[00:00:43],270 –> [00:00:46],720
let’s get started by giving our audience
a brief background of yourself

10
[00:00:47],290 –> [00:00:52],600

I’m a systems administrator and by
passion I’m a DJ / producer and I guess

[00:01:03],940 –> [00:01:08],140
serial entrepreneur i have work from
home I still you know work the day job

14
[00:01:08],140 –> [00:01:14],740
and my my eventual goal is to quit the
day job and to be you know but pursuing

15
[00:01:14],740 –> [00:01:19],240
my own passions full time I run away
like you said passionate DJ dot-com

16
[00:01:19],240 –> [00:01:24],369
which is a blog and podcast about
becoming a better DJ through passion and

17
[00:01:24],370 –> [00:01:29],650
purpose i also am working on couple
other business ideas

18
[00:01:30],490 –> [00:01:35],770
Stacy and I are working on a amazon
reseller business working on some

19
[00:01:35],770 –> [00:01:40],660
software geared towards managing animal
rescues and then of course just my my

20
[00:01:40],660 –> [00:01:45],729
own djing and an event promotion so I’ve
got my hands and all kinds of little

21
[00:01:45],730 –> [00:01:50],890
baskets and and tried trying to do
probably too much at once but I think

22
[00:01:50],890 –> [00:01:54],970
that’s for me that’s what it’s all about
is i just i like i like the climb and I

23
[00:01:54],970 –> [00:01:59],500
like pursuing my my passions and dreams
and and trying to get where I’m going I

24
[00:01:59],500 –> [00:02:03],520
grew up here in Dayton Ohio to two
wonderful parents who are still together

25
[00:02:03],520 –> [00:02:09],519
there on the oldest of six siblings so
we had grew up in a pretty full house

26
[00:02:09],519 –> [00:02:13],599
outside of that event promotion
marketing there are some of my interests

27
[00:02:13],599 –> [00:02:18],190
my mom into cars I’ve got the Trans Am
2000 trains and that i think are on

28
[00:02:18],190 –> [00:02:21],280
little bit of video gaming and anything
technology

29
[00:02:21],280 –> [00:02:26],170
those are all the things i’m i’m pretty
much stoked about well what-what exactly

30
[00:02:26],170 –> [00:02:30],69
inspires you to be a 12 pretty one

31
[00:02:30],69 –> [00:02:34],369
sir preneur as i said that right yeah
yeah

32
[00:02:34],370 –> [00:02:39],560
I’ve always wanted I’ve always kind of
had that drive 22 want to run my own

33
[00:02:39],560 –> [00:02:45],560
business or or project of some sort it
started back when I was in high school

34
[00:02:45],560 –> [00:02:49],370
a buddy of mine and I actually the guy
who’s working on the animal rescue

35
[00:02:49],370 –> [00:02:50],720
project with me

36
[00:02:50],720 –> [00:02:56],299
we started a local automotive community
type website before Facebook and MySpace

37
[00:02:56],299 –> [00:03:02],540
and social media took off we’d built up
a reasonably well visited forum and did

38
[00:03:02],540 –> [00:03:07],280
events like crusens and and things like
that and I think that’s probably what

39
[00:03:07],280 –> [00:03:10],879
really got me hooked on it because I
enjoyed you know even though it wasn’t

40
[00:03:10],879 –> [00:03:15],108
anything that was my bread-and-butter
that was depending on my enjoyed kind of

41
[00:03:15],109 –> [00:03:18],950
putting these systems in place and
managing the whole you know the small

42
[00:03:18],950 –> [00:03:24],78
Empire i guess and it was it was one of
those things where I came to the

43
[00:03:24],79 –> [00:03:29],239
realization that people were or
benefiting from the value I could

44
[00:03:29],239 –> [00:03:34],129
provide them rather than necessarily the
time i spent working on something as

45
[00:03:34],129 –> [00:03:38],510
with a day job and that is what kind of
got me thinking about you know i would

46
[00:03:38],510 –> [00:03:42],560
rather get paid for my value instead of
my time so how can i make that happen

47
[00:03:42],560 –> [00:03:46],190
so that’s kind of how it is has guided
me this way well that that kind of

48
[00:03:46],190 –> [00:03:50],750
answers the question how did your dream
come about but let’s let specifically go

49
[00:03:50],750 –> [00:03:55],129
into djing and then how passionate DJ
came about

50
[00:03:55],760 –> [00:04:00],349
sure well obviously it starts with the
music I mean meet music is is my therapy

51
[00:04:00],349 –> [00:04:05],149
it’s it’s what keeps me saying when I’m
you know trying to do way too many

52
[00:04:05],150 –> [00:04:09],139
things that wants its it’s not my reason
for living but it’s damn high up on the

53
[00:04:09],139 –> [00:04:15],560
list i mean i’m at i was born into a
musical family might father sings and

54
[00:04:15],560 –> [00:04:20],810
plays tenor sax and you know both my
parents were in the church choir growing

55
[00:04:20],810 –> [00:04:25],220
up and so I would sit in on their
practices and I would hear them do you

56
[00:04:25],220 –> [00:04:28],699
know they would sing alto part then they
were singing soprano part in the tenor

57
[00:04:28],699 –> [00:04:32],449
part and I started putting all these
pieces together it as far as how that

58
[00:04:32],449 –> [00:04:37],190
all worked and ended up taking piano
lessons and that led to me doing

59
[00:04:37],190 –> [00:04:41],660
producing which led to djing which led
to me wanting to tell others about it so

60
[00:04:41],660 –> [00:04:47],719
I i decided that i wanted to kind of a
perfect storm of me wanting to try

61
[00:04:47],719 –> [00:04:53],479
things to get to have new pursuits and
and I wanted to break away from the

62
[00:04:53],479 –> [00:04:58],669
routine i wanted to do something new and
I wanted to find ways that I could gain

63
[00:04:58],669 –> [00:05:04],520
independence financially and it just as
far as my time goes and so passionate DJ

64
[00:05:04],520 –> [00:05:09],49
came about as a kind of an experiment
the beginning of last year basically

65
[00:05:09],50 –> [00:05:13],760
what happened was the the actual phrase
that I said was I want to make my

66
[00:05:13],760 –> [00:05:19],340
thirties awesome and I turned 30 and sep
tember last year so that was kind of

