Published

on

I recently interviewed Brad R Lambert. Brad is a producer, talent manager & an international speaker. Brad has worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Check out the conversation we had below!

1. Who is Brad Lambert in real life?

I’m a Producer, Talent Manager and INTL. Speaker in Los Angeles, CA. I work with the top Brands, Studios, Celebrities, Artists and Professionals in the Industry – Prominent collaboration partners include: Walt Disney StudiosMarvel StudiosWarner Bros. Pictures, Chris Hemsworth, Sony Pictures, The Pittsburgh Steelers, Universal PicturesGary Vaynerchuk and more. At the end of the day, I’m just a guy who is chasing my passions and attempting to live out my dreams, while adding value and assisting those around me in hopes that they find happiness and achieve their dreams too.

2. How did you start your journey in the entertainment industry?

Prior to moving to Los Angeles, I worked in the Sports Industry for almost 10 years while I was on the East Coast. When I moved to Los Angeles 5 years ago, I started out working with Robert Downey Jr. and his incredible team. After that, I spent the next 2 years managing digital marketing campaigns for Warner Bros. for their TV, Film & Catalog titles. Since then, I’ve been working for myself and trying to capitalize on the many opportunities that this industry provides. 

3. How did you land clients like Marvel, WB etc?

In business and in life, it’s all about providing value. Through my time out here in Los Angeles, I’ve built many relationships with people in the industry which leads you to many doors for potential opportunities. Once you’re at the door, it’s your job to provide the necessary value to open the door and acquire the opportunity. I was able to bring the necessary value and I was thorough and reliable in my execution, which allows me to come back and work with them further on future projects. Last year was special because I was able to work with Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios on the campaign for “Avengers: Endgame” and again with Marvel Studios with Sony Pictures on the campaign for “Spider-Man: Far From Home”. 

If you’re young in the industry, look for “openings” to add value. If you see a company, brand, celebrity etc. who is in need of something (PR, Marketing, Content, etc.), bring that value to the table and watch how many doors open for you.

EDITOR’S NOTE :- BRAD R LAMBERT RECENTLY SURPRISED A 3 TIMES CANCER SURVIVOR AND A HUGE SPIDER-MAN FAN BY TAKING MATEO COKA TO THE PREMIERE OF SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME. CHECK OUT THE VIDEO OF HIM SURPRISING MATEO HERE.

4. Could you tell us more about how you took Mateo to the Spider-Man Far From Home premier?

BRAD R LAMBERT- I spoke at NC State University almost 2 years ago; While I was there a student connected me to her friend Mateo Coka, a 21 year old 3x cancer survivor (He fought cancer 3x in the first 10 years of his life) and the biggest Spider-Man fan I’ve ever met. I found out when hearing his story that Spider-Man helped get him through the darkest days of his life; Those stories, TV shows, films and characters brought him happiness and peace of mind when he needed it the most. 

(Not sure if this is relevant to the “experience” but it is part of the story)

We became friends and I essentially became a mentor for him and his career moving forward. I assisted in getting him an internship with Robert Downey Jr. and his production company that next summer, which meant he had to move to Los Angeles for a few months! He had his very own “Stark Internship”. 🙂 

With him in Los Angeles for the summer, the timing could not have been more perfect for what happened next. I was working with Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios on the marketing campaign for the release of “Spider-Man: Far From Home”. Knowing Mateo was a massive fan, I was able to acquire an extra ticket to the World Premiere to take him. 

I wanted this to be a special “memorable” experience for him, so I was little creative in my way of telling him that he was going. I told him that Sony Pictures wanted me to do a reaction video to some exclusive, never-before-seen footage of “Spider-Man: Far From Home”. Knowing he was a big fan, I asked Sony Pictures if he could join, they said yes. He was absolutely thrilled with the opportunity to potentially see seconds of new footage for the upcoming film. I rented out a small private theater room to view the “exclusive” footage, but in reality, none of this was real…it was just a cover story to reveal the fact that he was going to go to the World Premiere. 

The “exclusive” trailer began, and about 15-20 seconds in, it glitched out and the footage disappeared, as if the video was corrupt or broken. It then smashed-cut to a beautiful sky and birds chirping, panning down to me walking out of a building. I questioned what he was doing and that we didn’t “have time for this”, because he had to go back to his apartment to change, because we were going to the World Premiere that night. The reaction that followed was absolutely priceless, and the pure joy and emotion that was displayed was so heartwarming and wholesome. Mateo was crying, screaming and just completely overwhelmed. Later he revealed to me that it was the best night of his life. 

