If you like parties, dancing and music, and are looking to earn extra money, then consider opening a DJ Business. A DJ is in high demand for; events, weddings, birthdays and just about any type of social gathering. Being a Disk Jockey can be done either part time to supplement your income or as a full time career.
The first thing about becoming a DJ is that it is not only about the music. You will have to learn how to entertain the audience and keep them interested. The most successful DJ’s will have a microphone and use it to get the crowd excited. Many of the events which you will be performing at will require some type of interaction with the audience including; being an announcer, introducing people or entertaining them. A good positive, dynamic and upbeat attitude will help tremendously.
If you feel you have what it takes to entertain a party event, then the next step is to buy the correct DJ Equipment. The basic mobile DJ Equipment you will need are: 2 CD Players, A Turntable, Power Amplifier, Speakers, Audio Mixer, Wireless Microphone and Cables. Additional DJ Back-up Supplies you should include are a flashlight, extra cords, carrying cases, duct tape and a small tool kit. Many companies sell complete DJ Packages and systems which contain everything needed. If you do not have the money for a complete package you can start small and build up or buy used DJ equipment from auction or classified ad sites.
Taking care of business is as easy as: 1.) Naming your business. 2.) Obtaining a local business license. 3.) Getting a Tax ID Number. 4.) Opening up a bank account and 5.) Getting Professional made flyers and business cards. Once you take care of city and/or county business requirements, it is always a good idea to get some type of General Liability Insurance.

Now all you will need to do is get enthusiastic, get motivated and get your groove on! The DJ business is a super way to meet many new people and develop future business contacts.