67
[00:05:19],340 –> [00:05:20],330
where it started

68
[00:05:20],330 –> [00:05:24],919
so I’m like okay what what can I do that
is going to maintain my interest long

69
[00:05:24],919 –> [00:05:28],219
enough to really drive something home
because i hadn’t taken on a big project

70
[00:05:28],219 –> [00:05:33],110
like this in a long time and so I
basically did a kind of mind map

71
[00:05:33],110 –> [00:05:37],700
exercise where I wrote out like seven of
my i think it was seven fears seven

72
[00:05:37],700 –> [00:05:41],990
passions and and something else i can’t
remember exactly and and the one thing

73
[00:05:41],990 –> [00:05:45],409
that just kept coming back up is is
djing you know is the one thing that i

74
[00:05:45],409 –> [00:05:49],400
knew that i could write about all the
time and not get tired of it and one

75
[00:05:49],400 –> [00:05:53],659
thing i’m just really interested doing
and felt that I had enough valuable

76
[00:05:53],659 –> [00:05:57],440
information to share with other people
so it started as an experiment you know

77
[00:05:57],440 –> [00:06:00],169
can I build traffic can I build a fan
base

78
[00:06:00],169 –> [00:06:04],10
can I provide value to people will they
will they pick up what I’m putting down

79
[00:06:04],10 –> [00:06:09],380
basically and and it’s been working and
it’s kind of it turns out I’m a pretty

80
[00:06:09],380 –> [00:06:13],190
decent writer which I kind of knew but I
never really had applied to anything

81
[00:06:13],190 –> [00:06:18],200
before I’d never had writing as an
interest until I decided to write about

82
[00:06:18],200 –> [00:06:22],219
something I was interested about and
it’s kind of taken off from there helps

83
[00:06:22],219 –> [00:06:26],450
when you have people that really believe
in you and you know how I found out

84
[00:06:26],450 –> [00:06:30],979
about your site was through DJ z-trip
retweeting an article that you did about

85
[00:06:30],979 –> [00:06:36],139
beat-matching yeah I was probably to ten
reasons why you should still learn how

86
[00:06:36],139 –> [00:06:37],250
to be matched by ear

87
[00:06:37],250 –> [00:06:40],700
something like that should be pretty
self-explanatory is this to a skill

88
[00:06:40],700 –> [00:06:48],710
that’s the very basis of djing outside
of the song selection right yeah it was

89
[00:06:48],710 –> [00:06:52],460
super cool that that particular post
went viral and and brought a lot of

90
[00:06:52],460 –> [00:06:55],729
attention to the site which was a big
confidence booster for me it was my

91
[00:06:55],729 –> [00:07:00],630
first kind of experience with more
people seeing what I had written

92
[00:07:00],630 –> [00:07:05],280
then you know people that I had directly
guided to the site or had seen it

93
[00:07:05],280 –> [00:07:08],880
through friends or friends of friends
kind of thing it was suddenly I had this

94
[00:07:08],880 –> [00:07:13],50
influx of traffic with which is a little
makes you feel a little vulnerable to

95
[00:07:13],50 –> [00:07:15],90
but I’m sure what we’ll talk about that
later

96
[00:07:15],90 –> [00:07:21],659
well how did your your your family and
your friends received you know the first

97
[00:07:21],660 –> [00:07:25],650
the djing and then later when you’re
like hey I’m gonna do this website and i

98
[00:07:25],650 –> [00:07:29],669
am doing this website and oh man all
these people are coming to my study all

99
[00:07:29],670 –> [00:07:32],790
the time because of this one article i’m
sure you were jumping up and down

100
[00:07:33],900 –> [00:07:39],000
yeah he’s out it was received by the
head by those that are closest to you

101
[00:07:39],000 –> [00:07:43],260
so is as far as family goes they’ve
always been really supportive i have

102
[00:07:43],260 –> [00:07:48],810
very supportive family as far as they
don’t hold necessarily know what it is

103
[00:07:48],810 –> [00:07:53],10
that I’m doing but I haven’t dealt with
a whole lot of the criticism as far as

104
[00:07:53],10 –> [00:07:55],950
what why are you wasting your time on
this or that my girlfriend Stacy

105
[00:07:55],950 –> [00:08:00],719
particularly has been incredibly
supportive she realizes that you know

106
[00:08:00],720 –> [00:08:05],400
because I’m trying to do all of these
other projects and and do all this

107
[00:08:05],400 –> [00:08:08],880
writing and this this time that requires
creative energy

108
[00:08:08],880 –> [00:08:12],659
she’s really been supportive through the
whole thing and an understanding and I

109
[00:08:12],660 –> [00:08:16],860
think that it’s actually inspired her to
to make some moose towards her own

110
[00:08:16],860 –> [00:08:20],790
dreams which is pretty cool as far as
friends go been kind of a mixed bag

111
[00:08:20],790 –> [00:08:22],410
mostly supportive

112
[00:08:22],410 –> [00:08:27],540
the funny thing is the the most
negativity that you seem to get when it

113
[00:08:27],540 –> [00:08:33],120
comes to friends are from the people
that are closest to you and it’s they

114
[00:08:33],120 –> [00:08:37],950
don’t mean to do it it i think maybe
it’s just those are the people that you

115
[00:08:37],950 –> [00:08:43],169
have maybe the most honesty you know
with like I had one particular friend

116
[00:08:43],169 –> [00:08:47],579
who was kinda like why why are you
trying to do this full time are you

117
[00:08:47],580 –> [00:08:52],80
trying to be a writer in a DJ and and
all the stuff when you have a good job

118
[00:08:52],80 –> [00:08:56],100
that’s paying your bills you’ve got a
nice house you know you

119
[00:08:56],100 –> [00:08:59],850
everything’s going fine for you and and
i had to be very clear you know it’s

120
[00:08:59],850 –> [00:09:04],890
it’s not that my my job is treated me
poorly it’s that I’ve been doing I’ve

121
[00:09:04],890 –> [00:09:09],870
been working this job for 13 years which
for a thirty-year-old is a long time i

122
[00:09:09],870 –> [00:09:12],630
mean i’ve been doing this since I was in
high school and I’m

123
[00:09:12],630 –> [00:09:17],130
I’m ready to change it up and I want to
do that in such a way that I’m you know

