If only one person from the wedding party remembers your name, you are on your way to building a business that is big enough to hire other DJs.
When you're the headliner at a club, you are the pilot and your passengers will flock to buckle themselves in for your ride.
Being a famous DJ doesn't mean you have face recognition, which is great because you may have to rob a few banks before you retire.
Think: Skrillex, Diplo, Carl Cox, DJ Tiesto, Tony Okungbowa (Ellen's DJ), Carson Daly, and Howard Stern.
