Steven Dorn has made a career reinventing himself. Always staying ahead of the curve and being willing to move beyond past successes in order to take risks for future achievements, Steven Dorn is your favorite entrepreneur’s favorite entrepreneur. Creating trends and finding success at such a young age in the music, film, sports, and entertainment industries is precisely why Dorn is an entrepreneur we are keeping a close eye on. 

Dorn is an entrepreneurial and investing aficionado, making an impact on multiple industries over the course of his career despite his young age. Even though Dorn is now known for having influenced various culturally relevant projects over the last few years, Dorn built his irreplaceable network and signature out-of-the-box style in the music industry, first as a talent scout and manager then as a full-fledged music entrepreneur. 

Dorn’s VC and music management firm has been breaking the mold in the industry for years. Dorn’s deep expertise, creative marketing, and strong network put him in a position to nurture artists’ skills as well as put them in the right rooms to succeed in the business. Dorn has worked closely with Grammy-nominated Bryson Tiller, the new star Pink Sweat$, and the international singer Yo Trane at various stages of their careers. 

XYZ Media have been able to paly a consistent and significant role in the careers of many artists due to Dorn’s unparalleled ability to create strategic partnerships and word-of-mouth momentum with out-of-the-box tactical partnerships. 

Now that COVID-19 has restricted most artists’ ability to make money via touring like they traditionally do, Dorn’s consistency and commitment to investing in unique partnerships is even more important than ever. Beyond supporting the artists, Dorn is making network as available as possible to his artists. Dorn knows that now is a time to help and does not worry about taking short-term losses and risks. Dorn believes that, in the long run, investing in people is the most lucrative as well as fulfilling strategy. 

Since Dorn is already well known in the industry and in elite creative circles, he is able to make tactical choices others cannot. In order to generate the most authentic buzz he can, Dorn’s XYZ Media made the deliberate choice to avoid traditional advertising methods and to forgo creating marketing collateral. Dorn focuses on leveraging this mysterious brand in order to create sincere grassroots momentum for his artists in a way traditional competitors cannot. Dorn also separates XYZ Media from the pack by emphasizing hyper-segmented and out-of-the-box strategic partnerships for his artists with any potential partner that is aligned with their creative vision and audience. XYZ Media and Dorn were recently the subjects of a Forbes feature highlighting Dorn’s ability to cultivate talent,  connect artists with the right people (producers, partners, et cetera), and his atypical marketing style.    

Despite the uncertain times, XYZ Media and Dorn are looking to expand their business. Dorn recently put together a new docu-series tilted, “Tiger Kingdom,” which is garnering positive media attention in Haute Living, Forbes India, Yahoo Finance, People, Elite Daily, and more

Sara Zaimi Vies for Miss NJ Crown




The Miss NJ competition seeks a leader, a role model who inspires with both brains and heart. Enter Sara Zaimi, a trailblazing pharmacist with a Doctorate (PharmD) whose passion for women’s health and community empowerment burns brightly.

A brush with mortality at a young age – chest pain and a concerning blood test – ignited a fire in Sara. Witnessing the unwavering spirit of women battling cancer in the oncology ward solidified her desire to make a difference. It was her mother’s unwavering support, the way she held her hand through fear and doubt, that propelled Sara to answer that call. Overcoming self-doubt and depression, she embarked on a remarkable academic journey, graduating with her PharmD at the prestigious Rutgers University at the early age of 23, placing her among the top 10% of her class.

As a first-generation Algerian American, she’s a testament to the power of hard work and perseverance. Her academic achievements, including valedictorian honors and consistent Dean’s List placements, stand as a testament. This translates further into her successful business, where she champions women’s health awareness. Her impact extends far beyond the pharmacy walls. Sara dedicates her time to NJ Sisterhood, empowering young women and inner-city communities. Her fluency in Spanish further highlights her commitment to inclusivity and understanding.

Driven by personal experience and empathy, Sara aims to leverage the Miss NJ platform to tackle critical women’s health issues. From early detection of breast cancer to advocating for increased resources, she seeks to empower women to take charge of their health. Her work with NJ Sisterhood complements this mission, focusing on projects that empower women and address their specific needs. Her advocacy includes promoting 3D areola tattooing for breast cancer survivors, a powerful example of how science and art can converge in the healing process.

Sara’s strength lies in the synergy of her diverse experiences. Her business acumen and her work with NJ Sisterhood position her to champion women’s health and community well-being on a grander stage. She envisions using the Miss NJ platform to create tangible change, increasing resources for those affected by breast cancer and other women’s health issues.

The demands of a successful business, active volunteer work with NJ Sisterhood, and the rigorous training for the Miss NJ competition require exceptional time management skills. Sara thrives under pressure, meticulously juggling her commitments without compromising on quality.

Her multifaceted personality, unwavering commitment to women’s health, and passion for community empowerment make her a strong contender for Miss NJ. She embodies the true spirit of the competition: a woman who is not just beautiful, but a force for good, inspiring young women to reach for their dreams and embrace their unique talents.
