Meet CEO + Executive Producer Kristen Renee Ingram of PLUS ONE Society
What’s a quote that fuels your passion?
“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”
― Muhammad Ali
Kristen, your Humble Takeover is your story. Although one post could not tell your whole story, we are glad to highlight a few of your Great efforts. Tell the family where you started and how you got to where you are today.
My external success could be attributed to any one of the values, principles, talents or “lucky breaks” that have unfolded throughout the journey thus far, but the factor that stands out the most is my ruthless focus. By applying ruthless focus to every aspect of my life, including my agency “PLUS ONE society” brand, I have achieved award-winning, historical, unprecedented and seemingly impossible successes. Since transitioning from NFL executive to SheEO of PLUS ONE society in 2017, I have become one of the premiere social justice campaign and event producers in the country with a Client roster that includes the NBA, COMMON, Amazon Prime and NBC Universal. PLUS ONE society is in essence the branded manifestation of myself.
Which chapter in your story inspired your current venture?
I was inspired most by my experiences and career in sports beginning with an internship in the Sports Marketing Department at UNLV. I was amazed at the power of sports and its ability to connect cultures and provoke progressive action. I launched PLUS ONE society with the intent to leverage that power to directly uplift and amplify social justice movements that influence positive change within the culture.
What keeps you Humble through your success and failure in Life?
The most humbling factor is knowing that the work I do is bigger than me and acknowledging the responsibility that comes attached to the calling. Failure is not an option, so I am willing to do whatever it takes.
What advice would you offer our family who is writing their own story?
I believe the quality of your life is directly linked to the quality of the questions you ask yourself so I would encourage everyone to consistently ask themselves the following:
Did I get better today?
What tools do I need to cultivate in order to achieve my goal?
Where can I be more disciplined?
What habits, ideas and beliefs are preventing me from becoming the highest version of myself?
Who do I need to forgive?
How can I use my talents and resources to serve others?
Do you have any upcoming events or projects you would like to share?
Play for Justice is one of our many upcoming projects. Play for Justice is a partnership between NBA teams and Represent Justice, a nonprofit which uses narrative change to create public demand for a more fair legal system and dignity for those impacted by it and is produced by my agency, PLUS ONE society. It brings together players, policy influencers and community organizations to uplift narratives of hope and redemption and break down stigmas associated with individuals—disproportionately people of color and the poor—who are impacted by the justice system.
We’d love to hear more stories, please suggest 5 other persons writing their own story and Conquering the World.
