We had the good fortune of connecting with Seeking Solace and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Seeking, how do you think about risk?
Risk taking as I sit back and reflect is the foundation of my wisdom walk. A wisdom walk is what eye refer to as my life journey, given every step we take we learn something.
In September of 2015, I quit my off and on fifteen year run with Starbucks. Can’t forget broke up from a long term relationship and hopped on a plane.
Fast Forward, I moved to Vegas after three days of being on vacation. I remember this moment vividly I was standing in the valet of mgm. I took a huge breath after contemplating if I am really going to make this commitment…I did, I called JetBlue and told them to “refund the other half of my round trip ticket, I have decided that I am staying”. At that point growth and sacrifice was the route that begin to pave the way to my career today. Finding Peace in the land of chaos aka “the entertainment capital of the world”, influenced the foundation of the creation of Solace.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What is interesting about these questions is while reading eye learn more about the reality of alignment. Eye have a plethora of talents and many sides of me. Tapping into all talents has allowed me to blend together my career path. Fortunately, I was able to mend my wisdom walk (life journey) and use my experiences to help others.
When people ask “how did you get into radio?” I humbly reply by simply being myself. That answer has received different responses depending upon the perception at the time. To further elaborate I just moved to Vegas from Boston. I was at a local festival, I won a dance contest. Upon winning, I was approached by radio staff and asked if I’d be interested in radio. Honestly, I thought it was a joke but I went in with my heart on my shoulders and butterflies in my stomach…Now Seeking Solace is a platform continuously growing and expanding daily.
Solace means comfort in a time of distress. Which in this world with humanity resetting we must find just that. What always baffles me is I moved to the land of chaos, the entertainment capital of the world. Here eye found my Solace!
The challenge of being a creative never ends but once you see your purpose make sure it smoothly blends!
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.
Vegas is always an exciting experience for those who are open to really having fun. Again with the alignment as eye happen to be the walking itinerary for those who come to visit. Depending on the level of daredevil..here’s how it would go..
Monday- Strip Tour helicopter or Grand Canyon Trip to get a feel of what Vegas has to offer
Tuesday- Dinner at Rose, Rabbit, Lie at the Cosmopolitan..My favorite restaurant to eat and vibe
Wednesday- Beach Party at Encore Beach Club
Saturday-Sunday- Ziplines, Skyjump, VIVA Larry Flynts Hustlers (if you are into that), Brunch at Lavo located in the Palazzo.
Vegas is the land of opportunity, addiction or distraction which road will you choose?
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Without a doubt eye would first have to thank my nana for always allowing me to be myself. No matter what version of me or what amount of growth occured you NEVER JUDGED me and always made sure my being was stable. When others closed me out you would welcome me with open arms.
To my mother whom always protects me in may situation. Working three jobs at a time but always making sure we get by. Eye will always appreciate you for telling everyone at anytime, “THATS MY DAUGHTER, DO NOT TALK ABOUT HER”. Eye know eye moved far away but know eye love you and miss you everyday!
To my Pops whom has always respected me and supports everything eye do. Eye love you and know that half of me is you.
To the Universe, there is no me without you as you can not spell universe without U-N-I!!
To my brothers/kings Stephen & Sean for never allowing me to hang my head. Constantly reminding me that if they don’t realize who eye am it’s there lost not mine!
To My love Riyah B. Thank you for supporting and challenging me. Love has found us as we continue to be we. In cosmic dust we trust!
