#011 Meet Motiff
When it comes to music, Motiff can do just about anything. He’s an artist, producer, DJ, and songwriter. He frequently works alongside musicians like Pit Bull, Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan, and Jennifer Lopez.
But his rise to success wasn’t an easy one. He moved to America from Venezuela as a child. He didn’t speak any English. And he had to help care for his father who was sick.
His parents weren’t pleased that he didn’t go to college. But he promised to deliver them a GRAMMY instead of a diploma. It took him 13 years to make it happen, but he did it. And now he’s sharing what he learned about creativity, curiosity, and success.
Some things Motiff and I discuss:
“Creativity is everywhere. A lawyer has to be creative in the way they present their argument to the judge and the jury. A dental technician has to be creative in the way they build teeth.”
“If you believe in something, just keep going and do it.”
“The most beautiful thing that creators have, especially musicians and songwriters and producers, is that extra outlet. Some people have a bad day at work and they’re driving home and they’re miserable. They have no outlet, like they can’t grab a guitar and pour it all out.”
