“Co-running a successful business in the music industry for over a decade has definitely taught me a lot of tricks, and a lot of lessons. From full-on business development, to social media strategies and graphic design, it’s crazy how many spheres you need to master to run a small business. Let alone the problem solving… Thankfully, I absolutely thrive on learning new things, and I’m always up for a challenge – which has definitely helped on the journey!”
