What advice do you have for other entrepreneurs wanting to leverage social media for their business?

To capitalize on using social media, you must study the markets surrounding your interest or hobby to seek and exploit a money-making opportunity, establish a proof of concept, then systemize the business using a social media page as a major marketing channel. It will require studious, creative thinking to accomplish. Marketing is paramount.

Where do you hope to see your brand in the next 3-5 years?

In the next 3-5 years, I hope to see my brand as a dynamic, international entity with super profitable business ventures in entertainment, commerce, and real estate. I also want my brand to become more involved in charitable community projects, especially those that aim to help orphaned children.