124
[00:09:17],130 –> [00:09:22],320
every day im doing something that I want
to do and i feel like i could spend a

125
[00:09:22],320 –> [00:09:26],160
lot of time on on something like that if
it’s something I love doing

126
[00:09:26],700 –> [00:09:29],730
suddenly it doesn’t feel so impressive
if you love doing it anyway you know

127
[00:09:29],730 –> [00:09:34],20
what I mean very much so you know they
some of them don’t really understand

128
[00:09:34],20 –> [00:09:40],920
that but the ones that have that kind of
same entrepreneurial Drive or it just

129
[00:09:40],920 –> [00:09:45],000
drive in general particularly motivated
people tend to understand more than

130
[00:09:45],000 –> [00:09:49],590
people who are kind of stagnant in their
own situation which is kind of revealing

131
[00:09:49],590 –> [00:09:53],430
and you can’t to eat you have to take it
with a grain of salt because they’re

132
[00:09:53],430 –> [00:09:57],150
they’re typically not trying to attack
you or anything they just don’t

133
[00:09:57],150 –> [00:10:00],420
understand or it may be revealed
something that they don’t like about

134
[00:10:00],420 –> [00:10:05],520
themselves so I don’t take any of that
personally but overall very supportive

135
[00:10:05],520 –> [00:10:09],870
I i have a lot of good people in my life
so I can’t really complain that’s pretty

136
[00:10:09],870 –> [00:10:14],40
invaluable to have people that believe
in you and enough to support you even

137
[00:10:14],40 –> [00:10:18],150
though they don’t get it i always say
it’s to me it’s not a bell

138
[00:10:18],150 –> [00:10:23],40
it’s not necessarily about money it’s
it’s not about wanting it all it’s about

139
[00:10:23],40 –> [00:10:25],110
wanting to do it all

140
[00:10:25],110 –> [00:10:28],560
absolutely i mean I money obviously
plays a factor

141
[00:10:28],560 –> [00:10:31],709
I mean it’s already lost money man
dreams especially dreams

142
[00:10:32],880 –> [00:10:36],510
yeah money is definitely important and
that plays a huge role and in my

143
[00:10:36],510 –> [00:10:40],740
decision-making process but it’s what
good is money if you just collect money

144
[00:10:40],740 –> [00:10:46],590
and it sits there right i mean money is
it means to an end and for me my my end

145
[00:10:46],590 –> [00:10:51],120
is you know I want to be able to pursue
these these passions that are not

146
[00:10:51],120 –> [00:10:54],540
necessarily may or may not be
money-making ventures but they’re just

147
[00:10:54],540 –> [00:10:58],709
things that I’m interested in I want to
do that pre-dated they give value to me

148
[00:10:58],710 –> [00:11:04],110
or others and you know you have to have
money to do that so it’s it it’s almost

149
[00:11:04],110 –> [00:11:08],910
like I’m trying to put systems in place
to make money but in order to gain time

150
[00:11:08],910 –> [00:11:13],140
it’s not really the money that I’m
trying to collect so much as its

151
[00:11:13],140 –> [00:11:17],610
financial independence so that I have
kind of Independence as far as my

152
[00:11:17],610 –> [00:11:21],420
scheduling and my time goes because the
time is the one resource that we do not

153
[00:11:21],420 –> [00:11:23],250
have an infinite

154
[00:11:23],250 –> [00:11:26],970
resource of you know I mean you can
always find a way to get more money you

155
[00:11:26],970 –> [00:11:31],500
can always find a way to get more of
anything but time once times gone it’s

156
[00:11:31],500 –> [00:11:36],540
gone so it’s all about getting to that
point where basically i can do what i

157
[00:11:36],540 –> [00:11:40],980
want i mean in a way it’s kind of
selfish but it’s it’s not just me it’s I

158
[00:11:40],980 –> [00:11:44],40
want to spend more time with my family I
want to spend more time with my music

159
[00:11:44],40 –> [00:11:48],510
and I wanted you know so it all kinda it
centers around money but money is not

160
[00:11:48],510 –> [00:11:50],40
the purpose for sure

161
[00:11:50],40 –> [00:11:53],849
well you know I mean we both know the
tech industry is not great two people

162
[00:11:53],850 –> [00:11:59],430
over the age of 50 right so so it does
make sense especially for you being in

163
[00:11:59],430 –> [00:12:03],750
the tech field to to figure out
something for the next level

164
[00:12:03],750 –> [00:12:08],160
even if it’s not today or tomorrow down
the road you need you’re gonna need

165
[00:12:08],160 –> [00:12:13],260
something especially because I I got
really lucky when I was young in high

166
[00:12:13],260 –> [00:12:18],840
school because i was going to location
of vocational school I managed to get

167
[00:12:18],840 –> [00:12:22],920
kind of an internship big through the
company that I still work for today and

168
[00:12:22],920 –> [00:12:27],750
impress the right person and got hired
on i have so i was i was lucky then but

169
[00:12:27],750 –> [00:12:32],940
the position that puts me and now is I
have no degree i have no certifications

170
[00:12:32],940 –> [00:12:38],310
I have nothing to really fall back on
other than I have 13 years of experience

171
[00:12:38],310 –> [00:12:42],390
in the field and I have worked my way up
a little bit in the corporate ladder but

172
[00:12:42],390 –> [00:12:46],260
you know it’s one of those things where
do I go from here

173
[00:12:46],770 –> [00:12:53],400
do I want to kisses I’m sysadmin now and
it doesn’t really go much beyond that

174
[00:12:53],400 –> [00:12:59],880
unless I want to get into management or
I want to specialize in something like I

175
[00:12:59],880 –> [00:13:05],790
want to be a database administrator or
storage administrator and so i decided

176
[00:13:05],790 –> [00:13:10],890
that i didn’t really that doesn’t really
float my boat anymore especially you

177
[00:13:10],890 –> [00:13:17],430
know going down that road any further so
I’m trying to put all these other pieces

178
[00:13:17],430 –> [00:13:22],290
in place so that i can do what really
what I’m passionate about and still pay

179
[00:13:22],290 –> [00:13:26],310
the bills so when you got started DJing
and then when you got started with

180
[00:13:26],310 –> [00:13:31],709
passionate DJ dot-com what steps did you
take to get started with both of them

