The Small Business Safari

105: Striking the Right Chords in Business | Marcus Myers Explains How Helping People Helps You Get Ahead

Marcus Myers is a manufacturer's rep for Audio Visual Equipment, but even by his own explanation, this field is obsolete. Amazon is coming! We talk about how to differentiate yourself in the B2B marketplace and become the value added GLUE that helps people play beautiful MUSIC. From Kenny Chesney to Sanford Stadium to a boardroom near you, Marcus and his team have probably helped get the right equipment to help you enjoy your experience. His interest in music came from his start as a violinist who eventually toured for years with a Christian Rock Group. AND THEN HE TOOK HIS SHOT.  He gives you the nitty gritty and details around his acquisition of his current company and how he was able to grow it to the incredible business it has become today. Did you know our amazing voices can go beyond just the microphone? Yes, we have video! Subscribe to our YouTube channel here!
