I had the opportunity to speak with the Primetime Gamechangers’ Assistance Coach, Houston Cadette. Like many good men, he is an active father in his little athlete’s life. This an eight on eight spring tackle football team composed of energetic 9,10 & 11year olds. The Coaches William Bell and Bobby Candidate are very passionate about their players, often offering assistance to the parents who can’t afford the fees.
The Coaches have started a gofundme page to rally contributions for the players. As we know it’s many talented individuals who just need that little bit of hope to keep them going, please donate to their campaign. Your donation will go towards the player’s fee of $160.00 for needed equipment such as; jerseys, padded pants and pride packs consisting of team shorts and shirts. Assistant Coach Cadette said, “We really want to make this a great experience, looking good makes you feel good and feeling good helps you play good.”

Today we are reviewing a very promising management company called NTM Group. This company is dear to me because the owner is from my hometown of Daytona Beach, FL. I learned of the company through the talent they represent. I have personally watched some of the artist and models flourish under the direction of NTM Group. I feel this is a good start for anyone looking for a career in entertainment. I had to pleasure of speaking with S. Brown who is the Chief Executive Officer of Naturally Talented Management Group, this is her story.
NTM Group stands for Naturally Talented Management Group, established in 2013. The company started by a mother that wanted to help her child. Her daughter would come home from school everyday crying because kids made fun of her by calling her names and hitting on her. She felt as if she was ugly because the kids were so cruel. One day the fed up mom wanted to help her daughter with her self-esteem, so she googled modeling. Up came a site that promoted modeling and acting, so she registered her daughter. There was an amazing response from photographers and casting directors that wanted her daughter to model for them. The duo traveled from city to city modeling, she quickly became a hot commodity.
The mother noticed that her daughter was a natural and that’s where the name naturally talented came from. After a couple of years of guiding her daughter, the mother decided to mange other people, she began managing numerous people. After the experience with her daughter, she wanted to help other children that were subjected to bullying, ridicule and low self-esteem. Those people included models, rappers and actors. NTM is a full service management company for models, actors, singers and more. We provide great, reliable customer service and talent representation. Our talent has appeared on shows like; The Glades on A & E, Disney commercials, and they have opened up for Artist such as R Kelly, Cody Simpson and Omarion. In an attempt to give back we donate to St. Jude’s Children’s hospital and during Christmas we buy toys for children that are less fortunate. We believe having a strong foundation will allow our clients shine in all they do.