181
[00:13:32],459 –> [00:13:37],138
well djing itself I’ve been doing for
close to 10 years

182
[00:13:37],139 –> [00:13:41],69
that you know it’s a little different
time frame than the blog which is much

183
[00:13:41],69 –> [00:13:46],139
more recent but the djing thing kinda
came as a natural progression because

184
[00:13:46],139 –> [00:13:52],319
you know like I said I i had already had
a lot of musical influence i’ve always

185
[00:13:52],319 –> [00:13:57],748
loved music and you know I i went from
playing piano to what if i can like

186
[00:13:57],749 –> [00:14:01],79
write my own songs so then i would try
to like I took a couple of small

187
[00:14:01],79 –> [00:14:05],878
composing classes from my piano teacher
she was like an extra like a Saturday

188
[00:14:05],879 –> [00:14:10],230
thing started learning more about that
improvisation and stuff and then I you

189
[00:14:10],230 –> [00:14:16],679
know 10 15 years ago I came across i
think it was probably an early early

190
[00:14:16],679 –> [00:14:20],579
version of fruity loops or something for
those who aren’t aware that’s audio

191
[00:14:20],579 –> [00:14:24],839
production software and started making
beats and then started making melodies

192
[00:14:24],839 –> [00:14:31],470
and started going well I can make entire
songs you know right in the box so i

193
[00:14:31],470 –> [00:14:36],389
started doing that and then I started
going well how can i how can I perform

194
[00:14:36],389 –> [00:14:42],59
out somewhere and and share music with
people so then it led to be seeking that

195
[00:14:42],59 –> [00:14:45],839
out which led to two djing led to me
getting involved with the scene and

196
[00:14:45],839 –> [00:14:50],970
trying to network and which leads to
marketing and which leads to the blog so

197
[00:14:50],970 –> [00:14:56],429
it’s it was kind of a long progression
over time and I never really had a

198
[00:14:56],429 –> [00:15:01],709
specific plan of attack for djing other
than I’ve got stuff inside me that I

199
[00:15:01],709 –> [00:15:05],309
need to get out and I want to share it
with people and that was a way for me to

200
[00:15:05],309 –> [00:15:12],89
kind of bring a performance are into the
whole thing as far as starting the blog

201
[00:15:12],89 –> [00:15:19],410
there’s a lot of frustrating things
about being a DJ which i’m sure you’re

202
[00:15:19],410 –> [00:15:24],689
fully aware of i mean as far as dealing
with other DJs and dealing with crowds

203
[00:15:24],689 –> [00:15:31],469
and and you know with the the state that
the music industry’s and now there is a

204
[00:15:31],470 –> [00:15:36],839
lot of freedom for people like me to
explore things like this which means

205
[00:15:36],839 –> [00:15:41],639
that it’s you know the barriers of entry
have been lowered so what used to cost a

206
[00:15:41],639 –> [00:15:46],169
lot of money to get involved with and
used to require a lot of investment and

207
[00:15:46],169 –> [00:15:50],730
time and connections and things to do is
now kind of a free-for-all

208
[00:15:50],730 –> [00:15:56],519
I mean you can you can get on online and
download a zillion songs and some free

209
[00:15:56],519 –> [00:15:59],519
software and call yourself a DJ and
that’s all it takes

210
[00:16:00],810 –> [00:16:04],199
which is fine you know I don’t really
care what people do with their free time

211
[00:16:04],199 –> [00:16:09],750
that’s how all of us pretty much got
started in some form or another but what

212
[00:16:09],750 –> [00:16:15],990
gets frustrating is is when people they
tend to devalue the craft or at least

213
[00:16:15],990 –> [00:16:20],279
value what it is that you do or you at
least you feel that way because you’re

214
[00:16:20],279 –> [00:16:24],570
like hey I put a lot of time into this
this is like I’m passionate about this I

215
[00:16:24],570 –> [00:16:30],329
and I put a lot more thought into this
than just hitting shuffle on my ipod so

216
[00:16:30],329 –> [00:16:34],589
and i know that there are other people
out there that feel the same way and i

217
[00:16:34],589 –> [00:16:40],440
want to connect with them so that was
kind of where the the the blog started

218
[00:16:40],440 –> [00:16:43],649
you know is on one hand it was this
experiment you know can I build traffic

219
[00:16:43],649 –> [00:16:48],750
can I build a fan base but on the other
hand it’s like I actually just want to

220
[00:16:48],750 –> [00:16:53],190
find these people who are like me who
think that there’s there’s more to being

221
[00:16:53],190 –> [00:16:58],949
a DJ then how good you can blend between
two songs of your choice you know so i

222
[00:16:58],949 –> [00:17:04],79
started doing a lot of research both in
the blogging aspect you know how do I

223
[00:17:04],79 –> [00:17:08],549
become a better writer how do i write
get headlines how do i do this and that

224
[00:17:09],209 –> [00:17:12],209
luckily I had a lot of the technical
background already already knew how to

225
[00:17:12],209 –> [00:17:16],140
setup a website and all that kind of
stuff so that stuff was easy for me but

226
[00:17:16],140 –> [00:17:23],220
the hard part is giving yourself
permission to do it in a way it’s kind

227
[00:17:23],220 –> [00:17:27],480
of hard to explain but you have to give
yourself permission to succeed and

228
[00:17:27],480 –> [00:17:33],59
that’s something that people don’t
really consider I don’t think but is it

229
[00:17:33],59 –> [00:17:37],110
becomes very real when you decide you
want to do something it you almost feel

230
[00:17:37],110 –> [00:17:41],760
like Who am I to put my thoughts out
there for the world to see or Who am I

231
[00:17:41],760 –> [00:17:47],460
to be standing in front of a crowd you
know playing to this 510 hundred

232
[00:17:47],460 –> [00:17:51],900
thousand ten thousand people however
many it is you know what what gives me

233
[00:17:51],900 –> [00:17:56],130
the right to do that and you have to get
over that I mean you don’t want to be an

234
[00:17:56],130 –> [00:18:01],919
egomaniac but at the same time you know
it’s okay to share your brand of

235
[00:18:01],919 –> [00:18:04],350
knowledge with the world and if people
resonate

236
[00:18:04],350 –> [00:18:09],30
with that and you’re providing value to
them then more power to you

