So I work for Guitar Center. Surprise i know! It's a large retailer which means holiday time is go time, very busy, lots of sales blah blah blah right. Every year around this time i reflect back on what i do for a living. How do i personally pay my bills, how do i find meaning in what i do. It always comes back around to music: playing with my friends, recording at my studio, hanging with my lady and pets listening to music....whatever i am doing; my free time ALSO revolves around music. I have the pleasure of being able to write a weekly collection of thoughts in regards to what i do. We have as a collection of musicians centered around two mantras as of late: "We Help People Make Music" and "We Sell the Greatest Feeling on Earth". Now to the rest of the world this may sound like jargon, but to me this is what i have done for the last 7 years. I have got to hang out in a music store with musicians, talking to musicians about what we are all passionate about: MUSIC. I have been allowed the freedom to run the business the way i would want to run it. I get to hang out everyday and go to work doing something i love every day. I remember walking into a music store when i was young and getting excited about FINALLY being able to afford my first guitar. I still get the feeling when i buy a new pedal, or when i get a new cymbal. I go back to being a 12 year old "kid" who loves music. I love what i do, i am privileged to get to do what i do. I am very excited to be here and I am very excited to share my passion for music with the people around me: coworkers, customers and friends alike. Happy Holidays and enjoy the experience of music.
