14 Jun #06 The Art of a Full Dance Floor | Jason Middleton of Premier | The Entertainment Company
Creating a Brand & Managing a Business Partnership
Jason Middleton, owner-operator of Premier | The Entertainment Company loves music and full dance floors. It’s in his blood after all, having followed in the footsteps of his dad, the Music Man. Honing his craft as a Dj and master of ceremonies, Jason’s company has grown into a respected entertainment company that now serves it’s Middle Tennessee clients with DJ’s, Photobooths & Green Screens, Lighting, Dance floors and even dance instructors – but most of all with an unparalleled committed to creating a Premier experience for his clients.
For today’s episode, we talked through his tested system reading a room and managing the energy of a party (again, full dance floors are his jam!), his process to fostering new talent and building a team, and how needing a website (in 2012, say what?!) turned a good friendship into a business partnership – all of which contributes to his business’ continued growth and success.
