We had the good fortune of connecting with Red Almighty and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Red, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
That’s a very good question. I find it funny that my business actually started off with me just making people laugh on social media. I mean I don’t mean to brag but I must, ever since I was a kid I was always pretty funny and understood the importance of laughter. Some people say laughter is good for the soul and sometimes the best medicine and I believe it. Me making people laugh on social media began to draw followers and with more followers came more opinions. Strangely enough lots of random people on the internet, mixed with a couple close friends talked me into creating a podcast to express my views and share my funny perspectives. While getting the podcast started I was then talked into creating an LLC for myself by close friends! Go figure , now that I’m answering this question I am realizing my thought process came from the opinions and hopes of others who genuinely felt I have a gift of gab and laughter .
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.
My transparency sets me apart from a lot of people. Given how social media is set up all around vane trends, designer this and that, and basic all around popularity contests. I’m someone from a VERY humble background and I believe my humor reflects that. I’m part of the 99% and I want people to know that and see me as relatable to say the least!
I’m most proud of the feedback I’ve received , whether it be a comment on a post , a voice message left on the podcast, a shoutout from someone who listened and laughed, or even a text from a friend. It really makes me feel good to know I could help in maybe giving someone a good laugh or smile .. Those are kind of hard to come by sometimes
Was it easy? I mean in life is ANYTHING easy lol? Everything takes time and learning and I’m a student of the game, so like a true artist I embrace a good challenge. Lessons I have learned are simple “KEEP GOING!!!!” In the words of the late and great Nip “the only thing that’s separating me from anybody else is that I didn’t give up. I went through every emotion ….and I still didn’t give up”. Don’t give up, if you have a dream you better chase it like your name MEEK MILL!!!
What I want the world to know about me? I want the world to know you’re looking at the next major podcasting mogul ! I have a passion for this, and I have decided that I want to share my funny and my sometimes weirdly sad yet realistic view with you all so like it, hate it, or love it … I really prefer if you’d all love it, but I totally understand if you don’t! Some people prefer TEQUILA and just because they do, that doesn’t mean VODKA is terrible
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.
This is ATLANTA… lol go downtown, if you can’t find something to do just wait on it because SOMETHING TO DO WILL FIND YOU! I would suggest going to fun things like the “Trap Museum” for the culture . Go to Edgewood for the bar scene if you like drinks and a little danger 😉. This is Atlanta food is good everywhere
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Big shoutout to my mother for bringing me into this world and teaching me the value of love and laughter ..
Also big but NOT as big shoutout to my good friend and owner of ChopTchop African cuisine: Micheal Zambo
