We had the good fortune of connecting with Remi Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Remi, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When I began my media career, I was a correspondent for a show interviewing artists at various locations as well as at red carpet events. I realized that I loved what I was doing and was passionate about it. Working under someone else no longer felt right for me, so I took a leap of faith and decided to start own show, which I called Remi TV. Using what I learned from my correspondence experience, I built a show that catered to the type of stories I wanted to share and the type of shows that people wanted to watch.
What should our readers know about your business?
My show Remi TV is a television and talk show that appears on both local TV and YouTube. The program features a mix of local and national musical artists and entertainers. My show goes beyond the basics bringing the hottest celebrities from around New England and nationally. what sets my show apart from others is I brings positive and stimulating talk from those who are making a difference in their communities. I highlight the great things that those other shows don’t. My show Remi TV is a safe place for men and women of color to promote themselves and provides a platform to speak of all the good that sets them apart from the rest. No drama involved!
I am super proud that I can give people a voice to promote their businesses and give them a stress free platform to do it on.
This Journey was not an easy one but I have overcame my challenges by staying prayed up. I also Have a great support system that gave me pep talks when I needed them. Throughout this journey I learned that taking self care days are important. When you are working hard to be successful its easy to burn yourself out.
What I want people to know is that you can do whatever you want to do in life. Do not let anyone tell you its not achievable. Work hard, stay consistent, and never give up.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are so many people who have helped me on my Journey. My mother who has giving me so many encouraging words when I wanted to quit. Peggy Williams that women is amazing she let me call her anytime day or night to vent, as well as plugged me in with a lot of people. Stanley Hotinri my camera man who has looked out for me since the beginning. My Fiance who watches all of my interviews. My brother who always emotionally supports. My sister in-law who gives the best advice ever. Last but not least all my supporters who continue to hold me down. I appreciate you and love you.
