Aaron Arnold - Young Black Role Model In The Making




Aaron Arnold - someone I have befriended off the strength of his company, Music Is My Business. I kept seeing him on the net so one day I decided to research him - as a young African American person who really never looked up to someone before, he caught my attention and has been something like a role model to me. I sent him a message expressing such and really wanted to know how to be apart of his movement - we have been cool since. I have yet to be involved but just keeping up with his routine and knowing his hustle and strive has been motivating to me. He's an amazing man, who indeed ROCKS!

Recently, he was interviewed with CNN for a section called Young People Who Rock. Young People Who Rock is a weekly interview series focused on people under 30 -- from CEOs to entertainers to athletes to community and political leaders -- who are doing remarkable things. Here is a lil info about him and why he rocks so much:

No matter how old we are, no matter what stage we’re at in life, we all tend to wonder, “If money didn’t matter, what would I do?” Aaron Arnold had those thoughts. And he’s acted on them.

After Arnold graduated from college, he was fast-tracked into an executive position at a major PR firm. He had money, but he was miserable. The real answer to his nagging thoughts about his true passion was music. So shortly after he got married, Arnold took a major leap to a nonpaying (to the dismay of his wife) internship with Bad Boy Records.

He worked for free to soak up all he could as an assistant to record producer and entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs. After a year of grooming, the 29-year-old went on his own to start Music is My Business. “I wanted to change the music industry for the better,” Arnold said. He now handles budding artists, with the goal of changing the way business is done in the music industry. http://ypwr.blogs.cnn.com/2008/06/17/aaron-arnold/.


Here is a clip of his interview - I missed it when it aired online but at work ALL we do is watch CNN, so 10 minutes later I was excited to see him on TV!! :)
