How the Navy taught Antonia Stephenson II how to run a business

Published

on

Meet Antonia Stephenson II, a Raleigh, North Carolina native who just finished his enlistment with the United States Navy, where he served 8 total years as an active duty servicemember.

Stephenson openly admits that he didn’t join the Navy to learn how to run a business but he’s glad it happened the way it did. He laughs about it because he says he “tricked” himself into thinking his responsibility as a supervisor and the people he supervised was his personal “little business”. He says, “On Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, we’re all looking for something to feel warm and fuzzy about but for me, I needed to feel important, I needed to feel like what I was doing was making a positive impact or helping contribute to a common goal”. He continues by saying, “Once I changed my perspective on what I was doing and looked at my division as a business, it reflected in my performance. I was in charge of a lot people and I knew if I could get them to buy into me as a leader than we could run a smooth, operational business”.

One key thing that contributed to his early success in the military was his chain of command. He said without the leadership and wisdom of Senior Chief Petty Officer James Stafford, Chief Petty Officer Derrick Pollard, and First-Class Petty Officer James Westbrook, he admits he doesn’t know what direction his career would have gone without those three leading him.

As a junior sailor, he started learning the importance of time management, being pro-active, and taking initiative. Those skills then translated quite well into him running his own company. Stephenson runs a Real Estate Investment Firm where he has 1 business partner, Amberle Farthing, who’s a Real Estate Investor and Realtor in the State of Virginia. Together they have 3 employees that help run their day to day operations. Stephenson admits, “I learned about the importance of step by step instructions and system from the Navy. Any time there was an action that needed to be taken there was a Standard Operating Procedure on what to do.” The thing Stephenson says he struggled with the most during his 8-year career with the Navy, was delegation. “I just always felt like no one could do it better than me or they wouldn’t do it the way I wanted it to be done so instead of using my rank, I’d go do it myself for peace of mind” But he says, “that’s not the long game in business”, so he soon got over that and started focusing on running the business by improving systems and operations and giving clear instructions to his team as the leader.

As Mr. Stephenson is only a few months removed from his military career, be on the lookout for what he plans to do for his military brothers and sisters.

ARSHBRO-THE GREAT AND DEDICATED MUSICIAN OF THIS ERA

Published

on

Arshbro is a multi-talented artist, lyricist, record producer, father, and all-around legend. Music has always been a major part of his life, but he didn’t necessarily get into it until he moved in with a musician friend who was also just getting into producing and mixing in 2019. Opportunities tended to present themselves to him, and he was finally able to tap into his creative side and let it shine. In every way, Arshbro’s music is a departure from the norm. He doesn’t categorize himself in any one particular genre, although he excels in almost everything he does. What the listeners are most pleased with is how soon he entered the scene and made sure he made an impression. He attempts to get involved in the hip-hop and afrobeat scenes. He decided to launch 211 Records, his record label. He believed that because he perceived himself as a brand, extending that brand would inevitably unlock the door to a new set of possibilities and opportunities. 

He has invested time and effort into learning how to produce, mix, and master music. So much so that he engineered the majority of his upcoming album’s sound. He knows that these are the abilities and qualities that will propel his organization to inconceivable heights of success.

He has set an example for the new generation that you can do anything in a very short time if you are dedicated to working. Pull Up is his first-ever soundtrack, which sets the public on fire. After this, he started working hard and releasing his new songs, which are “Love,” “Don’t Leave,” “Rise,” and “Like This.” you can easily stream all of his songs on Apple Music, Spotify and all other platforms. In his childhood, he also got an Academic Excellence award from the school as the best student. After that, he feels that he is undefeatable, and we think this is the main reason for his success today. He has been featured in numerous magazines and has appeared on international television. One of the highlights was seeing HipTV, an international TV network located in Nigeria, play his music video. He has come a long way in just a few years, and he credits his success to his hard work and perseverance.

His next approach will be to release his EP, which will convey the story of a man trying to make it in a capitalist world with more limitations than possibilities. With his remarkable organic growth since releasing his first single, Arshbro is ahead of his time and might very well be one of Dallas’ best artists, but only time will tell. His new soundtrack was released on May 13th, and it is also available in all stores and streaming platforms. You can listen to his latest soundtrack on spotify.

Arshbro is an inspiration for newcomers showing that you can do anything if you have the courage and dedication for your work. He is also an inspiration for those who come before him because of how many struggles and obstacles he has gone through in his career, but he still doesn’t lose courage and gives his best and gets appreciation and love from the audience.

You can follow this amazing artist and his record label on these social media platforms using these handles to know about his new music albums.
