#162 | Lead singer Angela Layman Talks About The Business of Running Her Band CrystalEyez
Being in a band is a lot like running any other business. There's the usual paperwork and licenses to deal with, but there's also the challenge of finding the right people to work with. And then there's the matter of money. Like any business, a successful band needs to find a way to generate income and keep costs down. Colorado is an excellent place to be a musician, thanks to the state's supportive arts community. However, it can also be a tough place to make a living as a musician. There are a lot of bands competing for attention, and venues are often reluctant to pay for live music. As a result, many bands rely on merchandise sales and private events to stay afloat. It's not an easy business, but it can be very rewarding. With hard work and a little luck, any band can find success in Colorado. Learn how Angela Layman started her band and is navigating the industry and growing her band in this episode of COS Business Podcast. Premiering June 23rd, 2022 at 10am on our Youtube Channel.

#129 ~ Elizabeth Diane ~ Author of The Heart's Mind
To be yourself requires enormous strength. The heart's mind is effortless self-renewal that provides the strength we need for a lifetime-strength to endure, to overcome, to grow, and to be happy. "The Heart's Mind" examines the internal system that carries us forward, even when we lose the desire for the game of life. The effortless and unconscious manifestation of original thought gives clues to the natural human quality of self-renewing positive motivation. Natural creativity, capability and direction are rooted in the heart's mind, in the internal experience of a person. Elizabeth Diane captures the dynamics of individual self-expression and puts forth a theory about how originality begins, deep within the self."The Heart's Mind" is a book for philosophical minds, a cross between "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle and Simon Sinek's "Start with Why: How great leaders inspire everyone to take action."
