Jason Harrelson is the founder of Harrelson Trumpets. An experience in college led Jason to question what made one trumpet sound good while another sounded bad. Following that question all the way down the rabbit hole caused Jason to drop out of school and start his own company manufacturing high-end custom brass instruments. When you ask Jason what he does, however, he calls himself an inventor. Join us as we talk to Jason about:

  • Growing up in the cab of a Big Rig and learning to make your own fun on the road
  • Gaining knowledge and skills without learning to conform
  • Falling in love with the trumpet
  • How becoming a police officer taught him to be a better businessman
  • The future of Harrelson and his philosophy on life
