Atlanta, GA, February—RMG What do you get when you move a socialite, a media mogul and a Jackie-Of-All-
The series chronicles the rising stars as they use their “D” game to bring about their soon to be undeniable “A” game. The three use principles learned from the hard, unforgiving streets of Detroit City to navigate through Atlanta’s southernplayalistic persona—and do so with all the flair and over-the-topness of Detroit royalty.
Introducing, Sharonda Taylor—mother, motivator, moneymaker. A no nonsense reformed “hot” girl, Sharonda has managed to turn street smarts into business acumen, seemingly over night. Even though she’s made her mark in the Atlanta housing industry, pocketed her first legal million in under two years and founded a female-focused non-profit organization, the road has been far from easy for Ms. Taylor. But by using faith, gumption and sheer determination, she eventually over came the adversities that often lend themselves to single parenthood, tragedy and loss.
With knowledge gained from moving & shaking in Detroit’s gritty underbelly in tow, she packed up her worldly possessions and headed straight for an upscale existence in a southern Metropolis. That was 10 years ago. Triumphantly, Sharonda has emerged as an amazing force to be reckoned with, who goes about life in Atlanta on a mission to set the best possible example for her son who is the sole motivating force behind her unstoppable drive.
Dave Bishop, founder and CEO of Reignfall Media Group, soon followed suit. He’s taken his knack for creating stellar events, legendary happenings and incredibly classic affairs to the A Town where Playa’s Balls will morph into all out gala’s after being re-worked by the likes of him.
And then there’s Fauna Burks, known simply as FAUNA. She’s no ordinary stay-at-home mom. She’s a renaissance woman raising four children who redefines the term Domestic Goddess, effortlessly. This urban American socialite has managed to mix work and play in such a way that she’s become locally famous for it. FAUNA, an ultra successful Real Estate investor, party promoter and Detroit “IT” girl at heart, is taking the south by storm with her Motor City muchness.
“Being from Detroit gives each of us this extra special thing, that I am convinced is the catalyst for much of our success, “ says Bishop, “we’re players in a game that is not designed for us to win, but somehow, we do. We do because of what Detroit taught us, what it gave to us to carry for the rest of our lives—prime hustle.”
“Dirtee Money”, set to air nationally 2012 on a major network, is a true Rags To Riches, Riches To Rags then back again, success story. It tells the real life tale of three self employed, self made extreme go-getters who find that everyday is a new hustle and each day brings a new challenge, especially in Atlanta.
