There are many people who have been laid off or fired from jobs they love in radio and the media business. I often get the question, how do I stay in the business doing something that has some upside growth potential.
This weekend, I have 5 idea starters for you. Things you can do for little or no money – with or without partners that can be revenue positive. All you need is a computer, a work ethic and the experience you bring from traditional media.
• What a fired on-air personality could do to port their franchise over to new media.
• An iPad business idea perfect for the talents that radio people possess
• The number one hottest way to create website and mobile content that you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the months ahead
• Blogging for money
• One-big day a year – a big one -- and idea #5 reveals where to begin.
