"Walt Goodridge, in his books...names all the areas that need to be covererd in the music business. He not only names all twenty-five areas, but he also tells you what keeps you in business if you're in one of those areas. If you don't build anything, then you have nothing. If you don't build anything you always have to be a part of somebody else's...." -- Chuck D. from Rap, Race and Reality Delacorte Press. 1997
"A must have for anyone who wants to know the business of Rap Music"-- Sheena Lester, XXL Magazine
|Walt Goodridge has a gift for teaching. And he knew it
very early on. He remembers well that on the first day of elementary school, he found
himself at the front of the room helping his teachers grade his classmates assignments!
At various times in his life he's been a freelance artist, a civil engineer, a radio dj, an artist manager, a record label owner, an author, a network marketer, workshop speaker, inventor, webmaster, and now poet!
"The things that have given me my greatest sense of purpose are those things through which I share my knowledge and insights with others. I've been able to achieve that through art, music, and words in the form of the books I've written." I realized that I have been blessed with the ability to listen, to learn, to analyze, to understand and then to impart that understanding to others. I have certain experiences that have enlightened and empowered me, then I take what I've learned and create channels for others to have the same experience.
The books I've written, from the manual for Hip Hop Entrepreneurs in the music industry, to the most recent "Lessons In Success " are all geared towards fulfilling my personal motto and mission statement:"I share what I know so that others may grow!"
Walt is also the creator of the popular Walt's Friday Inspiration email which contains "thoughts that create success". The Inspirations started as a gift to an email list of friends and family and has now grown to over 26,000 people and has spawned a Poets Niche on his site as well!
