My Definition of Success | Success to me is being happy with all aspects of life. It’s not just about how much money you have it’s a balance of all things that make you happy. Success is also very relative so you need to make of it what you like.
What Drives Me | Music, people, education and growth of self. I’m inspired by everything around me and that drives me to do everything I do bigger and better than yesterday.
Highlights | Proving everyone around me wrong about a music career. Nobody believed I could do what I’ve done with my passion and that makes me most proud. I have big dreams and to be able to step closer to them everyday is the highlight of my day everyday.
The Difference between good and Great | Greatness is achieved by constantly perfecting your craft and pushing the boundaries to the limit. Being good at what you do is more about your talent and in most cases talent counts for 10% of greatness.
My Talent | Being a people’s person and always being able to relate to all races and age groups. It’s not so much a talent but it’s a necessary skill for all business and human relations. You need to be open-minded, understanding and willing to learn about other people and their likes and dislikes without taking any offense to it.
Daily Actions | I’m constantly trying my best to do something for my brand each and everyday. I’m very driven and consumed by being better than myself the previous day.
Principles I live By | I think everyone is raised up knowing the difference between right and wrong. Always try to do the right thing and invest your time and energy into things you are passionate about.
Critical Skills I have Learnt | Teaching myself about business and what it’s all about. Running an efficient and tight business not only requires time and effort it also requires education and I’ve been trying my best to run the best DJ operation in the country.
Feeding My Mind | I try to keep my mind pure and honest and I do this by picking and choosing the type of media I consume. I also read a lot of motivational material to keep myself positive and inspired. Motivation is like taking a bath you need to do it at least once a day.
Dealing with Doubt | I doubt myself everyday. Each and every decision I make comes with doubt but I remedy this by listening to my gut feel and going with that. The type of business I’m in means I have to think forward and ask myself If someone else will like what I’m doing or not regardless of how positive I am about it.
Resources I Use | I speak to a lot of people who have been down the road I want to embark upon so I don’t make the same mistakes they’ve made. I also read a lot of books and spend lots of time reading blogs on the internet reading and researching trends.
My Ambition and Dream | To be better than me from yesterday. I always dream so big that I have to hold myself back at times but right now I’m chasing an international career.
The Meaning of Life | There’s a reason G-D has given us all one life. It’s not a dress rehearsal it’s not a second chance it’s here, it’s now so you have to give it your all and suck all the life out of it for lack of a better term
The Best Advice I’ve Received | To run myself and my life at the level at which you wish to operate so that when the time comes or you get closer to that place or goal you are ready.
Making Money | Make sure you are doing it for all the right reasons and find something you are passionate about so you never have to work a day in your life.
