Usually family businesses are the toughest forms of businesses to conduct because there are so many cases when the line between business and family becomes blurred. This blurred line usually leads to miscommunication and misunderstanding and ultimately leads to stagnancy in the business or ruined relationships. Atlanta’s familial trio defy the odds by being related while being able to successfully work so closely together. For ten years, these three talented artist have been on the American hip hop radar and have not in one interview or source hinted that things for them as a group were ever coming to an end. A decade of dedication and construction of their musical empire has been invested. So many of us have to wonder HOW on earth do they accomplish such an arduous feat?

Commitment and Trust: No Migo gets left behind!

First and for most, they never throw each other under the bus. They understand the idea that they are only as strong as their weakest link. When asked “What do y’all do when one of y’all is late?” Quavo astoundingly responds with “We pull up when we pull up and then we get to work.” Often the Migos are asked questions that are geared toward separating the trio. However, they consistently deflect those types of questions and show accountability essentially as a whole. Offset says “Everybody poppin’, there ain’t no weak link.” As seen in in the interview between the Migos and Joe Budden, they also collectively move as one unit. In other words, when one is ready to “square up” they all are. The group has this unwavering understanding that family comes first and they place a trust in the shared brotherhood.


Creative Freedom and Support

From the words of Offset, they keep the environment light, happy and fun. By doing this they create an environment that is more relaxed and unstressed. This type of environment creates more enjoyable music and vibe for their excited listeners. When any place of business has a supportive environment, it makes the employee more likely to produce a better quality of work as the product or service often reflects how one feels. This also promotes creative freedom. Being able to share your ideas with your team members and to feel that your opinion is being considered seriously is a major component of being a useful team member. Being able to accept that not everyone is going to always agree is also a key part of a successful team effort.


They also never forget where they came from. They acknowledge that they started from the bottom and that they had to grind, in the words of Offset, “straight from the mud as one” to prove those inevitable naysayers wrong. Through it all, they’ve consistently had each other’s’ best interest at heart.

Communication and Versatility

Last but certainly not least, setting a compelling goal and upholding effective communication are key parts of any type long lasting relationship. Ensuring that each member is on the same page takes precedence when it comes to the group. They acknowledge that they all have a common group goal and that they have their own separate projects as well. The one thing they all say is that they all support each other’s separate ventures just as much as they support the group venture. They acknowledge the importance of being able to be versatile and that is why they encourage each other to branch off and work with other artist separately. A large part of picking who they will work with in the music industry is chemistry. Quavo says “I wouldn’t do no project with nobody I don’t got good chemistry with or rock with.” Essentially, because they move as one unit an extension for one is an extension for all.


They consistently keep an easy-going relationship between each other and an open-flow method of communication. Their laid-back personalities support this type of communication and this is undoubtedly why they have the uncanny successful relationship that they share today. The trio admits that they are constantly growing and learning new approaches to their work. But above all things that they experience and hold dear, their loyalty to each other is what is most important to them. Keeping in mind that your team members are also wanting to succeed and that they have your best interest in mind will lead to success. This understanding of wanting mutual success is best expressed in the words of Quavo “We just a real family. We came in the door together. Everything loyal.”

Entrepreneur Tips From Beyonce

Entrepreneur By Nature

When someone mentions the name Beyonce, the first idea to click on your mind is music. She is a successful musician, and unlike what you may know, she is also a self-made entrepreneur. One outstanding feature about her is that her success is not just a result of her popularity in the music industry. She has an excellent approach to business and has, over time, been able to build an empire for herself. For many people in business, below are some of the entrepreneurial tips from Beyonce, you can learn.

Be Authentic.

Because you want to start up something good for yourself in business, ensure it is unique and outstanding. Create a brand that will make people feel your presence just by mentioning the brand name. Put your stamp on it and do not allow people to benefit under your glory without approval.

Be a Team Player.

Since you cannot do everything alone, create a team of people who share the same vision as you. Build and encourage them to help you execute all your plans. Be hardworking and go through all phases of business with your team rather than just delegating.

Create Interpersonal Relationships With Customers.

Most customers will come to you expecting to have a personal touch of your brand. However, if you rely on outsourcing agencies to communicate on your behalf, your customers will eventually leave. Create a platform to interact with clients on a personal note.

Prepare To Make Painful Decisions.

As an entrepreneur, be ready to make decisions that will affect you personally but mainly focus on the bigger picture. Beyonce fired her dad because she saw it as the best thing for her career. It was a difficult decision but the right thing to do.

In the initial stages of her musical career, she was in a group. She decided to spread her wings, and at the moment, she is soaring high. The above mentioned entrepreneurial tips from Beyonce will help you build a brand for yourself if only you set goals to guide you.

Take Action.

One thing that I have learned from surviving cancer is that I had to make a conscious decision to start. Most people, when they get diagnosed and when the condition worsens, they are unable to go to work. This then leads them to a financial rut, with no money for utilities, to pay off their mortgages and loans. It is at this moment that they decide to take action. The thing with Cancer is that it makes you stronger, and you are pushed harder to make your dreams work. The motivation is inevitable, and with passion, you will be able to get rid of the fears at the back of your mind.

To be a successful entrepreneur, you need to take risks. Believe in yourself and what you are offering. Cancer is transformational; it will help you deal with your day to day issues and come out stronger in the end.

Seek Advice.

Another essential thing that I had to do was to seek advice from experts and other people that had gone through what I was going through. I spoke with other cancer survivors to see the things that they did to beat cancer.

To become a great entrepreneur you will also need to seek advice from experts and the entreprenurs that have already achieved what you are looking to achieve. Do not go in blindly, as your business may suffer. Find a mentor, you will be surprised they will be more than ready to offer you all the advice that you need.

Remember, you are not alone on this journey; other people are going through what you are undergoing. Don’t be afraid to reach out.

I did not allow my life to a stop due to a cancer diagnosis and neither should you allow any challenge you are facing to stop you from achieving your dreams. You can beat whatever it is you are going through and come out stronger than before!
