We had the good fortune of connecting with Keith Larry and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Keith, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When I decided to start my own business, there were many factors that I took into consideration. The first factor that I took into consideration was my family. I want to be able to provide my daughter with generational wealth in the future, while ensuring that my immediate family is well taken care of. The second factor that I took into consideration was, being able to build a business that focus on the collaboration of others in multiple industries, being the point of contact for individuals that want to start their own businesses and may not have the resources or know where to begin. 

One of my favorite quotes is by Helen Keller, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” I believe that when you collaborate with likeminded individuals and brainstorm, we could create something so amazing for the community that is bigger and greater than a vision of one person. I have come across some amazing talent and interviewed many individuals which has spoken on the lack of support from others in the community. Once I noticed the lack of support, the vision became bigger than my plans and I knew from that point forward my purpose is to fulfill the needs of others in the community and provide them with opportunity to collaborate and gain support from our alliance here at Project P.A.T. 

The third factor was being able to generate my own income, work for myself and depart from Corporate America. I believe everyone should have more than one stream of revenue. These are just a few factors but there is a lot more that personally pushed me to start my own business. 

God has given me the vision and it’s within my purpose to fulfill the vision while on earth.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I believe I am a unique individual. My craft is a creation of my thoughts and experiences throughout life. I believe my drive to get the job done right, the ambition to build and grow with others and the ability to be a visionary for myself and others is what set me apart from others. I am most proud of the experience and training that I have received since 2014. Being able to adapt to a new environment is not an easy task however, when you have a goal that you want to achieve, go out an achieve it. I am very proud of my growth and success that I have had as an actor. This has humbled me to become a better person internally and has opened many doors to work behind the scenes on multiple projects as well. Most of all, I am extremely excited about my future. Staying consistent, open-minded, honing the skills of being a leader, striving for greatness, and engaging with successful individuals that has spoken life into my craft along with guiding me in the right direction is how I prospered to where I am today professionally. This was not an easy task, there are always bumps in the road that will push you two step back but when you work on yourself and get in tuned with the universe, the universe begin to work with you and not against you. I can continue to go more in detail on how I overcame these challenges however, FAITH, the Serenity Prayer and our Father himself is what helped me face these challenges. 

Some lessons that I learned along the way is, to not place all your eggs in one basket, disconnect from those that are taking away from your life, surround yourself with likeminded individuals. focus on yourself before focusing on others and be you no matter the circumstance. What is for you, is for you and no man can take that away. I want the world to know remember me as a legend. We only live once so get out there become the greatest person that one can become and strive for greatness.

I will ensure that my brands utilize every resource to make sure that Project P.A.T (Producing Alliances Together) is the next best way to collaborate with others, that makes a greater impact on our communities and that the story behind the man you are reading about has a much bigger impact on the world than others can imagine. It is my mission to make sure that everything that I lay hands on develop and grow no matter whom or what it maybe.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
First, we will go to Rudy’s chicken, the Reunion Tower, Tru Kitchen for the drinks and restaurants we would drink lemonade or water with lemons (Laugh out Loud), we would visit all the amusement parks, Dallas Arboretum, Pin Stacks, and other main attractions around the DFW Metroplex. We would hand out at Texas Live and attended networking events, mixers, day parties and much more. Still learning the area so this is pretty much what I believe is fun and interesting.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
First, to God be the glory. Without the faith, there would be no works. I want to dedicate my shout outs to my immediate family and friends that has supported me through all my success and also those that has provided me the opportunity to network and build my career based on all the experience from each aspect of my life. I also want to dedicate this shoutout to all my struggles and pains… I am better now, and I thank my struggles for placing me in the predicaments to become stronger and has made me who I am today. 

A message from me to the readers.
