If you need Friday nightlife entertainment, check out Taylore Made Events for parties at MIX Bricktown in Detroit. Terrance “Riko” Cochran provides the Detroit vibes for any event, anytime of the day, and that’s why he is a featured move maker on our Motivational Entrepreneur List. As a kid, Riko used to watch how excited his parents and older siblings would get as they got dressed for Friday nightlife entertainment. Riko and his high school friend, Lorenzo Spencer, decided to create their own network, and began throwing summer parties. Riko chose nightlife entertainment because he felt that people needed an escape from social issues and life, so he wanted multiple venues that provided the good music and great atmosphere for people to enjoy.
In 2004, Riko started his nightlife entertainment career with a college brand, Provodkative Entertainment, based in several cities, to include Detroit. After losing his son, Taylor at birth, Riko decided to rebrand his image in 2007 as Taylore Made Events. “The unique part about Taylore Made is that we are just that…tailor made to your liking. You can be you at my events, wear what you want to wear and always have a good time. I love to scan the room and see people vibing out on a Friday night, hugging, and laughing. Enjoying 2-4 hours of their day with no worries.”
“I fund my business through me. No handouts, no rich parents or friends, no sponsors.” Riko is a creative mind, who comes up with ideas and bring them to life, whether successful or not. You can catch Riko throwing a party on Friday at Mix Bricktown, and at several different Detroit venues throughout the week. Riko markets his events using his graphic design company, Kopykatz Designz. He also uses it as a marketing tool, helping make things clearer for the human eye.
CHALLENGES TURN VICTORIES
“With being new to nightlife entertainment or doing new business in Detroit, you have to report with venues, so your rental fees may cost you an arm and leg.” Once Riko developed his brand and began hitting goals, venues became free of charge.
Depending on your location, you must be mindful of the weather. “Michigan winter is the greatest challenge when coming up with good ideas to get your patrons to come out in the snow.” No matter the turn out, Riko makes it his mission for his guest to have a nightlife entertainment experience they won’t forget.
Another challenge faced is low staffing. “Sometimes you have to get back to the basics. Having a team is great, but never be afraid to get your hands dirty again. I still print flyers, promote, host, DJ, do security checks, etc. I fill in wherever my company lacks help.”
