Prince interview with Tavis Smiley
Singer Prince and Tavis Smiley on Personal Finance and Business
Singer Prince did an interview with Tavis Smiley. It re-aired a few weeks ago. I was very impressed with his small business acumen, his love of family. He spoke lovingly of his sister and all the fun they had when they were fun.
Prince spoke about the problems he had with his business partners. It took years to get control of his catalog of songs. and be paid properly. His complaint was how the business model works against the performer and in favor of the major record labels. But, being the businessman he was he insisted on getting paid what he was due. He persisted with lawsuits and publicity campaigns until finally he won control. I was impressed with his language and his business skills.
He was alert, intelligent, and resourceful financial genius. He had personal finance skills I have not seen in a performer for a long time. I was very impressed with his conversation with Tavis Smiley.
