MB 152 cover-smSome of us create remixes; some of us play them; all of us appreciate how they can breathe new life into an old tune, or make a new one work even better on our dance floor. The idea of remixing also provides a powerful metaphor for how we can make changes that can take our businesses—and our lives—to exciting new  levels. In this issue we offer a bunch of ideas for “remixing your biz”—for transforming what you do, without starting over from scratch:

Mike Ficher looks at the example left by the  great Frank Sinatra of how to keep your career going by recreating yourself multiple times; Stephanie Padovani offers some thoughts on truly standing out in the wedding entertainment field; Arnoldo Offermann blows up some myths about youth event marketing; Stu Chisholm advises caution when being  tempted to throw a lot of money at a seeming “upgrade” to your biz; and Jason Weldon outlines a plan and offers encouragement for those serious about remixing their situations.

Also onboard this time around: ideas for using photos in the gameshow/trivia realm, from Rob Johnson; great advice on working with photographers from Mike Ryan; the need for positive adjustments from motivational DJ Coach, Paul Kida; and some practical thoughts on planning next year’s budget from John Stiernberg.

David Walley shares a unique approach to improving your sound involving making your actual tracks sound better; and Jay Maxwell offers sage advice on the how to start off the wedding reception with the right vibe.

Along with a full load of product reviews and information, we talk to Mike Spencer about his growing retail company, Innovative LED Stage & DJ Lighting; and also learn how to kill the beast of feedback with audio guru Rich McCoy. And don’t miss the conclusion to our This Old Lighting Rig “reality show, as we outfit a lucky DJ with a whole new lighting system.
