In this article we discuss how Kyree made a name for himself in his industry and more.


How did you make a name for yourself in your industry?


“I made a name for myself by being that person that could always help. I always went above and beyond for others and made sure to deliver on things. That allowed the people around to see my work ethic which ultimately got me a bunch of referrals. If someone was interested in getting a brand deal, they would call me. If someone needed to get in the studio, needed a producer, engineer, etc they would call me. If someone needed a special contact, they would call me. I did a lot of little things I didn’t really care to do along the way but I always stayed focused on my end goal.”


What obstacles did you face to get to where you are now?


“The biggest obstacle by far when I first started out was finding ways to monetize what I was doing. It was cool to be friends with these high profile people and help them out with business things, but at times it was hard to make money. The toughest thing was getting respected as a businessman, and not just as that friend who is “the plug”.  Also, at times I would be in meetings with high profile people and I would be the youngest in the room. Nobody understood how I got there. “


How did you overcome these obstacles?


“Separating friendship from business and giving the understanding of my worth. In terms of gaining respect, I always make sure to research and come well prepared to meetings. It’s interesting to see people prejudge and then after a conversation see their whole demeanor change towards you.”


What keeps you motivated?


“Seeing what all I have accomplished at a young age and knowing how much more I want to do. I always think about the saying “your network is your net worth.” I surround myself with business minded individuals at which we push each other to keep advancing and never being too complacent with where we are at. But of course, enjoying and being grateful for the moment and what we have, and have accomplished.”


If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?


“Those tough times that you go through at the beginning are only going to prepare you for what is to come along your journey. Always remember your end goal, as you may encounter some non ideal things, but know its just a stepping stone down  the path to your end goal.”
