We were lucky to catch up with George Davis recently and have shared our conversation below.
Alright, George thanks for taking the time to share your stories and insights with us today. Being a business owner can be really hard sometimes. It’s rewarding, but most business owners we’ve spoken sometimes think about what it would have been like to have had a regular job instead. Have you ever wondered that yourself? Maybe you can talk to us about a time when you felt this way?
Overall yes. Having worked previous jobs I already know what it feels like to have a “regular” job. Mainly as a supervisor in the past. I started seeing a pattern with having a direct supervisor over me. I didn’t like it. Most of the time I was great at my jobs. I sacrificed time away from children and my fiancé. I pushed myself to go above and beyond standard results. I trained people to get them ready to take their careers to the next level. Never used vacation time. Never took sick days. Very submissive mind state. I wasn’t happy unless I felt productive. The problem was when you work in these environments and they don’t see the value you bring forward and they steal your ideas without acknowledging your contributions. You start self analyzing. “I’m making this company 6-7 figures annually. My percentage of return is no where near my output. I’m starting to plateau due to mental exhaustion. I’ve become good enough that my supervisors are reliant on me and not producing personal results. I’m also starting to see people around me promoted and advancing that lack actual talent. “I need a change. George how can you encompass this knowledge you’ve accumulated all these years into you?”
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers
I started with the entertainment industry around late 2001, early 2022. Same dream as most wanting to make it big as a mc. I grew up in the cd era so there was a lot of traveling. Going to the spots no one would ever go to. Building a network as I pursued my dreams. I didn’t grasp that an action implemented so many years go would lead to now present day. As far as Davis Global goes. I created my own life line. I was in a very dark place. My fiancé left me, dead-end job, no one to vent to, and not dedicating time to my children. I had to do something. Idle minds are the devil’s playground. I lost my passion for music which to be honest was always more than music. It was my therapy. I had to find a new therapy. Quick. I started Davis Global. Self-made to change the world or at least the ones that want to. Not just my greater good, but to inspire others. It was started as using my brainchild and creating a team of thinkers to help brand and develop. We did the thinking so you can perform the actions and grow your brand. We make it look easy so as an artist, entrepreneur, business owner can do what you set out to do. We created a sports division for athletes from all walks of life. We formed lucrative partnerships with everyone that dreamed big and those partnerships are going stronger than ever today. Majority of the people that do business with us is because they know the track record. The consistency and reliability. Not just the resources of the network, but how we make sure we have clients in the best possible situation to benefit them. I’m proud to be part of the reason people succeed. It’s the legacy for me. There are many ways to make money, but its minimal to create a remembered legacy in today’s climate.
What do you think is the goal or mission that drives your creative journey?
With all the wins I’ve been able to accumulate. I look at goals like a bucket list. My next vision is to own a professional sports team. That’s the move for me. There are so many professional outlets to do this now. With that move. It’s a game changer. At least starting out as a minority stake own then who knows. Utilize your strong suits to create careers. Not jobs. Not passive income. But an appreciated career to change personal circumstances. If your goals don’t scare you. You’re not dreaming big enough. Not nearly big enough. A pro team scares me. Scares me enough to go for it.
Any insights you can share with us about how you built up your social media presence?
Consistency. Be consistent. Be vocal. Interact. DM. Personalization. Social media is growing daily and there is no chance of it slowing down. I went from trying to expand numbers to getting sponsorships and endorsements. It felt like it was an overnight process. But it was me committing it to my schedule. Commit to 3 daily 20-30 minute intervals of networking. I’m going to give some free game right now. On IG post your product or brand find the hottest song out. Not hard. Use the trending song from any of the top streaming platforms. Place the song 7 seconds and tag the artist on that song. Do this breakfast, lunch, and dinner for 2 weeks. Compare those numbers to previous numbers. The story post with the highest views is when your profile has the most traffic. Do majority of your major posts during that interval.
