We had the good fortune of connecting with Desmond Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Desmond, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
The most important lesson my business/career has taught me, is to always trust the vision no matter how long to takes longevity is key. The process to success is a slow grind, just stick with it. All of the hard work will eventually pay off. Also be open minded to new ideas. As an entrepreneur I had to learn this early on. Mistakes are only learning lessons to get better.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I love to create in all forms, whether it’s music, acting, or business I am always passionate and aim to put a hundred percent in everything I do. I am most proud about, being an entrepreneur and creating a blueprint for those after me to give them hope, that anything is possible and you can become whatever you want to be in life if you put your mind too it. To get to where I am today, it took many years of learning, hard-work, dedication, and sacrifices. The journey has never been easy, but it only has made me stronger. Lessons I learned along the way is to trust the process, everything is God’s timing, and no one can take away what’s meant for you. I’ve also leaned to block out distractions and to stay focused on your goals. My story is dedicated to someone who never had anything but went for it all. A dreamer, with a vision. A artist with a canvas to paint and share my story through my truths, pain and passion; to Build generational wealth, and inspire others along the way.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Dallas, TX is home but I now currently live in Los Angeles, CA. From the beaches, to hiking, and the versatility of food there is so much to do and explore in California. Being with nature is peace for me.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
God, my wife, my family, and my fans are my inspiration and motivation to keep going and inspire others along the way.
