Contribution to the community
IDEALS ENTREPRENEURS AWARDS 2022
Adolf Sax was recognized for your courage in choosing culture, music, as a means to undertake in your personal and professional life. For being a graduate and beneficiary of the cultural center of El Carmen de Viboral and being grateful to the institution where he had his first contact with an instrument. This talented local saxophonist is appreciated for his contribution to the community by being both a proud farmer and town musician. The passion that radiates in each musical performance and for contributing and belonging to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in El Carmen de Viboral and the department of Antioquia is valued. Adolfo is currently studying fourth semester of music with an emphasis on saxophone at the University of Antioquia.
What is the contribution to the entrepreneurship community?
Within my performance as a musician in the region, I have found different ways of carrying out activities that comprehensively relate my process as an artist and as a person. This has led me to not only focus my efforts on simply singing or playing an instrument, but also through this, share my experiences and knowledge with many people in my community and my municipality, thus finding in musical teaching a valuable power to deliver messages and to transform realities. In addition, thanks to the immense power that music has to transmit emotions, I have been able to be present in different ways and in different media, giving people food for the soul and accompanying many emotional moments of their lives, which gives me immense satisfaction.
What stands out about your business model and business purpose?
My project recently arose from the personal concern to apply the different knowledge that I have acquired during my training process, combining it with personal taste in musical styles, and also from the need to find a profitable job that allows me to alternate with my university studies, all This is seeking to satisfy a commercial need for musical services that has very little supply in eastern Antioquia and, in turn, a high demand. That is why I found in the dissemination of content through social networks a way to promote my work and, in turn, constantly contribute to fulfilling my purpose in life.
What human ideals do you always defend in your business environment?
Despite my short experience in business and work, I have always defended the value of dignity in everything I do and also that everything must be done with meaning. I have always believed that when you have reasons and purposes to do things, the process can be guided more easily and, in turn, you can enjoy it more.
