Providing a skill service for others is a dream come true. I had dreams of owning a specialty speakers bureau. In the speaking industry I've created the kind of service, community culture, and atmosphere patrons truly enjoy.
I've worked as an agent and in various roles at four
national bookstores. As a manager at my last bookstore & cultural center
job, one of my responsibilities was to fill in as needed in various front-of-room
and back-of-room capacities when the bookstore was busy or understaffed. This
allowed me to experience every role in the business, from booking to
hospitality to driver. In addition, I was responsible for hiring, firing,
scheduling, managing variable costs, setting revenue targets, creating
promotions, and performing light facilities maintenance. I also had to respond
calmly and quickly to customer questions and complaints, which improved my
people skills. ~SaRita

My passion for all of this comes from actually being a tech, building some of the products that would change the face of music, and also from being an engineer in the studio, observing the hit-making process. Only in retrospect have I realized that I had a front row seat to the evolution and invention of new instruments that would inspire great creativity in great musicians. Yes, I (and many others) came along at a wonderful time and helped contribute to the business we’re still in to this day.
