She’s a Chicago based actor, playwright, and producer who has been ‘locked’ in the Room Escape/Exit Games industry as a producer and designer since 2013 (with no intentions of escaping any time soon). Maren has a BFA in Acting and Theatre Arts from University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She is the former Executive Producer for Room Escape Adventures which produces ‘Trapped in a Room with a Zombie’ and ‘Trapped in a Room with a Zombie II: Still Hungry’. In this episode, we discuss: · A career path in the arts and acting · A surprise transition from acting to entrepreneurship · The team it takes to start a business · Going from a supply and demand business with two competitors to a differentiation business with 17 competitors · The wild world of escape rooms · Being able to provide employment to artists who may not always find artistic work · Team building exercises that escape rooms can provide · The importance of trust in a business relationship · Hiring for fit and not for skill · Making an exit strategy part of your long term business plans I hope you will find this episode as exciting and informative as I have. Maren was so generous to share her better business practices regarding learning the ropes of artistic entrepreneurship. Please let me know your thoughts!
