Madison Wentz is from Morden, Manitoba and has started “Mad Tunes Entertainment”, a mobile entertainment company that offers MC, DJ, Karaoke, light shows and movie nights in his community.
The ELEVATE program guided Madison through business planning, goal setting and financial projections in order to be able to start his business successfully. He found that working with the Community Futures staff and the ELEVATE program helped his experience go smoothly. “They would give me any guidance they could.”
Madison has always liked mixing and playing music for family functions, as well as taking on requests and stepping up to the microphone. This new business was a natural fit for him!
Madison measures success in relation to goals: “success is setting a goal, planning the steps to achieve it, and effectively implementing the plan.
Once I think I’ve achieved a goal, I’ve succeeded.” Madison also says, “I would tell others that you need to set your mind on something that you are passionate about and keep working at it until you achieve what you are reaching for.”
