“If the future road looks ominous or unpromising, and the roads back uninviting, then we need to gather our resolve and carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road in a new direction” - Maya Angelou (2002)
 
One advice given by Rhoda’s father that she will never forget was “that women would change the world and that her career was more important than a man’s career, she used this idea to motivate herself throughout her career”. Rhoda was sent to England at 17 to attend one of the top boarding schools in the country, Hurtwood House after Rhoda’s mother died of cancer of the ovaries. It was at this stage in her life that Rhoda knew she wanted to contribute to changing the world for the better”.
 
In 2003 Rhoda started Cosmo Music and Cosmo’s first concert was a two night’s event at the London’s 2000-seat Shepherds Bush Empire in May 2004. It featured the New York based, million-selling band Alabina (who have played sell-out shows everywhere from Los Angeles to Moscow) and was a huge success.
 
Rhoda found herself working alone most of the time because she wanted to keep costs down doing everything from technical rider, to contracts and PR. The success of the first concert gave Rhoda a lot of confidence but the next few concerts did not do as well. She was at her lowest but she refused to give up. Uncertain of which road to take or how to get there Rhoda Wilson knew deep down that she wanted to make a difference and this is what kept her going. One day whilst at a meeting with a businessman, regarding the sponsorship of a new concert, he was to give Rhoda a valuable advice to see herself as a brand. He told Rhoda that she could make more of a difference on the small screen.
 
Rhoda’s travels to the United Arab Emirates, around continental Europe and the United State of America, gave her some time to really evaluate her business idea, allowing her to formulate a plan of where she wanted to be and how to get there. Rhoda drew a lot of guidance from inspirational books and exercising her faith. She never stopped believing in herself and to remind herself that real success takes years. She no longer believes that you can do everything yourself regardless of costs. If you want to be successful you need to be able to ask for help. By getting the right help through asking Rhoda Wilson is definitely reaching new heights.One advice given by Rhoda’s father that she will never forget was “that women would change the world and that her career was more important than a man’s career, she used this idea to motivate herself throughout her career”.