237
[00:18:09],30 –> [00:18:15],539
so getting over that initial hurdle is a
kind of a big deal and its overall it

238
[00:18:15],539 –> [00:18:22],530
really comes down to be giving a crap
about what what you’re writing about and

239
[00:18:22],530 –> [00:18:26],520
what you’re trying to share with people
and it’s kind of funny because there’s a

240
[00:18:26],520 –> [00:18:32],940
lot of parallels between djing blogging
starting a business and these are all

241
[00:18:32],940 –> [00:18:38],970
things that I’m interested and each of
those you want to ask what problems are

242
[00:18:38],970 –> [00:18:41],909
people having that you’re trying to
solve

243
[00:18:41],909 –> [00:18:45],630
how can I help them with that you know
as far as the blog goes it’s like how

244
[00:18:45],630 –> [00:18:50],730
can I treat them like a friend and not
just guessed number thirty-nine thousand

245
[00:18:50],730 –> [00:18:55],770
264 I mean it’s you know I want to
actually interact with people and feel

246
[00:18:55],770 –> [00:18:59],789
like I’m a friend to them and I wanted
to gain friends out of it so that was

247
[00:18:59],789 –> [00:19:04],289
really what what got me started and gave
me the push that I needed was you know i

248
[00:19:04],289 –> [00:19:07],80
feel like i have stuff on my chest to
get out and I feel like somebody else

249
[00:19:07],80 –> [00:19:14],549
will resonate with it and if not fine
but it’s it’s hard to bare your soul to

250
[00:19:14],549 –> [00:19:21],360
an audience and so you you have to
really develop a thick skin quickly and

251
[00:19:21],360 –> [00:19:25],860
that was something that I that was
really thrown in my face with that that

252
[00:19:25],860 –> [00:19:30],418
viral post that actually the beat
matching post that introduced us because

253
[00:19:30],419 –> [00:19:34],80
there were a lot of people that you know
right now that post has I don’t know

254
[00:19:34],80 –> [00:19:36],570
it’s coming up on 200 comments or
something like that

255
[00:19:36],570 –> [00:19:41],129
there-there was just as many actually
they’re the most comments are well this

256
[00:19:41],130 –> [00:19:44],520
article spot on this is great thank you
for writing this I’ve been saying this

257
[00:19:44],520 –> [00:19:50],250
for years . about but then there’s like
that ten or twenty percent that are like

258
[00:19:50],250 –> [00:19:56],880
well if you don’t do such-and-such
you’re not a real DJ or you know get off

259
[00:19:56],880 –> [00:20:01],350
your high horse and blah blah blah and
it’s one of those things like people

260
[00:20:01],350 –> [00:20:06],689
obviously didn’t either didn’t read the
article to completion or I didn’t

261
[00:20:06],690 –> [00:20:11],850
explain something properly and probably
the truth always something and something

262
[00:20:11],850 –> [00:20:12],389
in the middle

263
[00:20:12],390 –> [00:20:14],220
yeah well there’s always gonna be haters

264
[00:20:14],220 –> [00:20:19],380
yeah it is and you you have to really be
prepared for that because you know I’m

265
[00:20:19],380 –> [00:20:24],360
kind of some kind of branding myself as
this nice guy like approachable like

266
[00:20:24],360 –> [00:20:28],110
anybody can talk to me because that’s
just how I am I can attest to that

267
[00:20:29],190 –> [00:20:34],200
well thank you and so I I was like okay
I know that this is a strength of mine

268
[00:20:34],200 –> [00:20:38],10
i’m going to use that I’m gonna be you
know they’re there are other DJ blogs

269
[00:20:38],10 –> [00:20:42],150
out there but I want people to feel like
they can hit me up on skype like you are

270
[00:20:42],150 –> [00:20:47],700
or you know they can join my email list
and reply to something and i’ll actually

271
[00:20:47],700 –> [00:20:53],610
reply back and that sort of thing and
you know i i’m not an egomaniac I’m not

272
[00:20:53],610 –> [00:20:59],399
judgmental it I’m feel like I’m really
easy to talk to and so to get all that

273
[00:20:59],400 –> [00:21:06],780
negative attention suddenly even if it
was the the minority of all the comments

274
[00:21:06],780 –> [00:21:13],260
on their it still makes you cry it just
makes you feel so bad and you have to

275
[00:21:13],260 –> [00:21:18],240
get over that because it’s gonna happen
or you’re probably not making moves you

276
[00:21:18],240 –> [00:21:23],940
know what I mean right up what would you
say that you did to overcome those I

277
[00:21:23],940 –> [00:21:27],240
mean because i would say those are
pretty big roblox I mean I know for me

278
[00:21:27],240 –> [00:21:32],130
personally you know being a DJ
competition and getting booed only once

279
[00:21:32],130 –> [00:21:37],140
want one time but the crowd did not get
what I was coming from but the DJ who

280
[00:21:37],140 –> [00:21:41],970
was operating the whole show for the
competition was like you know screw them

281
[00:21:41],970 –> [00:21:44],700
they don’t know what they’re talking
about what you’re doing is is really

282
[00:21:44],700 –> [00:21:47],940
good keep doing it because you’re
educating them

283
[00:21:47],940 –> [00:21:52],80
yeah it you’re going to have criticism
you’re going to have negativity you’re

284
[00:21:52],80 –> [00:21:57],629
going to feel vulnerable and the only
way that you’re going to get past that

285
[00:21:57],630 –> [00:22:01],860
is it sounds really cliche but is to
just do it i mean you have to

286
[00:22:01],860 –> [00:22:05],280
occasionally have to throw yourself
under the bus a little bit make yourself

287
[00:22:05],280 –> [00:22:09],59
vulnerable because it all comes down to
doing a little bit at a time and you

288
[00:22:09],59 –> [00:22:13],590
have to make yourself uncomfortable or
else your there’s no point because if

289
[00:22:13],590 –> [00:22:17],549
you’re if you’re comfortable then you’re
not changing anything you’re not putting

290
[00:22:17],549 –> [00:22:21],720
yourself out there you’re not making a
difference and you know they’re there

291
[00:22:21],720 –> [00:22:26],850
would be no point in pursuing something
that every single person in the world

292
[00:22:26],850 –> [00:22:27],719
agreed with

293
[00:22:27],720 –> [00:22:32],760
there would be no purpose for what
you’re doing so you have to realize that

