Peace #Tr3Gang!&nbsp; Well today is day 1 of the 30 day stay at home orders here in NC, although to me it seems like the rules are the same as the 14 day quarantine we've been under for the last 2 weeks.&nbsp; I hope you all are still holding up well and remaining healthy during this weird time.&nbsp; I love seeing the Tik Tok videos on my feed, and I'm really loving the family time you all are sharing with the world.&nbsp; So last week I wrote my first e-book "How To Fire Your Boss" and the process of writing it wasn't that bad.&nbsp; So what made me write it?&nbsp; Let's talk about it. &nbsp; A year ago I came up with the idea of writing an e-book and came up with that same title while I was boarding a plane coming home from my birthday trip to Tampa.&nbsp; But I never worked on it when I got back, I was in my own way.&nbsp; Which is crazy because I've been wanting to create digital products for the longest time, and simply procrastinated.&nbsp; Covid-19 put everything on hold so I had no excuse and nothing but time to get it done.&nbsp; So I learned how to create an e-book on YouTube University and went to work.&nbsp; After completing it I had to ask myself why the hell did I procrastinate with this project, the inner me had no answer. &nbsp; I wrote the e-book for people that's working at a job they despise going to, and I provide ways they can fire their boss so they can live life on their terms.&nbsp; It's a beautiful feeling being in control of your career and life.&nbsp; Setting your own hours, pay, no limits on vacation days, and more importantly improving your overall quality of life.&nbsp; Entrepreneurship has afforded me more time to spend with my family, and the resources to invest in experiences like traveling.&nbsp; Is this journey easy?&nbsp; Nope far from it, it does require a certain degree of work.&nbsp; But the reward is far greater once you've made the sacrifice.&nbsp; How To Fire Your Boss will be available tomorrow at 3two1radio.com (hit the last tab and the site link will be there).&nbsp; The e-book is $5, audio version is $5, and the bundle is $10 and you'll get a free worksheet with it.&nbsp; Love.158979hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindsetblogs/3-2020/158979-hustle101-djpreneur-s.jpgQuarantine Lifehttps://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-coronavirus-entrepreneur-winning-mindset-1677113/features/blogs/dj3two1-coronavirus-entrepreneur-winning-mindset-1677113/Posted by dj3two10https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-coronavirus-entrepreneur-winning-mindset-1677113/#commentsSun, 22 Mar 2020 22:30 GMT&nbsp; Peace Tr3 Gang!&nbsp; How are you all holding up during this beer virus shutdown?&nbsp; Not even going to lie to you, restaurants closing temporarily has impacted my business.&nbsp; This year I wanted to work on building my online store selling my merchandise so I can have online income that won't be affected by things beyond my control.&nbsp; Unfortunately I'm still in the early stages so the income isn't consistent, but I'm still going to work towards building it up despite what's going on.&nbsp; Honestly this situation is making me get creative with being productive.&nbsp; Here's what I plan to do while on "lock down." &nbsp; With my residencies postponed, I'm going to finally work on a e-book series.&nbsp; Since I've been home, I've taken time to learn how to make e-books and also the niche I'm going to jump into.&nbsp; I'll also work on my audio series as well, I'm focusing on creating digital products as a way to monetize my podcast and my social media.&nbsp; This also the perfect time to work on improving my content for social media, so the next 30 days will be perfect to implement new changes and routines for my brand.&nbsp; Even though the circumstances really suck, the positive is this is a prime opportunity to turn things around in my life and with my businesses. &nbsp; At first I was slightly worried about my finances but worrying about it wouldn't solve anything or help at all.&nbsp; So I've shifted my focus to remaining proactive and positive.&nbsp; One part of my business may be affected but my marketing agency isn't so I can still work on getting new clients on top what I've stated previously.&nbsp; This is why having multiple streams of income and having a growth mindset is so essential.&nbsp; The 10k a month plan is still in motion, just had to make changes that were necessary, but I will still make it happen.&nbsp;

Peace #Tr3Gang, this beer virus got the world going crazy right now especially here in 'Murica.&nbsp; We got rich folks buying more stocks and the rest of the people are buying toilet paper and then they wonder how the rich get richer.&nbsp; But I digress, I hope you all are doing well despite this crazy pandemic.&nbsp; Just make sure you're still making wise decisions and investments during the madness.&nbsp; When things look bleak, we still have to stay down and keep our eyes on the prize.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; Lately I've been reading The Wealth Choice by Dennis Kimbro and one of the keys in the book is being committed so that wealth can wrap it's around me.&nbsp; I've also been listening to Nipsey Hussle "Been Down" on repeat and he raps "this what happens...stay down..game bless you."&nbsp; Those 2 elements speak to me because I'm growing through a struggle moment building my brand in a bigger city coming from a small town.&nbsp; I've been frustrated, questioning did I make the right decision coming to the RDU area.&nbsp; Challenges working with impatient clients, but today before I started on this post I opened my daily motivational reader.&nbsp; The title of today's passage read "Greatness Takes Time" which is fitting because just 8 hours prior I was venting to my good friend about my frustration.&nbsp; I'm taking heed to the messages, I'm going to stay down and continue to grow through this.&nbsp; I was never going to give up, but I'm not going to make any changes or switch up what I'm doing.&nbsp; I have to stay down and give it time to work. &nbsp; Stay down is more than just a phrase, it's a major key to achieving our goals.&nbsp; We've developed this microwave mentality and don't give things time to be great.&nbsp; We got through situations that test our patience and commitment, will we stay down or will we switch up when there's a setback?&nbsp; Take your time, and stop rushing because greatness takes time.&nbsp;

