Sherrill has been looking for a job since she graduated High School in 2006. She briefly held a position at a supermarket handing out flyers and greeting customers, but this ended up not being a right fit for her because she was unable to see when people were walking in the door. Her Employment Services Team from SPIN in Philadelphia felt that the Discovery process would be the right way to help Sherrill find a rewarding career. During the discovery process, the team learned that Sherrill had a passion for music and loves listening to her CDs. She spends most of her time listening to CDs and has knowledge about many artists. Sherrill always knows the latest hits.
Sherrill and her team began exploring self-employment options and the idea of Sherrill becoming a DJ was put into place. After researching the DJ field and discussing it with Sherrill, it was decided that becoming a DJ that plays family friendly music would be a great career! Sherrill and her business team began forming a business plan to put this dream job into action. With the support of her team, Sherrill officially decided to open her own business, DJ RILLSTAR!
With funding from the Employment Reform Resource Project, Sherrill was able to purchase her own DJ equipment and music to start her own business. After purchasing equipment, Sherrill was trained on how to use it. Sherrill has a visual impairment, so she learned to use her equipment by touch and sound. To help market Sherrill, a webpage, Facebook, and Twitter were all created. She also has her own logo and will be ordering business cards to help promote her family friendly DJ business.
DJ RillStar had her first paying gig on February 15, 2013, and was also the DJ for a private birthday party held on March 2, 2013. She was extremlely excited to start making some money and is proud to say she is self-employed and successful!