294
[00:22:32],760 –> [00:22:37],169
you’re you’re going to run into that
kind of thing and and just grin and bear

295
[00:22:37],169 –> [00:22:40],289
it I mean there’s I haven’t found a
better way to deal with it personally

296
[00:22:40],289 –> [00:22:45],480
it’s harder for me to deal with
criticism and negativity from people i

297
[00:22:45],480 –> [00:22:50],100
know then randoms but it still affects
you

298
[00:22:50],100 –> [00:22:54],539
yeah that the only the only advice I
have is just keep doing it little bit at

299
[00:22:54],539 –> [00:22:59],129
a time I mean baby steps you know my
most interaction that I’ve ever gotten

300
[00:22:59],130 –> [00:23:03],750
on the blog so far is that post that
turned out to be kind of controversial

301
[00:23:03],750 –> [00:23:08],10
and I was not intentionally doing that
because I didn’t go out there and make

302
[00:23:08],10 –> [00:23:12],658
some like sensationalist headlines and
called somebody an idiot or anything

303
[00:23:12],659 –> [00:23:16],860
like that I just put my thoughts on
paper and some people are gonna think

304
[00:23:16],860 –> [00:23:21],270
that you’re Satan for doing that and
just accept it it’s fine so is there any

305
[00:23:21],270 –> [00:23:27],990
parts of your dream your dreams that i
haven’t quite worked out well i’m still

306
[00:23:27],990 –> [00:23:33],539
trying so i’ll let you know obviously I
haven’t been able to quit my job yet but

307
[00:23:33],539 –> [00:23:39],510
i’m still very early on this this
journey I mean I i decided about a year

308
[00:23:39],510 –> [00:23:45],720
ago that i wanted to quit my job and
work for myself I’m not there yet but

309
[00:23:45],720 –> [00:23:52],200
I’ve made so much progress that I I
never would have thought that I wouldn’t

310
[00:23:52],200 –> [00:23:58],440
be as far as I am I mean I’ve got you
know a good readership I’ve got a

311
[00:23:58],440 –> [00:24:01],440
mailing list with several hundred people
on it

312
[00:24:01],440 –> [00:24:06],900
I’ve got people who are writing me every
day thanking me for you know the writing

313
[00:24:06],900 –> [00:24:11],429
that I do and the podcast and everything
so I’m finding those people that are

314
[00:24:11],429 –> [00:24:15],780
resonating with my message and at the
same time you know i’m working on these

315
[00:24:15],780 –> [00:24:20],460
these other business ideas that are
moving slower than i would like but you

316
[00:24:20],460 –> [00:24:25],440
know I’m seeing results so it’s it’s one
of those things well maybe I’ll start

317
[00:24:25],440 –> [00:24:29],789
this business and just dip my toes and
then it makes me a hundred bucks and I’m

318
[00:24:29],789 –> [00:24:34],440
like okay proof-of-concept i can’t i
can’t quit my job but I’ve proven that

319
[00:24:34],440 –> [00:24:39],30
this is going somewhere and so I’m
that’s basically where I am with all of

320
[00:24:39],30 –> [00:24:43],260
my projects right now is I’m I’m proving
to myself that this is okay this is

321
[00:24:43],260 –> [00:24:48],210
where I need to go so yeah that’s a i’ll
let you know if I have any major

322
[00:24:48],210 –> [00:24:55],80
failures I don’t feel like I have so far
but I’ve also traded very lightly as far

323
[00:24:55],80 –> [00:24:59],490
as making investments in things growing
too big too fast

324
[00:25:00],149 –> [00:25:03],629
this whole time I’ve approached it as if
it’s a marathon not a sprint

325
[00:25:03],630 –> [00:25:08],190
via if I could give some advice it is
important to stop and smell the roses

326
[00:25:08],970 –> [00:25:14],820
why you’re doing all this I mean I’m
it’s really easy to get you know for me

327
[00:25:14],820 –> [00:25:18],870
I’m working a full-time job and I i do
work from home now I telecommute so that

328
[00:25:18],870 –> [00:25:25],799
helps a lot with that flexibility but
it’s it’s it’s important to not just do

329
[00:25:25],799 –> [00:25:29],490
what you’re passionate about but to be
passionate about what you do you know

330
[00:25:29],490 –> [00:25:32],610
stop and smell the roses I mean don’t
don’t let life pass you by

331
[00:25:33],179 –> [00:25:37],830
while you’re pursuing your dreams
because sometimes sometimes part of the

332
[00:25:37],830 –> [00:25:40],530
dream is is the pursuit

333
[00:25:40],530 –> [00:25:45],360
you know what I mean and if you position
yourself to where you’re you’re working

334
[00:25:45],360 –> [00:25:47],370
on something that you care about

335
[00:25:47],370 –> [00:25:50],428
it’s not going to feel so much like work
even if your schedule is full

336
[00:25:51],149 –> [00:25:56],70
even if you know your we stayed up too
late you’re losing hours of sleep if you

337
[00:25:56],70 –> [00:26:00],299
love what you’re doing it really goes a
long way but you also have to think of

338
[00:26:00],299 –> [00:26:01],860
how that affects other people

339
[00:26:01],860 –> [00:26:08],219
so I’ve had to to really be careful that
I don’t cause problems in my family life

340
[00:26:08],220 –> [00:26:14],250
because i’m always gone are always
locked in a room writing or always you

341
[00:26:14],250 –> [00:26:18],630
know lock locked up behind my DJ booth
or whatever it is there’s only so much

342
[00:26:18],630 –> [00:26:23],70
time in the day so for me it’s it’s a
time management issue and I’m still

343
[00:26:23],70 –> [00:26:28],379
working on that so if i were to say one
thing that’s not that hasn’t worked out

344
[00:26:28],380 –> [00:26:32],399
that has been a problem for me or a
hurdle it’s time management so that’s

345
[00:26:32],399 –> [00:26:36],899
something I’m very much working on you
know getting up a specific time every

346
[00:26:36],899 –> [00:26:40],949
day whether i have something to do or
not and making sure i’m done at a

347
[00:26:40],950 –> [00:26:43],559
certain time of the day so that I can
give my family the attention they

