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

Hi Chasity, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
The single most important decision that I made that has contributed to my success is relocating. I am originally from the Southside of Chicago and that is where I started my music business journey. There are so many talented individuals in Chicago and I connected with so many great people along the way. I learned a lot in the process. Making the decision to take a leap of faith has allowed me to expand my business to a larger network and grow tremendously. Although things get tough, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

IAM AWTHENIK is a managing and consulting company that focuses on talent management in the entertainment industry. My experience includes brand marketing, bookings, calendar management, contract negotiation and so much more. With Candace Wakefield (5X Grammy Award winning vocalist, singer/songwriter) and a growing roster; business has been phenomenal.

The new addition to my company, IAM AWTHENIK Media focuses on capturing and marketing coverage for entertainment events including music gatherings, movie premieres and all things entertainment. We market and promote events and provide brand awareness.

Being a thriving, independent, successful woman in a male dominated industry is what sets me apart.

Business-wise I got where I am today by being determined to follow my dreams and never giving up. Following ones dreams is never easy. It is a challenging journey of ups and downs that will either make you stronger or break you down.

The only key to success is to never, ever give up!

The lessons I’ve learned along the way is to always remember why you started and focus on the goal. Do whatever it takes to overcome any obstacles that may arise.

I want the world to know that it doesn’t matter where you’re from or how you start. Chicago made me who I am and I honestly would not be where I am today without home. I started my journey there in 2012 by believing in Misha G, the first artist that I ever managed and she motivated me to focus on my passion. Being passionate about working with creatives such as herself has carried me over the years and pushed me to where I am now. SHOUTOUT to Misha G.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

As a lover of nature we would definitely make a stop at the Botanical Garden for a beautiful nature walk as we take time to catch up with some girl talk.

State Farm Arena is a go to for some fun at a Hawks game. Especially if the Bulls are in town!

Paying homage by visiting Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is a must for those in the area.

Slutty Vegan, Waffle House and Magic City are on the list for food….drinks and excitement!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?

A special Shoutout is dedicated to Candace Wakefield. Candace has been a huge part of my journey and an important piece to my puzzle. Without her encouragement, trust and belief in me my current story would be a lot different than it is today. I am forever grateful for her and the amazing talent she is blessed with.

The biggest Shoutout ever is to my family and friends in Chicago who inspire me and see so much in me, that I sometimes fail to see in myself. Without even knowing it, they motivate me daily to continue with pursuing my dreams. For that, Shoutout to each and every one of you. I love you more than you know!

Shoutout to my media team: Camille aka Cici from Open Book with Cici, my cinematographer Sean Cross and my audio/visual engineer Austin Parker. Thank you all for your trust in me and all the work that you do with IAM AWTHENIK Media.

Lastly, shoutout to all those who support me. I appreciate you!
