For eight years of his adult life, between 2001 and 2008, he failed woefully at all that he did. But it was also in 2008 that he became a very successful music manager.

In that year, Charlie discovered Travis Porter, Young Dolph, and 2 Chainz. Charlie sold several million songs and won a Grammy. But it wasn't that way from the beginning. Recounting his failures, he wrote on Instagram:

"I wrote this whiteboard years ago after I finally became successful. I failed so many times…. The one that hurt the worst was being fired from being Soulja boys camera man. Then I got into management and my first group fired me.
"And then I finally became successful with Travis porter and 2 Chainz. Since this whiteboard, I became a Nike athlete, a motivational speaker, a philanthropist, and have created everything you see me doing now …… for anyone reading this….. just know there’s gonna be a moment for you where you never turn back. Your winning streak will begin and it will never turn back."
