Have you ever had a dream that you thought about, and with hard work started to see it manifest?
Well, when it comes to Florida A&M University graduate J’Quan Bass, he can show you what hard work and consistency can bring you.
Founder and CEO of Tallahassee-based No Leisure Marketing has launched a company that began with a dream.
He has been one of the faces of promotion in Tallahassee since 2013, which is the year in which he began his college journey on “The Hill.”
Bass was born in the U.S. Virgin Islands and raised in Miami. He is a well known individual when it comes to South Florida and surrounding areas because of his determination to network. He started promotion when a close friend from Miami introduced him to DJ LooseKid, and LooseKid gave him a task to sell tickets. He sold all the tickets within an hour.
Besides being a promoter he also has his bachelor’s in criminal justice and is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity Inc. He is working on obtaining his master’s from Florida State University in Integrated Marketing and Communications.
Outside of promoting he is eager to engage in community service. He says while in undergrad and being a part of Kappa Alpha Psi it humbled him to help others and see the smiles on people’s faces.
Bass has been around a plethora of promotion groups such as NoCrowdcontrol, CrossPromo, DreamxTeam and many more. He says being around so much experience definitely has taught him the ropes.
“Get up because it’s time to work, I’m in school, work a job, and manage No Leisure. There’s no time off if you want to make dreams into reality,” Bass said.
While Bass may be known for his strategic promoting he also says that he finds it fulfilling to help others get to where they need to be. No Leisure marketing is also meant to help get people’s brands and talents noticed. He has made great connections while he was in undergrad and plans to only connect stronger in the future.
Co-founder and FAMU graduate student Ronald Mitial is fast to co-sign No Leisure Marketing group.
“No Leisure Marketing is Tallahassee’s newest and most versatile marketing team. We focus on grown and sexy events but we also like to have fun while working expeditiously,” Mitial said.
