It's been said that a true entrepreneur can start and run any business regardless of whether they have specific expertise in the industry.

Vision, enthusiasm, true grit, and a high tolerance for ambiguity are the required ingredients these unique individuals employ to build a successful business.

...and for the record, these qualities can be found just as much in women as men.

Hi I'm your host Bob Williams and I'm very happy to welcome Jenny Townsend, Chief Executive Orchestrator at The Music Compound

In this episode, you'll learn ...

  • One thing most people don't know about Jenny.
  • Why she chose to start a music business even though she's not a musician and does really follow the latest trends.
  • Why her music school is actually more like a social club.
  • The creative way The Music Compound combines the love of music with acquiring life and leadership skills.
  • Why you might want to join the Music Compound.
  • ... and much ... much ... more!

Thank you for stopping by today as it is my hope you will listen ... learn ... and ... connect!
