Who is berry gordy dating
A lot of my clients refer to me as Robin Hood or Professor Gordy and I love that!
Being Berry Gordy's son is both an asset and a liability; an asset because people are always intrigued by the wonder of how it all happened: Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Rick James and so many others.
There are certain stigmas attached with being the son of Berry Gordy, as such, most are of the mind that I’ve already got what I need to fund whatever projects I have slated, strictly based on the assumption that my father is backing it, and that if he’s not, that there must be something wrong with me, and no one with any aspirations to success in this industry, wants to be on Berry Gordy's bad side. I mean, why would anyone want to fund Bill Gates' son especially if Bill Gates is not involved.
A prominent investor once asked me, " Why would I fund the idiot son of a lucky mogul?
Was it simply a matter of the talent selling the brand or did your father have to work at "getting the word out" about this new record label all those years ago?
So, to that end, we made sure that we had exceptional songwriting and producing talent and a passion for excellence, which superseded all others.And being Berry Gordy's son means I can always get a meeting!But, being the son of Motown can also be a liability because I'm an entrepreneur that has to raise money for my projects.Then we reinvested our profits back into our growing business. Instead, talent is the common denominator that must be present in order to create the initial visibility for the brand.Once the brand's visibility is realized then the team's responsibility is to take the brand from visibility into the stratosphere.
