“Mr. Mentor goes 1 on 1 with Black Owned Board Game Creator Kenny Mulfort”
-Who is Kenny Mulfort?
Kenny Mulfort is a genuine, creative, and innovative individual from Miami, Florida. He is a very humble man who comes from a humble beginning. In addition, he is a very interesting guy who has had a lot of interesting experiences. Mr. Mulfort was born in Miami, Florida; after high school, he went on to attend the University of Florida. Upon graduation, Mr. Mulfort went on to work in broadcasting industry as the news director for several news stations. He also worked on the set of various film and television productions such as “Single Ladies,” “The Walking Dead,” and “X-Men.” He has written several screenplays, four stage plays, and is currently finishing a novel. As of last year, Mr. Mulfort’s creativity allowed him to come up with a great concept for a board game. As it stands, the board game has been well-received.
-How did you come up with the concept for the “Last 2 Standing” board game, and how were you able to get it manufactured?
I came up with the concept while playing with friends in Houston. It started when a friend of mine asked me to come up with an ice-breaker for her birthday, and so I did. I went off-the-head with it by simply asking questions and telling everyone to eliminate the least favorite answer. Once that answer was selected, the person had to leave the conversation. Everyone loved the game; so I went back home and worked the rules and the concept, found a manufacturer, got small a loan, and then, Bam! “Last 2 Standing” was born. Now that the game is out, sales have gone well.
-Any advice for creative’s?
What makes people successful is realizing what their skill, gift, or niche is and never giving up on it. Once you find out what you want to do, be good at it. If you stick to it, you will become great. My advice is to simply stick to your craft and perfect it. You can’t get paid for doing nothing! No matter how long or how tough, stick to it!
-Any advice for Black males?
One thing that we tend to do as Black males is not ask for help. We feel that we don’t need any help and that we can do everything on our own. I’ve learned that it is OK to ask for help. When you are building a brand or a business, it’s not good to do it by yourself. Reach out to others – your parents, peers, whomever. I would rather get 10 percent from 100 people than do 100 percent on my own.
