Science Explains Why Girls Went So Crazy For The Beatles | Veooz | The Beatles and the Business World | Scoop.it
This Sunday marks the 50th anniversary of John, Paul, George, and Ringo's debut appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in the US. Coined in October 1963 during the Beatles' tour of Scotland, the extent of Beatlemania in the US is obvious from record sales alone. Between the 1964 release of I Want to Hold Your Hand on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Let it Be EP in 1970, the Lads from Liverpool had a Number One single for, on average, one out of every six weeks and a top-selling album every third week .

The Beatles vs. the Taxman: A Former Manager Recalls Yesterday     | The Beatles and the Business World | Scoop.it
Fifty years ago this weekend, four guys got on TV before a screaming audience and drew more U.S. viewers than any show ever had. Over the next six years, they made sublime music, girls faint and a ton of money. Below, Peter Brown, right hand to Beatles manager Brian Epstein, remembers how they did it all.

The Beatles Teach Entrepreneurship Better Than Business School Does

The Beatles Teach Entrepreneurship Better Than Business School Does | The Beatles and the Business World | Scoop.it
While many B-school programs emphasize rigid planning and analysis, starting a business relies far more on creativity and experimentation
Bob Meyers's insight:

"Entrepreneurship is also about creating a mindset with a bias towards action, developing the ability to listen to what’s going on around you, collaborating, synthesizing disparate concepts into whole parts, learning through failure, and jointly making a product that an end user will love and consume.  Just playing in a band."-Panos Panay.  I love this quote because it gives great qualities of a leader, which The Beatles clearly were in music as well as business.  This article gives you an idea why I chose this topic.

Behind the Beatles-iTunes deal

Behind the Beatles-iTunes deal | The Beatles and the Business World | Scoop.it
Getting Apple, Apple Corps., EMI, Sony/ATV and Yoko Ono to agree took some doing “While details remain to be worked out, Fortune has learned that iTunes is close to a deal to bring the Beatles catalog online.” So wrote Tim Arango, now at New York Times, in Fortune‘s Nov. 27, 2006 issue. “As Fortune went […]
Bob Meyers's insight:

This was one of the best business deals that Apple Corps, the Beatles' company, could make.  This did take some time and careful consideration but it remains one of the biggest key deals that iTunes could get to make, if not the biggest.  The Beatles' deal with iTunes helped other artists hesitant to go on iTunes reconsider their position on digitally-downloaded music..

The Beatles as a Muse for Success in Business

The Beatles as a Muse for Success in Business | The Beatles and the Business World | Scoop.it
“Come Together: The Business Wisdom of the Beatles” treats the band’s successes and failures as a sort of Rosetta Stone for business types everywhere.
Bob Meyers's insight:

This article gives an outline of some Beatles business lessons in the new book "Come Together The Business Wisdom of The Beatles."  One of my favorites, “All eyes shifted to Paul, expecting rejection, perhaps an outburst,” according to a new book, “Come Together: The Business Wisdom of The Beatles.”(Turner Publishing, $24.95). Instead, McCartney defused the tension with this: “That’s quite good, actually.” Lennon’s chords, pounded out in a fit of pique, make up the song’s now-famous opening.       

“The underlying disagreement about whether the song had merit in the broader scheme of things did not disappear,” the book concludes, “but resolving the conflict informed the work and made it stronger, rather than destroying it.”  I love this because it gives a great example of resolving conflict, key in the business world.

3 Men Who Made the Beatles into a Booming Business

3 Men Who Made the Beatles into a Booming Business | The Beatles and the Business World | Scoop.it
The picture above is one of the signature images of the 20th century.
Bob Meyers's insight:

This article proves that, in order to be successful in the world of music AND the world of business, you must have people around you that have your best interest in mind and who are not out for themselves.  The Beatles' manager Brian Epstein was the most determined, loyal, hard-working, and dedicated person in the Beatles' inner circle.  He would do anything for them and clearly lived for them.  Sir George Martin was key in helping the band develop their sound in the studio.  Without him, Beatles album67-'70)s such as "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", "The White Album", and all of their experimental, late albums ('67-'70) would never be the same.  That alone is a testiment to Martin having their best interest at heart.  Paul McCartney, I think, got a bad rap after Epstein's death.  He loved his band and the people in it and he just wanted them all to succeed in many ways, despite the death of their manager.  For starters, he wanted them to have good representation.  He took a beating because his other mates thought he was out for himself when he wanted his wife's family to represent them.  He wasn't.  He was vindicated when McCartney saved his band from the evils of businessman Allen Klein.  More on that later.
