We had the good fortune of connecting with Quincy Middleton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Quincy, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
The most important lesson I have learned in my business and career is to understand your value. For a long time I used to accept what I was given. I didn’t take the time to learn how much a DJ and our services are really worth in the entertainment industry. In the beginning, I was simply happy with being wanted. I loved what i was doing so money wasn’t that important to me. To be honest i wasn’t worried too much about the finances, because I was having fun. It wasn’t until I was exposed to new heights, that i begin to see the true value in a DJ. From moment on I begin to take the time and learn about everything I was leaving on the table. Everything from Networking opportunities, to knowledge about my craft, and financing. I gained more knowledge, and with that knowledge a true understanding of my value and self worth. In any business, career, or path you decide to take, i highly recommend you learn and deeply understand you value.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a self employed mobile DJ. I am a DJ whom is willing to travel to provide you joy, happiness, and a good time at you event. I capable of doing any event you can think of. I have successfully done weddings, birthday parties, day parties, club events, and concerts.
I am the most proud and excited for that fact that my business is becoming my main source of income. I’m now in a position where i can start DJ and perform other task in the in the entertainment and music industry full time.
I got to where I am today business wise by simply learning and always growing. Once I begin to understand my self worth and value, i immediately applied it to my craft, work ethic, prices, and how i used my time. This was not easy for me to physically do. but with some extra focus and dedication I got it done.
I overcame my challenges, by simply pressing forward. With each challenge came a different solution so necessary changes were made but above all i did not quite. I did not slow down. I continued to press forward.
I want the world to know that my brand is for everybody. I love to have a good time. I love to have fun. I rather see you smiling and dancing then anything else.
