Fredderick Nettles is the CEO of Segment Productions and is the host of the rising YouTube series “The Segment Live”. He aims to create a space for both underprivileged and influential athletes, entrepreneurs, and creatives as they share their journey through life from their own perspectives.
In this episode, Fredderick Nettles shares how Segment Productions came to existence as he talks about the importance of keeping yourself focused on the mission that you have in life.
“You have to keep the mission. Keep your eye on the North Star. Why are you doing what you’re doing? Nothing else matters. The money doesn’t matter. Having people alongside you doesn’t matter. Because at the end of the day, you have to have this thought and this knowing and feeling that what you’re doing is right. As long as you keep the mission a part of your North Star, nothing else matters and everything else will come in its time.” – Fredderick Nettles

“The entrepreneurial lifestyle is not for everyone. You’re gonna get a lot of no’s. You’re gonna have a lack of funding most of the time, if not 98% of the time. It’s the other two percent that will help repel you to a new level, wherever that new level may be. The work starts once you write that thought process.” – Fredderick Nettles
“I definitely don’t regret anything that’s happened up until this point. Every part of this process has been very beneficial to not only my growth, personally, but to the growth of the production.” – Fredderick Nettles
“Just don’t give up. If you believe that what you’re doing is right, keep your eye on the North Star and remember your why. No one can stop what God has planned for you.” – Fredderick Nettles
