We had the good fortune of connecting with Bill Harris and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Bill, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Everyone wanted to help me with the money. I found that was a mistake when I did not get paid.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I studied. I was a product of the education system. I played with Chicago Symphony. A percussionist. Performed for Oprah, presidents, many celebrities. I played piano for tips at bars and restaurants in San Diego week by week to barely pay rent. Your security is your ability to perform.
