One of the most challenging things about being a DJ or self employed is collecting the money that you’ve worked for.
And one of the most important things is to keep your cool when someone isn’t paying you.
Growing up I used to be quite a hot head, just ask my dad how I was on the tennis court, so I had to learn the hard way.
One of my first nights that I was doing with a friend was at this bar that wanted to do a mix of music.
So I bought a bunch of records from hip hop to house to disco.
One night I was playing a set and what I thought was really a great set.
After the night, the bar owner came up to me and said that he wanted to talk to me.
So we sat down and he started telling me that he thought I needed to play better music.
I realize now that he just meant the music that would fit the crowd.
My emotions started to flare up, and I couldn’t believe that he was telling me this, I mean I had people making out in front of me.
