After reading the below article on ‘Jersey Shore’s’ Pauly D I have a new found respect for him. Admittedly, I’ve never been a fan of the ‘Jersey Shore’, but when I worked at MTV Networks, Inc. apart of my job was to review tape of the show before it aired. This kid Pauly D has continued to build off the Brand that he already had before the show and the results have been amazing! Check out the below article & be inspired! xo @RozOonThego
Paul DelVecchio’s résumé doesn’t scream “Master of the Universe,” at least not at first glance. The Rhode Island native never attended college, instead taking a job at a car dealership after high school. For much of the last decade, he spent the bulk of his nights and weekends DJing small clubs in Providence for a few hundred dollars a pop.
But something changed in 2009, when he was selected to be a part of MTV’s Jersey Shore.Three years later he’s got a slew of eponymous products, his own television show and a DJ career that earns him an average of $40,000 per show from club gigs, private parties and a stint opening for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour. Over the past year, Pauly D pulled in $11 million, enough to earn him the No. 7 spot on FORBES’ first-ever top-earning DJs list.
