Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeremy Wheatfall.
Jeremy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Born in Texas, my childhood was spent, dividing time living in Houston, Mcnair, and Baytown. As a kid, I was socially awkward, curious, and I was always performing for my family and friends at school. I was the kid who was not afraid of being in front of the class or answer the questions, I was an outgoing child. My mother encouraged my creativity and pushed me to always look for a way to be better than I was yesterday. I think that actually helped my interest in the military.
After graduating high school, I joined the military for eight years. It was definitely an experience that taught me how to be self-reliant, proactive, and disciplined. I took what I learned and applied it to my plan of getting into Entertainment Business, which leads me to where I am today.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road that leads to my goals has not been the smoothest, but it has been worth it. I’ve had to work a few jobs that I did not always see how they would eventually help me in the long run.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m head of marketing at FemmeCreatives, a company that works with, collaborates with and helps women entrepreneurs take the necessary next steps to grow their business, whatever that may be. Before beginning at FemmeCreatives, I did some freelance work as a creative director and assistant stylist. Freelance work forced me to think even further outside the box because I was just starting out I had no name or work to stand on.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
In the next 5-10 years, I see more women CEOs. I expect that because women have really been making awesome strides in business. They have been consistently proving that their ideas, plans, strategies, etc. are equal to if not better than their male counterparts. I’m excited for that future!
