Early mornings or late nights?
I’m a DJ so it’s late nights for me. I feel like I get my best ideas then as well.
What is one thing you will never sacrifice?
My peace. That’s one thing I refuse to give up for anything.
How do you work with goals?
Goals are an important part of my daily routine. I set myself goals yearly, monthly and weekly. I also have my vision board as the screensaver as my phone as a constant reminder to stay focused.
What is one quote or mantra which you say to yourself?
It’s very simple but ‘You’ve got this’. I say it to myself a good few times every day, it’s the quickest pep talk ever and has helped me in so many situations.
What is one part of your profession which you don’t like it but you do it anyway?
Social media is not my favourite thing. I wouldn’t say I don’t like it but it’s the part I like the least. Sometimes I just want to be about the music and in the moment but then I’m thinking ‘oh, I have to get some content of this for Instagram’. Saying that, especially over the last year, social media has been a great way to network and collaborate with artists, do livestreams and just stay connected so it’s not all bad.
What is serenity to you?
Practicing gratitude daily, praying and trusting the process.