348
[00:26:43],559 –> [00:26:45],240
deserve that sort of thing

349
[00:26:45],240 –> [00:26:48],480
yeah i mean it’s it’s gotta be tough
especially working from

350
[00:26:48],480 –> [00:26:52],350
home you know there’s there’s no problem
there’s no reason to be up

351
[00:26:53],460 –> [00:26:56],820
it’s not only the office where okay I
gotta be here at eight o’clock some

352
[00:26:56],820 –> [00:26:59],820
going to have a problem if i’m not there
a clock

353
[00:27:00],390 –> [00:27:04],950
yeah telecommuting has been a nice
transition because it’s it’s helped

354
[00:27:04],950 –> [00:27:09],900
introduce me to that time management
problem without like completely messing

355
[00:27:09],900 –> [00:27:13],350
everything out because I’m just kind of
dipping my toes and it’s like okay I’m

356
[00:27:13],350 –> [00:27:18],689
not running my own business I don’t have
all that responsibility but i’m learning

357
[00:27:18],690 –> [00:27:24],840
what I need to do to manage my schedule
how to communicate with Stacey about

358
[00:27:24],840 –> [00:27:29],220
what I’m gonna be doing that day and
it’s it’s been an adjustment at least as

359
[00:27:29],220 –> [00:27:33],870
much for her as it’s been for me because
it’s it’s hard for her to realize that

360
[00:27:33],870 –> [00:27:38],549
you know when i’m working you need to
pretend I’m not here or I’m you know

361
[00:27:38],549 –> [00:27:41],940
they they say that if you get
interrupted it takes you like 15 or 20

362
[00:27:41],940 –> [00:27:45],630
minutes to get your train of thought
back to where you were and everything

363
[00:27:45],630 –> [00:27:50],460
that I do requires that kind of creative
energy you know the djing the music

364
[00:27:50],460 –> [00:27:54],90
production writing all that stuff that
I’m interested in

365
[00:27:54],90 –> [00:27:58],889
if i get interrupted it it’s like all
the the thoughts just fly out of my head

366
[00:27:58],890 –> [00:28:05],580
and I have to start over and so it’s
yeah finding those tactful ways to you

367
[00:28:05],580 –> [00:28:09],418
know say that hey I need someone
interrupted time all that kind of stuff

368
[00:28:10],20 –> [00:28:14],520
the other thing is having a good support
network is good and you you all you have

369
[00:28:14],520 –> [00:28:19],559
to kind of pursue that on your own as
far as surrounding yourself with

370
[00:28:19],559 –> [00:28:26],910
like-minded driven people so like a have
a couple of buddies that we haven’t for

371
[00:28:26],910 –> [00:28:31],679
a little while now but we every week
once a week we are meeting up just a

372
[00:28:31],679 –> [00:28:36],210
local bar grill to talk about our
various entrepreneurial pursuits and

373
[00:28:36],210 –> [00:28:40],919
kinda like a mastermind meeting you know
we just get together and talk even

374
[00:28:40],919 –> [00:28:45],210
though all of our projects were
completely unrelated getting that

375
[00:28:45],210 –> [00:28:51],900
outside perspective that being said you
really can only count on yourself as far

376
[00:28:51],900 –> [00:28:53],520
as getting things done

377
[00:28:53],520 –> [00:28:57],960
so while it’s important to have that
support network i don’t think that you

378
[00:28:57],960 –> [00:29:01],670
should rely on anyone else if you’re
trying to get things done

379
[00:29:01],670 –> [00:29:07],10
and I I don’t mean to say that you can’t
rely on anybody but don’t depend be

380
[00:29:07],10 –> [00:29:12],80
dependent on somebody else if it’s
holding you up you know it’s you have to

381
[00:29:12],80 –> [00:29:17],929
learn how to say no or learn how to move
things along without causing problems in

382
[00:29:17],930 –> [00:29:19],610
your relationships with people

383
[00:29:19],610 –> [00:29:23],179
yeah definitely I mean I one of things
always held me back was I needed an

384
[00:29:23],180 –> [00:29:28],220
artist to convey don’t think that i was
looking to to do and then i found that

385
[00:29:28],220 –> [00:29:34],130
in Matt fortunately arm and he’s been
very very good for me and and i think

386
[00:29:34],130 –> [00:29:39],140
i’ve been very good for him getting you
know moving are our passions forward

387
[00:29:39],140 –> [00:29:42],350
anyway so do you have any dreams for the
future

388
[00:29:43],160 –> [00:29:47],390
I mean you’ve dabbled in that here but
anything that you’re willing to share

389
[00:29:47],390 –> [00:29:49],340
for the future

390
[00:29:49],340 –> [00:29:53],689
sure well obviously quitting the day job
is the most immediate thing that I’m

391
[00:29:53],690 –> [00:29:58],520
trying to do that’s kind of like a is
this it’s an immediate milestone that’s

392
[00:29:58],520 –> [00:29:59],420
within reach

393
[00:29:59],420 –> [00:30:04],190
so that’s that’s kind of my my focus now
just because it’s it’s something that I

394
[00:30:04],190 –> [00:30:10],940
can digest and and I feel that I can do
i also would like to do something in the

395
[00:30:10],940 –> [00:30:17],600
autism space and i’m not quite sure of
what that is yet but the reason is you

396
[00:30:17],600 –> [00:30:21],889
know I guess that early at the beginning
I’m the oldest of six siblings and two

397
[00:30:21],890 –> [00:30:29],30
of them are on the autism spectrum my
younger brother Benjamin is nasty has

398
[00:30:29],30 –> [00:30:35],270
asperger syndrome and then mice sister
was the youngest the only girl she’s got

399
[00:30:35],270 –> [00:30:42],80
called pdd-nos which is also autism
spectrum it stands for pervasive you see

400
[00:30:42],80 –> [00:30:45],80
pervasive developmental disorder not
otherwise specified

401
[00:30:46],160 –> [00:30:51],50
so it’s essentially it’s an umbrella
term it’s it’s a catch-all autism covers

402
[00:30:51],50 –> [00:30:56],930
so many different things but she’s she’s
very low functioning she’s she’s 12

403
[00:30:56],930 –> [00:31:03],260
years old but she’s more like dealing
with the 23 year old but she is also a

404
[00:31:03],260 –> [00:31:09],20
huge inspiration to me and just I just
left my sister to death and I said it’s

