This Small Business Knows How to Let the Good Times Roll
Last month marked the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The storm displaced thousands of citizens and shuttered hundreds of small businesses that called New Orleans home. While many of these businesses closed permanently, others were able to thrive.
One New Orleans band did just that. Bobby J and Stuff Like That has been keeping the music alive for over 25 years, hustling and prospering in the city’s competitive music scene. Owner Bobby Jordan and manager Lisa Jordan are successful business owners as well as artists—a combination that, they say, is as rewarding as it is demanding.
“I quit every week for 25 years,” Lisa jokes. “But I keep coming back, because this is me.”
Bobby agrees: “For me, it’s a total passion.” That passion is plain to see in this short documentary video.
Here’s to loving what you do, and as they say in New Orleans, laissez les bon temps rouler—let the good times roll!
