My mission in life has always been to efficiently manage and facilitate the creative thinking of others and myself for people’s enjoyment. I hope to explain why I tenaciously pursue this goal everyday in two simple reasons:
It’s my passion.
I spread creative thoughts in the form of music, visual media, entrepreneurial ideas, or any other type of content or company that can spread genuine value to other people because it gives me a sense of purpose.
To me, value is defined as anything that provokes happiness, love, or more creative thinking in another human being. However, for value to be genuine, the content itself must be a true representation of the person creating it. If it isn’t, then it is not true content, it is simply the borrowed ideas of others clouding one’s creative thinking.
We all need money. I choose to make mine by monetizing the spread of creative thought so that the creators of genuine content will be able to live comfortably and have the means to continue creating. Due to the increase in media and technology conglomerates influencing most people's thoughts and actions, I believe that creativity has never been more crucial and pivotal to the development of our society.
However, without capital, I cannot dream of making an impact on this world, especially not in America. Therefore, I hope to facilitate the creative thinking of those that truly stay true themselves, so that perhaps one day mainstream media will be truly content driven and not primarily focused on monetary gain.
When deciding what I wanted to do at a young age, I realized that I really only had to balance these two driving forces in my life to be happy. Therefore, I created Off Topic Entertainment to help balance both my urges to spread genuine content and monetize it, so that one does not become more important than the other.
I hope my company can help independent artists, creative professionals and entrepreneurs around the world achieve this same thing.
