Huge PPP Loans For Major Artists Made Public

 LISTEN TO THE EPISODE:

SUMMARY:

Lot's of major artists such as Luke Combs, Tim McGraw, Chris Stapelton, Guns N Roses, The Eagles, Kanye West, Nickelback ad others had their names publically released by several publications last week showing the amount of money each applied for and received as a part of the government PPP program. The amounts ranged from $150,000 all the way up to 6 million. These bands are businesses and have employees to pay, but some of these artists could've paid their employees out of their pockets and still been extremely wealthy, but chose to take free money from the government. In this episode, I give my opinion on the situation and take a hard look at how the events of the last 4 months have taken their toll on the music industry ad the business behind it.

Are You Really Thankful?

  

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE

SUMMARY:

We all say "Thank You" and claim to be thankful for the many things and people in our lives, but, do we really mean it, like truly mean it?

In this episode of The Steve Freeman Podcast, I wanted to talk about my thoughts on being thankful, what it means to me and how I can improve the quality of the actions behind the words.

Too often we say thank you as an automatic response with little to no thought behind the words. Thank You, should be an action statement!

I hope you enjoy this episode!
