Read "About US "From FestivalNet Web Page
When When Kurt was about 10 years old, he met a man his Dad was purchasing a travel trailer from. For some reason Kurt found this man to be very interesting and later he asked his Dad what the man did, he said "he owns a couple of different businesses, he is a real entrepreneur." Kurt told his Dad, "That's what I want to be!" Fifty something years later after starting a lawn cutting business at 12, Kurt has owned; an entertainment booking agency, video taping service, festival food concession, college corner bar, ice cream/sandwich shop, web development & hosting company, rental real estate and FestivalNet. Along the way he managed a movie theater, delivered news papers, pumped gas, picked peaches, sold newspapers, worked as an insurance claims adjuster, boarded horses, ran a ball park concession, managed his singer/comedian brother, Kier. Currently Kurt is co-owner of FN and is involved with a non-profit Musicforhumanity.org. He has a BS in Financial Management from Clemson University. Kurt claims he revived the word "groovy", much to the amusement and sometimes embarrassment of his friends and wife. He and Connie lived in Asheville for 20 years, but now live in a small town on the southwest coast of Florida. Kurt plans to be an entrepreneur the rest of his life.
Connie is co-owner of FestivalNet and the CFO of the company. She is a major animal enthusiast and passionate about animal welfare. She created and manages Lost Pets of Western NC, a free lost/found animal web site. Connie lived in the Asheville area for 20 years with her husband and business partner, Kurt and their cats. They now live in a small town on the southwest coast of Florida, but keep close ties with Asheville. They are down to one cat, which is just wrong, so that will likely change soon! She has a degree in Urban Planning that, thankfully she hasn't used in a long time. In addition to a long history in the special events business, she and Kurt also buy and renovate a house now and then, one of Connie's favorite pastimes. She has had large gardens most of her life, but Florida is tough. Her most successful crop there has been lettuce. Connie loves and appreciates every wonderful person on the FestivalNet team and is grateful for each member and customer. As orders are recorded, she actually says a quiet thank you to each person by name."
