Hey Everyone! It’s mid-week…how’s everyone doing? If it’s good, then soak it in and I hope the next couple of days are EVEN BETTER! And if it’s not been such a great week for you, then you can have some peace of mind knowing that you are rounding the bend to the end of it. And I sincerely hope next week is much better! 🙂 So…I just finished editing the latest podcast episode, which I am really excited about! This episode is the with the owner of one of the largest Mobile DJ outfits here in San Antonio. For over 30 years, Ron Peene has sat at the helm of Cutting Edge Entertainment. 3 decades, man. That’s 30 years of following trends and keeping a light finger on the pulse of this industry to insure yearly growth. 30 years of new technical innovations, new marketing ideas and new ways to connect with a constantly changing clientele. 30 years of producing well-trained, high-quality DJ’s. 30 years of very happy brides & grooms. This is an impressive man, and I was honored that he gave me some of his time.
Normally I’d put together a “what to expect in this episode” for you here…but frankly, it feels reductive to write a quick summary of this podcast episode – Ron has an expansive library of stories, anecdotes and words of wisdom to pull from his years of experience. And he generously shared his story of the rise and the maintaining of Cutting Edge Entertainment through his tenure. And he gave wonderful insight and advice throughout the podcast. But my absolute favorite thing about this interview was NOT a story or a word of wisdom…but it was something I just felt from talking to him. And it’s that he still seems so excited and enamored with the subject of his business. After 30 years of climbing uphill, as all of us small business people do, he still communicates so very passionately about how to be the best DJ…about his business strategies…and about where his company is going next.
His communication style is a blend of military precision and creative passion. He’s the first DJ I’ve interviewed and it’s SUCH a difference from interviewing other artists who are NOT used to being in the spotlight and communicating for a living. He glided through the questions with his silky-smooth voice offering answers that were so spot-on, they almost felt rehearsed…he’s gooood! So, you guys enjoy this one…it’s a treat. I hope you learn a lot and are inspired even more.
