And what will you find there?
Goldstar is in the events business. Turning you on, finding something for you to do. Most tickets are discounted, but not all.
At first Goldstar had a bad rep, devaluing concert tickets. But the truth is in this cluttered, cacophonous world it’s hard to get the word out, Goldstar supplements the ticket sales of the primary promoter.
Jim came from a military background.
He went to Harvard and then taught English in Japan before returning to the States and taking a gig at Noah’s Bagels. But he lost interest when the company was sold and the establishments were no longer kosher. No, Jim is not Jewish, with a name like “McCarthy”? But it turned out that Noah’s stood for something deeper and the new owners only stood for profits, ultimately alienating the customers, listen to the podcast, you’ll see.
So for those of you wannabe entrepreneurs, there are a lot of lessons here.
And for those wanting insight into ticketing, there are too.
But most of all Jim McCarthy is smart, he’d win in any world, not only via his brain, but his hard work and dedication.
