Heather Ballentine is a beautiful southern belle with a keen ear for quality music and a keen eye for exotic luxury cars. And that’s exactly how she lives her life: selling Lamborghinis, writing music, singing songs, building media brand, and modeling pin-up. Entrepreneur by day, artist by night.
Her pursuit of excitement, education, and entertainment all began in Arkansas. There, she was born to Marilyn Monroe (not to the Marilyn Monroe: but to a wonderful woman named after the star). This early exposure is what gave Heather the insatiable hunger for a taste of the world of pin-up fashion. Together, they lived with her entrepreneurial father, a man with a deep passion for music and an even deeper love for cars. Heather’s home was an environment that both embraced and encouraged her drive for success.
Following her mother’s influence, Heather began commercial and runway modeling throughout her University experience. This is a time when she truly got to know herself, when she truly found herself, and when she truly embraced herself. Heather shifted to pin-up modeling to show off her curves and to step out against societal pressures. This gumption placed her in the top-ten of the Miss Arkansas Pageant and as the number one swimsuit queen. She used the rewards to help pay for her education, and she used the experience to make a difference.
Following her father’s passion, Heather went on to pursue a career in music entertainment in LA. She collaborated with musicians and artists and eventually worked her way up to being part of a band that opened many major acts in 10 different countries around the world. Together with her co-writer Lary Bartley and Grammy Winning Producer, Pete Anderson, she eventually created an album, “The Cat’s Meow”.
Throughout this time in LA, she juggled several online businesses to support herself. This is the exact experience, inspiration, and time management that has allowed her to cultivate the space needed to become a spokesperson, an entertainment media mogul, and later, a successful Lamborghini saleswoman. She has filled this space with her journey to building entertainment businesses and brands through both new and traditional media. Currently, Heather is the president of Cool Cat Records Inc. and Ballentine Entertainment.
Following her father’s love, Heather bought herself her first car: a teal green Chevrolet Camaro. Over the years, she afforded herself an even higher performance car: a Porsche 928. At the time, she was only 19, yet she was more in tune with her need for speed – and luxury – when it came to getting behind the wheel. Her cars haven’t lasted forever, but her passion has. Today, Heather is in the top percentage of super luxe car salespeople in North America.
Her unique curvacious pin-up style has encouraged her to be an actor of social change. Her innate tendency towards music has led her to making media history. Her love for cars has influenced her success in luxury automobile sales. And now, her booming success and contagious personality has drawn her motivational speaking and inspirational content.
This success is the result of an inherently determined mind and a growing entrepreneurial spirit. Whatever comes her way, Heather Ballentine is driven to succeed.
Today I’m letting you in on a secret. I’ve had a breakthrough, and I’ve decided to merge several aspects of my life. That probably makes no sense to you, but it’s major for me! A lot of you reading this blog know who I am, but many of you only know a small part of what I do. Maybe you’ve seen my music videos or pinup photos, maybe you’ve purchased an exotic car from me, or maybe you know me as an entrepreneur with Cool Cat Records, but most of you don’t know that for years.

Sometimes the only thing you need to succeed is to be the last man standing. What I mean by that is, you have to be willing to persevere even when the conditions are tough because something better is just over the horizon. If you don't believe in yourself enough to sustain all the ups and downs, you might give up too soon and miss great opportunity. Remember, nothing worth obtaining is ever easy, sometimes you just have to hang in there a little longer and be the last man standing. Read more click here.1st June
Today, I want to share some of my insight into branding and just how important it is. The first thing you have to realize is that YOU ARE A BRAND! In fact anyone and everyone is a brand. Many times I’ve seen aspiring artist show up to an event looking like they just rolled out of bed. They had no personal style or identifiable branding, yet they are trying to “make it”. If you think about successful bands and artist over the years, you’ll realize that branding is so important. Read more click here.14th June
Addiction is something that I thought would never touch me. It’s something that people in movies deal with, or alcoholics, or people who are part of the town gossip because of their crazy behavior…but not me. I lived in Los Angeles the majority of my twenties and I was surrounded by people in the entertainment business, so there was an ample amount of drugs, sex, and rock n’ roll everywhere you turned.

Okay so this blog is not what you’re thinking it’s about….so get your mind out of the gutter and hear me out. No seriously…toys come in all shapes and sizes and you never see a toddler refrain from opening one and playing with it. They literally can’t wait to rip them open and start having fun. So why are adults so hesitant? Isn’t it time we had fun too? Read more click here23rd June
Splitting a Deal is something that most people in the car business wouldn’t dream of. It would only happen on a rare occasion when someone was sick or something terrible happened that prevented them from delivering the car or finalizing the deal. It certainly wouldn’t be a choice. However, in my world this is a common occurrence and can be a wise decision for anyone in sales, if it’s done properly. Let me explain... Read more click here.21th July
