Having been laid-off by 4 different companies in the past 10 years, I decided to start my own business. TyGre Entertainment Group was established in January of 2000. Formed with the mission of acquiring, producing, and distributing entertainment products in the areas of music, sound recordings, music & literary publishing, film and television. Upon establishing my own company I quickly realized the components involved with being “head man in charge.” Taking the entrepreneurial plunge, I no longer became a victim of economic circumstances, or poor management decisions. It was up to me to develop the marketing plans to attract customers, deliver the product or service, collect the compensation, as well as take care of all the administrative duties.
