With all his previous experience as a live sound engineer, show producer, and much more Clayton was inclined to start his own business.

He meticulously checks over every detail again and again to make sure everything runs smoothly. This means he shows up to the concert arena before 7 in the morning when he gets the day started and organized. Buying an iPhone was one of his best purchases he says. It allows his to get way more done and be more organized than before. He can stay in contact with his crew to make sure they stay informed about every aspect of their job.
There is new trends that excite the production manager including new lighting equipment. Not only is it much brighter, but it moves around on wheels making things much easier. Looking back on his life there are lessons he has learned. One of them being to prioritize family first above anything else. The other factor is to be completely honest with himself and others even if it’s uncomfortable. Clayton had worked with a subcontractor in the past and it did not go well. It was a hard and costly experience that made Mr. Hutson at how he runs things. Now he takes more measures to protect his company and their reputation from unnecessary hardship. On the same note Clayton recommends that people read “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… and It’s All Small Stuff.” It helped the sound engineer focus on what was important to him and forget the rest.
