Why Am I Doing This? | Between the Headphones 3
Why am I taking this motivational and inspirational approach when I’m a DJ?
My job is to play music and be part of throwing a great party…right?
Let me back up for a minute…I have been a basketball player my entire life.
Literally, I swear I came out of the womb holding a mini basketball and did not let go of it until I had to make the decision to walk away from the game I love so dearly.
Something I learned along the way during my career was to be more than a basketball player.
We were taught to use our platform and talents to inspire and help others.
So here I am today, a retired professional basketball player that has been DJing for a decade, wanting to help and inspire others still.
Music has been a constant in my life for as long as I can remember.
Basketball and music went together for me like Michael Jordan and the Tune Squad. I couldn’t have one without the other.
Being a professional DJ, I want to continue to use my platform and influence and inspire people through music.
It’s why I am not ashamed to play songs from your childhood that make you smile and sing at the top of your lungs at 1am.
It’s why I got into modeling.
I wanted to play dress up and see how far I could push myself out of my comfort zone, because I want YOU to see that if I can do it, so can you.
I wanted to be more than a DJ.
I want to help you realize your potential while also maximizing mine.
There you have it.
I want to inspire you.
I want to move you.
I want to make you feel something.
I want you to listen to that tiny voice that is dying to scream that’s hiding deep inside of you.
I want to challenge you to be more.
The world needs more awesome.
And I KNOW you have a lot to offer that we all need; that I need.
So get up, be awesome, and #DareToBe!
