Attendance at the Folk Music Ontario Conference

We posted a sign on a dropbox at the FMO conference:

"Hoofbeats radio and podcast is an all age, all interest, all access horse talk show, for closet enthusiast to full fledged pro! Broadcast on CFRU 93.3fm, with “Riding With The Stars” segments, that features musicians about any experience with horses — pony rides in childhood, touristy trail rides, trips to the track.  We LOVE these horse-stories!"

And look what happened.... It felt like Christmas.

My professional development was learning to approach celebrities outside of the horse world, collecting new content and relationships that will drive traffic via social media, and networking for both mentorship (Jan, Liz) and new listenership. I also learned a great deal at the AGM on Sunday morning when they discussed the financials of the music oriented not for profit organization and the current landscape around arts funding in the province...
