I want to make Spartanburg, Greenville, and Anderson look like Texas sports look. I want our videos to look like ESPN highlight clips. When we get there, I can’t imagine the impact we can make on these kids.
What’s your advice for other founders – and have you ever followed bad advice?
I got some bad advice early on from someone who had a similar company to mine, but they covered all kinds of events, not just sports. So, I tried to cover everything and got burned out quickly.
It was fun to cover the NBA and red-carpet events, but my heart is with these kids. Last year I cut out everything else and went back to the core of what I started the company to do: give kids a platform. I found my joy again.
My advice is, if you’re starting a business, look at the competition, but you have to find your own niche. Narrow it down to what you do best, master it, then the results will speak for themselves. If you’re going all over the place and doing twenty different things at once, it’s not necessarily good for you. Start small. Focus on one goal, and don’t move on until you’ve mastered it.
