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

Hi Jourdan, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
If I’m still breathing, its always time to keep going. When you truly love your craft, whether that be Music, Photography, Film, Helping the Community…Whatever…Giving up is NOT an option, Giving up would be like holding your breath for the rest of your life. It’s your God given duty to give the world the gifts He gave you.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Genius can be attained simply by doing the work. The majority of us all have the same playing field when it comes to our mind and hands. How we use them is the only thing that sets us apart. Do you want to do the work or not is the question. Any challenge or negatively perceived situation along the way should be viewed as the mechanics of a battery. Batteries Do Not Work Without Positive AND Negative Charge. You need the negatives, the challenges. I embrace them, pray, sometimes cry, and then get back to work. I’m most proud of the blessings to be able continue and work with people, who thought it was impossible, to get their ideas and dreams out into the world.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The Modern Art Museum – The Japanese Gardens – Trinity Park – Edohana Hibachi and Sushi – Eddy V’s – Panther City BBQ – Shinjuku Station – Kiriyo Studio – Twelve Midnight Studio – Nexm Studio – Fort Worth Sound – Bass Hall Fort Worth Is Packed With Amazing Places. I’m an introvert and don’t get away from the computer/work much, Oh But When I Do? These are my go to spots.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
So Many people have helped and Still help me along the way. God first. My mother. Tan. My 9 brothers and sisters. My 6 kids. Myneiss, Hector Saucedo, Zach Blackwell, Rigo Rangel, Jamal Evans, Ray Will, Blacc, GLOAT Ent, The list could go on for days. I’m sorry I couldn’t write everyone down. I Truly Thank You. I’m Nothing Without YOU!
