Hey guys we are in the month of December and more holidays coming our way. Let’s focus more on loving and spending time with one another instead of fighting or complaining. Life is too short to allow things to change your mood and dictate how you spend your days. Let’s take responsibility and control of our situations, not only a “New Year Resolution” but an all-around “Life Resolution”. Now let’s get in the segment this week with our #DreamWarrior, this week we have another local. Remember guys like and share these interviews so we can affect more Dreamwarriors out there. Our Dreamwarrior is a multi-talented musician, a support to the community and a father to new baby girl. Everyone please give a warm welcome to Mr. James Rich.
Jess: Thank you for coming
James: Appreciate you having me a part of this opportunity
Jess: What is a Dreamwarrior?
James: Not to be basic but I would say someone who fights for their dreams. Someone willing to sacrifice what others won’t for their dream.
Jess: What are some things you’d love to partake in?
James: My dream is to make enough money so my mother can stop working.
Jess: I hear that, that’s a great dream and taking care of home after getting to that financial stability is awesome.
Jess: Do you feel a person that is considered a “Dreamwarrior” is someone that chases 1 or multiple dreams?
James: I think we should have multiple dreams so I think we should fight to achieve any and all dreams.
Jess: What makes you chase your dreams and not give up?
James: I continue to go after my dreams for the people who believe in me and the people who have sacrificed in order to give me the opportunity to chase my dreams. The haters as well, do it to laugh at them.
Jess: ha.. yes people that want you to do “ good” but not better than them are the worst kind. Their true intention is wanting you at a certain level and just plateau and stay there always.
James: Real stuff
Jess: Now, what have been a plateau or a challenge in your life that has affected you in a major way?
James: Dropping out of college I think is my biggest obstacle and regret. I have a 2 year degree and I am about a semester or 2 away from a 4 year degree in psychology. I was also in debt for a long time because of switching majors and schools.
Jess: I definitely can relate and know the feeling…
What sort of advice can you offer someone that had the same experience?
James: Follow their gut, get out of your own head. Get out of your way and never give up. Don’t let others’ lives or expectations influence your decisions or your process. I did a lot of flip flopping when I was younger as most people do. I was trying to fit in and be someone others wanted me to be, instead of just doing what I wanted.
Jess: What are some of your dreams and anyone you admire in the music industry?
James: Since I was a I always loved cars, so buying my first brand new car was a dream of mine that I’ve accomplished. Future dreams would be to work with people I admire such as Diddy and Wiz Khalifa. I also want to run my own record label one day.
Jess: Sounds awesome.. I wish you nothing but the best and can’t wait to say, yea I interviewed that guy lol. Thank you so much for taking your time out and answering my questions.
James: Thank you for having me.
