Indie Connect, Inc.

Intern

January - April 2021 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

I loved working with Vinny! He is a complete angel. It felt like I was a part of the team, not just an intern. I got to help him workshop a lot of ideas for his projects and I was trusted with a lot of responsibility! While Vinny can be super chill at times, just know that you get exactly what you put into this internship. He is happy to introduce hard workers to people who can help them succeed in life.

What I wish was different

Nothing! Working with Vinny was a dream.

Advice

Be prepared to work outside of just the music industry! Vinny has extensive projects that reach into other realms, such as online-platform management and television and film.

Intern

January - April 2021 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

Working with Vinny Ribas and the rest of the team at Indie Connect and The Spark has been nothing short of incredible. Vinny is the most kinda, helpful, and pleasant person I have ever worked with and he is always willing to go the extra mile to help in any way he can! There is always something new to work on and learn about, the work and schedule is very flexible and Vinny will work with you to best fit your needs. I highly recommend this company!!

What I wish was different

I wish I could have had an in-person experience with this company; however, it was still a great learning experience!

CEO Assistant

June - August 2019 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

I was never treated like an intern. Vinny treated me as a partner and had me assisting him with daily tasks, such as posting on the company's app, creating flyers for events, and writing copy for social media posts. I attended every meeting and was encouraged to offer my own advice. I was also invited to every networking event he held, where I got to listen to different people share what they do and what they are looking for, as well as share about myself. Overall, a great experience. I would recommend to anyone who is interested in the entertainment industry, not just artist management.

Advice

You get out what you put in. If you show up and work, you will get rewarded. Don't take Vinny and his impressive network for granted!

Assistant to the CEO

May - August 2018 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

He trusted me with a lot and treated me more as a colleague rather than just an intern.

What I wish was different

There were some days where there wouldn’t be much going on, so I would have to wait for something to come up.

Advice

Be proactive. If you don’t have anything to do, ask for something. If that doesn’t work, come up with something to do yourself and ask if that’d be helpful.
