“We build unique tools for creators who want to do it better,” he shares.
Today, Music Linx is a fully-functioning mobile music studio platform where music creators can not only make music, but also connect to and network with each other to share creations.
The team itself is made up of Mickie, four developers, a research analyst who focuses on customer discovery, and two Marketing interns. They’re currently focused on goals, new product development, and refining where they fit into the market – which is ironically – one of the aspects of entrepreneurship that Mickie learned early.
“I read Tim Ferriss’s The 4-Hour Work Week, and he has some good gems in there about networking,” he recalls. “I had all these ideas about the potential of something like this, but I needed to get out there and see where it fit; I knew that to do that, I needed to network with the right people who could show me the ropes – and I did.”
Mickie has found success and camaraderie in surrounding himself with the right people for where he is in the start-up journey. As much as he enjoyed working from coffee shops, he knew he wanted to spend more time and energy with entrepreneurs.
“I knew that I needed to surround myself with people who are living it every, single day; people who are building their companies,” he noted.