Peace Tr3 Fam!&nbsp; Is it me or is February moving slower than January?&nbsp; Maybe it''s because my trainer in VA got me doing this ab challenge for the entire month.&nbsp; I got this ab roller and the challenge is 29 reps everyday for the entire month.&nbsp; I should''ve switched up my eating to go with the challenge but I missed that opportunity, sad to say I still have no abs (well when I flex I can see them).&nbsp; But the gut is still here chilling, not for long tho because March I''m tighten up.&nbsp; But this month has been lit business wise, once I had my plan in place I haven''t looked back.&nbsp; Writing down your plan is like a road map for your journey, it may not be straight and narrow but I know where I''m headed.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; So Yo! Karaoke is consistently growing and moving in a positive direction, I have a new residency at Rookie''s in Wake Forest which is right outside of Raleigh.&nbsp; My situation with Applebee''s in Roanoke Rapids has expanded from 1 Thursday to 2 Thursdays a month starting in April.&nbsp; I''m working on another situation with this Sweepstakes (internet gambling spot) in Raleigh where I''m hoping to do karaoke there 2 Saturdays a month.&nbsp; My goal is to generate $24k annually just from my residencies alone.&nbsp; The long term goal is to build the brand up to the point where I''m hosting Yo! Karaoke at major resorts like Harrah''s, Hard Rock Cafe, etc and generating 6 figures from those situations.&nbsp; But I have to be able to manage what I''m doing now in order to grow to that level.&nbsp; Plus I don''t want to be in bars and restaurants forever. &nbsp; The first Sang &amp; Play event is around the corner and I''m excited about it.&nbsp; There''s over 100 people interested in the event on Facebook, I believe I''m onto something with this.&nbsp; What I love about it is I don''t need 3-400 people to make it a success.&nbsp; I want to build it to where I can get a consistent 100 people whenever the event takes place.&nbsp; I just want those people to come out and have fun, from couples to singles I want to create fun vibes for everyone.&nbsp; If 100 people come to the first one, I might get too turnt up lol.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; The plan is still in phase 1 but I''m excited to see things evolve/grow into what I envisioned, one thing I want to develop is patience and appreciate the process more.&nbsp; Because the process is us living out our dreams instead of chasing them.&nbsp; See we bought into the notion of chasing the end result of the process, so we call it chasing our dreams.&nbsp; When the whole time we''re living out our dreams during the process and didn''t even realize it.&nbsp; Next week I''ll update you all on my Youtube strategy, but until then check out the latest vlogs on the video tab and episode 14 of 3two1 Radio is live too.&nbsp; See you all next week, love.155673hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindset, goaldiggingbvc/139/29134-3two1-radio.jpgIn Motion!https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-djlife-winning-mindset-entrepreneur-1520202/features/blogs/dj3two1-djlife-winning-mindset-entrepreneur-1520202/Posted by dj3two10https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-djlife-winning-mindset-entrepreneur-1520202/#commentsWed, 12 Feb 2020 19:00 GMT&nbsp; Peace Tr3 Fam!&nbsp; How's life?&nbsp; I'm in a great space, started meditating after working out and it's really been a big help mentally.&nbsp; So last week I laid out my plan of how I'm going to build up my revenue to $10,000 a month, and what I love about the plan is each idea can bring in $10,000 a month.&nbsp; In 4 years I should be sitting at $75,000 a month, and it will allows me to create opportunities and hire team members.&nbsp; I can show them the ropes, and teach them how to be more valuable in the marketplace.&nbsp; Shortly after last week's post went live, the plan officially was in motion so let's get into that! &nbsp; I'm all about taking action, so I didn't want to waste any time with getting started.&nbsp; I texted a client that I was working with and ran my idea by him.&nbsp; Once we talked on the phone we locked everything in to make my event happen.&nbsp; So the event I'm planning is called Sang &amp; Play:&nbsp; Yo! Karaoke meets Game Night and it will be March 7th in Rocky Mount, NC.&nbsp; I'm focusing on putting on a great event and not so much the outcome.&nbsp; I don't need 3-400 people to make this event successful, if 75 people come out and have a great time then I'll be happy with that.&nbsp; Expecting a sell out right away is unrealistic, and this isn't a one time event.&nbsp; Having a realistic goal is key, nothing wrong with wanting an event to sell out.&nbsp; Just have to build towards that. &nbsp; My plan moving forward is to create an email database/community separate from social media, I can directly communicate with the new Tr3 Fam crew.&nbsp; With social media it limits how many people actually see your content, only 5-10% of people on your list see your content.&nbsp; Having a direct connection is a more efficient way to building a connection, I can update them on the next event, promote my merchandise, and my YouTube channel.&nbsp; So the key at this point is being consistent, and enjoying the process.&nbsp; Can't wait to update you all next week.&nbsp; Love.

Karaoke. &nbsp; I'm sharing this because I want be transparent on my journey and use my experiences to inspire others to not only go after what they want but make a plan of action of how to make it happen.&nbsp; I'm going to be open about the whole process, the ups and downs of it.&nbsp; I'm not afraid to broadcast my lows, we all go through them.&nbsp; Also I don't want to make $10,000 just to buy a bunch of liabilities either and show them off on social media.&nbsp; I want to create opportunities for others, and I want to use a percentage of my revenue to help my community.&nbsp; This has given me renewed focus and purpose for my businesses (there are 2 more ideas but they're for my social media management agency). &nbsp; So the first step towards making this happen is I'm going to plan my first event, and the reason why i'm focusing on that first is I can use the events to market my other ideas.&nbsp; I'm also creating an email database so I can use my email marketing to promote my YouTube channel, my merchandise, and my digital products.&nbsp; Laying the foundation to put a system in place that can work on it's own while I'm sleeping.&nbsp; I can't wait to update you guys on the next post.&nbsp; Love.

