    Slow & Analog Entrepreneurship

    Jonny Sklute is the 39-year old owner and proprietor of the world renowned and acclaimed Good Records NYC retail shop and a for-hire forensic musicologist to the greater music industry. He is in his 13th year of business and started completely from scratch. Jonny is going to talk about the strength of a slow-growth, lifestyle small business model and the pitfalls of fast growth; how technology can help you grow and how it can also bankrupt you; and how the power of analog, old-style merchandise and customer service is not over but is actually in more demand than ever.
