B Mo the DJ Gives Our Classes a S/O

Boston Voyager was kind enough to profile one of our most recent graduates: B Mo the DJ.

From his adopted dad playing with Bob Marley to NBC Sports Boston, from AMP 103.3 to FUN 107, Brian was a fantastic radio personality and music enthusiast… and then he heard about us.

In February I didn’t know the first thing about how to DJ. Now, after taking classes at MMMMAVEN in Cambridge, I’ve been doing my DJ thang from Boston to the South Shore and back.

Find his full backstory and much more at Boston Voyager.

It’s all about knowing your audience. Knowing what makes them tick. It’s a relationship. We all want to have a great relationship right? What I do when I DJ is I don’t just want you to come dance. I want to connect with you and feel like we just had a great time together. It’s about setting a vibe and energy with creative mixing and the music you use and when!

Be like Brian! August classes are starting soon. Mon & Wed courses for DJing and Production start on August 6th. Sat & Sun courses start on August 4th. Email me polina@mmmmaven.com

DJing Can Help You Succeed as an Entrepreneur (Here’s How)

This just in from the MIT Sloan School of Management:

“It allows you to take those risks, whether it’s creatively, whether entrepreneurially, whether financially, that you wouldn’t normally take, because I have a belief that overall everything is going to work out,” Batyske said.

“The best opportunities for me have come from stuff that completely went the wrong way at the beginning or something that I missed out on.”

Learn more of Mick’s secrets over at the MIT Sloan Newsroom.

According to mick.co: Known for his social media influence, MICK is now collaborating with Absolut as a brand ambassador. His fashion clients include: Adidas, Audemars Piguet, Bally, Bergdorf Goodman, Coach, Esquire Magazine, GQ, IWC, Jeremy Scott, Kanye West, Master & Dynamic, Public School, Ralph Lauren and W Magazine.
