We sat down to chat with Bronx born-and-raised, Puerto Rican entrepreneur Kevin Benejam – KB – to talk about being a GQ insider, what he can’t live without, and his favorite skincare trend. With over 50k Instagram followers, KB is an influential part of the NYC style scene and always on the go whether acting, producing or helping to build brands. Check out the interview below.
Early riser for sure. I used to be a nite own but it wasn’t sustainable because I would go to sleep late and then have to wake up early for work or a meeting.
That’s a great one. It honestly depends on how I feel that day. Do I want to hear a conversation/ interview or do I want to hear information/ story without interruption? It depends what type of book and podcasts as well.
I love FaceTime but if it’s a busy day Text is way more efficient. But if I’m done with work, I like to FaceTime
Instagram for sure. I love the visuals and the connection. I’ve gained a lot of business through Instagram
I love both but these days I actually get prepared organic meals delivered to my home. Keeping it healthy but also efficient.
Jennifer Lopez, Puerto Rican and from the same neighborhood. I admire who she is and everything she has accomplished
Extra change of clothes, some Anthony skincare products 🙂
Rice and beans haha
Driven, resourceful, empathetic
I love the Anti-Wrinkle Glycolic Peptide Serum, I have been using it for 2 months and I already see a big difference!
Elevated, Trendy and Chic
First impressions are everything. What you wear will determine how you feel. Clothes is another way to express yourself.
I get to meet and develop relationships with really amazing people. I always leave meetings and events feeling inspired.
I used to be a real estate agent and during my time there I learned a lot about social media and branding. From there I started helping other agents with their brand and took my passion for fashion into play. Now I have agents, teams and Fashion brands as clients. For ON TREND, I always wanted to have my own talk show and talk to the most inspiring people in the world.
The biggest lesson is you learn more from your mistakes and your losses. Everything is a lesson learned. You just have to keep moving on and try not to make the same mistake twice.
Sleep! A haircut minimum every two weeks. I trim my beard very often. This is the first year I really got into skincare. I moisturize and cleanse before bed. I also put the Anthony High-Performance Anti-Wrinkle Glycolic Peptide Serum on as well.
