Starting as a street musician in Philly and Boston, G has managed to string together a successful career through authenticity, relentless work ethic and a focus on business.

Dream Cymbals: Dream Cymbals are a different kind of cymbal company because they keep it simple. Their approach is simple: Make high-quality, handcrafted cymbals and gongs and sell them for a reasonable price. PLUS, you can bring your old cymbals (even if they’re cracked) and trade them in for a new Dream Cymbal. For every inch of cymbal you bring in, you get $1 off your cymbal. Have a broken 20″ crash? Trade it in for $20 off your next Dream Cymbal. The coolest part is they recycle the old, broke cymbals and use the material to make their crotales and crop circles. Check them out at DreamCymbals.com
