I've been in the music, media and publishing industry for over 15 years and all to often I see people with talent hit a glass ceiling due to a lack of funding and support. Three years ago I launched a global promotional platform for those with talent to be heard, for free. This has since grown into 2 weekly prime time radio shows and regular reporting for a local youtube channel, alongside guest speaking and hosting events both locally and internationally. I don't charge for airplay and I don't charge for promotion.
The next phase is a free, digital, global music and lifestyle magazine. I am looking for funding to get this off the ground, I need a laptop and some software to do this. That is what the money is for.
I believe in the hidden talent the world has and think money shouldn't mean you arent heard or seen. My platforms are also free to the consumer and I intend to make money from advertising along the line, to fund the magazine. This is a project I am very passionate about and it already has over 3,500 fans on facebook in just over 2 weeks, the radio show page has over 20,000. I really, really believe in this magazine and hope you will help me make it happen.
I welcome comments, editorial requests etc via email: email@example.com
