From IBM to Stand-up Comedy
I was recently in New York City, where I met some incredible people including Rushion McDonald.
An American entrepreneur, brand ambassador and media executive, Rushion McDonald is a two-time Emmy Award-winning Executive Producer and owner of the 3815 Media production company.
This man has worked with some of the greatest names in media but he’s also something you wouldn’t expect – a master of reinvention.
He grew up very poor in Houston Texas, but found a way to get into IBM where he worked for a few years until he decided to pursue a career in comedy. Everybody told him not to do it, but he was determined to make it in entertainment.
Now Rushion is recognised throughout the entertainment industry for his successes in producing top television shows, movies, and events. He’s worked with names such as Mo’Nique, Kevin Hart and Jamie Foxx.
If that wasn’t enough, Rushion’s other accolades include being a three-time NAACP Image Award Winner, hosting the Money Making Conversations radio show, and creating the Baker Spotlight recipe library, and Ambassador for Perfect Bake Scale.
Surviving Cancer & Aiming Higher
He’s super smart when it comes to building media personalities. From Steve Harvey to Stephen A. Smith, Rushion has helped propel other people’s careers to crazy heights.
For example, he recently got Stephen, America’s most famous sportscaster, an 8 million dollar annual contract with ESPN, making him the highest-paid talent on the network.
Rushion also has a new book out and a new message to people his age and millennials. He wants us all to aim higher and get our of our own way.
He’s an incredible guy and had some amazing stories about surviving cancer and how he’s coming back from it. I know you’re going to love this incredible episode with Rushion McDonald
