Hey Folks, I’m *SO* happy and thankful to share this episode with you all. Chris Koval is a good friend and I am super-thankful for that. But before we got the chance to connect and get to know each other, he was someone that I looked up to and leaned on in the industry. His name was the name I’d drop when asked who I knew in the industry (even though he absolutely didn’t know MY name at that time!)
Very often when you meet people you admire, the real person doesn’t live up to the reputation. I am very thankful that this was not the case with Chris. His dedication to his son and his girlfriend are constant. And his love and passion for the industry can be seen in his work ethic and the MANY hours he volunteers for several different organizations dedicated to helping make event companies better and more educated. Naturally, his clients love him, and he’s well respected within the the industry. I often hear his name come up in conversation with new, young business owners to whom he’s shown the same level of kindness and compassion as he did to me.
I STILL, even now, drop his name although in a different context. When anyone asks what DJ’s I recommend, his is the first name out of my mouth every time. (To be fair, he’s booked solid ALL THE DAMN TIME!! So, you gotta reach out to him early!) But, I try to do my part to push business his way because I know he will love on the clients and do a phenomenal job for them.
