    098: Muyinza - From Uganda to the American Dream

    098: Muyinza - From Uganda to the American Dream

    Muyinza, APRTmedia.com, Beth Creative Group, Musician and Artist





    Born in Uganda, Muyinza was born to two self-employed business owners: a pastor and a lawyer.  As a child, he spent his summer days with his parents at their jobs and he picked up the fundamentals of business ownership.  Muyinza’s family emigrated to Ontario, Canada in search of more opportunity.  At the age of 5, he had his first taste of entrepreneurship with his paper route.  After losing his mother to cancer, Muyinza and his family relocated to Boston, Massachusetts, where he began making his music.  Surrounded by drug and gun violence in his new neighborhood, Muyinza decided to stay inside and make music.  In 2014, he made his most life-changing investment.  He moved back home to his father’s house, worked 70 hours a week for a year and was able to save $20K.  He then took that money and invested it into an e-commerce business.  That business went on to earn him $700K over the next 4 years!  The capital earned from this endeavor enabled Muyinza to make his second biggest investment yet: establishing digital marketing company Beth Creative Group.



    Here are the Self Made Strategies of Muyinza.

    On this episode you will hear Muyinza:



    * Marketing and Advertising in the Digital Space, in a New America

    * Content Creation, Optimization and Marketing in a New America

    * Efficient and cost-effective way to start and grow a business in 2020

    * The role that being black plays and has played in business relations in the United States

    * The problems and struggles faced by black entrepreneurs and business owners today

    * Programs and policies that could be implemented at companies and corporations in America
