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

Hi Titus, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I want to be able to control my time and create my own salary. I am also a believer that you will never make what you want to make working for someone else. It also apart of instilling in my kids to have their own and to dream big.

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 currently work as an Elementary School Music Teacher. I also have a company Called Pen and Heart where we specialize in writing songs and music production. We also have a free songwriting community for songwriters looking to build their craft and grow their network of Songwriters. I started the community because I didn’t see a lot of writings circles being hosted by African American in the Gospel Community and saw that their was a need for people To be educated about songwriting and for them to have an opportunity to experience co writing. My vision is to be a hub for artist, producers ect to come and fine songs or connect with writers to right for them so that we can shine more light songwriters and not just artist. My branding for the community is about building and establishing a network of songwriters. I have also started an T shirt line to bring more awareness and support to songwriters.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
That’s a great question….I don’t really go out a lot. I would take them though to this new brunch place I visited. It may not he new to others lol but I would take them to First Watch …I would also take them to try this vegan restaurant close to down town Dallas . I can’t think of the name of .. I would take them to this dessert place called the Cake Bar. I would visit the Art Museum in Downtown Dallas as well as Klyde Dale Park.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shout out to Maurice Griffin. Maurice is A Indie Artist who I feel is really showing Others how to make it today’s music industry. He really has heart for other artist to see them thrive and pursue their God given purpose. I had the privilege to Co write a Song with Maurice titled “Prove Me I’m Yours” which landed top 26 on billboards this year. It’s been through my connect with Maurice that I have grown in expanding my brand and pushing myself to pursue my purpose even the more.
