Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Hahn.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started my first entertainment agency in 1991 to be a part of the San Diego Underground Music Scene. I supplied models, Go-Go Dancers and Promotions Girls to the EDM DJ Scene in San Diego.
We then expanded into special events industry – focusing on everything bachelor party. We supplied all the entertainers for San Diego Bachelor parties. Happily, I was able to employ all my friends as dancers, bouncers, managers, graphic designers, web designers, promotion girls, radio personalities, TV personalities, models & more. My company, Bad Girl Productions has taken me far along onto the road of success. Now launching into San Diego Bachelor Party.
I grew up outside of Hollywood near Malibu and Calabasas. I always loved the entertainment and music industry. I used to throw parties with local bands who played on Sunset Strip. I provided kegs of beers, beer bongs, girls and wet T-Shirt contests. The winning combo back then was good music, good beer and beautiful girls. I continue that spirit of epic fun to this day. It’s the formula for my success.
Currently, I have expanded into multiple cities with Bad Girl Productions: San Diego, CA, Palm Springs, CA, Los Angeles, CA, San Francisco, CA, Ojai, CA, Phoenix, AZ, Scottsdale, AZ and coming soon Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL and Nashville, TN aka NashVegas.
What I am mostly excited about is that I can provided an opportunity so many folks. My crew consists of dancers, entertainers, models, limo drivers, bouncers, IT people, web designers, Yacht Captains, VIP hosts, photographers and more. As the companies grow so do the opportunities to employ people and be of great value to my customers and clients. I love my team!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not always been a smooth road. When I first bought out Bad Girls, I really ended up buying just a pager, a hand-written list of phone numbers for both girls and clients and the concept. That’s when I realized if I want this to be a true success I am going to have to hustle. Hustle is what I did. I leveraged myself and my company brand with the underground music scene creating strategic alliances with SRH, Revolt n Style Magazine, local venues, bars and clubs provided entertainers, sponsoring events and passing out cards.
It was the 90’s. Before the internet. To get your brand out there was hard work. I used to take my promotions girls out on roller skates wearing tight Bad Girl T-Shirts and short skirts. We would pass out business cards and since everyone now had computers, my girls and I passed out screen savers which had pictures of my Bad Girls and ads for the company. Guerrilla marketing at its finest. I did this before I ever knew what the “Guerrilla Marketing” meant.
Things went from easy to hard as technology changed. We moved from pagers, to cell phones, to websites, to me programming HTML code, to Flash (bad move), back to HTML, to Word Press, to Weebly, then to custom sites. Every day is a day to learn something new. My goal is to streamline my online service and make planning a bachelor party easy
