What’s your backstory?
I’ve always been known as a basketball player, however, I want to be known as a businessman, entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist. I’ve always been interested in business and entrepreneurship. You can say I was that kid who was selling electronics and candy bars in high school. When I got to college I had realized business is what I wanted to pursue but I didn’t want to wait until I graduated to start making money or start a business. I wanted to start in college so that way I wasn’t looking for a job frantically like a lot of people do whenever they graduate.
I wanted to prove that you don’t have to drop out to start a business and you don’t have to wait to start a business either.
How did you promote your company in the early days?
Social Media allows you to advertise your brand or company for very little expense. In the beginning, I didn’t spend anything on growing our brand because we have grown it the same way we help our clients grow their accounts by manually reaching out to people and connecting with them.
How have you been able to grow your business?
Beast Media has grown largely from word of mouth! We have also been able to grow because we have an amazing team of account managers and videographers who help provide great work and amazing results for our clients who then spread the word which helps us grow even more.
Where do you see yourself in a couple years? What’s your dream?
In a couple years, I see myself owning my own Investment Management firm for athletes and artist and my dream is to be an Investor and Philanthropist. I want use entrepreneurship and my knowledge of investing to become an Investor and Philanthropist.
