Today we’d like to introduce you to Deandre Taylor.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
My story is not too much different than many others. I came up in the Metropolitan Detroit area, living day to day as my mom struggled to take care of 4 kids. This inspired me and made me push hard to be the best possible entrepreneur possible.
Fast forward to me relocating to Arizona and completing my degree in Information Technology, I still wasn’t satisfied and had a hungry/desire for more. I remembered sitting at my desk at my corporate job saying is 100k a month enough. The answer was NO.
Being around so many different opportunities in Detroit growing up and now living in Arizona which lacked a lot of culture. I decided to take over the Phoenix Nightlife. I became one of the biggest promoters and community activist known in Arizona. I brought out all of my star studded celebrity friends and also did many community service events to bring people together.
One of my biggest community events was called #DoobieQ a community BBQ which features 500+ individuals from the all around the various cities of Arizona featuring their talents amongst celebrity entities. I become known for the events I promoted at clubs and became what many know now as #ITSDOOBIETIME
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
When I first got into the entertainment industry dealing and working with celebrities and doing private events for celebrities. Nobody took me serious. After all we’re talking about a young 23 year old kid Quirino a job making 100k to pursue a dream of working with icons. However my desire and ambition was far greater than what anyone could stop and that motivated me to become the biggest name known in The metropolitan Phoenix Area.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
Many people over the years have asked this question. What makes you better than the next person that put on events or why is it that the community support your events over others. Well the answer was very simple. For me it wasn’t about the celebrities I worked with it was about the people. I made the average person that didn’t have access to iconic individuals feel as though they had every right to be next to this person. This made people strive to be around me and work with me. Everyone was important. Not just the household name.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Never give up and always believe that the universe wants you to succeed. It’s just waiting for you to reach out and say exactly what it is you’re longer for so that your desire can be accomplished.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success means sweat, hardship, pain, and a small Portion of suffering. See many people believe that people such as myself that make 6 figures have had it easy all our lives. When in trust we may have had it worse than most but our desire to succeed and never giving into failure made us/me successful. Success is looking failure in the face and saying you can’t stop me
What’s next for you?
I plan to own multiple venues throughout the country that allows young people the opportunity to showcase their talents. While providing the mainstream celebrity that amazing experience they still like to receive untapped. My vision is to own a complete district of venues giving people various options to come and be entertained. I can’t mention too much of my vision for fear of someone taking the opportunity themselves.