At the end of the day, we all need to be kind to one another. If you have the opportunity to do something nice for somebody else, just do it. You just may change a life…

5. What have you learned working in the industry, that can benefit someone who is just starting out?

You’re not “too big” for any job or opportunity. Starting out, your goal should be to provide as much value as possible, big or small, as often as you can. That will help you build relationships and your reputation, while learning and gaining experience in multiple areas. At the end of the day, if you’re always providing value and you’re reliable…you will always get the call.

6. Do you think an educational qualification is necessary to succeed in life? (Particularly in this industry)

I think gaining a degree is important, but it’s not for everyone. I never want to discourage entrepreneurship, so you have to do what’s best for you. If you’re able to get into the industry quicker (prior to graduating), that experience is so incredibly valuable and beyond anything a normal “education” could provide. I’m speaking from experience, as I took a year off from school to work full-time for a marketing agency and manage major clients all over the country. So to answer your question I think experience and talent is far more necessary than a degree, but if that’s the path you choose it is not a poor decision. 

7. Is there something you’d like to say to our readers?

Lead with kindness, provide whatever value you can in as many situations as you can, build genuine relationships with others and IF you can do something nice for somebody else, do it. Not everything always has to be a transaction.

will always be a very big part of my life.

I wanted to start something of my own and the best industry was tech because of my immense
passion. Now at first I tried writing blogs, making websites and all but that wasn’t for me. So one

Yes. I strongly believe that education plays a big part in your life. A well educated person will always have a lot of career options and paths. Education shapes a person in an excellent way. Also, going to college is an incredible experience. The people you meet, new things you learn, friendships that you make, etc. make it all worth it.

Learn How Innovative Barber Jacob Joseph Is Dominating The Haircut Industry!

Published

on

Jacob Joseph


Jacob Joseph is a Magna Cum Laude Alumni with a degree in Accounting who followed his dreams of becoming a barber. In pursuit of his dreams, Jacob attended an apprenticeship program with “Barber Club” and that was when things changed for the better. 

Today, he is a licensed barber and he has achieved unprecedented success with his Instagram platform. Jacob is one of the only few barbers in the industry who has a follower base of over 100,000 on Instagram. 

In this article, we will discuss the passion behind Jacob’s dreams; the success he attained, and some of the steps he took to ensure that he overcame challenges thrown at him. 


Overcoming Challenges 

Like many business owners, Jacob also had a fair share of challenges. Challenges are not uncommon with business owners and businesses, without them, these individuals and they’re businesses won’t grow.  

Pursuing his dream of becoming a barber proved to be a roadblock to him. In order to overcome these challenges, Jacob surrounded himself with people who were successful. These people, their actions, and habits motivated Jacob to become the man he is today.

“My mentors taught me that the best way to deal with challenges as an entrepreneur is by taking them head-on as they come.” – Jacob Shares


Outstanding skills 

Jacob Joseph believes that his determination helped his success. “I always put my faith and trust in God. He has always blessed me in my life and I continue to give gratitude and thanks to Him”. He said.  

Jacob also added that persistence and discipline are important to achieve your goal.


Drawing Inspiration & Upholding Healthy Practices

Jacob reveals that he has two main drivers which push me to succeed. 

The first would be his parents who were immigrants from the middle east and started a whole new life in this country.  As teenagers, they were able to build up a successful hair salon from scratch to provide for their family. 

Their hard work and tenacity are what pushes him to become as successful as he possibly can in order to give his family and himself the financial freedom that they want. 

Another inspiration that pushes him to be at the top of his game is the mindset of not settling. He has made it a statue not to be another barber in the game. Jacob wants to set a standard in my industry. Someone that other barbers can look up to, someone his colleagues can depend on. “I don’t like to be average. I know I have more to offer.” -Jacob says.

God has blessed us and given all of us special skills and talents to show the world! I want to make sure that I can give back to Him!”

Jacob further told us that in order to uphold healthy practices you have to hold yourself accountable for every action you take.  Burnouts are inevitable for human beings. The best way to deal with burnouts is to take as much rest as possible in order to recharge. 


Significant Achievements 

Prior to graduating from college, Jacob developed a passion for cutting hair and aspired to achieve his goal. Today, Jacob is a licensed barber and in less than a year he has grown his Instagram account from less than a thousand followers to more than 100k followers where he publicly displays his skills and has helped him build a solid digital footprint. 

This growth has opened doors to many sponsorships with different companies including Gammaplusna. 


