In the ever-changing world of entertainment everyone needs a Mone Symone in their contact list. The Chicago-bred artist and entrepreneur is the Founder and CEO of Atlanta-based MS Music Group, a full-time entertainment company handling the public relations, music management and brand development needs of talented artists all over the world.
We had the pleasure of catching up with Mone to learn a little more about MS Music Group. Check it out below.
HHW: For our readers who aren’t familiar, can you introduce yourself and tell us a little about your company.
Mone Symone: My name is Mone Symone and I’m the Founder and CEO of MS Music Group. MS Music Group is a full-time entertainment company. We help with brand development, music management, public relations and more. When I started this company I had only one thing in mind. That was to help artist to achieve their goals. As an artist myself, I know how difficult it can be to make it in the music industry. You can have all the talent in the world but if you don’t have the resources you won’t be able to reach your full potential. I want MS Music Group to be a safe haven to all of our artist, providing them with the tools necessary to become a success story.
HHW: More specifically can you give us some examples of what MS Music Group has done for artists?
Mone Symone: We’ve organized music showcase events, artist boot-camps, etc.; giving out money and studio time to artists to give them something to look forward to. MS Music Group will also be opening it’s very own studio location this Summer where artists can practice, perform, and record.
HHW: What would you say has been one of your largest challenges?
Mone Symone: One of the biggest challenges I’ve faced was building the actual platform. Of course not everyone will see the vision, so you have to work very hard to get ahead in this music industry. Being a Black women in America is already a challenge, and being a black entrepreneur trying to build an empire was even more of a challenge.
HHW: What wisdom would you pass on to aspiring artists and entrepreneurs?
Mone Symone: I would say to never give up no matter what! Patience is the key to success. Success doesn’t happen overnight. You have to put your trust in God, give back and expect nothing in return, and you will accomplish ANYTHING you put your mind to. Sometimes we as artists are always in a rush to live a different lifestyle than the one we’re used to. Just wait
your turn and stay persistent. Do it alone, do it scared, do it broke, just do it!
HHW: Where do you see yourself and MS Music Group five years from now?
Mone Symone: I see MS Music Group being one of the top music companies in the world. And I’m already living my dreams, so just being able to make a difference in artist’s lives.