Peace Tr3 Fam, recently after finishing a gig at Duke University I found myself feeling unfulfilled on my journey.&nbsp; The ride home is when I get lost in my thoughts, normally I'm reflecting on the show I just did or I'm thinking about my goals.&nbsp; This time was my mind was on another level, I asked myself why am I settling?&nbsp; When am I going to move on from being the $75-$100 per hour DJ?&nbsp; When am I going to spin at bigger events?&nbsp; &nbsp; Don't get me wrong, I'm very grateful to be able to this for a living full time but there are things I want to accomplish.&nbsp; What could that possibly?&nbsp; I'm already fortunate enough to live off DJing right, man I want to travel the world and share my craft.&nbsp; I want to spin at festivals, inspire people, and make an impact.&nbsp; Great DJs like Khaled has pushed the culture to new levels, and I want to be part of that experience.&nbsp; Now my version of success is going to be different from Khaled's and other great DJs, and that's cool.&nbsp; I want to push the culture to a new level my own way that will still make an impact. &nbsp; Just recently on my podcast I spoke about being specific about what you want out of life, so I'm going to take my own advice and share with you all what I want to accomplish in my DJ career: 1.&nbsp; Lock in residencies with major venues like Hard Rock Cafe, Harrah's,&nbsp; 2.&nbsp; Book festivals and brand events 3.&nbsp; Create residual income 4.&nbsp; Inspire my generation and generations to come.&nbsp;&nbsp;

Peace Tr3 Fam!&nbsp; The first month of 2020 is almost over wow!&nbsp; I always look at January as the foundation month, implement new habits, and tactics that will help you grow.&nbsp; This month has been super productive, I started the home buying process.&nbsp; Summer 2020 I will be a homeowner, I refuse to pay over $1,200 in rent.&nbsp; This year I'm beginning to build equity, without a doubt.&nbsp; I'm documenting the journey and I can't wait to share it with you all.&nbsp; So let's jump into the topic of this post, the true meaning wealth.&nbsp; This was inspired by a post I saw on Instagram and a conversation I had recently so let's jump right in. &nbsp; The definition of wealth is "plentiful supplies of a particular resource" (well that's 1 of the definitions) but one thing I noticed as a culture is we idolize high income earners and the material items they possess.&nbsp; But is that the true meaning of wealth?&nbsp; The crazy thing is we idolize this lifestyle that actual wealthy people don't even live.&nbsp; Don't get me wrong, it's perfectly OK with having nice things.&nbsp; But luxury material items are not a key sign of being wealthy or possessing wealth because at the end of the day it's a liability.&nbsp; Wealth is determined by the assets you possess, so instead of investing in luxury liabilities put your money into income producing assets. &nbsp; The true meaning of wealth is being able to survive without another paycheck, one thing about the high income earners I mentioned in the last paragraph is that when things go left they lose EVERYTHING!&nbsp; That's what happens when you invest heavily in liabilities.&nbsp; There are examples like the Recession in '08 and the Government shutdown in '19 that I hoped would open people's eyes that they need to focus on planning for the future.&nbsp; Nothing lasts forever, so you have to prepare for that.&nbsp; Ask yourself this question, can you survive without another paycheck?&nbsp; What good is creating a luxurious lifestyle that can fall apart after missing just 1 paycheck?152043hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindsetblogs/1-2020/152043-hustle101-djpreneur-s.jpgNo More Living Paycheck To Paycheckhttps://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-361/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-361/Posted by dj3two10https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-361/#commentsThu, 16 Jan 2020 14:30 GMT&nbsp; Happy 2020 Tr3 Fam!&nbsp; First post of the new year so why not talk about a major issue plaguing our community, I'm talking about that dreaded paycheck to paycheck lifestyle.&nbsp; Did you know that roughly 76-78% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck?&nbsp; That's a lot of people, we're talking nearly every person in the US is 1 paycheck away from being homeless.&nbsp; Imagine working 40-50 hours a week just to live check to check, that's frustrating just thinking about it.&nbsp; So what is the solution?&nbsp; Let's talk about it. &nbsp; First solution is changing your mindset and how you view money, if you look at money as a means for survival that's not your fault.&nbsp; That's how you were raised probably, and you've inherited a generational viewpoint of money.&nbsp; I'm sure that viewpoint is "get a job, so you can make money to pay bills."&nbsp; Once you shift your mindset and look at money as a tool that's when things will change.&nbsp; Once I shifted my mindset about money it was like I reached a new level like in a video game.&nbsp; How do you shift your mindset?&nbsp; Read!!&nbsp; You have to feed your brain, when I read Rich Dad Poor Dad that changed how I viewed money tremendously.&nbsp; It's so much information at the palm of your hands, so in 2020 there's no excuse for you to still be living check to check. &nbsp; Another solution is spending habits, I was talking with my mom about money and she said something that resonated with me.&nbsp; Just because you make xyz thousand a month doesn't mean you have to spend that much every month.&nbsp; Get your spending in check and start making better decisions.