The year’s off to a good start for us on Planner’s Pod! This week we are joined by our good friend James Tosslle the sole proprietor of two complimentary companies that serve important key roles in the events industry.
The first one is Entertec, a professional audio company that provides speakers, mixing desks, P. A. systems and everything associated to making people nice and loud in venues and events. Second is a trucking company called J.T. Event Truck which makes sure that the equipment gets there safely and provide the logistics and transport for the events industry.
James is quite an entrepreneur and he’s done some pretty staggering stuff over the years. In this episode, he shares us his experiences on how he got into the sound engineering industry at a very early age and how he paved the way for himself to where he is now.
