Made In Mississippi

As an entrepreneur myself, I’ve learned so much from podcast. It’s an amazing platform to grow and educate yourself. Yet, all of the podcast I listen to are about entrepreneurs and business leaders in NY, LA, and Silicon Valley. There’s not a podcast to highlight those winning in Mississippi. I feel strongly this is one of the reasons many entrepreneurs are leaving our state - they feel it’s easier to succeed in bigger cities. This is the reason I almost left a few years ago. But It’s not true. These are the stories of Mississippians who have made something. I hope you are challenged and encouraged by their stories of entrepreneurs winning in our state.

Husband and wife team Justin and Amie Nunez stand behind the curtain of Groove House, a business that provides private music education to all ages in Hattiesburg, MS and the surrounding areas. Groove House was born out of the idea that musical education absolutely needs to be rooted in strong theory and technique, regardless of your instrument; but it needs to be equally balanced with freedom to play any style.  Justin states, “The driving force behind Groove House is the goal of creating musicians.  Being a musician requires being creative, flexible, and skilled.  With Groove House, we have created an environment where anyone can have fun learning to play music that they love.”
