Q&A With Frank DiGaudio, CEO of Vindietour Entertainment

Tell us a bit about Vindiektour Entertainment.

VindieKtour Ent was statred as Audiokult Radio in June of 2010. I started an Internet Radio Station which grew to over 1Mil views on the website and averaged over 700 listeners weekly. In fact the Indie Bible which is the top 1000 companies in the world that support independent artists placed us in there book after 3 months of being live. Right now I am co hosting and and producing a College Football talk show called “College Football Playbook”.

What gave you the idea for your business and how did it start?

As a school project I build a busniess plan as part of a final project and I wanted to be in the entertainment industry specifically the music business. My girlfriend at the time took my plan and LLC’d it as a gift for Christmas. So my school project to which I got an A in case anyone is wondering became a business.

What’s your favorite thing about your job?

Time. I do whatever I feel it should do. No same old rutine, no waking up every morning early to shiffle off to work, no punching in, no asking for days off. The best thing however is meeting musicians and hanging out at shows working on building the next phase of what I want to do next.

What are your keys to making yourself productive?

Loving what it is that you do. If you do something you like you will do it well but If you do something you love you will do it with flawless precision.

Tell us one long-term goal in your career.

I would like to launch a Music Festival “VindieKtour” where i got the name from for Vindiektour Ent. and if you notice that it spells indie tour!

“V INDIE K TOUR” and it has that rock, metal grit sound to it. I had to make that my company so I switched Audiokult Radio to Vindiektour Ent

What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned through the course of your career?

The indsutry is difficult and you can hustle and work your butt off and your reward maybe what you produce more so than money.

What advice would you give to others aspiring to succeed in your field?

Network, collaborate, and never stop moving forward even if you feel your overwhelmed. Remember a good leader knows his and his staffs strengths and weaknesses and building your team requires you to get people around you that compliment each others strengths or weaknesses. Assign tasks which coinside with each members strengths and try not to give anyone a tasks that is thier weak spot.

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?

I play video games, movies, and yes call me a nerd but I play Dungeons & Dragons. LOL

Name a few influential books you’ve read and/or websites you keep up with that you’d recommend to readers.

In all honesty I suggest reading anything that involves computer coding, business practices, the art of war not to be a general but to understand strategic maneuvers which can be applied to any business model. Websites to keep eyes on Facebook & Twitteryou will see everything that trends cross your news feed also they stay on top of technology and functionality.
