Hear some of his client testimonies.

His varied background confirms his long-held belief that “it’s not about the type of business, it’s about the people being served”.

According to Gatewood, “I’ve seen too many business owners waste a fortune and valuable time on advertising gimmicks and websites that don’t deliver. Some never recover.” He adds, “each new client benefits from the experience and expertise that has worked wonders for me and my other successful clients.” As one of  Gatewood’s clients put it, “this is definitely one guy you’d rather have on YOUR team than on the other side”.


Since Gatewood has the education and experience to back up his success models, he  is a favorite when a “heavy” is needed to discuss marketing from “real life” as well as  “by the books” points 0f view, as demonstrated below by his interview on the TV series “Growing Pains”.

Gatewood, through Gatewood Marketing, has built a successful and responsive organization that abides by the highest ethical standards. It can handle all of a company’s marketing activities, part of them, or through an affordable series of seminars, videos, workforce development training, and his radio show, “The Marketing Pulpit”, a business owner can learn how to do it himself.

Played in Full

This book examines how a disparate group of institutions and individuals have coalesced into an unlikely alliance of Players who opportunistically, individually and collectively extract wealth from Blacks.

  • Pathological Incorrigible Malevolent Player (PIMP)
  • Passive Opportunistic Player (POP)
  • Philanthropic Accidental Player (PAP)
  • Positive Enlightened Player (PEP)

The book exposes the one-side relationships the Players use to promote and exploit a mindset of externalism and social proof that pervades the community.

It's a handbook that provides a host of remedies that can be applied by the community's stakeholders in order to mend the sieve that is the pocketbook of Black America.

Gatewood, the Author of  "Played In Full," discusses his book during an appearance on the Joe Madison Show.

What if you ARE the boss?

This book is a compilation of essays to guide and inspire employees, employers and the self-employed as they navigate real-life challenges associated with life on and off the job.
