Who did you take with you to the Grammy’s and how was it?
I Just recently took my client Jackson Krecioch to the 60th annual grammy awards. It was a great way to celebrate this past years accomplishments as well as gear up for the launch of Gloire Et Sang and the release of Jackson’s newest music.
What were your biggest failure and biggest success? What did you learn from them?
I don’t think there are really ever failures – it’s simply an opportunity to learn and grow from your mistakes.
I’ve promoted and hosted events that didn’t go so well, but my team and I learned what worked and what didn’t worked, and were able to optimize for the future. For example, Good Times Live is now the largest creator convention of the winter – featuring over 150 of the top online creators!
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Never give up.
