Damon Dash and Dr. Boyce Watkins Launch New Online "Be a Boss" Course -- Enrollment Is Open!

Damon Dash's career is legendary, as he was responsible for developing the careers of men like Jay-Z, Kanye West and the Rachel Roy fashion Line. Dr. Boyce Watkins was the only African American in the world to earn a PhD in Finance during the year 2002. Since then, he has taught Finance at major business schools for 20 years and is also the founder and CEO of Boyce Watkins Enterprises and The Watkins Media Group.
Both men are thinkers, BOSSes and doers. They are not afraid of controversy, and have achieved more before the age of 40 than most people achieve in three lifetimes. It was in this spirit that these two men have come together to create the "Intelligent Boss Moves" course - an online business coaching membership platform. (Think of it as business school without massive student loans or professors who've never actually run a business!)

What to expect from this course

This amazing course for both aspiring and established entrepreneurs focuses on strategies for business that led to Damon being able to play a significant role in the creation of the careers of Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rachel Roy and Kevin Hart.

Damon provides very detailed insight into how he was able to launch Jay-Z's career (back when nobody wanted him), as well as his fashion brands and films. Additionally, he and Dr. Watkins talk candidly about the challenges they are faced with in their existing business ventures so students can learn as they go and even partner with the two of them on business ideas. In that regard, the course is very much alive, practical, thoughtful, raw, compelling and beneficial.

Who should enroll in the course?

* Any man or woman who is interested in capitalizing in the entertainment industry
* Any man or woman who is interested in launching a new business
* Any man or woman who is interested in hearing behind the scenes details on the rise (and fall) of Roc-a-fella Records from Dame's perspective

What's the best part about signing up?

The absolute best part is that you get the ability to ask Dame and Dr. Watkins questions, as many as you want, and get a direct response!

Currently, the "Intelligent Boss Moves" course is accepting new students for 50% off the regular price. For more details and/or to enroll now, visit
