From A Monroeville, Alabama Dreamer To ATLWOOD® Founder & Owner: Meet Scotty Scott!
Success Comes Overtime Not Overnight! "I Desire 2 Inspire"~SS~
Giving new meaning to the term "brandpreneur,"
"I feel that ATLWOOD is more than just a brand, it's a lifestyle," Scott explains. "People from all over the world come to Atlanta inspired to chase their dreams. Superstars are created here. Anyone who works hard and has that passion to excel can go from being homeless living in their car to being worth over $400 million . . . just ask Tyler Perry!
"The idea for ATLWOOD was sparked as I watched Atlanta evolve from 'The Motown of the South' during my days with LaFace Records, the Jack the Rapper Convention, ASCAP, Sesac and BMI to 'HotLanta,' riding the wave of the immense popularity of superstars such as Ted Turner (TBS/TNT Networks founder) Dale Murphy (Atlanta Braves), Dominique Wilkins (Atlanta Hawks) and Deion Sanders (Atlanta Falcons).
"So it was only natural that Atlanta be given its due, especially for the fact that since 2012 the Atlanta film industry has grossed over $10 billion via reality shows, movies, game shows, dramatic series, sitcoms and other entertainment vehicles."
The ATLWOOD logo graces apparel items from snapback hats and t-shirts for adults and kids to an array of styles including high-end bling gear, high-end snakeskin and leather gear, fitness gear and business casual. As CEO/Brand Ambassador, Scott strategically leverages his business/entertainment relationships cultivated over the last 20 years by advising his inspiring newbies and even his peers on how to market, focus, and elevate their brand to that next level.
Scott, an Alabama A&M University alum, hails from Monroeville, the "Literary Capital of Alabama," a city noted for gifting the world with such lauded citizens as Marva Collins, the pioneering African-American educator; Cynthia Tucker, syndicated columnist and winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary; Harper Lee, author of "To Kill a Mockingbird"
Those small-town roots, where people took care of one another, still live in Scotty and, in fact, inform his business and charitable endeavors. A committed volunteer in the Atlanta community, he selflessly gives his time to such organizations as the many Cancer Awareness Foundations, American Cancer Society, Lukemia & Lymphoma Society, American Heart Association, the National Juvenile Diabetes Association, Homeless Foundations and the Bernie Marcus Annual Autism Walk/Bernie Marcus Foundation, among others.
Asked what his vision is for his future and that of his beloved adopted city, Mr. Scott didn't hesitate: "ATLWOOD Films, ATLWOOD Radio, ATLWOOD Nightclubs, ATLWOOD Electronics, ATLWOOD Fitness & Nutrition, ATLWOOD Casino & Resorts . . . I see myself becoming the world's next mogul!"
