MUSIC - Category Challenge
Going for another category challenge post for my second post for the day. I'm at 'Music' now... and yes, I'm just doing this category challenge randomly as I please. There is a reason for this madness. Don't ponder on it but instead check out my other category challenge related posts:
On to the challenge...
Now back in the day, I used to work for a popular music retail store. I worked my way up, starting as a staff in their flag ship store. Eventually I became a customer service staff and an assistant product buyer for the store. I moved to another store as a supervisor and then moved to another store as a store manager. I also opened one new store for the company and went full circle as I came back as a store manager to the original flag ship store where I started my career. Those were good years as I was really into music. It wasn't good earning-wise but working in that store really fueled my passion for music.
My other endeavors in music involved in making music. Not making music as playing music and performing but more at the production and marketing side of things. I helped produce an album of a local hip hop group. I also wrote some press releases for another group. I also got involved in producing shows and concerts in clubs and schools. Further on, my online shop sold albums and merchandise from independent bands.
Given a chance, I'd like to be involved again, one-way or another, in the music industry, whether that be in promoting and bankrolling albums or concerts and events or even involved in retail, producing, marketing, and producing albums and merchandise.
