You may have never heard of Clayton Hutson, but you’ve almost certainly heard of the musical acts he supports. As a project manager and highly experienced sound engineer, Hutson has worked with performers ranging from 90s rock band Garbage to contemporary pop star Pink to country/rock fusion singer Kid Rock. However, his background began in business. He holds a bachelor’s degree in theater design and a master’s in business administration; two degrees that blend perfectly to describe Hutson’s current career as a sound engineer. He eventually became so successful that he was able to start his own business. When he’s not spending time with his family, he’s travelling the world with the famous artists to help them create the perfect sound.
Recently, Hutson sat down with Inspiry.com for an interview that discussed his success in business and what has led him to the fulfilling career he has now. Hutson admitted that it took a lot of hard work and experience to begin his own business; it wasn’t until he had several years of production management and sound engineering jobs under his belt that he felt capable enough to become an entrepreneur. When the company he worked for began to struggle, he took matters into his own hands and created his dream.
Hutson’s profits come from both sound engineering and the management side of the music business, including production design, logistics, and stage management. He knew that starting your own business is a risk that could potentially cause him to lost profits, but thankfully he didn’t need to worry about that. He found several great clients off the bat which launched him into a successful career in sound engineering and entrepreneurship.
In the future, he looks forward to keeping up with the ever-evolving technology by continuing to update his phone, as it is an essential part of his process. Even without the use of technology though, Hutson is firmly invested in his client’s success and often offers tips and tricks to better their performances.
Despite his success, Hutson is the first one to admit that a great career doesn’t come without setbacks. He’s faced some legal trouble, tough decisions, and time apart from his family, but he knows that despite his struggles, he has come out stronger. He has recovered from every setback and finds the recovery process to be one of the most satisfying parts of the job. His passion for business outweighs any troubles that he might run into on the job, and at the end of the day, his love for what he does drives him.
