Transmit’s Top Tip For Tuesday – Damian’s First Business

Every Tuesday, one of the directors at Transmit Start-Ups gives you a quick and simple top tip for making your business a success. This week however, we are doing something a little different.

In the spotlight for the second instalment in our ‘My First Business’ series, Damian Baetens talks about what he learned from his first business which was managing a band. Damian’s original business model was as simple as ‘find a band, get a deal and get rich’. It didn’t work out as well as he planned.

He learnt for the next time however, signing a band up to a major record label. He learnt how to select the right artist and how to develop them. Persistence is key, especially in such a competitive field as music.
