" I really hope to get my name out there more "

Recently, XBIZ Video Magazine asked several industry players "What are you most looking forward to professionally in 2008?"

Here's what they had to say:

In 2008, I really hope to get my name out there more. Being under contract can sometimes have its backlash with how often your name is mentioned because of the limited time you are actually shooting. I have big plans for myself in 2008.

I am signing on with Adult Star Profits to get my website where I think it needs to be. Having a program and big affiliates behind your website is a huge deal nowadays in this industry. Next, I hired The Star Factory to handle all my public relations and publicity information. Alex is a hell of a guy and I can't wait to start working with him in the new year.

All in all, for the last two years I have had the handcuffs on with my career, not really able to do all the things that I have wanted to do and now I have that freedom. I have also signed on with Tony Lee and Dave over at The Lee Network to handle all my feature dancing. So if any club owners out there need a fresh face to highlight their club, I am ready to rock it out for you!

— Memphis Monroe

In 2008 I am looking forward to so much! We have been growing by leaps and bounds for the last two years and I really feel like 2008 is going to be huge for us. We are expanding our hold in the true amateur market with more zany series like "My College Porno," expanding distribution with even more reality studios and increasing brand awareness with our contract girls. We have some huge announcements coming. I'm just excited to see everyone I work with have their hard work pay off. As cheesy as it is, our little family is getting bigger and growing, which makes me smile.

California Exotic Novelties, already recognized as the industry leader in innovation, design, marketing support and service, is looking forward to a banner year in 2008. New designs, technology, signage and point-of-purchase support will provide our customers with a whole new level of sales potential. As we expand our horizons professionally, all things new, exciting and timely will dazzle our distributors, retailers and the consumers. We have installed a new electronic Warehouse Management System that will raise our already industry-leading delivery speed to a whole new level. Consumers, who have come to trust our brand, will certainly be pleased in 2008. I can hardly wait … prepare to be dazzled.

— Al Bloom, California Exotic Novelties

I am actually most excited about my second year helming Lisa Ann Talent Management. My agency was one year old in December and thanks to my talent working so hard and my staff being so awesome, I'm ready to kick it up a notch in 2008. I couldn't be happier about my decision to take this thing on. Professionally, I like giving the girls work on good projects with solid companies. It gives me great joy to watch my girls succeed. I'm always looking for new faces and I think 2008 will be even better.

— Lisa Ann, LATM
