There Are No Side Projects: The Benefits of Taking Yourself Seriously

When Michael Winslow first decided to place 2 Windows Media Player controls onto a Visual Basic form in the early 2000s, he had no idea that it would lead to a fifteen year adventure as a DJ in Philly!

The application he wrote was originally called DJ Boo Boo. A name that would follow Michael to this day. And while the software never made Michael a millionaire, the lessons he learned played a valuable part in his professional growth. These are lessons that Michael would only learn because he took this DJ project seriously.

Michael understood that "There Are No Side Projects".
