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

Hi Joel, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I believe that taking risk is the secret ingredient to success. Without risk there’s no reward. Im a confident risk taker.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a recording artist, song writer and executive producer. I’ve been writing music since I was 6 years old and since then, knew that I would be creating music or being around music for the rest of my life. There were many challenges that came with trying to build a name for myself in the music world but I guess because I came in knowing that it’s going to be very hard gave me a sense of peace whenever trial and error comes. Overall, my mission is to bring awareness and honesty to all my supporters/listeners.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to dedicate this to my late childhood friend Walter Riley who recently passed away. Was a young businessman and athlete who was great at everything he did.
