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

Hi Jacob, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I think of risk as a MUST. It is something you must do in order to be the greater version of yourself. “If you don’t take a chance, you never had a chance.”Risk taking is mandatory in my life. I ended up here in Atlanta because I didn’t wait on anyone, I simply took the risk. It was simple, not easy. There is a BIG difference. I also took the risk of quitting my 9-5 to pursue what I love to do in live which is becoming an actor. “Risk takers, take risk!”

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 am a Casting Director. I put talents in hip-hop & R&B music videos for celebrities as well as upcoming celebrities. I also put talents in documentaries, tv shows, photoshoots, and more! I am most proud of the fact that I am doing great without a 9-5, which is something that i’ve had all my life. Manifestations is what got me to where I am today, professionally. I am the prince of manifestation. Confidence helps with overcoming obstacles that may be in my way. They must bow before me. A lesson I learned along the way is to open my mouth & network. The world will know the mogul that is within me because it will be shown & respected on the out!

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.
Metro Cafe is definitely one of my go to spots to eat at in the Atlanta area. I love playing basketball at La fitness. After getting a couple good runs in at La fitness, you know I have to go to “Honey Bubble” to get myself some bubble tea. The “Trap Museum is wonderful. Lenox mall is a great mall as long as safety is continuously forced. I love going out to bars/lounges such Paparazzi, Blue Lagoon, Harold’s & more.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
God is my plug, my talent agent, my modeling company, my father, my everything. Thank you father.
