Who is Steve Clayton?
Time is something we all wish we had more of. Whether it is more time to complete a deadline, or more time to spend with loved ones, it’s a truly elusive commodity. Over the past few years, Steve Clayton has conquered the time predicament many of us have. Steve Clayton went from DJing weddings in college, to becoming an industry-leading CEO of a major event production and talent booking company, Soundskilz. Steve now possesses the privilege of ample time and he wants to share his experience to help guide others down the path to success.
Steve Clayton began his career in entertainment as a DJ during his time in college at the University of California, Riverside. He loved bringing people together to have a good time and this became his passion. He took his love for DJing and created a small company that performed at weddings and corporate events. The more his small company grew, the more his passion for music and entertainment flourished and he knew this was the path he was supposed to be on. Little did he know that this path was about to take a detour. Steve learned he’d soon become a father, so he made the decision to put music and entertainment on hold and build a foundation for his family. He took a job teaching 7th grade and for the next few years he juggled teaching, fatherhood, pursuing a Master’s Degree, and building his company, Soundskilz. Steve was faced with inner turmoil, he knew if he stayed at the job that was comfortable and secure for his family, his dream of owning his own event production company would slip away from him and he might never get the chance to create a name for himself. Steve knew the perfect opportunity wasn’t just going to come to him, so he said goodbye to his steady paycheck and full benefits to fight for his dream.
