We had the good fortune of connecting with Miss Opportunity and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Miss, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Going through the thought process to start my own business all I could think about was how I was going against the expectations set on me. I was being told to finish school, get a job, start a family, become a leader of the community, and only use my gift as a hobby. Not being encouraged or taken seriously to have my own. So, I wanted to create a platform that would not only support entrepreneurs but market their services and products everywhere. Plus, to take it a step further I wanted to provide a learning system to help business owners stay in business. When you become an entrepreneur to you sign up for long nights, additional life trails, and there is no safety net in this industry. I wanted Key 2the Puzzle Entertainment to provide a foundation of support from mental health, expos presented by successful peers, and seminars filled with information.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Key 2the Puzzle Entertainment is a marketing provider for entrepreneurs and creatives. We create marketing strategies to help business gain maximum exposer via podcasts, magazines, newspapers, live streaming, radio, events, and more! I created a talk show called Opportunity LIVE where we interview different industry influencers where they can talk about their journeys and businesses. As well as live performers, cupcakes, mimosas, and prize giveaways. Which will now be streamed on multiple Roku channels. Once the episode has aired, it is feature in multiple blogs and magazine outlets throughout the country.
I’m excited to say that everyone who has been apart of my show has flourished and expanded their business. That my J’Nya Li vegan lip gloss has been awarded AMAZON top pick. London Montrese, an amazing singer was able to perform at the Arizona Hip Hop Annual Festival as the first openly transgender country singer who is now writing song in LA California with different music producers developing a new sound. JERS, a rap from Jersey was able to do his first media tour in AZ and be accepted in our music culture. His accomplishments out here awarded him the opportunity to be the face of Seasons Fragrance for men. Last but not least, my newest client Rizo Royal a model, has landed her first Brand Ambassador job with ICE BREAKER water!
What sets me apart from everyone else is that I teach my clients about their craft, control the narratives so they don’t have to conform to what society deems popular at the moment. I believe in breaking generational curses and creating generational wealth. I care about their mental, physical, and emotional state of mind which is why my process takes time. I want them to be able to maintain uniqueness while creating finical stability. I got to this position by learning to be transparent and trusting the people around me. I let them know it is ok to have down falls, somethings are not going to work the first time around. Creating a safe space to start their foundations to their individual brands.
A combination of reliance and confidence is how I built Key 2the Puzzle Entertainment. I want to encourage my future clients to be themselves and be ready to stand 10 toes down where they are investing their money.
