How Timothy “TIMMAY” Bain Built An Award Winning Bahamian Digital Media Empire

Timothy Bain

This week on “How They Did It” I talked to Timothy “Timmay” Bain, Bahamian award-winning media entrepreneur and Vlogger. Timmay talks about how he founded 3 Amigos Media with his friends, the sacrifices he had to make to get to where he is today and how he was able to overcome being a student and acquiring all the equipment needed for his business by sacrificing lunch money and doing part-time jobs.  Timmay didn’t finish College like his business partners. He dropped out to focus fully on his company 3AM in late 2014 and ended up finding jobs as a Social Media Coordinator for BTC and Marketing Brand Representative for KALIK. He also grew up on New Providence.

How Destra Garcia Is Dominating Social Media And Music While Staying True To The Caribbean

Destra Garcia

I spent 5 years in Mexico, and one of my fondest memories was the occasional “Fiesta Caribeña” my friends and I organized. We mainly planned and executed the event to maintain our Caribbean identity and culture as well as to help our Mexican friends experience our different countries through us without actually going there. With that said, it then begs the question, how can the average Caribbean national or even better those in privileged positions like entertainers play their part by painting pictures of the Caribbean to others who are not as privileged to be there? My last two articles on the Huffington Post dealt with the responsibility Caribbean natives have to help control the narrative about our respective countries in the media and how Caribbean soca artists can use social media to build their brands worldwide. Those topics are very important to me, and I also think they go hand in hand since Caribbean artists and well-known personalities can make a significant contribution by promoting themselves while eliminating some of the misconceptions people may have about the Caribbean.

The discussion centered around marketers and their ability to sell anything, no matter how crappy it is. I have a different view of that topic, for me, no amount of marketing can sell a crappy product. However, it was pointed out to me that marketing sells crappy product all the time.

Hustle beats talent when talent doesn’t hustle- The Tamarind Ball Hustle

Tamrind Ball Hustle

I was about 9 or 10 years old, in primary school (St Andrew Anglican Primary School). I remember on a daily basis, my peers will be selling different things at school at break time. Whether it was candies, cakes, tamarind balls, anything that kids in primary school will buy. The school sold snow ice, so every break time I purchased a snow ice and a cake or something else. One day I asked myself, why do I have to be the one always buying stuff. I wanted to get in on the hustle. There was a big tamarind tree close to my house, so I decided to pick tamarind and make tamarind balls. I asked my mom for one dollar to buy a pound of sugar, and it was game on.
