Troy Carter is a well-known manager of artists like John Legend and Meghan Trainor, as well as a new guest 'shark' on Marc Cuban's TV Show Shark Tank, and the founder and CEO Atom Factory investment and talent management company in Los Angeles.
This is a new segment called The Prequel, where we get the pre-story where we talk to someone well-known about what life was like before they were successful.
In this case Troy Carter talks Philly, technology, getting kicked-out of L.A., investing in startups like Uber and Lyft, managing John Legend, hearing a hit song in the studio, the soulful connection between entrepreneurs and musicians, and much much more.
Quote from Troy:
"In life in general, there are no guarantees. Failures are a part of life. As cliche as it may sound, the way I look at it as there are no rewards without taking risks. We take a risk every time we step out the door, every single day. Life is full of risks and failures, but at the same time life is full of triumphs and happiness."
