What service does your business provide?
We provide musical production for all genres. This includes movie scores, web series, commercials along with production for independent and mainstream artist.
What inspired you to start it? What problem to you help customers solve?
Being a musician and exposed to the industry, I discovered a passion for creating music and not just playing it. That passion grew into writing music as well.
Creating and performing is a feeling and experience that words cannot explain. To watch a creation come to life and touch the hearts and minds of the listener is what motivates me to keep creating. Music is a universal language that allows me to communicate when I don’t have the words to explain.
What have been some challenges?
Artist/Entertainers/Entrepreneurs face challenges daily. With a world that gravitates or waits for validation in order to support your journey. It’s hard to gain the attention from the masses. It’s almost like this is a club we are trying to get into and if you don’t have someone that’s already in the club to bring you in; it’s going to be impossible to get noticed for membership. Now the name of the game is to create your own club and bring them to you.
Difficult, but not impossible.
What skills have you used to pull it all together?
I’ve acquired a set of skills throughout my life that plays a big role in expanding my brand. Social skills, non- verbal skills which believe it or not speaks volumes when you could communicate without speaking. Knowing how to read your environment and use your strength to your advantages is the best way to be affective in my line of work.
What are main keys to being successful in business?
Professionalism, communication, financial literacy, knowledge pertaining to your business and respect are definitely the keys to being successful in business.
Favorite me time escape?
I have no escape, and don’t need one. When you do what you love you never work a day in your life. I’m blessed for that to be my truth.
What would you like your legacy to be? How do you wanna be remembered?
I want to be remembered as the man that defied the odds and accomplished what society said was impossible. At the same time showing them the source that gave me the strength to do what I do … God.
Any last words of advice for an entrepreneur just starting out?
If I can give advice to someone starting out, I would say celebrate the small wins and keep working. Remember, you only fail when you stop.
