We had the good fortune of connecting with Fr3deR1cK Taylor and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Fr3deR1cK, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I wanted to start a business that focused on images of tomorrow (the future). I knew people were moving towards a society that focused on images through pictures and I wanted to be a part of that. In my heart looking into the future I knew tomorrow would be pictures.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets my business apart from others is our ability to reach into communities all across the globe. From Kenya to India to the streets of WATTS California. We find the stories that mean the most to the heart and spirit of the world.
I am most proud of the fact that though our direct contact with communities we have helped changed lives physically and holistically. Opening your hearts to others moves the world forward and that is exactly what we do.
Intense belief in our ability to inspire change pushes our business forward. It was never easy but it was worth every minute. We have created content in every corner of the globe. We have pushed the conversation into an arena of inclusivity.
We overcame these challenges by taking an artistic approach to our story telling. We trust our instincts and it always leads us to higher ground. We listen, learn and execute. We find the answers in our heart and then let the mind follow.
The lessons we have learned are simple, every soul has a story and is worth listening to.
What we want to the world to know about our brand is that we understand where the future is going. We can translate the big picture into profit and equity for tomorrow.
The story is in the telling and we are inspired media solutions.
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.
The best places are the ones of the beaten path that encourage the inclusion of all people. The Ryman Auditorium is ground zero for any music experience you want with a mix of history. But now right across the street the History of African-American Music Museum is a game changer. At long last white and black music publiclically stands side by side in Nashville. One cannot live without the other. Their legacies are intertwined together forever.
There is no better place in town for a glass of red wine and pasta than Giovanni’s near Music Row. Speaking of music row don’t miss out on the whipped goat cheese dip with pita bread at the Flatiron.
RCA Studio B is the museum tour to die for if you know music or you just love music history.
Rooftop at the Virgin Hotel is a slice of the global scene to transport you to the world.
Rudy’s Jazz room brings you America’s greatest original musical artistic export Jazz.
The Dive Motel is too cool for school.
The Hotel Preston is funky.
The Graduate Hotel is crazy, sexy cool.
For a bit of ethnocentric history nothing beat Jefferson street and the emerging Buchanan Arts District.
Broadway is second to none for the madness of NashVegas
Division Street is where you just go to get down. All the way down. Don’t mess around.
Sinema is a place to gather with friends who love you and movies.
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?
My Grand Mother Ms. Juanita Jones, was and still is my inspiration. She pushed herself beyond the cotton fields of Memphis Tennessee to find a life for herself that was full of academic accomplishments (she graduated from college) and love (she sent me and my mother to college as well).
She taught school fearlessly on the Southside of Chicago for over 50 years.
She saw everything there was to see in the 20th century. The Good (social justice), the bad (cultural oppression) and the ugly (assassination and political corruption).
In spite of the inequality of America she fought on and loved everyone for who they are and where they were. If I can be half the person she is in life, I have succeeded.
