Tell us all about your business...

Artist Management

What's your background and motivation to grow as a solopreneur?

I started out managing some friends and local DJs, we started putting on our shows.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Multiple #1 Radio and Billboard Records.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a solopreneur?

In the entertainment business/music business, there is no real formula. You aren't selling a product like a bottle of water, (which is something everyone needs) so it's a bit more challenging.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Consistency, patience, and have a really good product that you believe in.

What are some of the things you put in place to maintain a healthy work/life balance and to keep it all together?

This is still something I'm working on lol.

Who are some of your favorite entrepreneurs and why?

I admire and look up to what Moe Shalizi & Stefan Dabruck have done. Their artists and the relationship they have with them.
