We had the good fortune of connecting with Elektro Ninja and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Elektro, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I think the most important factor behind anyone’s success is consistency. It doesn’t matter what your profession is, if you’re not consistently producing a quality product success becomes harder to obtain.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Well, I’m a self employed music producer/engineer. To me, that alone makes me proud. To be able to make a full time living and be my own boss is something not a lot of people get to do. I work and create things with awesome people all the time and every day is a different experience. It was definitely not easy to get to this point. I went through a lot of trial and error, failed partnerships, being taken advantage of etc. Along the way I learned to create procedures that protect me from having to relive those situations. It’s always a process of never ending learning. I want the world to know that you really can do whatever you want! I’ve seen the progression in myself and in people I work with. It definitely won’t come over night but if you’re consistent and motivated it will come eventually!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I LOVE Universal Studios Theme Park!!! I would take them there for sure, as well as the beach, museums and a bunch of places to eat, from LA street dogs to fresh sushi. Outside of that we would most likely be in the studio working on new music.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I think I’d have to start with my family. They have been a constant stream of support, advice and encouragement which has helped guide me toward a path of success. Secondly I give a lot of credit to a book called “The True Path Of The Ninja”. It’s a translation of original ninja scrolls that molded my mentality and helped me believe that as long as I set my mind to something I can accomplish it. The book taught me mental strength, to think outside the box and to compartmentalize. Without its lessons I would for sure be less focused.
