Driveway shares best practices for networking, marketing, and building a community using social media.  We talk about his passion for dancehall culture, the mission to showcase Atlanta talent, and much more.

If you want a movement to go a certain way you need other people to help you get there.  It is never on yourself.

 

No matter how much blood sweat and tears you put into it, If you don’t have a team or supporters, you only can go so far.

It’s a marketing strategy.  If people know you’re willing to support them, then they’re more likely to support you.
