I Just Wanted To Make It:
Asahn Guyton, an American entrepreneur, real estate investor, multi business owner and now an author has revealed his life’s journey in a book he’s set to present to the public anytime soon.
In the book, Guyton, who is the Chief Executive Officer of South Park Management LLC highlighted how he started his journey in the world of entertainment and how fate changed the plot, nonetheless, making him a successful entrepreneur because all along his passion was always to find success in life.
According to him in a recent interview, “Growing up I always knew I wanted to be something. I wasn’t sure exactly what that something was, I just knew I didn’t want to be nothing. Doing music as first passion as a teenager was my first step to entrepreneurship. And as I got older I witnessed the freedom of being paid for something that I loved to do. And that felt amazing,” he said.
He said he formed a partnership with a childhood friend and together, they started a journey that took them to the enchanting world of entertainment. Guyton, was the artiste, his friend, who is now a Senior Vice President of A&R at Def Jam Records, Steve Carless was the manager. But things didn’t work out as planned as the two bosom friends ended up as foes. Up till now they don’t see eye to eye.
But Guyton mused, “Although me and Steve’s plan didn’t pan out the exact way that we thought it would, the goal was still achieved because the goal ultimately was for us to be successful, it was for us to win. We may have not won together, but we still won. And we’re still winning in life. And to me that’s what matters most.”
Asahn Guyton a.k.a Hen-Roq became popular with his single “Stand Tall,” which featured emerging singer Sonyae Elise. The two paired up to create a very inspirational piece produced by Al Shux who has also produced the Jay-Z record “Empire State Of Mind” Featuring Alicia Keys. Although he was not officially signed to Def Jam Recording but he was able to obtain all his musical success through them under the wings of his friend, Steve Carless. He was affiliated with them for 7 years.
“The Kid From South Park” was born May 28, 1983. While securing both passive, and multiple streams of income, his continued mission is a promise to encourage and empower others to share their gifts with the world.
Prior to founding South Park Management in 2014, he learned a great deal of experience during his stint in the entertainment world and he still applies this to his journey today; the first being opportunity, and seizing the moment of that opportunity. He learned that no one owes you anything. Once he came to this revelation, he quickly stopped standing in his own path toward success.
Born and raised in Elizabeth, New Jersey, Asahn packed his bags in 2018 and traveled out west where he now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, acquiring multiple commercial real estate properties from the midwest area of the United States and expanding into the western area of Africa, he has proved that sometimes a change of location can work out for the better.
Asahn’s business is only getting started. He plans to continue his mission to teach his business practices to those from his community so they can achieve financial freedom. The offspring of this yearning is the book titled “A Kid From South Park”.
