Khaleel Garcia is the Co-Owner alongside Bernard Love of KB Creative Group. KB Creative Group is a Production and Special Event Coordination team that specializes in artistic and creative direction. I produce events such as fashion shows, concerts and launch parties as well as music videos, promotional ads and commercials and will be getting into film this summer.
How did you determine what you were passionate about?
I took my hobbies and matched them with my skills and the passion came naturally. I’ve always been into designing and producing events, parties and anything hands-on. My business partner is extremely creative, so we matched our skills and turned what we love to do into a business.
What challenges did you you have to overcome to pursue your dreams?
I think all entrepreneurs face the challenge of not giving up. It’s not as easy some days when you are used to a 9 to 5 and having the comfort of knowing when you will see a check, but there is nothing in the world better than setting a goal for yourself based upon your dreams and what you enjoy doing and seeing it grow into a reputable company.
How do you keep yourself focused and productive?
It’s not hard for me stay productive in my field. There is something that always has to be done. There are times when we may have a production or event that’s months away and we are working from conception until the day after the production is done. That’s makes it pretty easy to stay focused.
What would be your advice to someone who is afraid to follow their dreams?
It’s okay to be afraid, it’s no worth it if there is not some sort of fright about just leaping out there, but when you leap, you have to take a leap of faith and know that your dreams, mixed with your God given talent, will take you far and make you truly happy.
