Future Star started as a small, yet ambitious blog with an aim to connect future music industry stars, who were high school age, to professional mentors/mentorship, and networks of established stars. Here, they talk about their journey, how they exit, and the lessons they learned along the way. You might be able to benefit from some of this wisdom, especially if you're in a similar position.

In a cut throat industry that is the music and entertainment industry, Brian Garrett has made huge strives to establish himself as a recognized name and brand within top executives and musicians. As a tech entrepreneur, Brian got his start by making money online through email marketing as a young teen and eventually took that skill-set and found his niche where he specializes in digital marketing for musicians. It wasn't all easy though as Brian had to literally hustle his way to get in the door of record label executives through unique and unheard of tactics. Today, he runs Future Star, a conglomerate of talent management, record label, digital marketing and development, and more.

He had like nine computers set up at his house sending emails all day. Once I saw that happen, I moved in a different direction and didn’t want to be caught up in any of that. That’s how I really got into the whole email marketing stuff to begin with and I just had a computer background all along. I just took that knowledge and experience and moved it towards the entertainment business in 2006 when I started my company, Future Star. (Source: www.localsuccess.org)