405
[00:31:09],20 –> [00:31:14],210
really kind of it’s made me want to do
something I don’t know if that’s you

406
[00:31:14],210 –> [00:31:15],200
know philanthropic

407
[00:31:15],200 –> [00:31:19],220
or even if it’s just starting and
occasionally vent to where I can donate

408
[00:31:19],220 –> [00:31:21],919
to you know some society

409
[00:31:21],919 –> [00:31:25],159
I’m figured out where i’m going with
that yet but something in the autism

410
[00:31:25],159 –> [00:31:28],399
space would be something I’d like to do
I’d like to travel more

411
[00:31:29],29 –> [00:31:33],679
that’s something that I’ve not really
been able to do and is kind of part of

412
[00:31:33],679 –> [00:31:39],80
why i’m doing all this as to have that
the freedom to to go and and have

413
[00:31:39],80 –> [00:31:45],559
adventures and basically i’d like to be
a little more prolific and successful as

414
[00:31:45],559 –> [00:31:50],990
far as my DJing and producing goes so
that I can share my craft with more

415
[00:31:50],990 –> [00:31:55],399
people outside of you know my own town
I’ll probably always want to be building

416
[00:31:55],399 –> [00:32:01],370
businesses or attempting to because i
enjoy the climb and I think if i can get

417
[00:32:01],370 –> [00:32:05],59
to the point where I’m financially
independent then that’s only gonna drive

418
[00:32:05],59 –> [00:32:10],700
me to want to do that more because I i
enjoy building things building systems

419
[00:32:10],700 –> [00:32:14],929
anything that comes as my uniform I
systems administrator background but I

420
[00:32:14],929 –> [00:32:19],100
like putting all the pieces in place and
in that sort of thing and finally just a

421
[00:32:19],100 –> [00:32:23],658
building kind of a legacy you know
making making my mark on the world even

422
[00:32:23],659 –> [00:32:28],250
if it’s only to a handful of people i
think that’s more important to me than

423
[00:32:28],250 –> [00:32:34],820
how much money I make or where I live or
that sort of thing you know I want to

424
[00:32:34],820 –> [00:32:37],158
make an impact on people’s lives

425
[00:32:37],159 –> [00:32:41],929
well you know if you need help with the
autism stuff let me know I’m going to

426
[00:32:41],929 –> [00:32:45],679
help you out in any way i can I mean I
know we’re not right like next to each

427
[00:32:45],679 –> [00:32:49],519
other but we share a state in between us

428
[00:32:49],519 –> [00:32:52],880
yeah I mean that you know the world’s
getting smaller every day

429
[00:32:52],880 –> [00:32:57],19
it definitely is so is there any last
thoughts you’d like to share with our

430
[00:32:57],19 –> [00:32:58],669
audience

431
[00:32:58],669 –> [00:33:03],860
yeah sure I actually have a quote if you
don’t mind if that’s not too cheesy but

432
[00:33:03],860 –> [00:33:08],928
its success is typically about doing
more of the things that you know you

433
[00:33:08],929 –> [00:33:13],309
should do rather than learning the
secrets you don’t know so I’ll read that

434
[00:33:13],309 –> [00:33:17],450
again success is typically about doing
more of the things you know you should

435
[00:33:17],450 –> [00:33:23],59
do rather than learning the secrets you
don’t know I and the reason i bring that

436
[00:33:23],59 –> [00:33:28],440
up is because I i think that people feel
like they’re these massive

437
[00:33:28],440 –> [00:33:33],750
barriers in front of them and their
dreams and i think that the biggest

438
[00:33:33],750 –> [00:33:38],910
barrier is it is ourselves I mean giving
giving ourselves permission to try

439
[00:33:38],910 –> [00:33:44],970
things being willing to take small risks
or even larger wrists and I’m you know

440
[00:33:44],970 –> [00:33:48],510
it’s it’s not some that there’s some big
secret to success

441
[00:33:48],510 –> [00:33:55],350
it’s that you need to actually take baby
steps and I came to realize this when

442
[00:33:55],350 –> [00:33:59],459
you know I had thought about trying to
to start businesses and start writing

443
[00:33:59],460 –> [00:34:04],440
and start doing this and that and I
would just think about it and then a few

444
[00:34:04],440 –> [00:34:07],170
months later I would think about it and
then a few months later I would think

445
[00:34:07],170 –> [00:34:12],630
about it and the next thing you know
it’s been 5 10 years and I’m like how

446
[00:34:12],630 –> [00:34:18],270
far along would I be if I had taken this
baby step 10 years ago and you come to

447
[00:34:18],270 –> [00:34:23],250
realize that it’s not really that there
are these big hurdles in the way it’s

448
[00:34:23],250 –> [00:34:26],370
just that there are a lot of them and
you need to go get out there and start

449
[00:34:26],370 –> [00:34:30],600
making mistakes and figuring it out and
the sooner you do that the sooner you’re

450
[00:34:30],600 –> [00:34:34],350
going to be well on your way in this
modern age we have more opportunities

451
[00:34:34],350 –> [00:34:39],870
than we’ve ever had to advance ourselves
to pursue our dreams to follow our

452
[00:34:39],870 –> [00:34:45],690
passions and it seems like even so we
have at least as many if not more

453
[00:34:45],690 –> [00:34:51],330
unhappy people and uninspired people
then have we’ve ever had and maybe

454
[00:34:51],330 –> [00:34:55],739
that’s just kind of a social effect of
you know us were able to see everybody’s

455
[00:34:55],739 –> [00:34:59],669
thoughts all day long on you know
whatever screen happens to be in front

456
[00:34:59],670 –> [00:35:08],130
of us but it seems to me that there’s no
reason outside of just complacency to be

457
[00:35:08],130 –> [00:35:12],450
an unhappy drone yeah I mean there’s
some you are absolutely right

458
[00:35:12],450 –> [00:35:16],710
there’s plenty of opportunity for people
to to find themselves and find something

459
[00:35:16],710 –> [00:35:21],870
out there that they can be passionate
about and be happy with and can

460
[00:35:21],870 –> [00:35:27],930
hopefully make money with absolutely and
it’s kind of what you know again it

461
[00:35:27],930 –> [00:35:33],930
takes money to make dreams that it does
and in I honestly i would love you know
