5 Things Businessman must learn from Music Entrepreneur Felix Ghost




There comes a thin line between hard work and smart work. On one side hard work will want you to experience everything while smart work will push you to learn from other individuals weather it is their mistakes or success strategies.

Felix Ghost, CEO of the Biggest record label in UK ‘Winning Records’, is one such notable human who has proved to fuse creativity with business in a constructive and remarkable manner.

Here is a list of 5 such things:

1. Knowing the customer/client:

“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so”, stated Gandhi Ji in a speech at South Africa.

The customer is the fundamental of business and higher customer satisfaction is the supreme goal. The better understanding and connect one has with the customer, the more it benefits the business.

Felix Ghost established Winning Records with the same perspective and to fulfill his dream of assisting and aiding young artists and fresh talent. Having a good understanding of the customer helped him not only in boosting the business but in ramping up his goodwill as well.

2. Risking and Playing Safe:

Risks are a part of business, either you take it or lose the chance. Although in the current scenario, playing safe is considered a greater risk. A wise businessman recognizes the need for taking the risks by analyzing past data, developing innovative strategies, and in-depth research and development.

Felix Ghost other than these methods also calculates the risk to reward ratio which means only if the reward is decent enough, he plunges for the risk. Winner Records is itself a proof of how taking a risk at the correct point has brought success and fame to Felix Ghost.

3. Patience:

It is a well-known fact, patience and foresight are the two most important qualities of a business. Impatience goes hand in hand with a business-bent mindset and is most troublesome at the start-up phase.

Felix Ghost is an individual that inspires many, only after he had gained substantial experience and name in the industry did he set up his company. Patience was the chief key as for a long time he observed and absorbed everything around him which has led him to be a visionary leader today.

4. Mental Stability:

Emotions have no place in business unless you do business with them. To have a sound and practical mind is very important in business. There are very few people who take failure in a positive manner. A lot of startups fail or perform below potential due to the lack of mental strength once faced with failure.

Felix Ghost has been strong mentally, one factor to add-in has been his personal life conditions. He is a man who has proved, “Bloom where ever life plants you” and his story is truly inspiring. It is this strong will that the artists of current generation must inspire from.

5. Innovation and Realism:

Only after innovating and experimenting comes wisdom and vision which benefits in challenging the competitors. Realism is the key aspect of keeping the businesses alive therefore the goals defined for a business must be substantial and real.

Felix Ghost has always been keen on innovating and experimenting with young blood and makes sure the talent is introduced as per industry needs. He always encourages his customers to think out of the box using the regular concepts. This aids in giving strong competition while keeping it real.

Business is a combination of war and sport, both require a decent amount of work and experience. These tips can be a boon to a lot of businessmen wanting to learn from others.

Turning Tragedy into Triumph Through Walking With Anthony




On the morning of February 6, 2010, Anthony Purcell took a moment to admire the churning surf before plunging into the waves off Miami Beach. Though he had made the dive numerous times before, that morning was destined to be different when he crashed into a hidden sandbar, sustaining bruises to his C5 and C6 vertebrae and breaking his neck.

“I was completely submerged and unable to rise to the surface,” Purcell recalls. “Fortunately, my cousin Bernie saw what was happening and came to my rescue. He saved my life, but things would never be the same after that dive.”

Like thousands of others who are confronted with a spinal cord injury (SCI), Purcell plunged headlong into long months of hopelessness and despair. Eventually, however, he learned to turn personal tragedy into triumph as he reached out to fellow SCI victims by launching Walking With Anthony.

Living with SCI: the first dark days

Initial rehabilitation for those with SCIs takes an average of three to six months, during which time they must relearn hundreds of fundamental skills and adjust to what feels like an entirely new body. Unfortunately, after 21 days, Purcell’s insurance stopped paying for this essential treatment, even though he had made only minimal improvement in such a short time.

“Insurance companies cover rehab costs for people with back injuries, but not for people with spinal cord injuries,” explains Purcell. “We were practically thrown to the curb. At that time, I was so immobile that I couldn’t even raise my arms to feed myself.”

Instead of giving up, Purcell’s mother chose to battle his SCI with long-term rehab. She enrolled Purcell in Project Walk, a rehabilitation facility located in Carlsbad, California, but one that came with an annual cost of over $100,000.

“My parents paid for rehabilitation treatment for over three years,” says Purcell. “Throughout that time, they taught me the importance of patience, compassion, and unconditional love.”

Yet despite his family’s support, Purcell still struggled. “Those were dark days when I couldn’t bring myself to accept the bleak prognosis ahead of me,” he says. “I faced life in a wheelchair and the never-ending struggle for healthcare access, coverage, and advocacy. I hit my share of low points, and there were times when I seriously contemplated giving up on life altogether.”

Purcell finds a new purpose in helping others with SCIs

After long months of depression and self-doubt, Purcell’s mother determined it was time for her son to find purpose beyond rehabilitation.

“My mom suggested I start Walking With Anthony to show people with spinal cord injuries that they were not alone,” Purcell remarks. “When I began to focus on other people besides myself, I realized that people all around the world with spinal cord injuries were suffering because of restrictions on coverage and healthcare access. The question that plagued me most was, ‘What about the people with spinal cord injuries who cannot afford the cost of rehabilitation?’ I had no idea how they were managing.”

Purcell and his mother knew they wanted to make a difference for other people with SCIs, starting with the creation of grants to help cover essentials like assistive technology and emergency finances. To date, they have helped over 100 SCI patients get back on their feet after suffering a similar life-altering accident.

Purcell demonstrates the power and necessity of rehab for people with SCIs

After targeted rehab, Purcell’s physical and mental health improved drastically. Today, he is able to care for himself, drive his own car, and has even returned to work.

“Thanks to my family’s financial and emotional support, I am making amazing physical improvement,” Purcell comments. “I mustered the strength to rebuild my life and even found the nerve to message Karen, a high school classmate I’d always had a thing for. We reconnected, our friendship evolved into love, and we tied the knot in 2017.”

After all that, Purcell found the drive to push toward one further personal triumph. He married but did not believe a family was in his future. Regardless of his remarkable progress, physicians told him biological children were not an option.

Despite being paralyzed from the chest down, Purcell continued to look for hope. Finally, Dr. Jesse Mills of UCLA Health’s Male Reproductive Medicine department assured Purcell and his wife that the right medical care and in vitro fertilization could make their dream of becoming parents a reality.

“Payton joined our family in the spring of 2023,” Purcell reports. “For so long, I believed my spinal cord injury had taken everything I cared about, but now I am grateful every day. I work to help other people with spinal cord injuries find the same joy and hope. We provide them with access to specialists, funding to pay for innovative treatments, and the desire to move forward with a focus on the future.”
