We all know that serving people is at the core of running a successful DJ business. It’s obvious but also something that we should be careful not to take for granted. To facilitate your people-focus, we are offering an interesting variety of articles this time around.
We are also looking at “people power” from the DJ’s perspective. Are you a solo DJ thinking about going multi-op? A solo part-timer looking at the leap into full time? There’s something for you inside, wherever you are on your career path.
As far a specific people re concerned, in this issue, we proudly unveil a new column, in partnership with Peavey, that will put the spotlight on Peavey DJ product users. First up, DJ/producer Keith Shocklee, of Public Enemy fame. (Also note that Keith will also be at the DJ Takeover at MBLV20, sponsored by Peavey.)
Another new feature of note is “Photo Booths in Focus,” dealing with this add-on technology that many DJs have leveraged for greater profits. We hope this issue gives you some fresh perspectives on serving the people in your world, whether they’re clients, employees or others. And don’t forget to take care of yourself too!
