In this podcast episode, my Amherst College classmate, Howard Chung, talks about his life as a main street entrepreneur, a streaming and digital video producer-promoter – and how Amherst prepared him for his career. In the last 20 or so years, Howard has owned or co-owned restaurants, a construction company, and even a concert promotion outfit. These days, Howard runs a bike shop and a business built around famed maker, YouTube personality, and soon-to-be Netflix star, Jimmy DiResta.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- How a personal loss on 9/11 motivated him to leave a career in finance for main street – and how the events of that day still motivate him
- Advice he would give Amherst College students and alumni about going into business for themselves
- Why he never puts his job title on his business cards
