When you fully commit to your passion, anything is possible.
And Rowen Geneke is the living example of how to do it.
As a multifaceted creative, Rowen has experimented with a number of art forms. While standup comedy and cooking are among his favorites, music ultimately became the foundation for his business ventures.
But in such a traditionally competitive industry, what’s his secret to standing out as an artist-turned-entrepreneur?
From Passion to Business
For Rowen, two major opportunities arose in the entertainment space:
RowenG Entertainment — a dual-value business that facilitates both music education and MC services for events.
“It started as a passion by assisting,” Geneke says about his first steps in business. “Then, I realized that I loved to teach.”
As he develops his services within the intensive 10X Hub incubation program, Rowen describes every stage as nothing less than rewarding.
“[My favorite part about my business is] to see how people progress from not knowing anything to honing their craft and becoming so skilled in what they do,” he explains. “I can see their self-confidence grow.”
