Meet Antonio Velaz of Fuchassi Entertainment in Newport Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Antonio Velaz.

Antonio, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My story begins a little over ten years ago. What started off as admiration for a group called Fatty Koo turned into being appointment Head of their fan club which would later pave the way for other ventures. These ventures and experiences would lead me to work with some very well known clients such as: Tiffany “New York” Pollard, Grammy Winner Mya, Blac Chyna, and a few others. Every client has their personality which makes the job more challenging but making their lives easier is much more rewarding.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Establishing yourself in this industry is not easy because you have to stand out. You have to make people see what you can bring to the table. There is so much to oversee and you must always anticipate the next move, have a Plan B and be ready to spring into action no matter what. My clients appreciate that I bring a little bit of normalcy in an industry that is very demanding and chaotic. For the most part, obstacles and challenges that I have faced are usually the result of undertaking those of my clients.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Fuchassi Entertainment story. Tell us more about the business.
I have been in many roles depending on what my clients need. For example I started off as a personal assistant and have transitioned into the role of road manager, executive coordinator and currently talent manager. My duties ranges from coordinating/booking appearances to hiring personnel for my clients; I am very versatile and do what needs to be done.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I have had my share of good luck and bad luck. The important thing is not to dwell on it and look at everything that happens as a blessing in disguise and a life experience.
