Interview with Frank (@notorio718)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I think my childhood is the reason I am standing here today. In my hometown Bronx, New York; this was our life. Finding new beats and music was the way we felt alive and better. Music is ingrained to me like a soul, without it I am nothing, and I feel nothing. My work is the most precious thing in life for me and I love every second of doing it!
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Keep hustling like there’s no tomorrow. You have no choice, if you want to reach the top then the key is to know that the effort required must be fulfilled. On the days that you don’t feel your best do what makes you feel better. Hang out with a couple of friends, or go party and blow off some steam. Know what you need and give yourself that, that’s the way your brain will work the best, and you will eventually do your best too.
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?
My family and friends are by my side, supporting me throughout this journey. Whenever I land in a conflict, I call up my family or a friend to discuss it. They are really important to me.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Latin hip-hop is an industry that is on the rise to fame now. I do my best to support other artists like myself and make sure we together rise to the top!
Do you have a favourite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“In the atmosphere, having fun.”
This quote represents life’s true meaning; to have fun. Honestly, what even is life if it’s not enjoyed by everyone to the fullest. I believe there is a time for everything. When you are working, work hard and fully attentive. When you are partying, have fun and leave the stress at work. If you are with your family, then spend and make the most of your time with them. Living life is all about balance, make sure you create that equilibrium for yourself.
