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

Hi Akono, looking back, what do you think was the most difficult decision you’ve had to make?
The most difficult decision I’ve ever made was when I chose to be “successful”. It was difficult because I finally accepted to only focus on the things that gave me immense joy and contributed to my greater well being. Some of the things that were distractions were familiar habits that felt like “home” to me.. Those habits lived with me for years and to be able to finally give those up were bittersweet, but I knew it was time to let them go so that I could finally walk into the success, love, prosperity, and abundance that has always been my birth right.

Please tell us more about your career. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about.
What sets me apart from others is that I was born ME. We are all born differently and that statement alone is enough to know that we all are ENOGUH and have many things to offer to ourselves as well as to our fellow spirits who are experiencing this human experience.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?.
I like to remain a bit private as privacy is an important thing in my world so I won’t give out too many of my favorite places ;), but…. I do love Malibu, fine dining and nights inside the home watching moves and cooking.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
God, my mother Patricia Bridges, my father, Alvin Dixon. My agents Julia Buchwald and Adrian Hamerski, my impeccable manager, Patrick Corcoran and all of the agents over at Buchwald and to everyone who supports me.
