Everyone knows that people need support in their lives. We need support to raise our children, to assist our loved ones, and to receive encouragement as we travel life’s path. However, as entrepreneurs we often underplay the importance of having a good support network to assist us in our creative endeavors. We can sometimes feel that if we rely on others for support then we are not achieving personal success. Not so. Every entrepreneur should have a good support network in place to assist them in  achieving their goals.


Business Assistance
Even creative people sometimes need help with their creations. Every entrepreneur should have a community to support them on their journey to success. A support network is a great way to find encouragement, seek advice and discover resources. Often an entrepreneur is good at one facet of business, but may lack the skills or connections to deal with the whole business picture by themselves. A like-minded support system is a great way to find manufacturers for products, lawyers, accountants and web hosts. A great group of peers can assist each other in determining price points, finding avenues to create revenue, discovering marketing

strategies and handling human resource issues.
Successful entrepreneurs know that a supportive community of skilled professionals is essential to success, because often busy entrepreneurs need to have resources available to pull from. Maybe they need advise, or access to a subject matter expert, or someone to assist with work overflow. A successful peer group provides you with people who can challenge your ideas, hold brainstorming sessions and assist you in thinking your plans through.

Find a Mentor
A mentor can be one of the most influential people in your life as you embark on both your business and personal projects. Mentors have unique experiences that can help their protégés along their creative and career paths. Look for a mentor who has the same career goals that you have, and who can also benefit from your relationship. Many successful people choose to mentor as a way to share their knowledge and hone their leadership skills.

Become a Mentor
Most successful entrepreneurs understand how difficult it can be to develop ideas that turn into financially thriving businesses. As a result, many of today’s best and brightest people seek to share their experiences with others as mentors. Don’t assume that your experiences aren’t important; every success and failure is a learning experience. Sharing you

Catchin Wreck Empire: The Kingsley Osei Story
Entertainment is a billion dollar business, I love Entertainment, it's my Business and I am good at it..

What is your business quote?
I have two, “The streets don’t lie” and “Still catchin' wreck.”
Are you in a relationship? How is your relationship and business?
Yes, I am in a relationship. It’s not a good mix, but I make the best out of it.
How long have you been running your business full-time?
I have been running my own business for twenty years now. I will be hosting my 20th year anniversary this summer.
How did you get started?
There has been three parts of my career:  DJ, retailer & marketer. As a DJ, in the early 90’s, I used to record mix tapes and sell them to friends. I also DJ'd at house parties and in clubs.IN 1998 I WAS AWARDED BEST MIXTAPE DJ IN CT. BY (JUSTO MIXTAPE AWARDS). I was also spinning at WXCI & WVOF in 1991. I DJ'd until selling mix tapes on the sidewalk of the arcade mall led me to opening one of the most memorable mom & pop soundscan record stores Connecticut has ever had. One of the most memorable in-store events I hosted was given by the artist Lil' Kim. As a member of V.I.P record pool, whose members included funk flex, jazzy joice and many others, I would frequently catch the train to NY and walk from label to label for vinyl until my polo back pack was full of white labels.  I attended my first music conventions during those years, including:  “New Music Seminar," “Jack The Rapper,” “How Can I be Down," and Gavin CMJ.

What Are the Pros and Cons of Audio Books Vs Regular Books

Technology has changed so much of how we do just about everything. Reading is no exception. Thoughts and ideas captured on paper have given civilization accounts of the past and was an essential form of communication, record keeping and storytelling. Much of what we know about the world has come from the written word. However, audio books are now stiff competition against paper books as the best way to relay information or tell a good story.
