Today we’d like to introduce you to Cisco Carter.
Cisco, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I went to school for PR and Advertising, I never worked in those fields coming out of college. I wasn’t the ideal applicant at the time. As I worked to pay my bills instead of working towards my passions, I developed a ton of relationships in Nashville.
I wanted to offer people value and happiness. I would volunteer to introduce people to others, I would tell people who moved here that I would take them out around town so they could meet more like-minded people. I did this so often, almost weekly. This one time, I met a few people from a music festival, we all went out, I introduced them to some influential men and women who could help them succeed.
They told me how valuable my network is and change my life. I went from an influencer for a music festival to holding meetings, hosting, learning the operations, and now playing them like an artist.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I would definitely say, I’ve run into some struggles along the way. I have said so many prayers about the unknown. Roman 8:18 says, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” These tough times are normal, they shape us.
I have had to make many sacrifices of time, money, and relationships to get where I am today. I will continue to have made those decisions daily. My biggest struggle is saying “No.”
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a passion-seeking entrepreneur and entertainer. If I want to learn about it I will borderline obsess until I know enough to teach it. A list of my current employment would be CEO of FOMO Entertainment, CFO of The Bach Bar, Model/Actor, DJ/Artist, Spin Cycling Instructor, and Treasure for Folds Of Honor YPB.
I specialize in mid-level concerts, grand openings, venue, and marketing management. Most of my jobs involved the community. I was hit hard financially through covid quarantine; however, in this time I learned more about people than ever. In the stillness it allowed me to listen, once Nashville opened up, I applied all my educational background, surrounded each company with my missing parts then took others’ words and put them to action.
I believe what sets not only me but the businesses I’m part of from others is that we are built on a morally strong foundation. I’ve watched us take pay cuts to make sure our vendors were happy, stayed late some others can go home, prayed for the ones who couldn’t be here other. I’m living my dream, it’s my duty to make sure others around see what they have provided.
Can you talk to us a bit about the role of luck?
In life, things happen, good and bad. I think we all are fortunate and blessed if we have a chance to read this. I really feel like our decisions determine our destiny. Make wise choices and have faith in the darkest of times.
