What exactly do you do for a career?

I work in the Entertainment industry in innovative marketing strategies incorporating live events and trade shows into traditional marketing, As well as managing Artist, Talent and business owners. While branding them and creating long-lasting passive income for the individuals.

What was the process for you to find what you wanted to do?

I have worked in the entertainment industry since I was 23 and I’m 36 years old now. I have always loved being a part of the creative process, but I definitely wanted to be a lot more hands-on with it rather than making someone else’s dream become a reality. I worked on music videos and with celebrity stylists over the years. I had a Vape company and was a huge part of bringing trade shows into the industry as well as being a part of them. 4 years ago, I got into the event industry working on things like Coachella, Stagecoah, Flowgnaw, Sephora, Camp Mars, Kanye West Jesus Is King Release, etc and I knew I wanted to incorporate that into my marketing strategies

That I get to create for companies and watch my branding and my ideas come to fruition. I love seeing companies grow from the floor up it’s an amazing thing to watch.

What do you want your audience to know?

Don’t ever give up, some people will tell you that your crazy and you might feel like it sometimes but never give up. Also don’t ever think you know everything because I certainly do not but I’m always willing to grow.

People telling me I was crazy and that all the things I thought were going to happen were delusional, but I just kept growing. A lot of things I did were delusional and I learned the hard way growing up starting businesses and losing them, but it was all part of a bigger picture to get to where I am now.

What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur?

To remain teachable and to always continue learning new skills and remembering you want everyone around you to be successful not just you because then you have more to pull from.
