Ever Heard This Line

“Do what you love and you will never work a day”?

Well, let me tell you.  This may work for some but it certainly doesn’t work for everyone.  However, I must tell you that I really do consider myself a very fortunate guy.  Not only do I work with people that I respect and love, but, I also work around my very favorite instruments.  I have been in love with pianos since I was a kid.  But it is WORK.

I don’t know when I would have been through a whole day without having to email a customer, call a customer, visit a customer or do some blogs, or maintenance on the website.

SmileI mean what else could a man ask for right?  I love to see pianos, they make me smile and I enjoy the customers, they also make me smile.    I am a lucky, lucky man.

When I go to work in the mornings at my little piano store on the central coast of California, I actually enjoy walking through the doors.  Of course, the store is not that busy and I’m not overcome with work.  Some days are more difficult than others.

I write blogs for several different people and do a lot of social media work for piano companies and piano stores, but, I enjoy simply reading about pianos and seeing what is going on in the piano industry.

I wish everyone could experience this type of love for their jobs.  The world would be a different place if everyone loved what they do as much as I do.

I have returned

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

As many of you know, PianoSD closed last year and I have been working at finding the right fit for me and my family in the piano industry.

Bob Auletta of The Piano Outlet (www.thepianooutletco.com)  requested that I come to a small town called Nipomo, Ca. and take a look at the area.  When I visited the area I was so impressed by the people and culture of the town that I knew immediately that this was IT.  We have worked very hard to get the store ready and open and are getting ready to celebrate the Grand Opening of The Piano Outlet in Nipomo, Ca.  Bob is quite excited to be here and so am I.

Bob has been an icon in the music industry for many years and I am quite excited to be an employee of his.  He has left me the opportunity to build this business in any way that fits the community and would promote music and music education in the Central Valley Coast of California.  I am sure it is going to be a success.

As PianoSD begins a change from a retail site to a referral site I am hoping that you will be patient and go to www.PianoSD.com from time to time and see the changes that are being made.

Thanks as always for visiting us and please feel free to visit The Piano Outlet at 485 N. Frontage Rd.  Nipomo, Ca.  93444 or call us at 805-929-8901 for any special requests that you may have.
