Hidden Gems: Meet Agent Erik of REVLI Management Group

Today we’d like to introduce you to Agent Erik.

Hi Agent Erik, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I went to college for marketing/branding because I knew that in the coming future people wouldn’t be working for one company for 20-40 years like our parents and their parents did due to technology. It will come a time when people would have to rely on their passion and skills to make money with their own business or services and within that they would need help with branding, marketing, and overall management. Once I left college, I still was too afraid to start my own company, so I started working for a marketing firm here in Philadelphia. I gave them my all for two years straight. One day after I left work, I was very depressed and unhappy with working for the company. I felt like is this life? Doing the same thing over and over and over again at work just didn’t sit right with me nor did it bring me inner peace. I felt lost and unhappy. One week later, I was called into the office and was told that they were going to lay me off due to budget cuts. A part of me was relieved, but another part of me was upset that I gave all of my time and energy into a company that can fire me at will.

For one whole year, I applied and applied for jobs in my field but was meet with no opportunities. Within that year, my great mother who was one of the main women that raised died. Her death broke me down in every way possible. After one year and seven days, I was sitting on my couch thinking like I have to turn all of this pain into fuel to create my own opportunities. Thats why I started REVLI Management Group LLC. I wanted to not only help creatives entrepreneurs with branding, marketing, and management but also be there to support their passion mentally. It heals my soul to help different people who may have an idea or vision but don’t know how to turn it into a real money-making business. In that one year and seven days, it was no one there to save me, I was forced to create my own opportunities. So when I work with other small businesses, entertainers, and more I relate with them in many ways because I was once in need of support so I became what I needed.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
My parents are old school so they wasn’t very supportive of a digital business. My mother is death so I had to learn and understand the deaf world and hearing world while learning how to find myself as a black man in America.
