Getting to Know a CEO : Aris BlossomYou may have heard of Madd Illz, Fish Scales from Nappy Roots, Marcus Jae, or Ya Za, but they have one name incommon and it is a privilege to have this person in my circle. I have been networking with professionals in the Public Relations field and to be terriblystraightforward, it can be overbearing. I have been learning so much over the past few weeks, I have my trusty jotter with notes galore. But this one younglady that intrigued me because she was in the exact position I am currently in two years ago.
Her name is Aris Blossom, CEO and Cofounder of Rising Phoenix Entertainment Group, an artist management and Consulting company and Co host of  HeartbeatRadi0, an online radio show. Getting to Know a CEO : Aris BlossomThough Public Relations may not be her career choice; she acknowledges that it is an integral part of the growth of an artist. She has had her fair share of PR responsibilities when she was elected PR for Black Student Union at Full Sail University, and this was the turning point of her life.Getting to Know a CEO : Aris Blossom        Fish Scales from southern Hip Hop group Nappy Roots approached her and former partner concerning managing his solo career, this was a great business juncture that she could never pass up. Materializing the passion for music and the entertainment into an actual career can be very electrifying ask her. She will say how Rising Phoenix went from one client to six in just a couple years, this does not include the other artists and companies that she consults for.

       With any career there are Perquisites and disadvantages that come with the job.  Travelling around the country, connecting and networking with new people everyday are the highlights of her job, while the lack of sleep is the sole limitation. But she comprehended the lifestyle prior to choosing Entertainment business as a career path. No matter how cantankerous or fatigued you are, as an artist manager, you must always be amicable and always keep your artists’ interest in mind, they are the main focus of the business and every effort you make is for them.         At this point in her life, she wouldn’t want to be anyone else except herself, but in the next 10 years she would like to have business relationships with Daymond John, Founder of Fubu , Clive Davis or anyone major that can propel her career furtherWhile many would deem Aris an efficacious businesswoman who has many developments and projects under her name, she said, “Success is a state of mind. but I have accomplished a lot."

In my next post, I will focus on Aris' days at Full Sail University, and what she really thinks of Public Relations
