What’s Helped Gresham Become A Success?
Persistence, Perseverance, Grit, Determination
Gresh started out in elementary school as an entrepreneur. On the playground you could find him selling necklaces, potato chips and candy. For his family he produced a monthly newsletter. I don’t know about you, but I would rather be on the playground selling jewelry than creating a family newsletter.
He started his business Blue 16 Media after getting laid off from a full-time position. Before he made the decision to start that particular business he joined a networking of business owners. Gresh found he had developed the skills and services needed to open Blue 16 Media. Two of the skills were networking and relationship building. Blue 16 Media provides digital marketing solutions (web design & SEO) for businesses and organizations.
Blue 16 Media powers CB Nation. This is where Gresh and his team get to work with CEOs, entrepreneurs and business owners to increase their visibility. Some of the resources provided are CEO Blog Nation, I AM CEO PODCAST, and CBNation TV. (CEO Blog Nation has exceptional tips and tricks from entrepreneurs on subjects from motivation to leadership.)
He is the author of Lil’s Bessie Starts a Business: How One Girl Started a Business and You Can Too! While it may look like a children’s book it is definitely for entrepreneurs and business owners.
Gresham is proud a graduate of Howard University & Georgetown University.
Words Of Wisdom From Gresham “The biggest thing you can learn and understand is that the most successful people failed—a lot.”
When asked what he tells aspiring entrepreneurs if they are trying to decide what to do, Gresham’s advice is “Just Do It”
