Birth of a Visionary

Hello, winners. I'm Kindle Rashod, a rap artist who writes music for goal-oriented people. I've been making music for about 20 years. I started out at the age of 11 when my friends decided to imitate a popular hip-hop group at the time, Master P and the No Limit Soldiers. I've been hooked ever since.

My Career Experiences

Fast forward 7 years later, I attended Cuyahoga Community College studying music production, music business, internet marketing, and entrepreneurship. I performed shows at various places in Ohio. In 2011, I started an online music consulting service, but it failed due to lack of sales. In 2013, I joined an A&R company called Team Mashin', working under music producer Keith Clizark and head of A&R Kenneth James. Although it was a great team, I left because the audience I wanted to cater to wasn't the same as the market that the company wanted to attract. My departure was on good terms.

I'm now in a new chapter in my life with the desire to reincarnate my original business idea: consulting. The exception here is that I learned to develop a much bigger vision, which is to offer my service to growth-minded artists in the entire creative industry, not just musicians.

What This Campaign is About

The Target Audience

There are millions of hip-hop musicians in the market: gangsta rappers, party rappers, conscience rappers, Christian rappers, nerdcore, and so forth. So how do I stand out?

My music caters to artistic workers with high ambitions, including visual artists, photographers, filmmakers, video game developers, actors, models, singers, technology innovators, bloggers, and more. My lyrics resonate with the thoughts and behaviors of creative people and their desire for success.

The Business Model

My music career is multi-faceted. I'm developing an international brand to encourage creative artists in running their business much more efficiently. I will provide music, digital content, software, and other products supporting their mental, artistic, and professional growth. My purpose is to make individuals feel optimistic about their own visions. I started this campaign with the faith to make these ideas come to pass.

What You Can Do To Help

I am establishing myself as a musician with a forward-thinking business. That's where I need your help. The end goal is to raise $24,000 by November 12. When this campaign succeeds, the money will be invested in marketing, product development, equipment/supplies, and operation costs. Click here to download a detailed expense list.

Make a donation today, even if it's only $1, and continue to give more over time. Contributing even a little bit will inspire other people to give as well. This will ensure we raise $24,000 before the deadline.

Please Consider $100

Although you are free to give whatever you can, please consider a minimum of $100. You do not have to donate a lump sum in a single transaction. You can contribute over time. This amount will help attract many more funders.

How You Will Benefit From Contributing

  • You will receive perks, as listed on this site
  • You'll be supporting a vision to help bring other artistic entrepreneurs to the forefront, thereby adding more value to our cultures.
  • You'll be reminded of the power of networking and how effective word-of-mouth can be for your own cause.
  • You may learn new promotional ideas, whether you are marketing savvy or not.
  • You prove to yourself that you like to see other people win. That makes you a winner, too.
  • You'll have fun. It will be like watching your favorite sports team with the winning score, or watching a suspense movie as the campaign gets closer to its goal.
