Jae Marie | Artist, Screen Writer, Podcaster & Clothing Brand Owner

God gave me the many gifts that I have, and if I’d chose to not use them, I believe I’d lose them. If I’d stayed in my own way and my own head, I know for certain it would not have happened for me, “success”. Whether or not this move has proven to bring residual success to my brand, personally or professionally, is ever evolving. You cannot have success without failure, that comes with the territory. I believe success is not a destination, but a journey and I’m in love with this journey – I am committed to my journey. I know that success will look different for everyone depending on their vantage point. My vantage point is to continue to look up, stay grounded and rounded, ever learning and improving me, never allowing anyone to determine what I should become or control the narrative for me, that includes my brand and businesses.

For me success comes from positivity, if I focus on the positive aspects of my work and life, I feel motivated and I keep pushing myself to achieving goals. Negative energy pulls me down, and I feel derailed from my goals. Read more>>

Cam Patt | Music Producer, Artist & Actor

The most important factor would be authenticity. As a musician, there are so many talented people I come across that add a lot of value to this space, but there is only one me. It is important to me to be authentic to my true self so that I carve out my own lane without trying to replicate anyone else while still exhibiting a lot of my musical influences. I believe people gravitate more towards someone who is being their authentic selves no matter how different it may come across. Read more>>
