We had the good fortune of connecting with Eddie Rhodman, Jr. and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eddie, how would your deploy a million dollars, if you had to invest it right now?
I would invest $1 million dollars right now into commercial real estate deals involving a hotelier successful company in whose next hotel development in a prime geographical location, a commercial retail petroleum gas station company owned by a board member and his successful brand, tech, and into my personal business Rhodman Enterprises. Finally, I sow a seed and pay it forward to a startup or minority business owner.
What should our readers know about your business?
A brief synopsis about my business is that I am a business and entertainment consultant providing access, contacts, and influence. My firm is hired to help professionals get access, awareness, and connections to celebrities and athletes. We also work with celebrities and athletes to build their brand and legacy. I am most proud of myself that I continue to work hard and not give up no matter the circumstances that affect us as entrepreneurs and executives on a daily basis. After 15 years, I am excited about the future and what it holds and how I can empower others along the way. A lot of hard work got me here, determination, God-given talent for business, networking, and surprisingly no mentors, so no it was not easy but as someone wise told me, “pressure busts pipes and to be great you cannot buckle under pressure. So to be great you have to get uncomfortable to be comfortable.” I want people to know that my story as a faith-driven leader is still being written as we speak making a global impact by building relationships with people of various backgrounds, cultures, and industries.
I value being dependable and truly caring about people I work with and hope it even comes across when the work is accomplished.
Two words recently used to describe me, “World Changer!” Whether through arts, fashion, music, sports, lifestyle, media, my goal continues to help change the world and expand one’s brand to enlarge its impact and mission!
I hope to truly be a living example of a world changer, today, tomorrow and in the future.