&nbsp; Don't go and finance a car that's going to cost you $500-$700 a month, then turn around and pay $150 for cable.&nbsp; That's close to a thousand dollars right there (every month!) and that's just for your vehicle and cable, I didn't even factor in rent, phone, and everything else.&nbsp; So check your spending habits, and know where you're money is going. &nbsp; I wanted to have this conversation because I don't want you all to suffer with this check to check lifestyle.&nbsp; I lived it as well and I know how frustrating it can be.&nbsp; A lot of times we live check to check as a result of the decisions we've made, that's why I said let's make better decisions.&nbsp; Bills never stop coming, I know and I feel you.&nbsp; But you can control the number of bills you have each month.&nbsp; I hope this helps you ditch the check to check lifestyle in 2020, love.150494hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindset, goaldigging, minimalismblogs/1-2020/150494-hustle101-djpreneur-s.jpgDealing With Rejection!https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-9862812/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-9862812/Posted by dj3two10https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-9862812/#commentsThu, 12 Dec 2019 14:15 GMT&nbsp; Peace Tr3 Fam!&nbsp; Welcome back to the blog and thank you for taking time out to check out this post.&nbsp; Please tell your friends to download my app, it will add value to their life as I share things I've learned on my journey.&nbsp; I also have merch available at <a href="http://blackvibes.comwww.3two1radio.com/shop" target="_blank">here</a>&nbsp;and make sure you use the promo code to get free shopping.&nbsp; Now that I've got the church announcements out the way, let's get into the topic of rejection!&nbsp; I feel like this is a topic that isn't discussed too often, so I was inspired to share my experiences with rejection and I hope it will help you on your journey. &nbsp; Rejection is never easy to deal with, whether it's someone you have a crush on or a client you're trying to work with for your business.&nbsp; But letting the fear of rejection stop you from going after what you want is flat out insane, first you're letting fear control you and fear is nothing but false events appearing real.&nbsp; Rejection hasn't even happened but the thought of it stops a lot of people from going after what they truly want.&nbsp; PLEASE STOP!&nbsp; Life is too short, and rejection is like failure it's inevitable.&nbsp; You can't avoid it, but it's not the end of the world.&nbsp; When you fail a test in school, you don't flunk for the semester.&nbsp; You have other opportunities to do better.&nbsp; In life you have endless opportunities to keep trying after rejection, so keep shooting your shot! &nbsp; There's a saying in Hollywood that you have to have thick skin due to harsh constructive criticism, it's the same thing in life outside of Hollywood.&nbsp; You can't be in your feelings or sensitive on this journey, once you get that rejection email or no response you've got to move on to the next.&nbsp; When I was selling radio ads on my show I got left on "seen" by multiple people on FB messenger.&nbsp; Now if I were to get in my feelings and upset over those group of people that ignored my message, then I would've missed out on a client that offered to pay me $1,000 for advertising on my show (that went directly to me).&nbsp; So whenever you get rejected, just move on and keep at it.&nbsp; Eventually you'll end up in the right situation. &nbsp; It's time to stop fearing rejection, &amp; it's also time to get out of our feelings whenever you get rejected.&nbsp; It's going to happen, you can't avoid it.&nbsp; Take each rejection as a lesson (yes just like failure) and learn from it.&nbsp; Switch up your approach, practice it until you feel comfortable naturally executing it.&nbsp; 2020 is near and we're moving different in the new decade.&nbsp; Love&nbsp;&nbsp;147159hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindsetblogs/12-2019/147159-hustle101-djpreneur-s.jpgFocus On What You Have!https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-10435612/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-10435612/Posted by dj3two10https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-10435612/#commentsTue, 3 Dec 2019 17:00 GMT&nbsp; Peace Tr3 Fam!&nbsp; Welcome to December!!&nbsp; We made it to the final month of the year wow!&nbsp; One thing I definitely learned in 2019 is focusing on what you have.&nbsp; I'm pretty sure we all can agree that our motivation is based on things we don't have or things we want.&nbsp; More money for instance, or a certain car/truck, etc.&nbsp; So we set goals to go after things we don't possess, which at times create anxiety, stress, being overwhelmed.&nbsp; That also takes the focus off the most important thing in our lives, what we already have. &nbsp; In the technology era there are people that dream of being the next big brand on social media, so there's a need to have "more followers" on social media so people can start their influencer hustle.&nbsp; It's wild what people are doing to get a massive amount of followers on Instagram, buying followers was a ugly trend that I'm glad has died down.&nbsp; But the crazy thing is having a big following on social media doesn't always equate to more money.&nbsp; You'll be surprised at the number of stories out there about people with millions of followers are struggling to get by.&nbsp; I tell people to focus on the followers you do have, because how can you handle 10,000 followers if you've never learned how to handle the 100 followers you have now.&nbsp; How can you expect to monetize your social media with a huge followers if you never made money with a small following?&nbsp; Think about it. &nbsp; It's amazing what we put ourselves through just to go after what we don't have, we go after more money so we can buy material items that add no value in our lives.&nbsp; Only to end up losing it or going broke down the road because we were so driven to go after it we never planned for when things go left.&nbsp; Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with wanting more money, or nice things.&nbsp; But sacrificing our mental well being is where we have to draw the line.