Why Clay Hutson Is a Rare Gem in the Musical Realm
As a live entertainment firm owner, the nature of his work does not allow him to conduct his business like any ordinary business proprietor, and that’s why he usually reaches his work venue before everyone else. In a recent interview, Mr. Hutson said that doing so is not a necessity, but a way to ensure his work meets and surpasses the expectations of his clients.
His typical workday starts before seven, and starts by exploring the area where the show is set to take place, reviews his schedule, creates a storage plan, and develops a list of tasks that each of his crew members should take care to prevent any confusion when the actual work begins.
When he is hired to manage a show, Clay Hutson usually works with his crew in setting the stage a day before, and does so in such a way that it is easy for him and his staff to break it down, once the show is over. Additionally, instead of waiting until the entire concert is over to assign tasks on how to break down the venue, Clay usually organizes his team on how they will go about it while the event is still going on; hence ensuring everything goes on as planned from the time the show commences to the moment it comes to an end.
Apart from talking about his normal workday, during the interview Clay Hutson also touched on many other topics. For instance, he says that purchasing an iPhone has significantly benefitted his business as it allows him to manage his company, since he can share files on Dropbox and refer to his client list, all at the touch of a button, and from the comfort of his home.
Similar to any other successful person, Hutson life has not always been smooth sailing, and he has had ups and downs as well. For instance, he revealed that he was once sued by a company that had hired him as a subcontractor when a client became dissatisfied with its services and decided to hire him independently. Even though it wasn’t his fault and that the plaintiff dropped the case, he still underwent a loss of more than $145,000 which he used in his defense.
