We had the good fortune of connecting with DJ Exeqtive and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi DJ, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The thought process behind starting my own business wasn’t a easy one, because if my business fails it doesn’t only effect me, it effects my family. What made me decide it was time was while at my 9-5 I noticed I was on my phone handling dj bookings/events daily instead of paying attention to my day job. At that point I knew my business was expanding and it was time to become an entrepreneur!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m the owner of Exeqtive Entertainment LLC. which services all entertainment needs professionally, from weddings to corporate events, Bar Mitzvahs, Destinations weddings /events & more. What sets us apart from other companies is that we are club DJs/MCs that know how to rock weddings professionally and keep the dance floor packed! What I’m most proud & excited about is to see how my business has grown in less than 3 years from 75-100 weddings / private events to over 175 events . I’m not where I wanna be yet, but staying the course & following the 5p’s (proper preparation prevents, poor performance) will get me there.
Ive also learned along the way people want to leave and event saying not only they had a great time but had and amazing experience!
The lesson I’ve learned is making sure there’s a balance btw personal life and business.
I want the world to know that starting a new company isn’t easy but once you stay the course you will get to where you need to be.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There’s a lot of people I would love to give a shoutout to that have help me through the journey of my career like Dj S1,Aldo Ryan & Dj Pup dawg to name a few. With that being said the most recent person I want to dedicate my shoutout to is my program director at Taste on Dash Radio “Reggie Hawkins”. He was the 1st person last year during the pandemic that believed in me as an radio personality and gave me an opportunity to have my own R&B show “The Exeqtive Suite”every Sundays 6pm Est on his platform to grow and build as a personality.
