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

Hi Tjay, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk taking is what separates the average from the un-average . People have to understand in order to achieve your goals you have to step outside of your Comfort zone and take a risk if you want to be successful

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 am a full time wellness and nutrition coach with a nutrition shop located in DeSoto, Tx . Also a full time Model/Actor . what sets me apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. Is my drive to never give up no matter what situation I’m facing. I’m proud of being able to say that people who know me personal know me and my story are inspired by the young man I have become along my journey. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Stay dedicated to the plan and surrounding myself with like minded individuals and having great Mentors. If not, how did you overcome the challenges? I got into reading heavy and also started working on myself Physically and Spiritual, also I took the advice from my mentors who had been in my position before like they always tell me remain and student and be coachable and you will go far . What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. To wake up everyday and take it one step & one day at a time ! What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?I want the world and definitely my city Fort Worth , Tx to know no matter what you past is , it doesn’t define you it builds you for your future!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
First place I would take them is to my place Of business Gym/Nutrition club located in DeSoto, Tx 1308 W belt line rd #100 DeSoto, Tx 75115 @_unverisalnutrition for a good workout for the week, for some good food I would take them to breakfast brothers in Arlington for a good meal, then a place We would go to kick it and have fun is Top Golf in Downtown Fort Worth. Also to connect with some dope creatives in the dfw area I would take them to the @DonPagency for some great networking.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Firstly I want to give a honor to God for where I am today and also the people he has placed in my life , along my journey it has been so many individuals who are the reason I continue to succeed . My mother for never giving up on me ! To all my mentors along my journey from the age of 14 until now that I greatly appreciate
