Maryanne McMullen bio picture and The Next Music Generation logo

 

 

As 2020 draws to a close, we have caught up with Maryanne McMullen, CEO and founder of The Next Music Generation (TNMG), a platform that scouts for raw music talent and offers an outlet and assistance to develop their talent. An aspiring leader, she is also carving out time in her busy life to run for City Council!

 

What is one piece of advice you would give to aspiring entrepreneurs?

 

"Be open to learning, pivot with the times, never be afraid to fail and seek advice if you don’t understand something. Always remember the proverbial phrase “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade".
