When I Started Performing: 2004.
Performing Arts Background: Classical and electric guitar.
How did your performing arts background supercharge your entrepreneurship? There are a number of lessons learned from performing guitar and trying to make a living with music: #1 If I am going to succeed, I have to make something people like. It doesn't matter if I don't understand why they like it. Making music for a living was about making other people feel good, and that makes me feel good too, even if the music is not my favorite. #2 Most people don't start performing well. They have practice and experience. I learned that through music, despite playing sports for years #3 Coordinating 5 people to play the same song is really hard. Let alone a company of hundreds! #4 The world is very, very competitive.
Favorite Performer: Hammerfall.
