ireland and number 10 in the UK Country charts. At the moment I am working on new material writing recording demos that sort of thing, All I can do is put my music out there and hope people like it, And if they don’t well I can always do a runner Hee Hee. Well the internet is taking over in a big so I am afraid to say I will have to let peter the carrier pigeon go,…But for the time being if any one wants to get a hold of my music then go to I tunes/ Amazon & just squirt Justin J Grant “Break the Wing” into the web & I shall pop up.
JAX: Name 3 words that best describe you and tell me why.
JUSTIN: Happy Hoppy Floppy Well because I am a happy kinda guy, Hoppy because I cant sit down always on the go go me & floppy because I have long-lasting floppy disk hair.
JAX: What’s the music scene like where you are? Best places to go to hear music?
JUSTIN: Ireland has always had a great music scene, My best venues for original music would have to be the Spirit Store in Dundalk, Amplified Bar in Newry & The Black Box Belfast.
JAX: Tell me about your best music moment.
JUSTIN: My best music moment would have to be back in 2008 watching Glen Campbell perform Wichita Lineman Live at the waterfront hall in Belfast, tugs at my heart and soul every time.
Hey I have had a few great moments in my life and this is one of them, Thanks for having me. I am humbled XO

Top 5 Ways To Deal with Fear?
1) Find something that your more afraid of and throw your energy there. For instance, compare your current fear to a level of regretting that you never moved forward.
2) Run thru your fear. Focus on what will happen if you move forward? Ask yourself what’s the worst that can happen.
3) Deal with your real limitations. Think about your doubts and question is they are 100% true.
4) Don’t give fear more credit than your other emotions. Fear is an emotion but not the end point of your emotional being. Don’t give fear all your energy.
5) Don’t put pressure on yourself. Realize that your not the first person to have the idea that your stressing over. Relax and take comfort in the fact that your everyone is trying to live their dreams.
PURSUING YOUR DREAM JOB
Question: I recently got my chance to start my dream job and I’m worried about taking that leap. It would mean that I have to let go of what I’m doing now and make less money. How can I stop worrying about the security of what I have now to go for my dreams? Sara- Ohio
GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN
Find out about going against the norm. What’s good for one life isn’t the best for all. Set your own life goals and don’t fear pursuing your passions.
FEAR OF TRUSTING
I was in an abusive relationship recently and now I’m afraid that I won’t see the signs again. How can I learn to trust myself again? Kimberly – Destin, FL
You can’t make someone change their mind so education is key to helping others with denial. Does it seem that everyone and their dog is working against you? Are you just a poor innocent victim in what seems to be one huge conspiracy against you? How does your ego effect your level of denial?
AM I GAY?
Im 20 years old. My worrying all began when my buddy asked if I was gay and I got defensive saying F*** You! Ever since then I have been worried that I have been gay all along and never realized it. I will sit at home and think about how I might be gay. I delve very deep into my reasoning and it causes extreme fear and panic. For instance my biggest reasoning is that I can’t seem to talk to girls. Now before all this worrying I never thought I was gay and just thought I was scared of girls, but now I fear that I can’t talk to girls cause I’ve been gay this whole time. Another thing that happens is if I see a guy now I get a weird feeling in my stomach and that occurs with just a look no matter what they look like and then I start worrying that I got attracted to them. Basically I don’t care if I’m gay or straight I just can’t stand this worrying about GAY.
