I know a lot of your fans are hoping this new interview points to a new project. Can you tell us anything about what's happening on your next project?
I'm very excited to be releasing more projects. I think just for me, I'm at a point where I want to try different things.
How often do we see a black man or female in a high-level leadership position in business? Where are the black leaders in corporate America? I want to provide our people with the opportunities our ancestors were denied. I want to provide our people a platform that will give them a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to exercise their gifts in high-level leadership positions.
To help with this, Ira Curry Holdings, Inc. and I are set to launch the “Vice President Trainee” program in 2024. More on this soon.
So cool! Recently there's been a lot of talk about your rise to fame. What were you like as a kid? Did you know you were going to be famous?
I isolated myself from others as a kid. I was bullied in school. I didn’t fit in. When everyone went left, I made a decision to go right. Outside of my mom raising me, I use to joke that God raised me using the internet, a laptop and YouTube.
I knew from an early age that I had a special connection with God. There were seasons He allowed me to forget but that was all a part of the process. God reached out to me in 2018 and asked me to leave my nine-five. He wanted me to step out on faith and into the unknown.
I understood the assignment. I trusted him. I went through my process. I faced my giants. I knew that my obedience would lead to Him making my name great. So, I'm not at all surprised that the appointed time has come.
In March 2023, you launched The Ira Curry Show, which is super cool. I'm curious what that transition meant to you?
The Ira Curry Show is a reality television series that focuses on the personal and professional life of myself. The transition from coaching to reality TV was connected to my next level. I've had so much success in business and it was time to do a new thing.
Entrepreneurship is a lonely journey as I've said in several other interviews. The Ira Curry show is my way to keep my fans encouraged, entertained and motivated throughout their journey in business. The show features behind-the-scenes of my personal relationship with God in my “God-Made Celebrity” skits.
The show is streaming on Ira Curry TV as of March 14, 2023 and will soon be released to YouTube worldwide. Y'all go check it out at iracurry.com/show.
