Like Attracts Like Part 2

April 24, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Like Attracts Like, Customer Service, Business, Mitch Taylor, Taylored Sales, #LiveAt755Like Attracts Like Part 2  This week we finish up last week’s article of Like Attracts Like.  This axiom also goes on the flip side of things. The flip side is...how do you treat other people?  If you ask for a discount on something, but yet you already know the discount time is passed, who are you attracting?  I read a post recently from a DJ who was very negative towards the property he stayed at when attending a DJ conference (and it wasn’t the host property).  He complained about the quality of the property but yet I’m sure as I...

Failure Isn’t Failure Part 2

April 10, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Failure, Fail, Mitch Taylor, LiveAt755, WWE, WWF, XFL, ESPN, lessons in business, business lesson, ventureThis week we continue with the examination of the concept of failure isn’t failure, by examining the rise and fall of the XFL, the WWF & NBC’s upstart football league of 2001.  Let’s examine the how and why of the XFL’s failure. There were many missteps along the way. WWF definitely knew entertainment, and the XFL drew eyeballs and big ratings for its first game.  The 2nd game saw a failure of catastrophic proportions for the league when, of all things, an employee forgot to put gas in the backup generator a...

Whats Your Legacy

December 28, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
What’s your legacy? “My heart is filled with sorrow today but also great love and gratitude. We lost my dad Sunday evening. It was very unexpected, quick and a great shock to all of us! Kleo was an amazing man, filled with faith, integrity and a smile for everyone he met! If he met you once he remembered you forever and knew your story & probably your whole family's story. My mother was the love of his life and even after 57 years of marriage never let a day go by without a wake-up & good night kiss and an "I love you"! 
His children meant everything to him and he made great sacrifices throughout his life to make ... [read more]

Competitors or Friends Part 2

December 21, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Competitors or Friends Part 2 I remember first arriving at Mark Ferrell's DiscJockey America forums and seeing posts from the Podcast Personalities of DJA radio and I had a bit of the "starstruck" feeling.  Hey...there's Bill Hermann....whoa that's Randy Bartlett posting.  Man did you see what Bill James McElree posted?  Wow...Jim Cerone is here too!  What can I bring to the table to contribute?  I don't think there's anything I can offer.... Fast forward to just about two months ago.  A fellow DJ who is a bit older than me reached out to me after speaking with my good friend Jeremy Brech.  This gentlemen who has years... [read more]

Competitors or Friends Part 1

December 14, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Competitors or Friends - What Do You Want? The year was 2002.  My wife and I had just had our first born, a son named Hunter.  At that point I took stock of my life and made the (hard at the time) decision to move our family from where we had built a life in Metro Detroit to drop roots in either the Upper Peninsula of Michigan or my home state of Maine.  It took a LOT of discussion with her and I together to make the decision and was a hard choice but IMO in the end it was the RIGHT choice for us.  I LOVE Maine...but more as a place to say where I'm from and visit.  So the U.P. of Michigan it was.   After that decision...

Blessings

November 23, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Blessings Thanksgiving is here, and it's a great time to count your blessings.  What are your blessings?  What have you been given that you are truly thankful for?  For many of us we thank whichever entity we believe in for our family, our friends, our kids, our health, our freedoms (thank a solider please!), what we physically have in our lives.  Have you stopped to think about what else you should be thankful for?   To me we should be thankful for our given ability, our talents and the opportunities that present themselves to us each and every day. Think about it.  Prosperity in life, business, the world is all around us.  You ca... [read more]

Are wedding awards an expensive waste of time and money?

November 10, 2017 by Terry Lewis
The short answer is entirely not, the more extended answer reveals so much more. As a six times award winning wedding DJ and now judge for The Wedding Awards, you'd expect me to be pro-awards. Let me explain why I recommend putting the expense of entering near the top of your marketing budget; and why you should invest valuable time shaping your company to win. 1. There can only be one winner granted, but that could be you! So what does winning mean? Well, to the cynics I've debated with over the years, it means nothing. They've told me it's just a hollow badge on your website. Some cynics have even tried to persuade me that bride... [read more]

The Most Important Gear You Own

November 9, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
The Most Important Piece of Gear You Own What’s the most important piece of gear you own?  The speaker manufacturers say you can’t have a party without sound so it’s GOTTA be the thump in the room.  Lighting companies will argue that nothing can transform a room like their products so you NEED to pay for what they offer and create to ultimately sell your client.  Microphone manufacturers will say that nothing compares to their product when it comes to getting people’s attention and moving people in a room.  Each entity has their points.  I would argue that the MOST important piece of gear you own is a mir...
