We had the good fortune of connecting with Hykeem Brown and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Hykeem, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Leaving a small city in Mississippi at 5 years old to Atlanta GA, always taught me that many possibilities were there and being very Artistic at a young age. Risk was my smallest worries. I knew if you never try, you will never know and that did not sit well with me. So i made a pact with myself that if i wanted to take that leap of faith, then I’m risking it with everything I got. Empowering is my passion so I’m letting that mindset lead the way to unknown doors.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have to say what sets me apart from other creatives, is that i stay true to myself no matter what, i never fold. I’m a writer first, actor and host and now entrepreneur. I keep my feet in everything, i don’t want to be put in any box, my heart and soul is to bright to be in one. So i can say what keeps me going is just simply never giving up. Nothing worth it, is easy so i tell people don’t get discourage, keep fighting. I want the world to know that Empower-Talk is a place for everyone, life is about unity and love and supporting one another while uplifting, so that’s what Empower-Talk is all about, so make sure you check the podcast shows out, Season 1 is out now and on Youtube along with Instagram (Empower-Talk).
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m a Homebody for the most part but when I’m out i go to parks and outdoor activities, I can tell you to checkout Ponce city Market area out and Botanical Gardens. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to thank God first for keeping me guided into the right directions, My mom for being my biggest Cheerleader and keeping me focus and level headed, Also My friends and family who been there since day one who keeps me full of Personality and driven even on those rainy days, And to my team i want to thank all of my Co-host who play major roles on Empower-Talk, When discovering Empower-Talk I knew i would meet great people and build long life connections along the way. I cant forget about Omar Gooding for being apart of Empower-talk first season as a Guest.
