We had the good fortune of connecting with Devonte Goodwine and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Devonte, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I felt like I was allowing too much time to pass by. Overthinking about what I didn’t have in order to get started. So I changed my mind set and decided to step out on faith. Doors started to open and the rest is history.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I love filming and doing photography. Being able to take your ideas and bring them to life is an amazing feeling. I gained my A.A. in Digital Media Technology in Valdosta, Ga from Wiregrass Tech. After that I relocated to Atlanta, Ga where I obtained my B.A. in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production. Definitely was a long road but it was the best decision I ever made. I’ve learned that networking is key. Who you know can get in the door and what you know can keep you there. I just want the world to see my visions the way I see them. We all have a different perspective on everything and I want to share mine with generations to come.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them downtown Atlanta of course to kind of sightsee like the Atlanta Hawks Area, the CNN building, the NCAA hall of fame , and/ or the Georgia Aquarium. Then maybe to a few bars like the Hole in the Wall or Barnacles. Many places to eat and I like to keep it simple so my favorite places to eat are American Deli, Wing Stop, Sumo Wings and Hibachi etc. Lastly, maybe a comedy show or a movie at the Studio Movie Grill where you can eat and drink while enjoying a good movie. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Most definitely my wife Mia. She has been extremely supportive every step of the way. To pursue owning your own business it takes investing in yourself financially and mentally. She completely understands that and motivates me to push forward no matter what
