Expansion, build out and growth for our co-owned Seven Bucks Companies. Good to get some hang time in with @adage Magazine for their cover story on my co-CEO and enterprise builder @danygarciaco and myself. Just because there was no blueprint for a guy like me in Hollywood, didn’t mean it couldn’t be done. It just meant it was time to create a new blueprint. Our Seven Bucks’ never wants to just play in the game.. we want to change the way the game is played. #SevenBucksCompanies #Film #TV #Digital #Advertising ? by @robertascroft
