History has a way of repeating itself and if something was done right and it works then you should keep doing it, or as I like to say “if it is not broken don’t fix it”. If that is the case, then if it is broken and history has shown how do do it right, then only a fool will keep doing the same thing the same way and expect a different result.
Thanks to Morris Lyda’s amazing ability to convince me into doing something that I was meant to do, I started selling professional used gear for Disney in August 1997. I had not idea what I was doing, but Morris was convinced that I was the only salesman that could accomplish what he needed. I sold everything that he needed for me to sell to accomplish what he needed accomplished.
Then once again, in March of 1998 Michael McDonald, convinced David Bell and Mark Terry that I could do for JBL what I did for Disney which was to sell their warehouse of discontinued inventory. I did that too. As a matter of fact, everything that I did, I did despite myself. I believe that because I loved what I was doing, the universe took me along for a thrilling ride that is still going strong. I was the first one to use the Internet to market used gear and was the first online broker. All of the rest, came along after SoundBroker.com
There is not a day that goes by that I am not humbled by the success that I have experienced, I feel blessed and lucky. I believe that the key to my success is to be honest, likeable, and trustworthy. To give service, and to make sure that the buyer, the seller, and myself at the end of the transaction are winners.
I have seen our industry evolve from an analog one to a digital one and I have seen the huge profits that once were possible in leasing and renting dwindle to making it more difficult to earn a living. It is with all of the above thoughts in mind that I have decide to introduce a new membership service that will change the world into a better and more profitable place.
