We had the good fortune of connecting with Lance Sanders and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lance, is there something you can share with us that those outside of the industry might not be aware of?
The level of commitment it takes to run a well oiled event. Logistics start normally 6 months before the event, We have to ensure that thousands of people can coexist, while making memories and being safe. It takes a lot of planning.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What sets us apart is our attention to detail. We want ever patron to feel like the event its just for them. This actually plays into how I got to where I was professionally. Starting with house parties at 15 years old, even at a young age I wanted everyone to feel welcomed. This one ideal is the pillar of my success honestly. It doesn’t matter if its 15,000 people or 15 people we are going to make sure you have a good time. This also taught me a valuable lesson, and would be what I want the world to know, The Money will come. Understanding in a business that for survival folks must enjoy themselves and come back, with all the variables in the world, some events may not make as much money as others. For longevity this is ok as long as you put the patron first

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Man I am a home body. Its kinda sad to be honest, Id much rather have people at my house. Having a fellowship in the comfort of my home is the ideal thing, The world is wild and in the midst of a pandemic, Id rather fire up the grill, get some bird some brews and have a good old fashion cookout.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Loving Wife and family above all. My wife centered my attention from this being a hobby to a business. She supports everything I do. Also the Full Circle USA Fam, from all over.