&nbsp; Instead focus on what you already have, that will serve as preparation for what's to come.&nbsp; Many desire more money because they believe it will solve their problems, but if you don't know how to manage the money you have now then how can you expect to manage a larger sum?&nbsp; Think about that too lol. &nbsp; This month I want you all to shift your focus on what you have, and be grateful that you possess it.&nbsp; In order to get more money you have to learn how to work with what you have now.&nbsp; In order to grow on social media you need to have an engaging following that love to comment on your posts.&nbsp; All of which you can start doing right now and will be a great way to start a new decade.&nbsp; More importantly be patient!&nbsp; A lot of what creates that stress, anxiety, and being overwhelmed is lack of patience.&nbsp; Things take time to build, and there will be setbacks but learn the lesson from those setbacks and continue on.&nbsp; So shift your focus!&nbsp; Trust me it will be worth it.&nbsp; Love146635hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindsetblogs/12-2019/146635-hustle101-djpreneur-s.jpgDjPreneur Life: Never Give Up!https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-5953711/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-5953711/Posted by dj3two10https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-5953711/#commentsTue, 19 Nov 2019 18:00 GMT&nbsp; Peace Tr3 Fam!&nbsp; Wow 2020 is getting closer and closer, and I get excited around this time because it's like a fresh start is on the horizon.&nbsp; For the first time ever in my life, I have my 2020 goals hanging on my fridge.&nbsp; I believe that if you want something different you have to do what you've never done.&nbsp; I know one thing, I would have never gotten to the point if I had given up on my dreams.&nbsp; Trust me there have been times that I verbally said "I quit" but physically still pushed through.&nbsp; So this post is for those questioning if they should continue on with their passion/dreams.&nbsp; Let's go! <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://vangogh.teespring.com/v3/image/xL2D5bNSkpTpxFZezJauuXx7Y4k/480/560.jpg" title="" /></div> (Yo!

Peace Tr3 Fam!!&nbsp; Well summer is officially over, and it seems like everybody is ready for hoodie szn, holidays, and cold weather (insert eye roll emoji).&nbsp; My plan for the fall is to keep the same energy I had during the summer, booked and busy!&nbsp; So if you're trying to figure out how to reach that level with your hustle, I'll share what I did to have a booked and busy summer.&nbsp; Here's how you can be booked and busy for the fall 2k19! &nbsp; My previous post about getting that first client or that first paying gig will come from someone you know, and that's how I was able to be booked and busy this past summer.&nbsp; Majority of the gigs I was booked to DJ was from relationships I've built with different people.&nbsp; In August I was booked to DJ an event for the business students at Duke, and I was able to DJ that event because of a relationship I've developed with one person and she passed my info along.&nbsp; I know we're in the social media era but word of mouth is still a very effective marketing tool.&nbsp; So get out there and network! <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/70271569_2402511886501304_1975471973026758656_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_oc=AQlZ38c3FVsMoHWKQ2Y7pf1DfHVk25j_ByNuATQwr0KPrQJNZlfHJ2Qd5bW0vWRPiYydJEiGq8SScnHHN11pnOcp&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=39ae19e452f7a003b9c0956ced729de4&oe=5DF0435E" title="" /></div> (Creating the vibe at the rooftop pool) &nbsp; When you get booked make sure you GO IN!&nbsp; Make your performance memorable like when the Cavs came back from 3-1 to beat the Warriors 3 years ago in the Finals.&nbsp; That's how you gain repeat customers and get booked again.&nbsp; You never know who's watching or who else that client knows so you have to perform like that booking is the end all be all.&nbsp; Even if it's an unpaid gig/service still give it your all, that will lead to a paid situation if you play your cards right. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.15752-9/70450614_457968358134230_6279931829650718720_n.jpg?_nc_cat=107&_nc_oc=AQm6gWHyydYY9JYb7wEz_OMeeFhjaVIh7ajojMz-ocRPF_6np1ujdG_92I4mjLpw_FF0vgdfyDC7nfiy65hLbQTD&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=3f7ba29345606e0140c5bc601a10354a&oe=5DF0C92B" title="" /></div> (Performing at YoKaraoke) &nbsp; I was only to give 2 tips but I'll leave you with a bonus and that is fulfilling a need or solving a problem in the marketplace will also play a role in being booked and busy.&nbsp; With YoKaraoke I was solving an entertainment problem in the area I was in, and that lead me to getting booked in spaces I would not have gotten booked at as just a DJ.&nbsp; So build relationships, and perform well when you get that opportunity.&nbsp; You will be booked and busy this fall.&nbsp; Love139795hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindset, goaldiggingblogs/9-2019/139795-hustle101-djpreneur-s.jpgDJPreneur Life: Standing Out on Social Mediahttps://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-1966159/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-1966159/Posted by dj3two10https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-1966159/#commentsWed, 11 Sep 2019 21:35 GMT&nbsp; Peace Tr3 Fam!&nbsp; Let's talk social media, after all we are in the social media era.&nbsp; It's so crazy how social media platforms have grown within the last 5 years.&nbsp; Platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram have billions of users monthly, it's very easily accessible.&nbsp; Social media has also made a lot of people a nice sum of money along the way, so how can you get tapped in and generate money using social media?&nbsp; Let's talk about it! <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/45376321_1920413174711180_4602958030701592576_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_oc=AQm82k2go9Gdt_0oNs6n3aqQHEnpdqlEGgM8r4o96dlVxGeDdWEqZcrw57D5xu6V8thPdyi11RXxfI8X3vtY3H6z&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=c5421239469c2284023ec43617e0a585&oe=5E1068CF" title="" /></div> (In Vegas scrolling on IG) &nbsp; When people think about making money using social media they believe they need a large amount of followers, and in some cases yes that does help.