You've written stage plays, have a radio show, magazine, fragrance, and makeup line... what haven't you done? I am now filming more episodes of a TV pilot that I started in 2011; and I am just looking to assist and work with a few friends on their projects and dreams. There are so many things that I have not done. I have to remind myself that everything that I may wish to do may not be good to me or for me; and it also may not be good for the brand. There is enough headache in trying to be the best in all that I do right now.3 words that describe you? Son, Father, Persistant.. How can fans stay up to date with your progress? I would say check me out every Wednesday on "The Jay Everyday Show" at 7PM Eastern via www.thejayeveryday.com, on Twitter @EverydayDaBrand & Facebook: Everyday The Brand. <div *PhotosByKai
He grew up in a troubled household, but that didn't stop him from achieving success. Jermaine Smith is a creator, innovator and entrepreneur. He's a screenwriter, owns a magazine, radio show and fragrance. Mr. Smith doesn't do it all for himself...he does it for YOU. Check out my interview with the businessman as he discusses his accomplishments, future projects and why negativity encourages instead of destroys. How do you find your target customers? I look to find my target customers through my existing customers or listeners. I just merely look to bring a fresh take on a tired or crowded industry. I believe that the customer is your best business card; so I strive to give them the best product and the best experience. What are a few triumphs and struggles that you've covered on your radio show and magazine? In the two plus years of existence we have covered such stories that range from a Mother's fight for her young teenage son's freedom within' the state of Georgia as he's been wrongly incarcerated. We have interviewed dignitaries that are in the fight for the stopping of rapes, beatings, killings, poor living conditions and many other things that go on in the Congo area of Africa. I am most proud that we are a home for the Indie Artist, the Small Business Owner and the many voices that cannot get on mainstream radio because of their lack of finances or not having a story that is deemed not newsworthy. Check out the rest... www.thejayeveryday.com What words of encouragement can you give to young entrepreneurs that doubt themselves? I would first tell them that people will only take you as serious as you take yourself; and that you don't have to be great to get started- But you do have to get started to be great. How can someone be featured on your radio show or magazine? They can send me an email to everydayradio@gmail and I will gladly look over their story, material or thoughts before I do my research. Do you have a new stage play in the works? Oh yes. I have something very interesting that I am currently piecing together. It is very challenging in the sense of where I am trying to take the concept and how I wish to convey the message. Tell me about your fragrance Everyday for Women and also Everyday Platinum. "Everyday" For Women is light, clean, floral and woodsy feminine fragrance that shares a special Rose note with a distinctive Amber and other blended notes to set the sensual moment. "Everyday" For Women was birthed to give back to some "Everyday" Woman that I've encountered such as my mother, my sister, my aunts and my grandmothers. I wanted to symbolize their strength, independence, resiliency and determination that they have shown me and other family members.
