I lived in the midwest for a year and I decided to start djing to earn some extra money. I’ve always loved music and I was familiar with djing software so I figured I could pick it up easily.
I sent in my resume to a djing company and soon I had an interview. The owner of the company asked me to meet him in the lobby of a hotel near Detroit, Michigan. After talking about my resume and making a point to tell me, “You’re extremely well spoken.”, he said that I was at the top of his list. I figured I had the job.
There was one final test: he said he needed to know if I was confident enough to speak in front of strangers. As if he pulled it out of thin air, he handed me a microphone that was clearly wired for the hotel lobby.
Him: I want you to pretend that you’re introducing newlyweds. Introduce the bridal party and then the happy couple.
(Then he handed me the microphone)
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, magic in it.
