Dale Carnegie once said: â€œThe person who has technical knowledge plus the ability to express ideas, to assume leadership, and to arouse enthusiasm among people -- that person is headed for higher earning power.â€?Â Who would have thought that working in the fast-paced entertainment industry for over 8 years would lead to a personal transformation and purpose to encourage, motivate, and empower others?
Ms. Woodbine has always had the determination and â€œdriveâ€? of an entrepreneur at a young age. She has always wanted to work for herself. At 14 years old, she started a company called â€œGeeâ€™s Business Services;â€? which specialized in making business cards, logos, flyers, menus, and invitations. She charged $35.00, and when she received her first $35.00, she gained the confidence to move forward.
At age 17, while in high school, she transcribed report papers for high school and college students, friends, and family. When she graduated from high school, she realized that she had a passion for helping people improve their lives through written material.
In college, she interned at Hot 97 radio station and started hanging out with friends at the studio. She always had a natural instinct for business. Ms. Woodbine would inquire about how they were getting paid, write their bios and press releases, copyright their music, and give advice on how to present their business. The next thing she knew, she gained the title as â€œmanager,â€? because of her connections within the entertainment industry.
