Suzanne Paulinksi is the Founder & CEO of Rock/Star Advocate and the name says it all! She teaches folks to embrace the 'Rock' side of their career as a way to ground themselves and balance their careers to become the 'Star' they so badly want to be! With a long history in the music industry, she's worked for top labels and bumped elbows with the likes of Russell Simmons, who inspired her to carve her own path. Rather than working for the corrupt record labels at large, she decided to create a system of consultation and accountability that has radically changed the lives and careers of her clients.  From the streets of Queens to the halls of Drexler, and the offices of Atlantic Records and Astralwerks Records, she has a resume that would make anyone blush. Her integrity and unique approach specializing in productivity, focus, and accountability have made her one of the most recognizable names in the independent music scene and beyond. By the end of this podcast, you'll hear all about the history of gang-affiliated labels, Suzanne's superhero origin story, what a record deal really is, where so many artists go wrong in their early days, and how you can reinvigorate your career in 2021 and beyond! --- SUBSCRIBE AND SHARE WITH YOUR MUSIC INDUSTRY COLLEAGUES & REVIEW US ON APPLE PODCASTS!
