How did your performing arts background supercharge your entrepreneurship? I’ve used nearly all of the concepts I learned in music to supercharge my entrepreneurial ventures. In music I learned to problem solve, to understand patterns, to be discipline and consistent in refining a skill set, the art of improvisation and adapting to various situations, understanding my audience, understanding my value as a brand and product that a customer would pay for or hire, fight through the negativity centered around peers and family claiming that I should get a real job, learned to work with a trusted and skilled team or band members… to name a few.
Favorite Performer: Herbie Hancock
