The key to business success is to be valuable to others. I have found success by taking something that was once unreachable and daunting to the public, and handing it to them in a simple and understandable format. The purpose of CheerSounds is to help cheerleading coaches find or create music that enhances their team's presentation and performance. We achieved this by developing a highly automated SaaS system for music arrangement and distribution, and by building a private record label to create audio content to license. The acceptance of CheerSounds' method resulted in an industry shift toward licensed music from 2014-2016, earning a spotlight feature in Cheer Biz News in 2014, as well as being selected for Cheer Biz News' "35 under 35" in both 2015 and 2016. Additionally, I am a board member of the USASF National Advisory Board, serving terms from 2015-present. My education is from Northeastern University; I have a BS in Computer Science with a minor in Music Industry. I have a wonderful wife who helped me start the business in the early years, and three children.

Whether it’s problems finding information on your website or frustrations with a particular product or service, any issue has the potential to turn into a major conflict if not handled properly from the start.
Whether you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or a seasoned business owner, coming up with a winning business concept isn’t always easy.

Regardless of how many hours you work in a day, not all of that time is going to be completely productive. Sometimes it's because of procrastination, other times it's because you've been so bogged down in "busy work" that you haven't made progress on important tasks. Whatever the reason, it's important to find ways to optimize your to-do list to maximize your time for important strategy work as well as personal endeavors.
