DJ used the success of his web design company to start several additional subsidiary brands including: Duvi Media – which provided high end fashion wear, Trio Atlantic Management – an artist management firm, Music Hype Online – a digital platform for new artist, Wimberly Interactive – web hosting service, and Ikonic Dance Studio. DJ and his companies have been featured in numerous publications and on several media outlets including CNN. As accomplished as he is, he’s poised for even greater business success in the future.
By any measure, Wimberly Media Group has been wildly successful. But running my businesses has never been easy. I’ve spoken about the past challenges we faced as a company – how we became the victim of our own success. As the leader of my organization I had to step up and own our shortcomings. I had to take full responsibility. And I did. But don’t be deceived, running a business is not for the faint of heart. It comes with a heavy responsibility. While business owners gets to reap all of the rewards, they also have to carry all of the burden.
Who do you look up to in the world of business? And why? Do I have to pick just one [laughs]? My top three are Jay-Z, P Diddy, and of course Oprah. All three of them share so many of the same traits and qualities. They know what it means to be resilient – they’ve been in the game for so long. Additionally, they all do an excellent job of diversifying their business interests. They constantly look for ways to grow and expand their respective empires. The name of the game is to always evolve – know where the next business opportunity is going to come from.
In addition to rebranding his existing companies, plans are already in the works for several newventures including a real estate firm, transportation company, an online radio streaming service, restaurants, and a financial services company. And that’s just for starters! DJ Wimberly is living proof that with a clear vision, hard work, and dedication, anything is possible. See additional info on Dennis Wimberly Atanta.
It’s been an extraordinary journey. But no new year’s resolution is complete without recognizing and taking responsibility for past mistakes. Mistakes that resulted in me voluntarily shutting down my company. The truth is – despite our many successes – we didn’t always get it right. In spite of all of our accomplishments, I have to also acknowledge where we got it wrong. Looking back, I now understand that I simply wasn’t prepared for the phenomenal growth the company experienced. I didn’t setup the proper organizational infrastructure to handle the multitude of projects we were receiving on a regular basis. And, as tough as it is to admit, I wasn’t always the best leader.
