Hidden Legend of Atlanta: Walter Gainer II


I am a problem solving creative that helps people and businesses develop their brands, manage projects, and create content that helps to tell their stories.

How are you impacting your community?

I am elevating Black voices through my podcast "BossLocks" where I am redefining professionalism and proving that natural hair and professionalism do coexist.


What advice would you give to someone looking to follow your path in the industry?

There are three things you must always do... Create, Publish your creation, and Repeat. We often get caught up with what you need to have or what comes first but everything will line up for you once you start putting out content into the world. Matter of fact, I have been getting leads for clients without even having a website or master sales strategy. All I've been doing is creating, publishing, and repeating the process.
