9. What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.
5 things I wish someone told me when I first started is
1 stay true to your fans , why ? Your fans is your number one supporters make sure you interact if they don’t know you they won’t support you.
- Don’t trust every single person who has talent . You have talent trust yourself you don’t need a wide group of people getting into your business when your making your “own brand”
- Make sure you are mentally prepared for being the talk of the town . I never understood why people you don’t know at all carry so much hate for somebody they don’t even know. I am a humbled dude and definitely heard crazy stories that I never knew of myself .
- Invest every penny that you can give into your business . If you can’t “invest”then you will never be a boss
- And last but not least I wish someone told me to save at a young age , if your a young person starting a business and actually proceeded to do well at it save up you’ll be surprised at what you have throughout your years of grinding with your platform
10. Can you please give us your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life?
My life lesson quote is make sure you have a purpose in life . A lot of people life but that don’t know what they living for it can be for so many reasons and trust me I think we all been there as people, but make sure you wake up with that same life purpose so you won’t be lost it’s hard to get on track when your lost in this world and keep repeating at the same time.
11. 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? Can you share a story about that?
I am grateful for my team called team609 we have so many great entrepreneurs but I thank them because I get motivation from a few of my fellow members there and it’s all genuine love.
12. You are a person of enormous 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? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂
I would start a label for every entrepreneur that does media entertainment like comedians , dancers , singers , producers , artist ,film & editors to make sure everyone has a job and know who to go to
