Vocal readers, please enjoy our interview!
What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
I believe everything that inspired me first came from sports. When I was younger I grew up at a community center called Westmoreland which is on the East Side of Syracuse. It gave me an intangible working hard and tough mindset that allowed me to be able to build social skills over time. I then started going to a place called Hillside where I was able to start taking action on my business. I was able to create flyers, begin to formulate a plan, then get into party promotion. Which gave me some more skills in networking marketing.
What do you love about the work that you do?
I love how authentic I can be. I can express myself and have an environment that is safe and a community that believes in each other, I’m all about vibes and energy. I need to be around good energy because it’s important for me to feel excited and happy to work with someone. With the business that I do, I can network with like-minded individuals and build financial freedom .
What are some hardships you've dealt with during your career so far?
Most of the hardships are the learning lessons that you have to go through as an entrepreneur. You have to work hard even though you don’t see the results right away. You need to have a lot of mental energy and discipline to keep going.
At first, you may be underpaid, but the end result will be in your favor. Keep building your mindset and practice more gratitude. At times it can be tempting to give up . It gets lonely, and you have to do a lot of self-reflection.
What is your stance on the Black Lives Matter Movement?
As human beings and individuals on this earth we should all have respect , equality, and empathy for each other. I believe as minorities we are not heard or comprehended. It makes us feel the need to support each other and rebel against the disrespect and undervalue that the black and brown have faced for 400 years. We are now seeing that our power and influence can get attention but that’s step one. We must elevate and grow with this and take ourselves to the next level of building each other up mentally.
How has the pandemic changed the work that you do and your day-to-day life?
It didn’t change my life too much for me. However, I have been going towards faster ways of communication and going where the consumer is going. I knew zooms and telegrams would become a thing because everyone wants to be able to use their devices in their day-to-day lives. It’s apart of our lifestyle. It’s a habit, so I knew that to get people to grow with my business I had to move forward with how the trends move.
What are the most epic moments thus far in your career ?
The most epic moment for me is the people I got to network with. I love building business relationships. I’ve been able to see many people grow as content creators, artists, athletes, and entrepreneurs. I love to see the development of my people and to give back to the community. I love being able to show love and seeing my customers face when they get the items they've purchase d.
What’s next for you?
What's next for me is expansion and building on real estate, services, and our network. I believe that we are just beginning. Once we bring the right people on board the expansion and vision will be more clear. We can then make some major shifts in the market and do something never done before in the Fintech, Music, Fashion, and Consumer Device industries.
Also I'm building my distribution and data centers. Along with building my investment vehicle with forex, stock, and crypto investing .
What are you currently working on?
Right now I’m building my proposal, getting marketing campaigns done, budgeting my business , and working on how I can get the investment capital to scale the business. Currently I'm taking it one day at a time as I get to build the front of my business, hire people to build the back end of my business, and grow this corporation and community .
What are some social awareness topics you think our country or the world should be shedding more light on?
The first thing is planting more trees to be able to use renewable energy. I also believe we need to put out more awareness on sex trafficking and pedophilia that is going on in this country.
I also want to shine a light on the corruption of banks and pharmaceutical companies and how we are relying too much on old principles and views that have ruined our economy.
I want to see us get more aware of how the education system has become extinct and outdated. We need to understand how fast we are learning and get more aware of what’s going on within our communities .
What do you think is the future of your industry?
The adoption of cryptocurrency and renewable energy is the future. I also think within the industrial market using different machinery and bio fabric instead of cotton to start being conscious of our environment.
I believe Artificial Intelligence Robot with Bellz Approved Mindset will be something amazing to see. Vertical farming and vegan foods we can trust and marijuana.
AI robots in factory driven cars, stores, warehouses, dogs, and teachers. Telepathic energy with AI, VR platforms for running and jogging.
Audi electric cars and at-home charging stations. Auto vans and auto trucks, AI drones, electric vertical aircraft, airbus transportation, Hyper-loop transportation, and renewable energy (Solar power and wind power and crypto power).