&nbsp; But you can leverage your social media account if you have 100 followers and make money.&nbsp; The key is having a following that genuinely rock with you.&nbsp; For example you're a fitness trainer and you put out a workout and meal plan ebook to your 100 active followers.&nbsp; If 100 people pay $10 or $20 for your ebook, you just made 1-2k without having to invest hardly any money.&nbsp; Focus on the people you have now and your following will grow. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/69926595_10101603559326712_9223048926465097728_n.jpg?_nc_cat=110&_nc_oc=AQlk3UuqptzvRVoNtfUgJKNM9yIBNIftTuIv3We-Bvt4ao1Ea4VbgcLuopY0Kz5s7QgChDYaqdSavy3KzTp9urd-&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=a48540a9c7d770b3eac93b84748ea62f&oe=5DFA4CFA" title="" /></div> (My FB friend Tip uses FB to hustle her meal plans) &nbsp; Another key to success on social media is not just great selfies when you hit the right angle, you have to create video content!&nbsp; Video content is how YoKaraoke became a fun brand online, and every video I posted was recorded on my phone.&nbsp; So you don't need fancy camera equipment or editing software.&nbsp; I use Filmora to edit my content and then it gives me the option to share it to social media.&nbsp; I would consistently do this and that's what helped YoKaraoke grow and obtain new clients. &nbsp; The key to standing out on social media is focusing on the people you have following you, whether it's 75 people or 2,000 people.&nbsp; Engage with them, serve them, once you develop that trust with them they'll support you.&nbsp; Just be sure you have products they can use and it's something they need.&nbsp; Look at them as your family instead of followers, that's another way to create that family bond with them.&nbsp; Recently I just started calling my social media fam Tr3 Fam, because I look at them as my cousins.&nbsp; Consistently create video content, incorporate that into your strategy.&nbsp; Video content is the wave so definitely get on that wave.&nbsp; I hope my keys help, and I'm wishing you massive success on your journey!&nbsp;

Peace family!&nbsp; I know I''ve been slack with my blog posts but recently I needed time to figure out my purpose with blogging and vlogging.&nbsp; I had to really focus on what my why is for stepping into this realm, and I''ll share that with you all on another post.&nbsp; After take a short break from traveling I got back on the road and took a trip to Atlantic City for the annual DJ Expo 2019.&nbsp; This year definitely did not disappoint, and by the end of the post I want you to start looking at attending an Expo or conference in your field.&nbsp; It's a great investment and I''ll show you why.&nbsp; Let''s go! <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/z98LxpocSZwXFxPuYgmS-Awddd1JKbESCTun7cn2-ZF9FSbTnqlnTf-M0ZVtCZQOPn9bC5uIMnyO9oGjwcX5qD58RGgEnL0Kj6RVVcG-Z50L-OcV5F_1DCU2ync4Q252qo25lEb7e36WNjpI-aC2uc9hSEDp0czc_vOBNUSDLt_zNBwVjoeXRMgIfwcKdwl4F2zSa0cCfJuipphesexqBmGyGhrkm9o_2n6q6lCG7D8SS_VaxLOflK3J4TY762cfa6uMf3pgNY0IBa-vGMxpwbRnpTX0MUwU3Q3_GXlcEFQh_uieApG131ppiqHMPCkxegurXSHeeSQUkqrPDRzxPi4brmDR-Dqmjw8Kzd36E1K1h2MmRebsqvTiH0Zi293CVCoFmx5jXuaFaxA_vU2UDS7PbMe7mkb4SMtY5z8Ou8m8L_2M4qfPheaSr5U9oBSXb9HEhlnp3u0zLwqhG7NHfMl7c0XaLAWXl7yEAbXkZCGQOkinWJ2_43JPnFXfgAzAHw8s6uWP6KqctpDbsYyB_7UaFVlhy5FQLOShpVq3py1BNwaF9utieBEAUZUlFaFXKLR4C-O0a6ArrWgDeYKxzCZRCP4_4JpkzJtogtjy7wd8vEXdBJ0o8slpwTHXXTMYa8iDsgEfbfncKGbR6Dve8jEeNUvGm85giZJCRigYOstUYZa5YE3eZgni=w544-h876-no" title="" /></div> &nbsp; What is the DJ Expo?&nbsp; It's an annual event where DJs from all over come to Atlantic City to attend different seminars and events that can help grow their DJ brand/business.&nbsp; We can also test out new toys (equipment) that''s coming out.&nbsp; It''s always good to know what's coming down the pipeline when it comes to new equipment and new business tactics, that can help you grow and position your brand as the go to person in your market. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/MXOG-msZ9kjjCxnbdDVbAWL12ti_BgaCieU50tXZtVZXRRgPNuAO7Axj4rEYYaCSZC3jBuz7VSCGO1GgQutbCvvUrdYjwKWvwE2M6c-4x-EnxXRVp-sC_335qWAgm9_HttDPGf3kLw9LlPnvNodvw-i6DLt9QPp0xzjyd-81UYX_zDXoGfh9gxPWRV7P6skvbGUGnvOBlpszVZ51xLTnnp036iORRlelV546WwdjG5Z_7YUaRxOPYmsIeoYsYfhkGLOiom_vkqbPBKaaAzwg0Vwcfjd6afiqHQzsYzCEeENSjayxT3JhiMs9sWQlCfhO29EhPqhPEkRjSM4ddYtgI65gvMu0mcRziglZyc_AqV8bZQB5nVOvwerC0PLTbdZObqSwMCHyUJryQQ3I5s3Yh3m3ix_pYP41HfrSGcOyyiYjnLGfVDAsfbSSh02qxXjZdPfpzWg2oSRFeHxO8qLGlN9UAm0v7fmLDFrD2pjU85xloVKcGGmFHGaT3VYBGkaMzL6KkeDlQDdY7ilO_sEd4uRti6F3dIBP-eLt4ShWxvqc-Q6We3joeLbYu4XFvpsoQi24CuyyZZwXgc_Qz4d3y1H124KWAOVAd0SolpeDF-Ivfuuxd3YFjrBPLlxmyRVGvt8TDnzR6rH3a9LoB6RJPnPK14zHmY90dfBkaep-K4_HPEKc32260c6w=w657-h876-no" title="" /></div> This year I sat in the some of the seminars and learn some new tactics that I can incorporate into what I''m doing, and it''s good to be able to soak in that knowledge from successful djs.&nbsp; They highlighted certain tactics I wasn't doing, and hadn't thought about doing.&nbsp; That one tactic I decided to implement could be the one move that explodes my brand, that''s what these events are designed for.&nbsp; We''re all 1 idea away from changing our lives, and that 1 idea could come from something you got from attending a seminar. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/7DsUym3QYhmoItkXveUHCRAaEbEud9LMDWkJ0JikFWO5hr4Qc2Bk3ZYvA4FcwBdO3PIWuFs-Ax6rFEnajyDosdTK1iVVKK7qyQU5nBMFhkoU-u5iwk_lSGiAPq8OWtu5wBcLG87dducLBg3TmeCXv7wkpxe1pGonC7c95Jmcj5dmEe3FiUtdVwD-RmH-LlbvNMYeNtTXm_frKfSz4Y-GQbVKgyNHwF2GiA-187TguM42jZZeB_kxo_vfc5-WfS4XrjZbG2cF7ZoznqJ_RnUXEa43Ccn7umQYXxcSVaKCmHONYZSPju0YKCUKfph5Xc1h7lnupPPhZG9Ll0KM7uAS-lWIVNCTObdZ0emw2fma-aVEHsDshWNEwiaHVkjsOqGP5TY1LFVf8pdYXOxob2TndHBVjFVC9Ohc1E7qG7VrE3-puEEqiqlQ1BwaGbL3cGO1kUGTGUS0XcIpX_fciT_332UrY5MhlYo1AGUnyoTnEUcUm0y-vBUz7qYbQKwaPd_PIVKkpslCH9Gd8eF-vAljvyMy7Ol7GvH3mtgmhTELhM-_eWVS-m9pULyyRc4qp9_TySyaoyIqtp_hmhyoYpYnQLdvGqjFxM6y1djuLnPPuqddFlml2lX1z7zpaQgqgD4rIeMV3Hfk5xkSFA3VrEB-iby1ff3Mn2TGMq8nrp5nUjCAR5Lu0L2aLZQO=w418-h876-no" title="" /></div> The DJ Expo had me excited, pumped up, and anxious to get back home to get back to work!&nbsp;

