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

Hi Tone, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind the success of myself and brand is my consistent act of professionalism. It makes people appreciate their time of working with me because I keep my professionalism at an all time high, at all times.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I started as a rapper and evolved into so much more. A manager, music label owner, photographer, consultant and even more. So I had to overcome the obstacle if people telling me I couldn’t do all these things, like none of it is possible to do it all. It was a long journey but I’m doing everything I said I would and wanted to do. My brand is all about versatility and professionalism! Those are the main two but also we are all about growth. You work with us you will grow in your career and as a person and that’s what I think sets me a part from others, I want to tap into the person as well as their career. I’ve learned that you can’t help what people are going to say about you as you are coming up, the key thing is to never stop. You’re going to go through every emotion but don’t you ever stop, that’s the key!

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.
That’s a hard question because as much as I work I haven’t been doing too much. But of course the beach is always a vibe so I would just make sure we get them some good food and good vibes. Not really hard to please my friends.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My team! The whole All About Growth camp because I do it for them! My children of course, my wife for all the constructive criticism and my guardian angels (My Father, Grandmother & Grandfather) for watching over me and not letting my spirit be broken!
