I have helped dreamers and hired dream helpers. I prefer being the dreamer and more in charge of my own destiny.
I asked a group of band parents how many had LP and VHS media at home. Someone asked me back if I was including 45’s and Beta. Oh my! Yes. Most of the adults in the room raised their hands. When I asked how many had a way to play them, about 3/4 of those hands went down. When I asked if they knew how, or knew how to get that media digitized (put on CD/DVD, etc), almost every hand went down.
For years, we’ve paid by credit card at department and grocery stores, at restaurants and gas stations. Now that we are using credit cards in fast food drive through lanes and making our church contributions online via credit card– is there anyone NOT accepting credit card payments?
Well yes, most music booster groups. But there are some good reasons to consider implementing credit card processing.
I did resign and was one of the very few who did so to start working independently in the same business, who did NOT get challenged on the contract — and my theory as to why…
Band Boosters are always looking for a way to generate income. This concept sets them up as a local service provider offering to digitize old media (vinyl LPs, VHS, Cassette, etc) to DVD, mp# and Cloud Storage format.
