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

Hi Jevon, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I think that it can be done but more importantly I think that you have to know that you were going to be making a lot of huge sacrifices for the sake of your business being a start up business regardless if you have the funding or not its a 24 hour seven days a week job most importantly you have to know that you have to make personal sacrifices with your own mental or spiritual growth as well from not having time to sleep or even just having moments of leisure they’re going to be moment where are you going to be missing friends family and even personal relationships are going to fall but you have to remember is this what YOU want for your LIFE!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Working in crisis management and also working in PR in the entertainment sector that only at the time could be sometimes challenging but at the same time I used to jokingly state that it was another word for parent you’re constantly reapplying rules of etiquette exposure things to do things not to do to clients and sometimes cleaning up things that took place.. I don’t have a proud moment I would say my moment of proudness is the ability of having clients is for them to reach biggest potential for them to finally see themselves to finally hear themselves to finally have a voice for themselves. Nothing was ever easy sometimes I have a client stated no TV show or network or even radio one of them on and sometimes I have clients that radio television constantly wanted them on that also include a blogs as well . One of the biggest lessons are learned along the way and I constantly practice this outward towards people ask me about wanting to be in the entertainment business is that you cannot be a fan of anybody that you work with you cannot you have to look at it and seek it as a job and do your best job that’s it . I am still finding out about me and my legacy I think that the world will love my books and other projects and I hope my Best accomplishment will be is being a father to an amazing child or children and I was just blessed to work with some amazing entertainers and to help them see themselves and to be even be bigger

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?
Well it would all depend on what type of friend is it is in my mind works differently does his friend like to shop does this friend like to sleep and does his friend like champagne or wine those things matter to me because stand that’s how I can curate an amazing trip for myself friend but if I had to

It would be :

Friday night dinner and drinks at a place in atlanta called Gios chicken Italiano the food is family style and it’s walking distance to ice cream as well after or Italian gelato ..
Saturday morning would have to be rays on the river nice view amazing meal
That evening it’s all about going to the way side for hot wings and fries for lunch you can’t come to atlanta with out getting 10 pc and fries
From the atlanta night club of club hopping to 4am Waffle House vists
And Sundays is filled with nothing but great soul food and walks around the park or mall shopping
