Episode 135 – David Hanscom

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #135 with David Hanscom – Providing Customized Entertainment that Reflects Your Style & Taste.

David Hanscom is a traveling event, Emcee, DJ, and Wedding & Event industry thought leader. He has been trusted by the world’s top client base and humbly became one of the most in-demand event DJs across the country. David provides a unique style of entertainment to VIP Events, Corporate Events, and Private Events.

He also founded Y? Entertainment in 1989, and since established an extraordinary resume not only personally as an entertainer, but also as a respected entrepreneur and industry influencer.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • David joins us all the way from Ponte Vedra, Florida which is right between Jacksonville and the St. Augustine beachside area.
  • David built Y? Entertainment as an answer to his parent’s question which is – why do you want to be part of the entertainment? Because in his early years David did a lot of things in the entertainment world that never made a lot of money.
  • Y? Entertainment service wedding clients, corporate clients, private events, sweet 16, parties, and corporate events. On the side, David also hosts a podcast and a live show every Tuesday night to help beginners in the wedding and business industry.
  • How David turns his event hosting and DJing skills into a more sustainable career and not just something to do for fun.
  • David’s origin story started when he worked in a radio and television station specifically in the DJ Booth playing some records with less than eight people listening.
  • Having a chameleon mindset is David’s superpower because early on he realized that he is not in the music business, neither in the DJ business, he is in the people business.
  • Richard brought up a meaningful line from the movie, “The Greatest Showman” which relates to David’s entertainment business. When someone asked Barnum “How can you be excited doing all this fake stuff?” And his answer was “the smiles don’t look fake”.
  • Two of David’s fatal flaws in his business include being an introvert and practicing negative self-talk.
  • Lack of understanding or first-time buyer mentality in event hosting is David’s arch-nemesis in his business.
  • Living in the moment, having fun, and letting loose is David’s driving force in providing an entertainment service that makes people experience a perfect event.
