I had the pleasure of interviewing Dondrick White the president and founder of Aston Martin Entertainment Record Label and Knew Vision Elite Investment. 25; residing in Hot Atlanta. Native of South Carolina and a Super Savvy businessman.
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Well, I love inspiring and motivating others to follow their dreams. Aston Martin Entertainment was launched to create a vehicle larger than myself that pushes pass the limit of “in the box” belief. The luxury entertainment label is powered by my investment company which allows an artist to achieve their wildest dreams; if they want to.
Knew Vision Elite investments makes this possible. A knowledge based corporation which provides resources such as business consultation, credit management, commercial/resident property acquisitions, networking and much more.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your company?
Since the creation of Aston Martin Entertainment I’d say the most interesting thing that has happened to me was meeting Gerry Kelly. The Entertainment label is known for the over the top events and fashion. However; what stood out the most was when Mr. Kelly Quoted;
“I learned that the power of the mind is really a strong thing,” he says, “and if you believe in yourself, nothing is impossible.
Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? I’d say the funniest mistake I made when I first launched the company was planting the seed and expecting to eat the fruit the day after (chuckled the young CEO).
Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that? I’ve learned that solid foundations has to be built in order to sustain the “storm” always be evolving, and all that you seek is seeking you as well.
What do you think makes your company stand out? Well I know for certain the level of sophistication we stand by, we don’t just think about the revenue we provide an experience that’s last a lifetime. The company selects raw talent that uplifts inspires and motivates. AME events are fashion runways, and this is just the tip of the iceberg; stay tuned this year there shall be lots to enjoy!
Can you share a story? The SC Met Gala was a pinnacle night of iconic style with a twist! Hosted by Miss 2017 USA Kara McCullough at the historic 701 Whaley in the heart of Columbia, S.C. This event welcomed creatives and industry paragons alike. However the excitement didn’t stop there—the gala signified a highly upscale party with great performances, attractions, vibes, and music unlike your “typical” gala
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? I’d say be open to collaboration. This is very important in today’s time.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Believe it or not my grandmother played a magnificent role in my current success. Can you share a story? Sure, she supported all of my endeavors. From selling candy in 3rd grade to building sheds at 6AM she always kept us hard at work. That discipline is what drives me to keep going.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? I have used my success to bring goodness to the world by simply being me. This has inspired so many other colleagues to follow their dreams which ultimately blows the cap off their own potential. I wish all nothing but success.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? If at first you don’t succeed get back up and try again. Life doesn’t really care about what happens. Life wants you to keep going, that’s what you call living.
What are your “5 things I wish someone told me before I started my company” and why. Please share a story or example for each.
You are your only limit. Life is an abundance of endless possibilities.
It’s ok to be authentic self. Be cool, Be open, BE YOU.
Nothing is ever a failure. Look at life as a series of lessons, learn and apply.
Keep evolving. Each day you rise to a new occasion, if you choose to remain stagnant then never blame anyone else for your troubles.
Dont worry be happy. Live stress free, life is what you make it enjoy the never-ending ride.
You are a person of great influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? Well you know I’d leave you all with this. Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect all that you desire, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, and think of others. You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂
