Let me help you make consistent money with
YOUR creative talents.
There’s never been a better time for you to do this.
I’ve learned first-hand (and I’ll share the details) that, as an artist, you have a CHOICE:
1. WAIT for an agent, manager, record label, or American Idol to come along and save you, while you toil away in a day job you hate and numb yourself with alcohol, drugs, or Entourage reruns (and feel like Jane or Johnny Drama)
2. CONTROL your own career. MAKE your own mark. START getting paid to do the thing you love.
Which one sounds good to you?
If it’s #2, I can show you how.
Hi, I’m Ezina.
I’m passionate about helping creative people like you make money and miracles with their art. In fact, I want you to repeat after me:
NO ARTIST SHOULD BE POOR. (Tweet that)
As a lifelong professional vocalist and musician with a business degree, I can help you create a viable business with your creativity.
And, as someone who went from being put on the shelf to selling thousands of Books and CDs myself, I’m living proof that it’s totally doable.
I started making music at 6. I had the lucky break (or so I thought) to get signed at 18.
I’d just won the title of Miss Black USA, so the record company was happy to cash in and offer me a recording contract.
I headed into the studio with household-name producers.
We recorded an album, one everyone in the studio said they loved. They sent it out to tastemakers, who loved it, too. “We’re going to chart, we’re going to the Grammys…”
Everyone pumped me up, and I thought, This is it. I’ve got a music career.
Meanwhile, a former Miss America was also making an album. I was Miss Black USA, she was Miss America, enough said.
My label decided to push her record, and save mine for “next.”
Next never happened.
The label shuffled me around to different handlers, then dropped me like a hot potato.
My life had been a whirlwind of pageant appearances, touring, photo ops, signing contracts, and celebrating. And now, it all came to a screeching halt.
Thinking I was done as an artist, I went to business school.
After Business school, I got that creative itch so I moved to New York to study opera at Juilliard. The coursework was intense. I was miserable. I knew I HAD to make my songs. I had a whole crate full of songs I’d written and they needed to get out. I worked my corporate job by day, attended Juilliard at night, and started to save money. With enough saved, I went into the studio, recorded one song after another after another, till I had 10 songs.
Everything the label had promised to do, I did for myself: record release party, tv appearances, tours, press kits, one-sheets, radio promotion, sponsors, gear endorsements, clothing stylist, photoshoots,etc. I did it all ghetto style. Trunk full of CDs, trunk full of white padded envelopes (this was pre-Internet, pre-PayPal).
I achieved what everyone said was impossible. I sold 10,000 CDs.
If I can do that, so can you.
So why’d I shift to coaching?
I’m sure that’s what you’re wondering.
“If she’s so good at making music and making a living from it, why not stick with that?”
I still love music. I still make it.
But it kills me to see artists struggle to make a living.
And, I had a series of wakeup calls that let me know I HAD to help them.
After witnessing the devastation of the World Trade Center from my window, I decided that I had to help other artists thrive. The morning of the attacks I was on my way into the towers to work out in my gym, I couldn’t go inside cause the building had been hit. Like everyone in NYC that day, I was sent home. That afternoon, I watched the buildings crumple from the window of my apartment. I couldn’t cry. My tears were not flowing, but art was. It was flowing everywhere and from what seemed like every artist in NYC.
During this time the city was held together through art, music and community.
Through the grey haze that covered the city there was uplifting art, music, photographs, prose and poetry that had blossomed onto the streets and subways. Even the graffiti was out of this world gorgeous! I was so proud of the artists who put their work out there.
These images and sounds were healing people and I was struck by how powerful we all are when we share our artistic contributions with the world. We move the world forward by sharing our creativity.
Too many of my friends were overworked and underpaid and living the starving artist life. Too many artists are still shrinking and buying into the false belief of artistic suffering and living a life of lack. It’s time to shine a spotlight on all of your gifts.
#IT’S YOUR TIME.
My epiphany began at the Wailing Wall in Israel and when I stepped into the Ganga Rivers in India, I came out a different person. My desire to be a harbinger of peace and joy became sealed in my soul. My mission to lead artists to health and wealth was born.
I’ve helped countless musicians, singers, actresses, videographers, authors, fine artists and healing artists to make money from their creations.
I said it at the top, and I’ll say it again:
No artist should be poor.
If you create, I can help you make money.
No, you don’t have to be a household name.
No, you don’t have to have a pageant crown.
No, you don’t have to already have an Instagram following in the millions.