Words of Advice 

Here are some words of advice from Jacob himself for people striving to attain success in any field;

“Words of advice I can give is that you are your biggest advocate or enemy. 

Your mindset will dictate your future. Make your thoughts work in your favor. 

Keeping a positive outlook in the face of adversity is difficult, but the results of that positive mindset will take you where you want to go in life. 

Don’t dwell on the setbacks, plan for the triumphs. I am no better than you or the next person. 

I only compete with myself and make sure that I grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. 

Once you stop worrying and caring about others is when you will be able to do whatever you love, which will lead you to live the life of your dreams!”

Justin Tse On Becoming A Successful Entrepreneur & Content Creator

Published

on

By

justin tse

Justin Tse is a massively successful Tech Content Creator, Entrepreneur & Podcaster. He makes quality tech & lifestyle videos on YouTube and has achieved over 560k+ subscribers. He co-owns a clothing company called Dangerfield with Alexx Davies & has a podcast called FEATURE where he talks about Business, Tech, Lifestyle, Travel, and gets into conversations with other creators! Justin was kind enough to take time out of his schedule to talk to us about his journey! Read on-

1. Who is Justin Tse in real life?

I don’t know.  Almost everything I do is some form of work.  Between planning, filming, and editing videos for my channel, building up the Feature podcast, or working on the clothing company I co-own,  Dangerfield… I stay pretty busy.

justin tse feature podcast

2. What sparked your love for Entrepreneurship and Filmmaking?

When I was a kid I wanted to find a way to make money.  I loved selling stuff, and when I tried to sell one device I learned more about YouTube and its possible revenue streams.  After learning more about tech, I decided to try and make some videos.  Over time, I began improving my filming and diversified the style of videos I upload.  Such as the cinematic travel videos and more.  The skills and equipment could also be seen as a competitive advantage.

3. What are your key takeaways running a successful Tech YouTube channel? (JUSTIN TSE)

My takeaways are that running a YouTube channel is a lot more work than people think.  For me, it’s a media company, and to do this full time, it requires a full commitment and adaptation of lifestyle to maintain and grow a channel.  Especially when you factor in traveling in a normal year, and making content it becomes difficult to manage.  Therefore, staying organized and using a schedule is extremely important.  A YouTube channel is a small business, for the first 9 years I did all the filming, editing, emailing, negotiating, selling, and accounting. 

4. You recently co-founded and launched “Dangerfield”, what problems did you face before launching it? 

Some issues I faced were that the co-owner and I sometimes weren’t in complete agreement over aspects that are important to a brand’s identity.  For example, choosing the style and theme should not be rushed, it took time to decide.  In addition to that, picking the target audience and the content strategy to go along with it is important and we felt we had to be confident in our strategy prior to launch.

5. What was your inspiration behind starting the “Feature” podcast & what do you wish to achieve as a Podcaster & content creator?

The podcast is a project I have always wanted to start.  The free-flowing unscripted conversation is something I am not usually able to do on my YouTube channel so this felt like a good platform to post.  I’m able to naturally discuss subjects I enjoy talking about, which includes F1, business, travel, and more.  Previously, starting new projects has been tough to implement especially because they likely are not profitable to start, but with the quarantine that had occurred for so long, I figured it’d be a good time to start.  Especially since I have thought about it for a long time now.  I had no expectations for it and its primarily for fun.  Meanwhile, my personal channel has expectations and deliverables that must be reached.  As a content creator, I want to create a sustainable, growing business that can last for years to come, and in the future, I’d like to have the resources to expand into other industries I’m passionate about while using the tools and resources I have acquired over my time.

6. Do you think an educational qualification is necessary to succeed in life? 

No, I don’t feel its necessary to always get post-secondary education to succeed.  Although it can be very helpful and lead to great success, it’s not always needed.  I say this because if someone feels they already know what they’d like to do in life, and it’s something they feel they already have the resources continuing in school doesn’t always make sense for that individual.  I only dropped out because I had a steady income and I knew I could make a career out of YouTube for a while.  I’m not an advocate for people sitting around hoping for success, you have to make it happen for yourself.

justin tse

7. What would you say to someone who is just starting out?

Be prepared to give up everything if you are truly dedicated and have aspirations to grow constantly turning YouTube into a full-time job.  Also start young, it often gives you more flexibility to take risks and learn from mistakes with little consequences.  Use the resources you have available, and don’t feel the need to have the best equipment to succeed.  The process of saving up for your first camera alone will teach you a lot. 

8. Is there something you’d like to say to our readers?

Don’t give up, if you’re willing to put every second you have to work on something, then you probably picked the right thing.
