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

Hi Jamal, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking is friends with business owners such as myself. I’ve endure a lot obstacles during my journey and still is in this exact time.
I had to sacrifice my time with family as well as certain hobbies to achieve the goal. Even when it comes to your health I had to take risk of lack step for a huge playoff. Going into unfamiliar places to get a better understanding of my business and environment. The biggest risk I’ve toking was stepping out of my comfort zone.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The path I took as a entrepreneur wasn’t easy. I had to take the proper steps for success but there’s no handbook to guide you. I’ve work so hard on my craft challenging myself to do something different to stick out from the rest. As a entrepreneur I’ve lost a lot of money, sleep, friends, and time with my family. Those are the biggest sacrifices I had to encounter in my growth as a business owner. But never the less, I’ve over come those set backs and put things in place to better my future relationship with my family. I had to create booking sites and schedule so I can organize my flow of my business. So I can travel the world and see what’s in store for my soon to be international business.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m in to. Outdoor activities such as running trails, rock climbing, and skating. So can catch me working out at OVERLOOK or Atlanta Beltline.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I give credit to my grandparents who impact my life tremendously. They taught me self honor and respect for others. My grandma taught me how to draw but couldn’t her self. My grandfather showed me what hard work look like and how to use my hands. Those two people has paved my life with knowledge of entrepreneurship.
