On this episode of Making Elephants Fly, Terry sits down for the third time with Leigh Holt. This time the conversation focuses on the high cost of success and why saying no to poorly timed amazing opportunities is what opens the doors to perfectly timed life and career-changing opportunities. Terry and Leigh unpack what happens when opportunities are met with an abundance mindset and you really believe that the best is yet to come. With an impressive array of professional experience, Leigh Holt continually draws from her entertainment, sports, music, marketing and sponsorship backgrounds in her current role as an artist manager and founder & owner of maddjett. When working with Leigh, partners find a strong focus on strategy. Leigh is unafraid to ask questions to best understand the culture of the business and the project at hand. By pushing the envelope and building strong relationships, Leigh creates win-win scenarios for her clients and connections. An entrepreneur at heart, Leigh is never satisfied with a sub-par performance. She is most energized when developing an experience or “moment” that resonates in the consumer’s mind and drives revenue for her clients. After 10 years in the music industry helping others to achieve success, Leigh decided to take her fate into her own hands. In October of 2013, Leigh left her role as the VP of Strategic Partnerships with Warner Music Nashville to launch maddjett (named after her sons, Maddox and Jett.) Her past clients have included Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour, Hunter Hayes, Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend, Pepsi MidAmerica, PixMob, Harper Collins Christian Publishers, Sony Music Nashville, the Museum of the Bible and more. She leads the maddjett team that manages two time Grammy Award-winning artist Lauren Daigle, and handles marketing and consulting services for top entertainers. Apart from business, those who know Leigh recognize her undeniable love (in no particular order) for: her husband, her two sweet boys - Jett & Maddox and the Georgia Bulldogs. Join Leigh and Terry as they talk about what happens when you say no and make the things that matter most be the rudder that guides your decisions.
