Interview with Entrepreneur CEO-ISHHH
Meet Ceo–Ishhh an ambitious entrepreneur building a multi-million dollar clothing empire. He is also a celebrity manager, publicist and wealth coach.
HOW DID YOU BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR?
My Entrepreneur story was birthed by pain, sometimes our greatest victories come out of our despair. I was going through one of the worst times in my life. I was living in Philadelphia while working in Delaware. Each day I would drive two hours to get to work and back home. The management was horrible, and I felt extremely unappreciated. I wasn’t appreciated at work and I definitely wasn’t appreciated at home. My woman would belittle me, and she would put great effort in trying to make me feel small. I remember crying often and thinking to myself that something had to change. She eventually left me for another man, got pregnant and left me heartbroken. I was determined from that point on to become successful by any means necessary. A woman can break my heart, but money and success can’t. I began to put my pain into my business, and I created something wonderful.
HOW DID YOU GET YOUR NAME?
My name is Ishmael, growing up everyone used to call me “Ish,” so when I became a CEO of my own company I decided to call myself CEO ISH. I later added the other two H’s for SEO purposes. So that’s how I got the name CEO-ISHHH !!!
WHAT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED?
It’s simple, I never want to go back to working for someone else. I never want to feel lacking. I believe that poverty is the root of all evil. My faith in God also enhances my desire to fulfil my purpose here on earth. When I was younger it was about me, myself, and I. As I have grown into a man, it’s about helping others. If I’m not in a good position, I’m not able to help others. So, it’s all about staying in position to help others.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS?
I started “Blessionaire Apparel” a luxury and fitness style clothing line. My line is growing rapidly, with everyone from Bull Bullard from the “Harlem Globetrotters”, Dj Envy, Monae Davis, Jadakiss and more supporting my brand. I also started a PR and marketing company where I help my clients brand themselves. I’m also taking on the role of a wealth coach and teaching my students how to quit their jobs and learn new skills for making money.
WHAT’S SOME ADVICE YOU CAN OFFER TO NEW ENTREPRENEURS?
Don’t give up, you can do anything you put your mind to. Keep God first, he will truly direct your paths if you allow him to. Never listen to your doubters, because they are only jealous of you. Lastly, work like your life depends on it.
