Michael Lostica: Setting Goals, Managing Time


At a recent day of internship, I spent most of the day queuing more Tumblr posts. I found this to consume much more time than anticipated. Though not distracted, I encounter difficulty finding and presenting relevant content. Since starting to use Google Reader to track multiple shows, I am beginning to better understand being overwhelmed by content, most of which is simply noise.

Michael Lostica: Big-box vs. Startups, Lessons in Early Planning

This week, we follow one of our newest interns, Michael Lostica, as he begins his internship at World Music/crashARTS. We’ll periodically check in with Michael as he forges new paths in music promotion.

In the midst of final projects, booking shows for my band, and assignments at work, I finally secured my internship. After mentioning my search to my manager, she referred me to a firm with which she had coordinated shows with. She spoke highly of them, and described them as a small promotion team that works at a fast pace, resulting in more responsibility being delegated to interns. Though not on the database, the thought of working with World Music/crashARTS in a demanding environment excited me. Not only this, but it was merely weeks before the deadline to finalize internships: I was not in a position to be picky.
