Interview with Ellen Alexander
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I am a Russia-born Fashion model, Artist, Singer, and Entrepreneur living in Los Angeles, California. Since the beginning, I have been inclined towards being an artist and that’s why I at the age of five years had formally started my artistic education. I come from a well-educated family of Russian scientists, but I intended to have my own name and fame. That’s what made led me to become an artist, singer, model, and entrepreneur of par excellence. I am the founder and CEO of GDP music group.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
It took weeks, months, and years to be where I am today, and it all started when my passion for singing, modeling, and being an artist grew stronger. I have been trying since my childhood. My suggestion to you is not to be jealous of anyone else’s success, just do your part best and success will automatically come to you. When you look at somebody else’s success with an evil eye and start burning out, you lose your success because you get demotivated and distressed out of your jealousy. Stay consistent and relentless in your work.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Though I come from a very repudiated and learned family, my passion for art made me step into the world of art where I have been doing wonders with my artistic talent and skill. My family never opposed my decision taken for my career, and they supported me to make my dream come true. What I am today is because of my self-interest, love, and support of my family. That’s why I owe a lot to them.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I try to do the things that are meant to make difference in my life and others. As a singer, I have been trying to create music with a strong message, all wrapped in layers and layers of meaning. Besides, I as an artist keep sharing beauty, fashion, and healthy lifestyle tips with people around me. I have my online store too from where products related to beauty, fashion, and a healthy lifestyle can be purchased. Moreover, I have a site from where art created by me can be bought.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Those who are passionate and crazy can do anything in the world.” These are the words that made me do whatever I do passionately. And when I am passionate, I put more effort. That’s why I have been today where I am just because of my passion and love for my profession.
