1. Success is a reiterative process

Did you ever have an idea that was brilliant, yet it never came to reality?

Was it fear? Was it procrastination?

Whatever it was — relieving yourself of the pressure of perfection will pay strong dividends in the future.

You don’t have to get it right on the first try. Just get close, then refine each time. What you’ll learn is that no amount of reading, YouTube videos, or higher education can replace just doing it.

As you get started you will learn what areas you are good in, what areas need to be improved, and what needs to be delegated. …

Some are cheering right now, some are hurting.

Regardless, we all are feeling a weight bearing on us right now. The political climate is in a state we’ve never seen. For many, it feels like there is so much uncertainty in the unknown.

For others there is hope.

So many of us didn’t know what to say, how to vote, we simply just did what we felt was best. However we voted, whether we voted at all, we just wanted to do what we felt in our heart was best.

We’ve been pressured to say the right thing, vote for the “right” person, but how often have we been challenged to DO the right thing? …

Let me start by saying I am not a car guy. I have never had an affinity for cars. I bought my “dream car” at age 17 for about $10,000.

I found a crumpled up piece of paper in the bottom of my backpack the other day. It was a list I made in 2018 of all of the things I wanted to enhance my quality of life — camera gear, designer clothing, DJ gear, new computer for work. A ton of stuff.

At first, I diligently committed to updating my list. Each time I obtained an item I would cross it out. Dark enough to where I knew I had purchased it but light enough so I could still see what it was. …

Does music ever get repetitive and boring to you? Do you ever get tired of hearing the same songs over and over again? As a DJ I often got music fatigue. Then I realized I was not enjoying music. I was just listening to it.

This is a guide to help you identify 5 ways to improve your music listening experience.

1. Listen to a Complete Body of Work Rather Than Hand Picking Songs

Think of your proudest body of work.

Is it a piece of art?

A blog post?

Imagine you spend weeks, months, perhaps years on it. You put thousands of dollars behind a marketing campaign. This is your best work.

Then… your audience consumes only a fraction. …

Picture this, you decided that you want to take the plunge to be a DJ. You caught some inspiration, watched YouTube video after YouTube video and realized how much you love the art, now you want to try it out for yourself. You invested in your first set of turntables, purchased your mixer and now you’re ready to go! You rush home, dust off the laptop, set your equipment up in the kitchen.

Then you realize… you can’t mix without having songs to mix.

“Ah that’s fine,” you think to yourself. You gather the random files on your computer, most of which are mp3s from old albums you downloaded when you were in middle school. …

To be a great DJ 30 years ago required a serious investment. Having a vast amount of music was essential to rock a party. The days of music pools and buying single digital copies on iTunes did not exist. The only option was to purchase an entire record.

DJs would go through their record collection, line up the tracks they plan to play in the order in which they would play them, pack them up, and then head out for their show. …

I sat down to talk business with a mentor of mine. We talked about tech, we talked about marketing, we talked about branding. Then, we talked about my, at the time, side hustle as a DJ.

He said to me… text 10 women you respect the most and ask them, “would you marry a DJ?”

Let’s be honest as young men — before we understand who we truly are we often turn to women for validation.

I texted about 7.

I think 5 said no.

1 said, “it depends.”

At this point I started second guessing myself, and timidly asked the last woman. …
