Ska/Punk Nonsense

My advice for anyone wishing to be an entrepreneur is to simply jump right in and give all you have. You need to think that if you don't do what you set out to do, no one else will. A few years ago, a local music festival that I would go to was experiencing troubles and was probably going to stop putting on shows. Instead of idly standing by and watching something I loved disappear, I decided to salvage what I could. Before I was involved, the festival was going to shut down due to no profits, and no venue. I was able to secure a venue in a short time and coordinate a team of peers to help in advertising to bring it back to a profitable festival.
I know this festival isn't nearly as artistic or beneficial to society as many of the examples others have posted and what we've discussed in class, but through my experience with this festival and the rest of the Wisconsin music scene, I've influenced and inspired others to make music with their friends and perform.
If you're not going to do it, who will?

  1. Jacob this post could be a very educational post, I hope that you can go further into detail sometime regarding your experience in putting together this festival. As we are all working on our projects it would be really great to hear the challenges you had to go through in the process.
