It all started when...
C.E.O. Business was founded in Little Rock, AR, in the summer of 2011 by Pharaoh. The acronym "C.E.O." served as an "inner ego" (motivational/inspirational tool) for a young Pharaoh who was so confident in himself and so ambitious that he did not put anyone above him. Pharaoh suffered many heartaches and disappointments in life. Although, life was not always as enjoyable and as pleasant as Pharaoh would have hoped for, Pharaoh overcame every obstacle that awaited him. Pharaoh used every failed moment that he encountered, to mastermind plans, granting him the opportunity to conquer any goal(s) that he had originally set for himself.
Growing up, Pharaoh highly admired some of the world's Greatest men such as Michael Jackson, Barry Gordy, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Master P., Jermaine Dupree and many more. Pharaoh always felt that he was destined to be great and that one day he would be mentioned with that list of names. Growing up in a poverty stricken community and later moving to a upper class environment (through the hard work of his parents), Pharaoh developed the urge to give back not only his community but to the world in all that he did.
Although there were positive influences on Pharoah's life, Pharaoh was also inspired by the stories of some of the world's most notorious gangsters. Mike D. was most influenced by the drive, ambition, determination, and intelligence of the works of Al Capone, Frank Lucas, Pablo Escobar, Joaquin "El Chapo Guzman, and Terry "Big Meech" Flenory. While Pharaoh did not agree with some of the lifestyle and life choices these men made, Pharaoh could not resist the fact that each of these men were intelligent and self-driven.
Pharaoh set out to use each of these individual influences to mastermind his own plan in "Taking Over the World", legally and within the laws of the land. Pharaoh, also vowed to develop his own brand and be a positive role model, motivation and inspiration to all people of the world, regardless of any classification.
Thus, C.E.O. Business was born. Conquering Every Opportunity "C.E.O." Business was created to serve as a "Global Empire". This empire was designed to be significant, powerful and successful in every aspect of Production and Entertainment.
