A young man with many talents, Phillip began to make a name for himself around his Peers, and created a crew with the same mindset.

ITCM Questionnaire : Tell us about a time you thought outside of the box to get your business to the people.
I was on my way to my place of business, and I noticed a long line with approximately about 100 cars or more all lined up in a line. I asked why are they were in line, and someone replied “107.9 is giving out free gas,” I thought fast, grabbed my cards, and walked in. I passed them out to each and everyone that was in the car. At the time I didn’t think that I was doing anything or maybe they were just gonna throw it out the car once they realize it wasn’t a ticket. A year down the line a customer came to me and told me they remember when I came out and I did that and they have being coming ever since it made me feel like what did was not in vain.
ITCM Questionnaire: In Business do you think its crucial to have a trusted circle or a Tribe of Trusted people you can count on. Do you have a tribe? Why do you think it’s important to have a tribe?
It’s important to have a tribe because you cannot get anywhere without help.
Mr. Stringer can be seen as a leader in the community and being a great example for younger generations, in the inner city from doing food/toy give a ways.
During his spare time, he enjoys playing golf on courses throughout the Atlanta Metro Area.
ITCM Questionnaire: Tell Our readers about your mindset for 2024?
I want to expand and make Domontra‘s, a brand-name for universal brand-name, and to make opportunities for entrepreneurs like myself to create in transit, and be example of what a black man may you have wanted something else in life, but always stay humble and ready to move in the direction in which God wanted me to become.
It’s all about divine timing, so dare to be different. Everyone is going to have their moment so always seize the opportunity, pray, and keep God first.
