Flute Center of New York
Phil started Flute Center of New York in 2014. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Flute Center of New York?
As we grew, I realized that I needed help in integrating my company with the growing and connected social media world around me. Being somewhat old-school, I understood that I was simply just not capable of approaching that world and that if I wanted to keep in step with the world around me, I needed to find people that could do what I could not. So, I hired a new CEO and through him, we expanded our operation from 5 people to 10. Of one the most important hires were our new social media director.
Through her incentives and our communal brainstorming, we were able to achieve many firsts in my industry. We took advantage of social media “influencers” and also created a novel teachers’ club. The bottom line is finding ways to enhance your brand. This is our mission today.
I would say that our strongest character as a company is unity amongst our employees (which I prefer to label colleagues). We work in a totally collaborative environment and we are constantly working together to find ways to further expand our brand. Because we have carefully developed a wonderful working workspace, we all happily work towards a common goal, and everyone shares in the companies’ profits through incentive programs we have initiated.