Being around new energy and in the presence of successful DJs raises your energy.&nbsp; So for 2020 plan to hit a expo or 2, go in with an open mind and willingness to learn new information.&nbsp; Get around new energy and watch how things change for the better.&nbsp;

Peace family!&nbsp; I hope summer 19 has been good to you thus far, I had a slow June but July has been boomin boomin!&nbsp; I wanted to share a recent experience with you that needs to be discussed.&nbsp; So this entry won't have any pics like the previous entries, but hopefully it will spark a change within you. &nbsp; Earlier this week I met with a financial adviser to discuss my financial future and come up with an investment plan, I had a plan in place but to go to the next level I knew I needed some guidance of a professional.&nbsp; This is something majority of the black community doesn't participate in for some reason, which is why I'm blogging about it.&nbsp; There could be a number of reasons why my fellow black people don't have a money plan in place, so I'm not going to assume or generalize.&nbsp; I just knew I didn't want to be like the majority, and I also wanted to be an example my community can look to if they want to make a change. &nbsp; Here's the investment plan I put in place with the financial adviser, I'm starting with $100 a month with $50 of it going into the Roth IRA I just opened up, $22 going to my life insurance, &amp; $25 into a raining day fund.&nbsp; Simple right?&nbsp; Also inexpensive too, I waste $100 a month eating out so this will help me cut back.&nbsp; Look at your bank statement and calculate those misc charges and eating out charges.&nbsp; You could take that money and invest it in a high yielding account, you don't need much to start.&nbsp; With my mutual fund I started with $50 a month, then I switched it to $50 quarterly.&nbsp; Now I'm going to switch it back to monthly so I have $50 going into my Roth and $50 going into my mutual fund. &nbsp; I hope this post inspires you to change your outlook on your finances, I hope you begin to plan for your future so you won't have to keep working while you're 60 or 70 years old.&nbsp; Change starts with us individually, and we as black people have to change our relationship with money.&nbsp; I encourage you to sit down with a financial adviser, take control of your life and your future.&nbsp; Change starts now.&nbsp; Love.134425hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindset, goaldigging, minimalismblogs/7-2019/134425-dj3two1-hustle101--s.jpgJuly 1st 2016https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-239437/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-239437/Posted by dj3two10https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/dj3two1-hustle101-djpreneur-entrepreneur-239437/#commentsMon, 1 Jul 2019 20:20 GMT&nbsp;&nbsp;Peace family!&nbsp; Today is a very special day, 3 years ago today I started my entrepreneur journey.&nbsp; July 1, 2016 was a fresh start to a new beginning, it was the day where I no longer have to rely on a bi-weekly check, have a boss dictating my livelihood, I was completely free and in control of my life.&nbsp; But this journey wouldn't be possible if it weren't for 2 people in my circle. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/13516168_10154208833992435_6188230992958949988_n.jpg?_nc_cat=107&_nc_oc=AQnWTfC2Y_-ePFzmkv90IGs39LGoL912vc6YGNHSBu0uBX7EbYDQ_XYfAPDdN5c4Sh9e7xC_za-krwLZZx558uSE&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=82934e38e12c118b09115e66e5000371&oe=5D848F49" title="" /></div> &nbsp;&nbsp;Back in February 2016 I was having a convo with my Program Director/friend at 99.5 Jamz CJ (he gave me my first job in commercial radio), and in the middle of the convo he tells me to leave the station at the end of July.&nbsp; I was against the idea, and he was adamant about it. Telling me to figure things out after I quit, of course I was still against it because I let being fearful hold me back. CJ put it in the universe for me, if that conversation never took place I believe things would've played out differently.&nbsp; Thank you CJ.<div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/1531783_10152083455472435_1704947856_n.jpg?_nc_cat=103&_nc_oc=AQkq6o7kO14I_b2Vvw2oI6gmXWNhVwxJTK3aIYibUuCm49qhDtGyIa5AOz75cMZzwcLoindVVGqOYO9T6ToKQ3v2&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=3f2765d1631176ca42440edc9121b821&oe=5DB9DDF7" title="" /></div> &nbsp;&nbsp;Fast forward to April 2016 my fellow Dj brother Dj Reggie Marcus (on the left in the pic below) held down a weekly residency at this spot called Cam's in Goldsboro, NC.&nbsp; He was preparing to move out of state and reached out to me to take over his residency after he leaves NC. This residency put me in a position where I was bringing in between $600-$800 a week, I was able to build up my savings account in the process.&nbsp; After a month of DJing at Cam's I put in my resignation letter to 99.5 Jamz. Without Reggie I don't even know if I would've walked away from my job, Thank you Reggie. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/jyVs0JIh5UNvmJhjWQ7tXGkeoX468oOQ82tlQrWvb3RUFcol5VDKly3V6v-gcZgMHdpLJvjz81ndzdZ9AWqQf3kOP_eTc1wb9BROk2hLmgM6S5smaauhaZLueGLHyNSR9UvC5VlJ9D9J2CDfwjFcrpT0WDFNpYbq7Cb8JR1wr4M82WLpGUeR5HxT9ZG5dhcExG9WiOuOwmwD18H-d4JDsJ_c73QdhnLxW1mtPec_Mql0mZRkTFta15aMDzTMSSUQglxsWCmgunZOI-e9P2dAtnjC8XaIaiY23JXokv539fjBY1LpC2XagJKHQWvnW2SSzYUaEkfcSMXgyZy8fH6w45sQ7VCx4OiWJLO1u4x30DLZs6FIamqRFpg-PAPzijbLsl16uRaPWJqJn_NAXtz7BSRIiM5DxV9TT0LtS0TBF2g-lIaeVQnfJOJ320ffqxRiw34L94rF1n3-_Yo13qVfevZiO3Qvl5-T4j8hfuzDfH25xuiCe5o0IemJ4roparyZBDrNBvBMPZyZVT8H4RsKMFW0UhV1uAwLwgn_-7rI4aU-k3kWjhWnTM-vRVMyoVa6cQXe5XAG3uFQTqCawoBQQfubVKr7K5kR1oLERfwD5c0vw1bjKKZ8jA7Q84xMcsqpKVwS7Fl2fgtc4RN9JUHWs5T2NIBz1Tw=w609-h811-no" title="" /></div> &nbsp;&nbsp;Without Cj &amp; Reggie my journey would've played out differently for sure, but what I want you all to get from my story is your circle is very important to your growth.&nbsp; 2 people in my circle played a huge role in me becoming a full time entrepreneur.

Also 3 weeks into 2019 I took my first trip of the year to Orlando, Florida to hit up Universal Studios and Disney World. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/EoXSNe_ka9mws2Hs35IIqYUdeLSx-NIQ04um2HkZSzxrOYQM0Nvz7FUu7RR12LxqAgolOT4IOBek4hH4PKl4p2m5O7JirD1Esl3BTaJ9BG6NGVr1FYiCGyU0wI4ymffbW-QEavzT8D_iRFu6cLmYzN0Z88PFzKZxLWbQ0lMC4x4U8jms0mtWCY1ybjpzb7xDeEX1gTew6It_-kslZ1Fc1YrniZrqtTdRAKc0A6rj6PMMNIsWIfHAMFnepfrHpuOT5yFkURV6RCC3lrTFbgq5Al7haGuzoLK4zan1xcRIZBjsFMeikLWWvzOTUqqD3BnrJz_p-fU49H_WFGcpQB_J3EtNB0Utp-SdbnFRJ27SDX6UntCJza44y6EeOYNqipBf47zYyawzUVD584OMzzky8xaOMdf8GMfjoY_rSIgZw353xSstbALUiIdwp3woTfHQw7kQ9pJITQhSf4sXLeIJgiibT-dAEKJwes7DXJJfm2Bzz8i4OGDuKO1Xv4x6Mc_5KGxOlYHYbWarDjkAWB4iAYTpe8ACd3x8H9RzTf8Dx0QHdAX0Ps1zA3KDYCWrnnt5Fa_Kl5IsrBZ_GyGrhfiHKMMwnp5qO2p3wpOJm3b12t2AfB_Z9eu9CbNlbL0OOmRkWPiWgioWdDV3CAcko24dwsZmbM4eTmX2=w323-h676-no" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/8evnuK0KIzLXapqRiwlEwuUHPuBEBU1nhErjSrKm5thQwP0dUV7FLaRdSeOavZS9IUZpyrkC4wTGdjgfi5g6XXyChcYfmsr0sF2j2UGJRroEtKrI420eUD9zILWUbHI58cYFdXxQ7TQ0B_eE-6Z77pYLsbaRpEgGI4Vi22BNSlhWxnHEeMkCbetnmBvsfd5d9bVM6NphqivEGJVeWDxhNoHTD-G7NPzr2OqxqVMBTKSl59VkN7aBfSS-GQVTvs_QtMQ0bUSPEiKgxjNETIXO2GPenvwy0gPuTzivQAvQGkN6BHjWdJSfm9DK59K9uYHHaN5Dbz5C11-sogarMDGMuqBH_VH4pX_3P_2EN4dpCwdCfblxOYyMzJm-EpuAaRzB7yN6BfbhXStMpecsooFyo2OofWbX1qTHaYyXBKxFGAbLGTjjlkxpuknURLTM6GUFViLbyDV9Cxf066nHNQrhXHR__kmvuuNQJbSd-XBsLwCCqchQCgnSf3xYhki6t0lM63Y4k5-QOlEue-ppbvhzK-0MPzZzp7-yWqfR5P_TWh8RSdQRLE65bxnwuneIlNN0H9NNkOtBQhT8RmHuaA1N0_W6lpTCGqi3dUcDENs3RoS4LiwMIqWksrKELJo6MavedjPBrXwv2zCLrDjRUF5xUYA9pI4Tx_1p=w323-h676-no" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image4"><img id="bvimg4" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/GqMvTKEMOHTWT2bHEYfptP3vegMo_iTjfjBUrtkiXqMVI0MVhJnQDJKuOZ9wvrh7nK80Gm7FuKmPLqi35aYtRBTVfHQWSvDo6x-R89JhjeUNEYuLqLnTW4j_R_grK9MFsKgFGp76oJY6mle-oQs0MPtXkj8iFCLtjijnXWhHl4mbIn1oReW0YNgJxLEwSgNnaY4jnSkEbsO5Pl_fqef96lc4_PZ5&#45;&#45;YASKcvvzKmxwivIF0I0xZR7DVwle_Asu_a82My9wfED8W2TVcxN1ioaJwl_L9H8jj3IdM9cGXK-GUMwwDDrV5Z6cLxnAAxBcXeYnny5ISB3UUdMBB2CjX7lBaLrQsmmPvk9o7DSpSAkQkhsmYg7UwdEmq1QB53kbRYd84pyIp7FIYNRDeHXkLss7uaJz6-sKGMYz-QNg2w9pblw3IGyeMH75K6ZXGUr5uqAD1dDo-wwmKH_4kkg50_4SJIEQ82LKkgVPN34F3TqvEmCGfLt8RPi-pAm8OL-9nGoGUsg3RPD5TAWvr_qmeWsR602dvXbm1H15j0cInmZ0PQq0zCiy9jUclerZeMweSa-veBgKjPmQIqTtmOhSSq7KSyiq6SN2Q3OLYxFRC89HkkIKwr6OVK95449by2v-OkIqi3t4L1SUnl36z3uaKaaIxPtcKRKHgdPiU1FuXYruPRCDqTxKx-6UltwvmEt2Fw7voe5C31lxyNryyUJuvJyC2Hmw=w507-h676-no" title="" /></div> &nbsp; YoKaraoke has grown to another level this year as well, making it's debut in Greenville, NC with a different format (concert style), and it was lit!!&nbsp; Actually the event was called Lit Karaoke, and it definitely lived up to the name.&nbsp; YoKaraoke had created opportunities I don't think I would've had come my way at all.&nbsp; I was traveling to 5 cities every month, and partnering with major brands like Fat Tuesdays is something I never would've experienced as a DJ.&nbsp;&nbsp;

As I mentioned before I've taken some losses this year, losing Fat Tuesday as a client (still not sure why), getting a rejection email from a potential client I was working on for 11 months to do karaoke, losing both radio stations I was syndicated on with 3two1Radio.&nbsp; Changes are inevitable and will happen regardless if you're ready or not.&nbsp; If you stay ready you won't have to get ready, so I always prepare for the unexpected.&nbsp; On the flip side I've locked into new clients for karaoke, started a social media management &amp; advertising agency which has generated income within 2 weeks of starting it.&nbsp; Also after visiting Orlando I was able to hit up Vegas again! <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image8"><img id="bvimg8" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/SCDQMhZlkhNzPYNPNle9iZ1ZjcrW3PR9L9ch5QPUEYtn2KIpJw0bZtUSPQ9iKFYNRqOk36QvdtMqKMW4PM9ro-x8HI7FUxyumHny9F5vtw6tiq0KjQNo_6iUMr5-k36SYMbzbfAsEelrqzwDDjwQtAOuFvyABB6_BRqux3YRIwOJTQMi3ExjZHg4CtjXNr0u78eAKpMISU8bFh-kt2zdmshw8hVJdpBiN19QClRpSzAPwrfD07WEgpzZBGzqqLDBJgeJyv71ttnYbvMNwGInqsjKGTJUE79w27wvmXMC_a704j9TDVr_6gNo3LDgPXGym1XxUo2XfQipixEoJDLBk49hcQ0aFESqBmL0qyMDDlklYTx5xwDcoPJvYB8-O-eBNdwDNezm68H4EVVsVo5aF5mFAKrCJPGyumNPuO8wEmHLSq1wNB5C9uFnMgqF1w_J0DpGa1PiswxvxEPhem8Epadc1nRZ6dz0_87M4dsOTitKpvXVqJvzrd8bwizpUEGG1dvig0sOHBgueThpSol1Qe7VrONHUJQGrulnbrcPWI88JbFiLJCuAQFd8quy4yZr_Qk13a0M-LE7pAwXKALKOwCUD8RbEYhXKqCVeTvvRJgNJZAdQBVIq89RKC8K3dm0O6FwICHq3YVkihNx6HgnGw6uxJ8bSP6I=w323-h676-no" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image9"><img id="bvimg9" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/V6zM9K7Yw8Lx85kbrxoT5Nfs97xMksAH4L5Kt-HMOklb0mxI9LSbpX84OsET12YuSrYCVzByf4whPyJEYAYXD_Cd7UUQuijorP5mHZeg30px0pzRxY6-SZ4DYNVuGZ0z8dF0toSVf3cncpOOUvqCbNo9rUYKEIQskZtd4hrJUsEsXfnRCHQu1rP_Mv3FSKCHSBF4pC0NejGeiYHp5ejRkWuy1REu5LJzyZE0uTaU0bmKAOwb4WxJkC43p4CP2dxyfVMmpSMU8wanKNStptdu64L3w7Ezzd6jd4v4gLveWLPkLdi0YnucqWWCSwH1-ELuaPWpALXJBqJh6Wh_tuPXhuXXIbGozFxyHulp11tA5FXctC6453qKfGBwui4P7FY_WCXD0N6uFYLGqvd2XRS3r70RHKtY7oZDOWWQfqo8pw5D2Oc8iHy_u7FowjP0m5wzt2TwuetNPNgQ8riit0aB-qEEgIKLOacd53SAs9yJ0GUXHZEMPII4GFo7PheLz6cNHkC1_z7Tt0lrx5nOsGEMuTSWaNt4JV2ztRxsekOZPhLgj3blv7CAeTnyYmnluTcOSl3NeUsehMcm6npNDIJRhxbNHlXXKwSd5AEGQdnetA9gfkp7k2fi695dPgh_5-nvmdJI0jC1g3VR4TTrXWBlXx4fFsY7OrMM=w323-h676-no" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image10"><img id="bvimg10" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/G9AtiaFqS8zkBMTFzDvgx1sqk8pZ_kzSrw6hezafhPIik-QnVmWmQSfk_MOMUQRSLqCNi4JMKNaWUADedA2jr2HJUV8YWQ2n56P_YpDczGT67zwz-JJeSTiU9OZCQmFXy7zg33KfBjZ9FNvz916fZ1NFpe7tVGOuelJgSFJbZlxQslu7dTkVfYvPW1WOvakP7RneJEMIs9Cf8patfjsEKCXA60Uhpl_-hrROzAJbJslddnnT1hxutc162ibqOf6K0F0zX14MazX_0fbwlrZPG-xPFXTjJh8ixePMlXvY23wquxSBU4c50jF6KrawD5I28AHokHM9tekI0V5qmHoDM-21Bt6TzS9-MSBzp2hJb1IuMvy7A8Cqfe1qr4ZMQZ5bogxoT8vNIqC8RTJxWke3LY5XZKAM1FytpVhTAqS7DEH1ma6ypJoQAUlQ-y49yatea-eI-Q3gXHCRxU6BkkO6yhfAZHTMFZjhExgsUlfZ17WG0mcn8HNQwnh-F5VFtQeHCb0NPEFxMmkDl2b1pcI6bQokuoBz2iXaoJArMkqgOL9vP12yJCNk5bIjA65_QRov_in2_3eKVYGsLEEG58t1feDzRMObyNPwxN691OyLhLpefPbogBZ85XILtITzy15pyrHb-eLm_1NtsJgwTWb8p2e56s0jtTSL=w323-h676-no" title="" /></div> 130497hustle101, djpreneur, entrepreneur, winning mindset, goaldigging, travel, Las Vegas, Orlando,blogs/6-2019/130497-hustle101-djpreneur-s.jpg
